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!

Even if the the family look is there, Wargame: AirLand Battle isn't just Wargame: European Escalation with planes. The games are easier to handle and the campaign changes its format. All this without damaging the strategic content that made the studio's lust. The wannabe soldier will be happy to find hundreds of available units, and it will be time consuming before you can master everything during online games. The players really fond of change might regret the seriousness of the graphics and interface.Hard to learn and tough to play well, this game will attract only the hardest-core RTS player, the kind who cares about realistic combat and deep strategy. This is a game that will repay effort with success, but many will find it too much effort for not enough payoff.Wargame: AirLand Battle is a great game for those that enjoy realism in the planning and execution of skirmishes and battles. It will certainly present a challenge to those used to diving straight in and getting to grips with the nuances of the games with little effort. This is definitely a game that requires your full attention from the get-go and will provide lasting fun through the campaigns and into the multiplayer component.The RTS genre will be alive and kicking until the day they stop making games like this one.

One thing the developer did ruins this game for me...there is a 20 minute time limit to battles in single player campaign mode. This was not there in European Escalation so that game is better for single player as you can take your time and play your way and not be rushed by a timer.

Since we are paying money for this, the developers should make the time limit something players can control.

The most complicated game of rock, paper, scissors you will ever play and one of the prettiest too. Runs on any machine, and completely unique in the world of RTS games. Steer clear of the mess that is Red Dragon and start with the best game in the series.

Wargame: Airland Battle is easily the most detail-oriented, intricate RTS game I've played to date. The game excels in textures, dynamic effects,unit diversity, and multiplayer options. Where it struggles in, however, is the learning curve. While the game, once mastered becomes an absolute blast to play, it IS ruthless and unforgiving to new players. And expect to be a new player for a while.

But if you can oversee the learning curve, there is nothing else that hampers this game. It is smart enough to automatically assign the ideal graphic settings for your computer, intense enough to offer 10 vs. 10 player skirmishes on a variety of enormous maps, and open enough to make almost every action on the battlefield your call.

In short, this game is a must-have for any RTS fans, hands down. If you aren't one, though, I strongly urge you to consider the learning curve, as it the steepest in any game I've ever played.

Amazing and breath taking game. Take a seat, lunch a A-10 and watch him go. Burn forests with tanks , drop troops with blackhawks, sent tanks and watch them destroy everything on their way, target a enemy with a altillery and see the enemy being blown to pieces. 9/10 Good game, buy it and enjoy the view :)

Yes. Buy this is you like proper strategy games. Multiplayer centric, don't play this for the SP experience. Worth every penny, more if you have friends to play with.

Do not treat this like Star Craft or C&C - it is more like SupCom, minus base building and "super unit rush" - you need to think about what you are doing.

Graphics work on nearly any machine conceivable and cross platform.

10/10

For those going "How can it run on nearly any machine?" please check this screenshot of minimum settings.
