Over dit spel

Silent Storm from leading Russian developer Nival is a true 3D tactical turn-based Role-Playing-Game set against the backdrop of WWII. As the conflict rages on the frontlines, you’ll be leading a small multinational squad behind enemy lines to gather information and wreak havoc on your enemies while trying to thwart a mysterious new rising power whose plans are even more horrific than anything the world has yet witnessed.

Silent Storm is fully rendered in breathtaking 3D – and includes fully destructible environments, realistic weaponry and unlimited tactical possibilities. Turn-based gaming has never looked this good!

The Story

1943: The world seems to face its destruction in all parts; war is raging like never before. You are the commander of a squad, leading the soldiers you’ve selected into special and top secret operations to change the tide of war in your favour – allies or axis, it’s you choice!


The new Add-On "Sentinels" begins with the end of the WWII nightmare. Veterans from all countries, even former enemies, stand together and form the secret investigation and intervention group "Sentinels", for one purpose only: To stop the evil secret society "Thors Hammer" they have faced in war.

Key Features

  • Flexible missions, 2 different campaigns for axis and allies.

  • More than 75 authentic weapons from WWII, including experimental prototypes and rare items
  • More than 40 male and female soldiers to choose from, each one has his / her own character and special abilities
  • Destructible environment opens up tactical options, whether it’s flushing an enemy out of a building via rocket launcher or knocking holes in a wall to make a field-expedient shortcut.
  • Unprecedented realism featuring true 3D, a fully destructible environment, and real projectile physics that take into consideration trajectory, speed, and piercing performance.
  • Includes Silent Storm and Add-On "Sentinels"

How you lose a normal TBS game:
The enemy slowly picks off your squad because they are way too powerful for you to take on.

How you lose Silent Storm:
You take a shot, it misses and goes through the floor hitting an explosive barrel, the resulting chain reaction destroys 75% of the house and kills all of your squad except the guy who took the shot. He is then blown out of a second story window by a guy with a machine gun.

50/10 would become flat like beaver again.

I've only play a little on the steam version of this game but I played the retail version a great bit (100+ hrs). One of my favorite games.
It takes a bit of getting used to and, of course, moves a lot slower than many games today.
A few warnings, in S2 the skill leveling is broken, making some of the classes much less useful than they should be.
S3 fixed the skill issue.
Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be the mods from teh community on steam. Some of those added tremendously.
It takes some tial and error on some missions as your usual playstyle might not be the best fit. And in one mission in S3 (the stealth mission) many have thought that it is impossible to meet all the goals. Without spoiling it I'll just say it isn't.

One of the finest turn-based tactics games ever. The panzerkleins can get a bit over-powered near the end if you save-crawl too hard, so ease back and enjoy yourself.

In my opinion one of the best turn based strategy games with RPG elements ever made. Equal to the original Jagged Alliance and in some points even better! Must buy for Fans of turn based strategy. God i spend so much time of my youth with that game and yet not one sec of this time seems wasted.

Not a bad little game. Its an older game that I remember trying as a kid some where but it still is a solid one. I like how you can choose both sides, axis and allies, and hire troops to work with you on the batlefield. I like the base and the mechanics. Very few bugs and crashes.

The game reminds me of jagged alliance and is a great alternitve however I do wish they would have a shop to where you can buy ammo or requisition it for more of a you earned the money you get to buy what you need feel rather then scavanging and waiting for the armory to populate weapons.

Out side of that, that's all I really have to complain about wiht this game. The random encounters do get reptitious though and while not really a bad thing, it lowers the life of the game just a little bit. Also they should impliment a auto loot after each level or allow you to choose the loot left on the ground but seeing how old this game is, I doubt that will happen unless its modded in by the community.

As its on sale I am very happy to pay 2.50 for the collection. I wouldn't of bought it at 10$ but i would still reccomend it.

Anyway hope you liked the review!

It's a good classic game. I remember playing it a lot in my younger years. It can be difficult, but the turn-based and team management aspect of the game is very good.

THE BEST GAME I'VE PLAYED THAT FEW PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT

Here's the short version or the TL;DR version.
Silent Storm is an amazing Turn Based Strategy RPG that has the most depth of any game i've played in its genre. It has hundreds of authentic and detailed WW2 weapons and equipment, challenging gameplay, attention to detail, fully destructable buildings and cover that realistically break apart and degrade, simple to learn combat system that is the deepest i've seen in this genre, very good RPG systems with Skills and "Perk" style rewards for leveling up with branching trees, 6 different classes each with specific perks and play styles, open ended missions set on levels similar in style to X-COM or Jagged Alliance, excellent inventory system, a choose and build your own squad mechanic with perma death to all squad mates and just an all around charm that lasts through almost the entire experience of both games. I probably forgot to list a few more awesome things, but there are some not so good things too. The Voice acting is rather poor and bland, the game can be fairly difficult to get ACCUSTOMED the story is predictable and dull, the Stealth System never seemed to work very well and toward the end of the game your squad becomes overpowered due to the introduction of some fictional weapons and technology that detracts from the otherwise extremely challenging and detailed WW2 setting.

