Up against overwhelming odds, you must complete your missions incorporating stealth, guile, speed, and aggression.

Mission objectives include blowing railway tracks, kidnapping enemy officers, and destroying convoys. Be warned that much of this activity will take place behind enemy lines!

Command troops by either using group control RTS style "point and click" commands or by using the direct control feature for individual units, providing a more realistic and precise style of play. The choice is yours.

This is one of the funnest games that I have ever played and have played it several times with each time being slightly different. One of things that I loved about this game is how you can fix up damaged tanks and other vehicles if you have the tool box to do so. And how you can grab guns, ammo, explosives, and more tank shells from people and vehicles in the game. I love the way bodies and equipment fly threw the air when they are blown up. Overall, this game is a 5+ and is worth buying. You will not be disappointed. Enjoy!

This game is addictive fun ...

As a 31yo gamer I've played many different combat titles and the fun factor on this game gives nothing up to a high-dollar fps title.

I enjoy games like Call of Duty, Medal of Honor, Battlefield etc, but this one is a little more tactical...

If all you want to do is pick up a rifle and squeeze off an unlimited amount of ammo while progressing through a linear map and storyline, than this is probably not the game for you.;)

If you like to pick up a rifle and some anti-tank grenades and sneak up behind a squad of unsuspecting Jerry's and take a bite out of their sandwich, than this game is right up your ally, ahem, alley.

There are about a half-dozen missions per ally nation you play: US, Russia etc.

Each mission has objectives you must complete to advance to the next mission. Sometimes the troops you have remaining after one mission relates to the number you are supplied on a subsequent mission, so take care of your comrades;)

Some missions may require you to keep 'X' number of guys alive while rallying at a rendevous point on the map ... another objective of a certain mission might be to annihilate the enemy completely, but whatever the objectives are, you will have fun getting there and using the necessary tactics to ensure victory.

As far as gameplay is concerned, you assign temperaments/tactics to your troops and then equip them as you see fit. For example, you can set guys up to hold-a-position or move-at-free-will, or hold-their-fire, or fire-at-will, or return-fire only if fired upon, etc.

Set your troops up and then order them to move out and do as you command.

This game has beautiful graphics, and very nice innovations in gameplay such as the first person control which really makes it so much more interesting and personal. My beefs are the sometimes painful micromanagement, and less realism than I would have ideally wanted. Still, I've had great time playing it.

If you buy this (and it is a good game), and your copy was published by Sold Out Software, send it back immediately. Sold Out Software added an extra layer, and part of that layer is designed to destroy your computer if you have software they disagree with, such as Daemon Tools. If you don't mind that, because you think nobody uses Daemon Tools for anything but piracy, still avoid it because it partially deployed and messed me up part-way after I reformatted and installed without Daemon Tools. It is a good game, but you have to avoid Sold Out Software.

This game is terrific. The concept, art, detail, AI are all top notch. The only failing I see in this game is that when replaying a mission, the whole load process occurs once more. Game restarts should be faster. The easy level of the game is also quite challenging. That in my opinion should satisfy the most critical gamer. Overall for the price, this game cannot be beat!!

This is a fun game. I usually play Flight Simulators, Falcon 4.0, Silent Hunter, Total War type games.
This game is totally different. You control your main character, and on a lot of missions you will have a small squad at your disposal. Your squad can go on the attack, be used defensively, or do nothing but hump supplies and ammo if you so choose. They actually are great for ambushing the enemy or covering your retreat! You also get to equip the squad with whatever type of weapons and equipment you want. This is necessary because if you give one of your men a machine gun and not enough machine gun ammmo, he is all but useless. You can also give your men hand grenades, which they will use. Also, most times your remaining squad members carry over into the next mission. You will learn to stuff their backpacks with expendables because you start each mission with a limited amount of weapons and ammo unless you bring your own.
In the game you are given a series of missions which follow a story for the particular faction you are playing- US,UK,Russian, or German.
There are lots of weapons, ammo, vehicles, land mines, mine sweepers, etc. to use in the game world.
There is also a lot of thinking and strategy that goes along with each mission. The AI is not all that bad at stopping you from achieving your objective.
Almost every structure in the game can be destroyed. If you come across an enemy sniper in a building for example, you can use dynamite, an anti tank grenade, bazooka, or tank you have captured to blow the building up and eliminate the sniper!
There are so many weapons available to you in this game!
