About This Game

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!

Before reeding, please accepte that i have bad Englsih :)
90 hourse online and 300 offline game time.

Short: This game are taking the RTS in a new lvl and twist. Cause the game have made it massive and "smal" in the same time. I feel the developer have made it realistic and smoth. And I feel like i have the countroll over whats happening while playing.

Long: I go after 6 thing i going to rank. GIGS-CO

Gameplay:
I find it realy great. It is many thing that bring it easy to play, but in same time funny to countrol. One eks: can give many comands; move fast, move, attack, spread, regroup, split. This is very importan when it comes to winning or losing. (You can say witch direction thay gonne stay at if you are holding in left mouse butten).

The zoom out and in fuction are working so well, and so smoth. Thats make it easy to play and fun. The redring is being well done. When both of this is working very well, It vil make the game play both funny and "easy".

Unit countrol is Good and Realistic. It is easy to control them when you have many ordes to control them with. And it realistic cause of many resons, eks. tank. fuel, accrresy, experience, ammo, speed on road and off road, optic, range, camuflage.
All this are making the game realistic.

Tha combat system are very good. It is like in real life. Sitting in a tank. Does you see the enemy. shoot them or hold.
Units does have moral and experience. That make them better or worse.

This Game does also have a very good AI. I have played likly 50 RTS. And many of them is very sad story. Couse of a bad AI, but a good game is ruind.
Score 6/6

Interface:
When you have played it a few hours. It will feel much better than the first hour. From my opinon, it was hard to know how thing work and wich unti and unittype tag was hard to learn. But after a few hours game time, It was much more easy to "use".

The tutorial is easy to step 3. Inantry. From here a person must use his brain in a very diffrent way. It took my 12 hours of skrimish and online to complete the last one.

The interface is a little hard to "accept" new players. Witch making it hard and boring the first hours. But when you have gone in to the system and gain some experience. Fun as *****. (sory for bad use of words :( ).
Score 4/6

Grafic:
The job is done well. Looking good on best grafic. The zoom in and out sn redring while playing is making the experience soo good. The terreng is flat. (mostly for making the gameplay better and more fun). If you zoom close in. The detail is HUGE! Everything from a soldier to a tank to houses, bringdes, houses, trees, grass and so on.
Score 6/6

System Requirements:
Find it a little high. Can be boring to have a bad Pc and playing and lagging so on... But for what of details and redring. I find it well optimased.
Score 5/6

Campaign:
Find it funny, and both easy and hard. It is alot of fun while playing. Both part is fun playing and alot of experience that helps to play online. I have read and fund out that people are complaining since it is a tima limmits on 20 min. I find it fine. Couse playing one match against the AI in 90min. Than I have likly 20 match agan... It is a good move from my opinon.
4.5/6

Online:
Was funny to play, before the release of Red Dragon.
But I fund the multiplayer funny and "hard". It is a little problem here and there. (mostly caused by players). But online is like offline = FUNNY! And the community, never try to join. Never going to either.
4/6

Total: 5/6 or 6/6
PS. Funny and challenging game!

When troops run out of ammo they charge with knifes.
When knifes break they fight with bare hands.
When arms are broken you are allowed to leave the field.

When tank runs out of ammo you charge the enemy and ram them.
When tank treads break you pursue on foot.
Only when the tank is on fire may the tankers leave the field.

When plane run out of ammo it rams.
When plane is severly damaged it preforms Hirro-Kari and commits a kamikaze.
Only when wings are gone is when the pilot may leave his plane.

This is the code of honor for all PACT troops.

This is a amazing game, if you have what it takes.
Like: How do you know about cold-war era military equipment?
Otherwise, the lack of adequate in-game guidance can makes this game a horrible experience for you.
So, for a RTS rookie who can only beats hard AI in company of heroes and someone only knows little about coldwar , I regret buying this game.

If you want to invest your entire life learning how the units work and what ordinace does what and when, then play this game. This is not a game for casual players. This is a war sim. Just like war if you go in not knowing yourself and your enemy you lose, like rage quit lose, every, every time.

Good game, very hard to get to grips with, if you're looking to pick up a Wargame i would recommend the newest one Wargame: Red Dragon, it has better features and overall more of a solid, finished game .

Briliant Game.
Very in depth Warfare simulator, simultaneously complex and simple with a wonderful deck building mechanic that I personally can just spend hours in, and have.

This game is a pretty decent game. It takes thought and some time to learn all the mechanics behind what to do. If you are new to the game i would go into skirmish just to get a feel of how the game feels.
