Units are sluggish and unresponsive, pathfinding is absolutely terrible, units all use the same american voices for every country, the different countries themselves only look different but all play the same with the same stats, interface is confusing at best.
even at 90% off its not worth it. and the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ menu music is still playing after the game was closed and uninstalled.

I recommend that you don't buy this crap

This is pretty bad if you paid 15 bucks for it.

Not terrible if you paid 3.74. As far as RTS games go this one is rather primitive, though it does have some interesting units and the surprising presence of Czeckaslovakia, Hungary, and Romania amongst the factions, along with having some rather obscure vehicles from those nations. Aside from those points, this plays like a million other RTS games while lacking the charm of some of the more popular titles.

That being said, I paid 3.74 so I'm fine with this purchase.

This game was poorly designed for player vs. computer play. I played two games. Both multiplayer against the computer, the first time I lost, but only because I didn't have the game figured out. The second time, I had most of the resources and a heavy defense. Then eventually I had all of the resources, then I decided to wait out the oppenent and see if he'd lose his resources. No. The computer was getting more than I was. It was throwing 10 of the most expensive unit at me every 2-4 minutes. Then I would try and move my units to the computer's base. And each unit chose a different route. So my units would get picked off one by one as they were moving to the objective. This game is not something I would ever recomend. And I probably wont ever buy a game made by these developers either.

This game takes all the features and ideas that make a good RTS, and leaves them out, with the remaining husk of drek being the "Game" which they're trying to sell.
UI is awful, controls make no sense, story is thin and unengaging, art is amateurish, units uninspired.
Don't do it, save your time, your money and yourself!

Hard game and a bit crazy.
You attack a base with 100 tanks.
100 tanks die.
7/10

From reading the description of this game from its store page, I had high hopes. As a fan of military themed RTSes, I had hoped this game would have had a flair of RUSE or C&C but alas it fails dearly. Poor UI, poor interaction with units, poor tutorial; leading to a high learning curve. The premise is good but alas the substance of the game failed and thus even with its recent price cuts I can not recommend this game.

I must say that with all the inaccuracies of the timelines I almost passed on this. Funny how picky we can be when it comes to specifics with regards to history in our war games! When Steam had a 50% sale recently just could not resist in spite of the negative reviews.
The gameplay info is definitely lacking for firsttimers and did not understand about capturing the towers...first game I was destroyed in short order. Then after watching the walkthrough video posted on youtube suddenly everything became much clearer.
I will say this...this game has gotten a bum rap in my opinion from the masses...mostly those who will not buy it in the first place...my opinion there is a lot of good gameplay in this especially for the price point. Its not COH2 but also not the price. If you dont need a heavy duty strategy game but need something to kill a lil time give this a spin..especially if there is a repeat discounted pricing done.
Personally I have spent a great deal more for a lot less enjoyment.

Well yes, it is pretty rubbish particularly in this day and age. Then again, in this day and age, where Triple A titles with Triple A price tags are left wanting, we tend to turn to the smaller titles for satisfaction at a more acceptable price.
If you hanker for a bit of tank-rushing fun, with an RPG element (upgrading weaponry and vehicles, though not pre-existing ones - a nod to reality) and advancing yourself in rank then you can enjoy this ;little title particulalrly for it price now at 75% off.
There have been some patches, including the ability to remap keys (but not mouse buttons), and some degree of options (resolution and Low-Mid-High quality graphics) but don't expect tank treads left on soil, dynamic shaows, HDR or bloom - this is bare bones WWII tank rushing.
Some have compared this wioth "Order of War", which is not even close in comparison, or "Company of Heroes 1&2" (once again, not even close). I'd say more something from the now defunct Westwood studios' "Dune 2" in 3D with a storyline plucked from Eugen's "Act of War" or the never-to-be-equalled Massive's "World in Conflict".
All in all, I'd give this a solid 7/10 and for the price, particulalrly on special, it's a top time waster on the surreal battlelfields of an alter WWII timeline.

for a low graphic game it runs smoth no lag its a nice little game for 14 99 its alos a nice game to unwind to when you have had a big day of call of dute or battlefield so if you want a nice cheap rts game that is set in a alter time line of ww2 this is for you and if you are looking for somthing a little more actionish play ruse but for 14.99 this is a nice game to play i recommend getting it and looking in to it and see if its a game you will like

Don't get me wrong the game has it's plus sides to it The price was good for a time killer and i am sure if you learned how to play it already you could kick some serious a$$,

but i feel that this Game was "Rushed" by the creators due to the a$$ backwards timeline i mean most everyone knows that germany was deep in to it's summer offensive in southern russian in '42' and i highly doubt that even if hitler would have been shot that russia would have called it quits to a peace treaty, Next the Units totally belong to the wrong countrys every thing italy used the hungarians have, the czeh's have german hetzers and panthers lol, Japaness use russian scout cars....anyways The path that the vehicles and troops take was totally screwed up if they even made it to were they were supposed to of gone without dying they just stood there running around in circles, I did not care for this one so no i wouldnt recommend this one to anyone unless that stuff doesnt borther you then buy it by all means, but this game could have been better provided it was made correctly,
