* Stay behind Cover - At times the enemy fire can be quite fierce so stick behind walls and objects and lean to the side or over objects when firing to avoid getting shot to pieces.
* Look out for ammo and health - You'll find yourself needing ammo and health throughout the game - these are found as either enemy weapons or boxes of ammo and first aid kits at various locations on each level. If you need them then pick them up.
* Compass - Your compass highlights your objectives locations and also the location of friendly and enemy soldiers. Makes things a lot easier if you pay attention to it.
* Weapon Upgrades – after a certain number of kills without dying with each weapon you can unlock certain upgrades to improve your aim and the weapons recoil. It's worth using the weapons you prefer more and to upgrade them fully for later on. The sniper rifle and a machine gun and particularly useful when fully upgraded.
* Enemies- Always try to kill the enemies on the mounted guns or the tougher enemies or those with rocket launchers first as they are more likely to inflict the most damage to you.
First off you need to learn how to jump from a plane. Fairly simple stuff, use the left stick to walk towards the door of the plane and jump out. Then use the left stick again to aim towards the target and try land as close to the middle as you can. More points are awarded the closer you are to the middle and how well you land
On the second jump you press A to change the type of landing you carry out to a flared landing.
Once you've done all three jumps it's time to get stuck in.
* SECURE TOWN OF ADANTI
* DESTROY TOWN HALL AA GUNS
* DESTROY HILL HOUSES AA GUN
* DESTROY NORTHEAST GATE AA GUN
After the cut scene you need to jump out of the plane and head towards one of the green flares on the ground below. From here you'll need to use your compass and head towards each one of the objectives in turn. Depending on where you land will decide which objectives are nearest to your location.
I opted for the nearest green flare and headed for the large building on the left with the AA gun on the roof. Firstly you need to clear the enemy soldiers from around the front of the building - start with the guy on the mounted gun then head to the right hand side and up the stairs and into the building.
From the main hall go up the stairs and kill the enemy solider on the mounted gun and then kill the remaining enemies and continue on up the other stairs to the roof. Kill all the enemies on the roof and then plant the explosive charges on the two AA guns.
Head back down through the building and go to the right. Kill the enemies round the corner and in the nearby buildings and then head through the tunnel. Kill the soldier on the mounted gun and then enter the house killing the enemies as you go. Kill the enemies out the back beside the AA gun then head out and plant the explosive charge on it.
One more AA gun to go, use your compass to head towards the final objective. When you pass through the tunnel there will be quite a few enemies ahead. Continue forward killing all of the enemies. When you reach the final AA gun kill the enemies nearby and then plant the explosive charge on the gun.
OBJECTIVE: ASSEMBLE WITH AIRBORNE AT NORTH GATE
Use the compass to head towards the objective marker.
When you reach the objective you'll come under heavy fire so stay behind cover.
OBJECTIVE: LOCATE MISSING SNIPER TEAM
Run into the building across from you and go upstairs. Exit onto the balcony and jump onto the nearby roof and kill the enemies below. Drop down and go to the right and into the next building. Clear the outside of enemy soldier then head into the building across from you and go up the stairs to find the sniper team.
OBJECTIVE: ELIMINATE ENEMY COMMANDER
Pick up the sniper rifle and aim out of the window towards the objective marker and kill the enemy commander.

OBJECTIVE: ELIMINATE GERMAN OFFICERS (3 REMAINING)
Head up the road and to the right and flank the enemies gathered outside of the building. You once again need to get inside the building and make your way towards the roof. There is an officer on each level of the building. The first is in the room on the bottom right when you enter the building. The second is up stairs in the room above you and the last one is on the roof. Kill the three officers to end this mission.
* SECURE PAESTUM RUINS
* SABOTAGE FUEL CONTAINERS
* DESTROY AMMO CACHE
*SABOTAGE ENEMEY COMUNICATIONS
* DISABLE COMMUNICATIONS ANTENNA
* DISABLE COMMUNICATIONS RARIO
Jump out of the plane and head for the green flare directly below you. The first objective is very close by so head towards it and get ready for some enemy fire.
To destroy the fuel tanks you need to shoot them until the explode. Destroy the two tanks then head South East towards the ruins where you need to destroy the ammo cache. Kill the enemies on route and then plant the explosive charge on the ammo cache. You need to get out quickly as the building is about to come down. Get outside and regroup with your squad.
Head towards the next objectives on the other side of the level. Head up the small hill and go to the right and flank the enemy. Take out the enemy on the mounted gun then head towards the mounted gun. Proceed down the path and kill the enemies ahead. You'll reach a building that has wooden walkways going up it. Head up these walkways killing the enemies as you go until you reach the top. If you have a sniper rifle then you can pick off a lot of the enemies below here.
Head down the other side and open the nearby door by shooting the lock. Then kill the enemies as you make your way towards the radio tent. Lob a grenade inside and that should blow the radio.
Turn and face the building you climbed down from and shoot the antenna that is located on the top.
OBJECTIVE: ASSEMBLE WITH 5th ARMY DEMO TEAM
Head towards the objective marker on your compass. You'll meet up with the squad. You'll soon be ambushed by enemy units.

