9th Company Roots of Terror is an action-oriented real-time strategy game based on actual events that took place during the Soviet military campaign in Afghanistan.
9th Company follows the story of a ragged band of young recruits undergoing brutal training in Uzbekistan’s Fergana Valley and culminates with a bloody stand against the Mujahideen warriors on a nameless mountain top in Afghanistan. It’s the Battle of Thermopylae all over again: one Russian fighter against 10 Afghanis!
9th Company recreates in detail the events that took place during the last large-scale Soviet military operation. Few know the history: the 9th Company of the 345th Guards Airborne Regiment came under heavy fire on “Hill 3234” on January 7th, 1988. They managed to stop several attacks by an estimated 400 Mujahideen and Pakistani mercenaries and held their position for two gory days. The company lost 6 men, and the remaining 28 of the total 39 were wounded. Two 9th Company soldiers were posthumously awarded the Golden Star medal and the title of Soviet Hero.

Liked the movie it was made after and I like the game too, as it conveys a lot of that dark humour and tension from the movie (btw, you can see the whole movie with subtitles on YouTube)

The game takes your company of Soviet rookies through their tour of duty in Afghanistan, by making it through a bunch of missions. You can only take a certain number of them on a mission, so it's good to rotate guys a bit, to give all the experience they need for the hard final battles. It has nice pre-battle squad equipment management options and off-map close support options, which get better if you complete missions well. Interesting and rather difficult missions also teach you a lot about history and the nature of guerilla warfare in Afghanistan.

It's possibly a bit too short so not all that much replay value, but if you play through it once every couple of years it'll be fresh enough. ;)

10 missions and one secret final mission.

No base building, You control soldiers and vehicles in a manner similar to Theatre of War and sometimes you will get air and artillery support, and scripted reinforcements.

The game is hard you will fight against a superior number of enemies in addition the camera and gameplay feels clunky, the cover system is not as functional as in Men of War. The AI is not the best and your soldiers and vehicles will break lines to chase a random solitary enemy

The game is not bad but buy it only if you are really interested in it.

Looks like it has great potential but no way of configuring controls yourself and even worse is you can't rotate the camera unless you have a 3 buttoned mouse!

I picked up this Russian made RTS game in the Steam sale.
The game is a tactical level RTS that follows the the 9th Company of the 345th OPPD through 9 years of warfare in Afghanistan against the insurgents and yes it is the same 9th Company in the film 9th Company. The game even has clips from the film.
The campaign is good but short and you do a nice variety of missions. The tutorial at the start is comprehensive enough for you to get a quick grasp of the controls.
It also has some nice realistic elements. Soldiers can get injured and can't fight until attended by a medic and if you're not fast enough may die from their injuries. You also get off screen support fro missions such as D-30 artillery strikes, rocket artillery and Hind CAS (all of which are extremely deadly) and so on. If you lose your radioman you lose your access to support. For some missions you get armoured vehicles to control and if these get hit you can bail the crews before the vehicle brews up. It's best to take care of them as they provide a great fire-power advantage over your enemy.
The game does have issues though nothing severe. You can't map your own controls and moving the camera around is quite sluggish. The AI have a tendency to wander off and attack enemies though this may be down to me not knowing the best way to control the troops. For some reason all of your soldiers are privates apart from a couple of warrant officers. There's also some translation errors but this is forgiveable. There are also two missions with some bugs that force you to reload in order to get through them. also there is a mod for the game that improved it a bit .
Overall I think it's a good game. when I think of a game that I purchased and I write about it. I always ask myself "Would I buy this again?" In this case I probably would.
