3. Avanti Savoia!


Length: 2 chapters

Playtime: ~1 hour




Remember the footage showing a soldier in full plate mail and a massive machine gun? This is that mission, and boy is it satisfying... at first.



It starts off with an Italian soldier, Luca Vicenzo Cocchiola, recounting his memories in the war to his daughter, as you tear enemies to shreds in a hail of glorious bullet storms. Players are empowered more than ever in this mission and turned into hulking juggernauts of death. I tried to keep count of how many Central Powers enemies I annihilated and lost count.

After that deliciously enjoyable sequence, you're stripped of your armor and reduced to a lowly grunt in a burning country land; in fact, the Central Powers have blown up half of a mountain to rain down burning rubble down on the entire skirmish.




Once again, you're shoved into a hellscape of barbed wire, fire, bullets, rubble, bodies, cold metal, and just all-out desperation. You gun your way to victory like before, but this time you have to plan your moves and actually think strategically to survive, or you'll be blasted by turrets, bombarded by shell fire, or burned to a crisp by those damned flamethrowers.
