Oh, and Lebisey is based off the S-3 map of the actual battlefield:

Yeah, somehow Natty manages to create the most exciting FPS experience in the game.

Siege of Giarabub and Mersa Matruh match the aerial photography of the actual site nearly 100%. That map by Lobo is surely awesome to the max!

Don't forget MERSA MATRUH!
That map is really accurate as well. :)

thanks to Hans Werner :) those are very nice images indeed, did you take them yourself outside Carentan?

I used a ton of ref images for this map, but I haven't seen many of those you posted. During our trip to Normandy in 2008 I missed to go to this place as well  :-[ we didn't have time, as we rushed around the whole Normandy trying to see everything. (remember only Caen, St mere eglise, Crisbeq Battery, Pegasus Bridge + museum, Omaha Beach + the memorial, Utah Beach + the Utah Museum.. our friends also managed to squeeze in Melville Battery & Sword Beach)
Thinking of going back to see also Mont. St  Michel, Brecourt Manor, Ingouf farm/PHL, Omaha the bunkers (we missed them...), Melville, Juno Beach, Port-en-Bessin and more....

It feels really small when you're there (IIRC it's only about a 150km stretch of land), everywhere are streetsigns with places you recognise the names off which you want to go look at.. It's like a Theme-park!  ;D ;D

That's kinda of already on the Fan-made CD cases, most of what he says. And he's reviewing Fh1 for the most part. Barely touches Fh2.

But back OT. I really want to see moar comparison shots.

Yup it was last weekend !!! I'm going in Normandy every 6 month and I'm going on old battlefields and villages to take pictures. I did most of famous places and took lots of pictures. That's what is the most existing after doing the museum  ;D
Port en Bessin and St Lambert sur Dive maps are also really impressive by their accuracy, it's feel so strange when you are on these places and you feel to know them perfectly just because you played lots of time the map in FH2  :D

If you want to go back there, just have a look on this website, everything you have to see is in with location and contact :

Citation from the english wikipedia article about "point du hoc":

It also exists as a map in Forgotten Hope 2, a Battlefield 2 mod.

Somehow I am sure, on from this forum did that.   ;)
