Outstanding quality RTS that any military nut would enjoy. Will also stress out your grey matter, too. If you aren't familiar with the Wargame series, it's a borderline strategic simulator more than an RTS. No base building, no real resources (besides point income from holding sectors), and every unit has morale, health, ammo, and fuel that needs to be tended to carefully with supply lines.

The scale is unlike what most other games in the genre offer. It reminds me almost of the original Supreme Commander in terms of sher volume of units on the field and map size. Every unit you take into battle will never come back alive once destroyed, and you need to make your own decks of units to take into battle, which is almost a kind of game in itself...finding the right unit combos or roles to take. One of the major reasons I recommend this game is because of that.

The army variety and unit selection is also awe inspiring. You can pick from about 1,500 units, all modeled correctly to their real counterpart and act like the real one too. Nations to build from include the US, Canada, France, UK, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Poland, Russia, Czechoslovakia, East Germany, China, and Best Korea (I mean North Korea). There's an army for everyone's taste and they all feel and play unique.

Naval battles need some work and balancing, though, but it also may be just the nature of modern warfare on the ocean. It revolves around who makes the biggest ship blob and has the best radar gattling gun screen to stop incomming cruise missiles.

Overall if you wanna work your brain a little in an RTS and focus entirely on the war and not the bases/economy, this is the thing for you.

This game allows you to stand in the shoes of Dear Leader Kim Jong-il. This is the closest you will get to playing a god since Populous.

I've played the Wargame series since the beginning with European Escalation. It is immensly complex and has a tough learning curve, but is definitely the best stratgy game on the market. I was excited to see there would be a third game, and immediately preordered it and started playing the beta. There is a lot of balacing to be done, but that is not the reason I'm giving this a negative review. The game was advertised as incorporating navies for each country and naval combat mechanics. There are a grand total of 30 ships for 17 nations, yes 30. Blufor and Redfor each get a pool of ships from their nations' navies, and some major navies such as the United State's and the UK's are sorely underrepresesnted. Naval fights are blobs to see who can mass the most ships with CIWS and missiles, and there are no tactics at all. I love the wargame series, but I cannot in good conscience advise you to buy this game. Buy Airland Battle, which is far more balanced and doesnt lie to consumers about its features. Really dissapointed with Eugen, I had very high hopes for this game.

Got into the closed beta for my dedication to the series, and was not disappointed at all. China could use a little buff considering the fact that the game is called Red Dragon after all, and half of China's within time frame units have been questionably ommitted. Naval warfare could use a little tweaking as well, because its implementation was poor at first. However the upcoming naval patch notes look extremely promising.

In terms of improvement over the AirlandBattle, this game has done it all. Land battles are now far more realistic, intense, and tactical thanks to some of the revolutionary changes that Eugen has made in map design, pace, and terrain. Indeed, this game has taken the openness and unlimited tactical/strategic opportunities that were the trademark of W:EE, and combined them with the ferocity that was characteristic of W:AB battles.

But overall, from my many hours of closed beta testing, this is the ultimate culmination of the awesome Wargame series. The enormous scale, realistic terrain, and the unlimited tactical, operational and even strategic options that this glorious game provides has never ceased to amaze me. Indeed, this is any amateur wargamer's/armchair general's (like myself) wet dream, and I would fully recommend this to anyone seeking an immersive, immense, and ultimately fulfilling historical/military experience.


I wish I had the Mad Money guy's bullish button to press right now...
