Anyone played Brothers in Arms II (ps2)?

I really liked the first Brothers in Arms (Road to Hill 30 or 330 or something). I’ve blown through the other WW II shooter series like Call of Duty (loved it) and Medal of Honor (ditto). BIA has the squad-control feature which is cool, but rips the sequel, saying among other things that the AI is just brutal. I was going to rent it over the weekend but my local BB and Hollywood Vid don’t carry it; I can get it used for about 15-20 bucks. Any opinions? Am I better off w God of War or something else?
