    ...on the 'Hardened' difficulty setting. I was wondering if anyone else finished the final mission in the trainyard by spending most of their time cowering under the train carriages, momentarily darting out to blow up a tank with the 88mm gun, letting the Stukas take care of the last 2 tanks for you (bad German pilots?), and then retreating back up to a small little niche in the wall near where your platoon initially enters the level and sheltering there like a crying girlie-man while the 2 minute reinforcement timer ticks down.

    I did! Even after slaying all 5 tanks and the APC many times, I could never survive the 2 minute countdown period when the German troops overrun your line without getting mowed down while reloading or switching weapons. All in all I seemed to spend more time using the F5/F9 quicksave keys than the actual game control keys, but overall I thought the United Offensive was a good expansion pack...at least as good as the original.

    I ended up at the end of the platform with a small collection of firearms. I ran out of ammo at the end so had to resort to clubbing soldiers hoping a niper wouldn't pick me off. I loved the game, even bette then the original.
    I also found despite the graphics improvements it ran better as well. All in all a great port :)

    Yeah, that's pretty much how I beat it, except that I took out the last two tanks with the 88 (didn't know that the Stukas would help there). I died MANY TIMES on that level, escpecially since with my current machine the FPS dropped into single digits quite a few times. I used the 88 and then hid behind the sandbags on the flatcar right behind and to the right of the 88 when the Stukas came. The time I finally beat it the 2 minute countdown started, I had a sliver of health left and one clip for my Gewer 43 as I cowered behind the sandbags. I somehow managed to kill 3 germans without dying and was getting shot at by a fourth when the level ended. I want to crank up the difficulty but I'm going to wait until I get a G4 upgrade so I can increase the detail settings AND get better FPS. :)