Kill the enemies then shoot the two red barrels near the large guns, then head towards the last marker and kill the enemies on route and plant the explosive charge on the AA Gun to end the level.
SAVED BY SACRIFICE
* SECURE AUDOUEVILLE BATTERY
* COLLECT M18 BUNDLE
* CLEAR AND SECURE SPOTTING TOWER
* DESTROY RADAR ANTENNA RELAY.
Head towards the green marker below and if possible land on the roof. Climb onto the roof and collect the first M18 bundle. After this an enemy tank will attack. Ignore the tank for the moment - just be sure to avoid it's fire.
Around this building are the other parts for the M18 - collect them all.
OBJECTIVE: KNOCK-OUT TIGER TANK
Use the M18 to destroy the tank - it should only take about 3-4 shots. Then head to the East and up the side of the hill. Head through the building and you'll be told you need to clear the spotting tower. Watch out for the mounted guns.
Progress through the trenches and into the spotting tower killing all the enemies you encounter and then kill all of the enemies inside the tower. Head onto the roof and kill any enemies you spot below then jump down and head for the objective marker.
Head back towards where you started this level and make your way towards the Radar antenna relay. Watch out for the mounted guns. When you enter the trenches go to the left and kill all the attacking enemies and the guys on the mounted gun before moving on. Head inside the building and make your way up onto the roof and plant an explosive charge on the radio antenna relay. Head back down to the entrance of this building an a new path has opened up nearby.
OBJECTIVE: CLEAR CENTRAL CASEMATE
Make your way through the tunnel and into the central casemate. There are a few enemies inside so be careful. There are plenty inside so just take your time and kill all the enemies in each room before going through to the next one. When you reach the marker a cut scene will begin.
OBJECTIVE: CLEAR AND SECURE PILLBOX (2 REMIANING)
This next part is tricky due to the sheer number of enemies around. Make your way down the right hand side killing the enemies you encounter and get into the trench. Kill the enemies then get inside the pillbox. Shoot all the enemies inside and on the lower level then make your way back outside. Exit the trench and make your way towards the other objective. Enter the next pillbox and do the same as before - kill all the enemies inside on both levels to complete this operation.

Use the gammon grenades to destroy the tank then make your way out onto the streets and towards the next marker. Inside this building you need to kill the enemies to clear the MG nest and to also shoot the plunger to disable it. Once this is complete head back onto the streets and towards the next objective. Enter the building and climb the stairs and then the ladder to reach the top level. Kill the enemies here and then shoot the radio equipment to disable it.

When most of the nearby enemies are dead go up the stairs and jump onto the train to plant the charges. There are two at the first section of the train and one more at the read. Go back up the stairs and towards the rear of the train. Kill the enemy soldiers and watch out for the sniper behind the iron beams at the top.

At the end of the wire you followed is the hellbox detonator. Swap it with a weapon then fire it to destroy the flak tower and to complete the game.
ONLINE GAME MODES
I'll not go into too much detail for the online mode as that could fit into a whole guide on it's own. Basically you have to kill the enemy and have some fun. The game modes available for you to play are:
TEAM DEATHMATCH - Chose your team - Allied or Axis - then enter the fire-fight. The team with the highest score at the end of the time limit is the winner.
TEAM DEATHMATCH AIRBORNE - The team you select determines where you begin on the map. If you select Allies, you start the game from an air drop. If you select axis you begin on the ground. The team with the highest score a the end of the time limit is the winner.
OBJECTIVE AIRBORNE - Chose your team, then fight to capture and hold three flags on the map. The team to capture all three flags is the winner.
Hopefully this walkthrough has helped you through the single player campaign and got you past any areas that were causing you problems.
