Based on a true story, you play as Sergeant Matthew Baker, who reluctantly leads a squad of 12 men called, "Baker's Dozen". You lead your men through eight days of the battle for Normandy, beginning with the night drops before D-Day to the final battle to hold Hill 30. Throughout the game, Baker struggles with the fact that his decisions have the power to both save the lives of his friends and to end them.
The night before D-Day, June 5, 1944: The paratroopers of the 101st Airborne Division are dropped into Normandy and scattered behind enemy lines. As Sgt. Baker, you lead your squad through eight harrowing days that will define history, and unite you forever as brothers in arms.
The game has real military tactics, as well as battles that were actually fought by the 101st Airborne. Locations are recreated by visits to the locations of the battles and by using old photos taken before and during the operation.
The game features tactical gameplay by allowing the player to directly control where his squads should position themselves and at which enemies they should suppress or flank. This control system does not stop the action as it allows the player to bring up the control interface with a simple push of a button in real time.
Brothers in Arms : Road to Hill 30's gameplay consists of two basic concepts: Supressive fire and flanking. Enemies can be suppresed by being shot either by you or your AI squad, this makes the enemies unable to shoot as often and with less accuracy. Once enemies have been supressed the concept of flanking comes into play, while enemy has been supressed either you or your squad AI can go around the enemy and eliminate them.
