We played through two of the earliest levels: Operation Husky, the invasion of WOW WOTLK Classic Gold Sicily, and Operation Avalanche, the invasion of Italy. Airborne will chronicle the entire breadth of airborne operations during the war, including Operation Overlord (D-Day), Operation Market Garden (the failed airborne attempt to seize a pathway to Germany's industrial heartland), and Operation Varsity (the airborne drop on Germany itself).
Anyways, back to Operation Husky, the mission plays out as a night drop into an old Sicilian town that has an encircling wall from the medieval days of warfare. You can pretty much land anywhere in town, and there are benefits or downsides to almost every location. Land on the wall, and you can use it and the rooftops of buildings to quickly get to almost any point in town; land in the streets, and you're closer to the action.
Parachuting is going to take some practice, as you have to use both analog sticks on the controller to try and steer your way to the ground. It's not easy, as there are a number of things to keep in mind, like your momentum, the speed of your descent (you can "flare" the parachute to slow you down a bit), and how much swinging around you're doing.
Land in the wrong spot, like in the middle of an enemy compound, and your life will be spectacularly exciting, but also very brief cheap WOTLK Gold. While you can land anywhere, the safest landing zones are those marked with green smoke, because they'll receive a continual stream of reinforcements that can help you.