FULL REVIEW

THE GOOD
This little known game is actually in my top 3 video games of my lifetime so far. I picked it up used (back when used PC games were sold in stores) at a Gamestop by chance. I saw it, by chance, on the shelf and saw the WW2 theme and all the different guns and cool stuff on the box and i decided to give it a chance. Little did I know..... It would become one of my all time favorite video games and my number 2 series that i desperately want to see get a true sequel. Since i bought it, which was back in 2003 or so, i've never met anyone else who had ever played it and when i saw it on Greenlight, I wanted so badly to see it get onto Steam because of how amazing a Turn-based Strategy RPG it is. It never got any real recognition nor any major awards, which was ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ to me (Journalists only give a real ♥♥♥♥ about games from Big names, like always and forever), but its honestly a ♥♥♥♥ing excellent game.

THE COMBAT SYSTEM
Its more or less a hybrid of X-COM and Jagged Alliance. It has Turn-Based combat, which displays percentages on your chances to land a hit or sucessfully throw a grenade accurately. Theres some randomness to the game, sometimes a stray bullet will ricochet and strike an ally, enemy or barrell and cause some damage. Environments are completely destructable. This was the 1st game that had true destructable terrain and cover that mattered in game. It was years ahead in destructible buildings and made on a much smaller budget. The combat, for a turn-based game, is the most in depth of any turn-based strategy games i've played. Its a bit convoluted, but it does a great job of conveying information on any given action. In combat you can literally go anyway you want. You get 6 soldiers, send 1 soldier to a high window to be a sharpshooter, send 2 around the building on a flanking manuever, keep 3 together to flush out enemies and get their position. Once you see them, you can kill them anyway you want. Sniper shot to a specific body part, grenade in the window the nazis are standing at, spray an SMG or heavy machine gun and hope some of the bullets penetrate the wall or blow open a hole to get through to them or you can go balls out and fire a bazooka round at the window, blowing a gaping hole into the building and destroying the floor, wall and any furniture in the area.

THE WEAPONS AND WEAPON SYSTEM
The other awesome part, that i love the most, this game has A METRIC ♥♥♥♥ TON of different weapons. Each with specific stats and all of them are realistic and accurately modeled to their real life counterparts with authentic names. Near the end of the campaign you'll start to fight and comandeer Panzerkleins which do use some fictional weapons, but the rest are historically accurate which always made me giddy. I love WW2 era weapons, and this game has them on lockdown. Not only guns, theres dozens of different grenades, medical items, ammo types, engineering tools and landmines that are all historically accurate too and add some extra depth to your combat abilities and options. They even went as far as to have a "Weapon Familiarity" system, where if your character uses the same weapon for a long time, he becomes more skilled with it. A nice touch.

THE RPG SYSTEM
Next to talk about, the RPG leveling and skill progression. You make your main character at the start of the game. After the 1st mission or 2 you then get to choose from a list of soldiers with specific personalities, backgrounds and classes. Theres 6 classes, Sniper, Medic, Soldier, Scout, Grenadier or Engineer. They all start with the class skills at a higher level and develop them as they use those skills. Kill some enemies, your combat skills improve. Patch up a squad mate, your Medic skills improve. As they improve, you can use better items. Theres something like 12 or 14 skills in total and each level allows you to unlock a choice of 3 or 4 different "Perks" on a level tree. Each class has unique perks, though some of them are shared. By the end of the game your characters could be a legendary marksman, an expert medic who can use any medical item and good with a rifle, or a grenadier whos as accurate with a Grenade as an NFL Quarterback with a football.

THE OTHER COOL STUFF
Character models themselves are extremely detailed in the equipment they carry. If you put some German M-24 Stick Grenades into a characters inventory he will have the grenades hanging from his belt or his chest slings. Knifes, pistols, ammunition all show up and have unique models for what types of ammo they carry. The inventory system itself is similar to Resident Evil 4 or Deus Ex Human Revolution in that it kinda becomes a minigame trying to cram as much equipment in as possible. After you gear up you use a map screen that you travel over to get to a mission. Random encounters can pop up on the map and you can choose to attack random enemies. Theres about 20ish missions, some take a long time to complete, some are short but thats not including random encounters.

THE NOT SO GOOD

ROUGH AROUND THE EDGES
Can't have the good without the bad. The problems i've had with the game, and i've played both games about 6 or 7 times a piece, were the AI, the Stealth System, the Voice Acting, the Panzerkleins and the Story. AI can be braindead, but it they're still punishingly difficult. Voice acting is very low budget. Panzerkleins make you overpowered at the end of the game and the Stealth system never seemed exactly as it should, though it still functions somewhat.

