There are twenty-five Skirmish (can Cooperative play these) and 50 Multiplayer maps! These maps can be huge & take 1/2 hour+ to complete each one. You'll need practice on the game mechanics & user interface before enjoying the game.
Wonderful graphics and sound effects. Very nice map scenery. Developers try to model close to "reality", but also cut-in some game play-ability realities. Begin with Company of Heroes and graduate to playing this game; it is much more "realistic". And, the attention to detail is a nice touch. For instance, your flamethrower burns out the enemy in a house, the nearby trees catch on fire,and, as the house burns down,you get neat window glass breaking sounds throughout the house...Form and separate units at will: You can have any type of units in same squad, then disband them and reform another infantry group.
No, you don't get a paratrooper squad where you can hit a fire-up button which makes them Supermen. Machine gun fire doesn't suppress, it will kill your men quickly. It doesn't take eight squads of engineers to kill one infantry man in a squad; snipers can't stand in front of a MG Bunker and not get killed; there is no population cap, no base building, and therefore, no base rushing. Blob attacks will get you decimated. There is no cute button you can hit and all of your units magically retreat in a hurry. No "millimeter health left" on a tank, that is also magically healing itself, as it retreats. And so on...
Annoying: Overview map - INF are dots, Vehicles are arrows: "Where the heck are my Engineers? Oh crap, where is the guy with the toolbox?" Micromanaging units can be over-the-top when your numbers grow large in battles.Read more ›
Correction: THIS GAME IS NOT ACTIVATED ON STEAM. IT IS DOWNLOADED THROUGH AMAZON.COM, AND CAN BE ADDED MANUALLY TO YOUR STEAM LIBRARY. CREDIT TO UNDEAD RUFUS FOR CORRECTING ME.
There is a pretty complex engine to determine, when a tank gets completely destroyed, so you have to know were to place your shoots. Most of the time tanks just get immobilised or the turret gets destroyed and can be fixed, if you can retrive your tank. Just as important as knowing where to place a good shoot, is knowing how to place your tank. Side and rear armour is generally very weak, so learning how to position your tank is very important. The game engine also takes into account how the armour is sloped compared to a incoming round. Sometimes angeling your tank a little can make all the difference.
The graphics look good and the developers are continuously updating the game with new units, and gameplay improvements. Pretty much every building on the map can be used as cover or can get destroyed in spectacular explosions, so the maps is constantly changing.
I am going on a wild goose chase right now downloading 3 patches including a 858 meg patch so I can see if I can patch them in one at a time to play with my pal who didn't use an old amazon gift card to get his, he just went to steam directly. For those who did get the amazon copy here is a link for all known patches to the game [...] well its the site you have to copy paste it in since I am not sure if that counts as a product link.
Hopefully in the next 20 mins I can play with my friend who is already doing side stuff now, and I can get him back to the keyboard before I get bored and do side things.
