Over dit spel

9de Company Roots of Terror is een actiegeörienteerd real-time strategiespel gebaseerd op werkelijke gebeurtenissen die zich deden plaatsvinden tijdens de militaire veldtocht van het Sovjetleger in Afghanistan.
9de Company volgt het verhaal van een slordige bende van jonge recruten die in de Fergana-vallei in Oezbekistan een wrede training ondergaan, uitmondend in een bloedige stand tegen de krijgers van de Moedjahedien, op een naamloze berg in Afghanistan. Het is de Slag om Thermopylae van voren af aan: één Russische strijder tegen 10 Afghanen!
9de Company herschept in detail de gebeurtenissen die zich deden plaatsvinden tijdens de laatste grootschalige militaire operatie van de Sovjets. Slechts weinigen kennen het verhaal: de 9de compagnie van de 345ste garde Luchtlandingstroepen-Regiment kwam onder zwaar vuur te liggen op "Heuvel 3234" op 7 januari, 1988. Ze kregen het voor elkaar om meerdere aanvallen door ongeveer 400 Moedjahedien en Pakistaanse huurlingen af te schermen, en behielden hun positie voor twee bloederige dagen. De compagnie verloor zes man, en de overblijvende 28 van de in totaal 39 raakten gewond. Twee soldaten van de 9de compagnie werden postuum onderscheiden met de Gouden Ster-medaille en de titel van Sovjetheld.

Too difficult and the controls are very bad. Hard to find where you're supposed to go and what to do for orders. Crap.

Great idea for a game; only game about the Soviet-Afghan War. Good war for a game- who doesn't want to root out insurgents and battle Mujahids in the mountains? And it is kinda fun. However, it is very, very poorly done, however. First of all, fun fact- all Russian soldiers in this war had crippling mental illness- also a little known fact. They don't take orders, they don't stay in cover, they refuse to heal each other, and they have an interesting tendency to walk right up to a Mujahideen machine gun nest and get wounded, then scream so that everyone else wants to run in front of the machinegun too. The command system is very poor- soldiers receptiveness to commands aside- you have lots of control over a single guy, but can't command more than one guy like that. This makes for a very unwieldy fighting experience against a historically incorrect enemy. If you value historical accuracy, you will be sorely disappointed. You go up against heavily armed, well-trained, entrenched defenders, who outnumber you and have fully modern weapons in 1981 and 1982- thus, they are not only historically inaccurate, but also really hard to kill and quickly drive you to madness after a single Afghan you thought you killed in an artillery strike shoots down a helicopter and kills twenty of your men. On that note, actually, the Afghans shoot down your helicopters like nobody's buisness in 1981- when the first Soviet chopper was downed in '86!!! This all being said, 9th Company is a very hard game that will quickly drive you to madness. I mean, I've already lost several hundred men in 2.8 hours, and am still sorry for all the Soviets that died under me. Get it on sale if you really want to-for like two dollars- and give it a try if you want to. Otherwise, it isn't worth ten bucks.

This piece of manure doesn't work. You can't even complete the tutorial mission because your soldier refuses to plant a mine, which is a mission objective.
I don't think I'd be able to play the game even if I managed to pass the tutorial, because the community forum for this game is full of reports of game-breaking bugs.
You'd like to pass the buggy missions with cheats? That's cute. Even the debug mode doesn't work (which should normally let you open the console and enter cheats).
Stay the hell away from this game. Stay away from it even if you got it for free. I requested a refund but Steam refused it (because I bought it a long time ago)

It looks to be an okay game, but... I thought it was free? I mean, it's not something I'd play, I don't like RTS games, but if you're into RTS games, then pick this up for free/cheaply!

Good overall gameplay and solid tactical gameplay.

-fun tactical combat
-good mission variety
-fun air and artillery supports
-mediocre physics
-destructibel environments
-large maps
-large amount of troops and vehicles

-bad camera controls
-a medium variety of bugs
-some missions take to long
-lots of mission timers
-soldiers are incredibley inacerate
-no editor
-no multiplayer or skirmish
-no selectible reinforcements so you will have a pre made group every time it happens

if your a men of war player looking for a men of war in the cold war dont bother. but if you are like me who are just looking a run of the mills average tactical combat game thats based off of a movie then play it. If you liked rambo III buy it.

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.

Play as the stranded Soviet 9th Company in 1988 Afghanistan. Cut scenes include scenes from "9 rota" the Russian-Finnish-Ukrainian film about the battle at Hill 3234; which left the 9th company all but in ruins. Similar mechanics to the Theater of War franchise make this an rather difficult but very elaborate RTS, I wouldn't claim it for the faint of heart.

I just wish this game is a bit more polished with less bugs.

There are a whole bunch that you will meet when you playing though the story and if it happens you have to load from preivous saves.

The graphics for this game is actually pretty good with movie clips in it too.
The music is fine but not super.
The control is a bit wacked but manageble.
The fight is actually really fun. You have to fight enemy of over whelming numbers.
IT's a RTS that in will keep you pretty busy.

I guess for a low budget game it's pretty fine in it's own right but if the game company had more money i am sure this game can be improved much further.

7/10 for scoring.

I don't recommend people to buy this game unless it's in a discount or in a package.
IF you already own it.. give it a chance and try it out. ignore the low rating.

Great RTS game. I enjoyed every aspect of this game. Some of the missions were actually difficult to complete, especially when you get ambushed while trying to clear a mine field. Some might find the fact that your reallly need to keep close watch on all your troops movements at all times, especially if you split them up into 2 groups for a 2 pronged attack, a bit tedious, but I liked having to be constantly aware of my soldiers because you never could tell where the enemy would hit you next or when you would run into a MG nest. If I had to pic anything that was annoying, it woul dbe the AI's constant targeting of my medics, but to be honest, that made it that much more challenging and realist, 'cause the enemy probably would target medics if RL anyway. Anyway, great game and I would recommend getting it if you like rts style games.

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. ;)
