Product Description

Wargame: Airland Battle

2 SIDES, 12 NATIONS, 750 UNITS: THE STRATEGY GAME REFERENCE IS BACK!

Richer, more beautiful and more accessible, Wargame AirLand Battle is the sequel to the explosive real-time strategy game Wargame European Escalation!

1985. After several months of tension between NATO and the Warsaw Pact, an incident in the North Sea suddenly sets the world on fire, starting an all-out war. Command the entire military resources of the period, and plunge into the heart of a new dynamic campaign! With the arrival of air forces, select from a phenomenal array of 750 units (including tanks, planes, helicopters, and infantry) to build your army. Engage in spectacular battles with unmatched strategic depth, on huge battlefields as large as 150km², powered by a new graphics engine.

Impressive in solo play, Wargame AirLand Battle is even more engaging online. The game features ultra-complete multiplayer modes, where up to 20 players do battle simultaneously!

if you are an rts fan or simply like modern warfare, you have to get this.
to me, its the most interesting take on the rts genre, which has been kinda stale gameplaywise,except for the likes of coh, dow2.

the game is set in the late seventies to mid eighties, the height of the cold war between nato and warsaw pact. you play either side, and develop your deck from hundreds of military units from tanks to planes to infantry, etc. this is a land based battle however so there are no ships. deck building to me is one of the funnest parts of the game. here you can choose the make up of your army. you may opt for a generic nato army or you may choose a more nation focused, specialist deck that gives you a few advantages and limitations, a british armored batallion for example.

the game seeks to realistically depict 'modern warfare', so maps are taken from actual real world sources, and vehicles have stats mimicking their real life counterparts. the battles are also played out in realistic ranges, so you will, for example, have tank battles at 1.5km ranges. this is easily done however, thanks to the well implented zoom feature of airland battle (alb), that painlessly rotates from a strategic and tactical view, that allows you to see troop movements and plan your attacks, to a close in view, that allows you to see the action at ground level, letting you appreciate the most gorgeous graphics in rts games. if youve ever wondered how a modern battle would look and sound like this is it.

this game is basically a sector grab. unlike other rts'es like starcraft 2, you essentially do not have a base per se, but need to take control of different sectors via your command vehicles.

I bought European Escalation and really never got into it a couple of years ago. I wasn't expecting much when it came to ALB, I expected pretty much the same, wow, was I wrong. This game has depth in spades, with the amount of nations and units available, it's simply amazing. I don't play online, I bought this game to play against the AI and I must say no two games are alike. You have tremendous strategy to employ, a feature that a lot of new RTS games are missing is the ability direct you AI partner, i.e., toss a flare down and ask for aid and they will send forces to your rescue. I loved this aspect in the last Red Alert, though the expansion for it removed this aspect, completely ruining a lot of the experience IMO. Simply put, this game is exceptional - I can't say enough good things about it. If you are a fan of modern warfare or you like large scale games such as Total Annihilation or the original Supreme Commander, you no doubt will highly enjoy this game. My only thing I would like to see change is balancing the nations and improving the overall sound quality. Nothing wrong with the sound, for the most part it's incredible, though I would like to see less compression and purer audio quality.

I would like to see a paid expansion possibly bringing in the last 20 years of technology and/or Asian Countries - maybe, "Asian Escalation" North & South Korea, China, Japan, India etc. The NATO and PACT weapons are from late 1950's until around 1991 or so (Cold War), would like to see this expanded to present day.

Red Dragon can't get here soon enough

Played it for two weeks

Pros:
Very realistic
Challenging
Good Variety of units

Cons:
Easy is still too difficult.
So in-depth that it may take away from the game play.

More of a multi-player, but still very fun. The number of units is incredible. Would take a while for a novice to grasp the deck building and master the multi-player side/ skirmish are fun. The campaigns are interesting.
Worth the money though.

This game is pretty in-depth with Cold War-era 80's weapon systems, with both NATO and Warsaw PACT nations very well represented.

Meant more as a multiplayer online game. It's TOUGH, and I've been a wargamer for 17 years now (SSI back in the day)

Wow... I've played plenty of RTS games... you name it. Most of those RTS games you don't even need to bother with the tutorial to figure out the controls and gameplay... it's pretty obvious. Not with this game!

The tutorial of Wargame is absolutely worthless! What were these Frenchmen thinking? Maybe they weren't thinking. C'mon people... a tutorial is suppose to walk you through the basics of a game, covering the controls and gameplay. They failed miserably at this! Now I'm forced to scour the Internet looking for basic tutorials on just how to learn to play this game. This is the only PC game that I've ever had problems figuring out... unbelievable!

This game has such great potential... what a shame they goofed-up on one of the most important aspects of a game... teaching gamers how to play it! These developers need to come out with a true tutorial on this game. I don't like giving a game just 3 stars for not even being able to play it yet... but because of the lack of thinking on the creators part... it deserves only 3 stars at this time. I'm sure I will be updating it to give it a higher score once I figure out how to play this game. Good grief man!