IN SUMMARY
I'm out of characters to use, so in summary, the game is ♥♥♥♥ing amazing and its positives far, far outweigh its negatives. For $10, its damn worth trying and its extremely replayable. I tried to mention all the awesome mechanics and details but I know i missed or had to leave out a few. Get it for yourself, it never got the attention it deserved. It was a WW2 X-Com/JA Hybrid that was built on the perfect engine for this genre. Its in my top 3 games, its up there with Metal Gear Solid 3 for me and thats saying a lot for a budget game that was $40 brand new in 2003. TRY THIS GAME!!!

And if you like it, please spread the word of this gem :)

This game is awesome. If you love squad-based action/strategy games as much as I do, you will undoubtedly agree. The character progression is great, the loot is bountiful and the gameplay is addictive. But what makes my heart skip a beat is the combination of believable physics with highly destructible levels... Enemies in the next room? Empty that machine gun into the door and catch them off guard. Goons in the basement? Detonate a charge and bring the floor/ceiling down on their head. Pesky fiend hiding in the library? Have your skilled sniper fire a high-caliber round through two walls and a bookcase and right between the ribs... Take all that, set it in an increasingly fantastical version of WW2 (mechs, anyone?) and you have a recipe for good times. If the visuals and presentation were better, even a little bit, this would be fighting for a spot in my 'top 10 favorite games of all time' list.

In the house across the street there are several Nazi's bunkered down and need to be eliminated. Do you:

A) Set up heavy machine gun fire and unload into the house until it's a smoldering pile of rubble?
B) Hide in the shadows and plant explosives on key structural supports and bring the building down on the Nazi's?
C) Blow a hole in the wall with your bazooka and rush the Nazi's from behind?
D) Kick in the door and take them from the front like the badass you are?

If you answered E, "why can't I do all of those things?", well you're in luck because with Silent Storm you can! But wait, there's more! he ways to complete your mission are only bounded by your imagination in this Nazi killing simulator.

Do you love X-COM? Are you a fan of turn-based squad combat with a hundred variables? I think you'll like Silent Storm, then.

Be forewarned: SS is a TOUGH game. The AI is pretty smart, the injury system is complex, and sometimes luck just isn't with you. BUT....

But that's also part of the fun! :D Once you get the hang of it, it really is a brilliant, complex, very much replayable game.

Worth every penny. It DEFINITELY lives up to the reputation of Russian video games. Too bad the developers went out of business. Thanks Obama.

Besides decent overall game mechanics, there are also some things that make Silent Storm particularly cool.

I have never seen so well implemented environmental damage in any game, it beats all the modern strategy games and even the original X-COM (1994). It is just beautiful to see how building can partially (or entirelly) collapse depending on how many holes you have shot or blown up to its walls. That is not all however, as also the objects (your cover besides buildings) get damaged and in the end destroyed. It is an awesome feeling when after an intese firefight you look at the map and see how a peaceful English town or a industrial complex got turned into a ruined ghost town. These well modelled mechanics aren't of course just graphical (although they do look great for a game this old), but they play an important role regardless of what tactics you use.

Another thing is the original story, for Silent Storm isn't just another WW2 game that we have seen so many already. It becomes quite clear at the moment when futuristic laser weapons and power armors enter the stage.

Besides those two, there are these other basic features bringing depth to these games, like managing your team members, equipment, gaining experience, varying challenging tactical situations and such. Silent Storm is a well done game with interesting mechanics and other innovations.

If I had to address some of the biggest issues, they would propably be stability and voice acting. I did experience a few crashes, but they really weren't anything I couldn't cope with, thanks to autosaving even if I did forget to save often enough. The voice acting on the other hand is something between hilariusly bad and making you want to cry, but anyone who doesn't know what eg. Finnish should sound like is propably spared from the worst parts. All in all, we are not really talking about any game breaking issues.

Silent Storm is one of my favourite squad-based strategy games among Jagged Alliance 2 and X-COM series. If you are into these kind of games, I really do recommend trying Silent Storm.

Silent Storm is one of those games that you wish they'd remake for modern PC... Take a special squad composed of sniper, soldier, grenadier, engineer, scout, and medic, and take them on different missions with or without allied help, as they use WW2 weapons to take out enemies, capture vital intelligence, and discover a threat to the world that perhaps, trumps the fight agains the mortal enemies... You can play as either the Axis or the Allies (slightly different missions and character choices). This is turn-based tactical combat done right (not that X-COM is wrong, but this game, with destructible environments (try the grenades, explosives, and rockets) and ragdoll physics gives very visceral and satisfying combat (complete with blood spatters on the walls) that somehow XCOM seem to lack.

The main complaint is the game turned a bit too sci-fi later and that's very annoying, and the end fight is also extremely annoying. Still, enjoy the experience.

This is the fifth time I've bought these games since I first found it in an EB Games in 2003. No regrets. Love these games, if you like any kind of turn-based or tactical game get it now. Panzerkleins get a little goofy and to some people it ruins the mood but I like them and think it all goes together really well. You should get this game.

Right now. Stop reading this and throw money at the screen until Silent Storm shows up in your library.

GOTYAY/10 would keep playing till the end of days
