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.

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

  • Includes Silent Storm and Add-On "Sentinels"

Silent Storm – это замечательная пошаговая тактическая игра в сеттинге Второй Мировой войны. Замечательной ее делает не только внимание к мелочам, но и безупречная стилистика, богатство тактических возможностей. И говоря богатство – я подразумеваю именно его. Каждая игровая сессия в SS пестрит различными событиями. Каждое из которых происходит само по себе. Это не скрипты. Ситуации рождает богатство функционала игры. Одних типов выстрелов в наличии - шесть. И это всего лишь один фрагмент истории которая начинается после спущенного курка.
Очередь может перебить балку и обрушить дозорную вышку, пуля может срикошетить и выбить соседнее стекло, свинцовый шквал разрушает буквально все на своем пути. Пулей даже можно случайно прикрыть или наоборот открыть створы ворот. В этом мире все живет, и в этом мире все может умереть. Неосторожный выстрел в бак, и машина взрывается. Рикошет попадет в генератор в подвале, будьте уверены, что взрыв может затронуть не только сам подвал, но и верхний этаж, и в открывшуюся дыру можно будет спрыгнуть или наоборот залезть. Бой с применением десятков типов гранат и станковых пулеметов превращает любую карту в настоящую мясорубку. Есть желания – можно сыграть и более тихо. И каждый бой будет уникален.

Что мы видим в играх сегодняшних дней? Даст бог существуют разрушаемые объекты. Все остальное – статический и безмолвный игр. Заглянув в строчки рецензий давно ушедших дней вы прочтете о том, что игру приняли не очень тепло. Одной из причин были «футуристические элементы разрушающие аутентичность сеттинга». Как мало было нужно, чтобы попасть в немилость журналистов. Кого теперь, в 2014 году волнует разрушение аутентичности?

Члены вашего отряда набираются на манер незабвенной серии Jagged Alliance и имеют свои специализации. Во время сражений ваши подопечные набирают опыт, растут и прокачивают свои ветки умений, которые здорово напоминают перки, оформленные на манер «древа развития».

Парк оружия в игре представлен более чем богато, даже на старте игры, сразу после первых боев. Это и пистолеты всех мастей и калибров, и пистолеты-пулеметы, и автоматы, и винтовки, и тяжелые пулеметы. Как я уже упоминал гранаты всех цветов и мастей, тротил, динамитные шашки, бомбы ловушки. Иными словами разработчики позаботились о том, чтобы у вас был выбор. Как и в Jagged Alliance у героев имеется такой параметр как привыкание к определенному оружию. Постепенно «срастаешься» с любимой винтовкой, и ее не хочется менять даже если есть что-то посвежее. Своя рубашка как говорят, к телу ближе.

Схватки оформлены на небольших картах, это ограничение было вызвано быстродействием машин 2003-ъего года, и тотальной разрушаемостью, т.к. всю информацию о том как изменилась та или иная постройка нужно хранить. Тела убитых, ровно как и предметы никуда магически не исчезают, а оружие находится ровно там же где и упало. И кстати, как и тела – оно тоже обладает физикой. Аутентичность в подходе к разработке игры дошла до того, что предметы, которые вы находите в ящиках или сейфах, не просто набор иконок, которые кочуют из одного инвентаря в другой. Нет. Это реальные объекты, которые лежат на дне ящика.

И анимация, и графика, и физика, и прочее визуальное оформление настолько хороши, что игра не устарела до сих пор. А после выхода тактики под названием Wasteland 2 сорвавшей банк оваций со стороны всего игрового мира я нахожусь в полной растерянности. Насколько нужно деградировать, чтобы картонную игру, без намека на какую-либо стилистику, с кастрированной тактикой, статичным миром, до полусмерти замордованную собственными багами возвести на пьедестал «достойного продолжателя легенд»? Неужели индустрия настолько обеднела и выродилась, что люди уже не помнят своих, не таких уж и древних, истоков? Настоящих легенд?

И это не стон ретрограда. Не скрип олдфага-саркофага. Это более или менее объективный взгляд хотя бы на богатство прошлых и скудность современных игровых механик. Надо как-то развиваться, надо как-то сопротивляться нашествию серой убогости. Надо как-то повышать и всячески развивать чувство собственного вкуса. Иначе, что будет завтра? Игры типа тетриса, где в стакан нужно будет собирать исключительно квадратные блоки, станут венцом тактических стратегий? Где квадрат в одном случае будет танком, а в другом самолетом, а в третьем коровой, которая дает квадратное молоко?

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

How you lose Silent Storm:
You take it 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

This game is an absolute classic! It has deep turn-based strategy and it still holds up today. If you're a fan of X-Com type of games, I can't recommend this enough! Get it!

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.

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.

This game is awesome! A steal when it's on sale. It plays like the old Jagged Alliance 2, except the buildings in this game are destructible, which adds a new dimension to a fire fight when acetylene tanks are in the background.
The voice acting has it's moments in the game, it's intentionally hammed up for laughs. This alone makes it a worthwhile purchase even at regular price.
Just let yourself in with grenades and roll out the red carpet with an MG, anything goes! And just in case it doesn't remember to save often. I see myself having many late nights trying to finish a mission with this game.

My favourite tactics game of all time!

Awesome graphic design (I love those HUD icons, they are no worse than in Warcraft 3!).
Awesome gameplay (you can destroy literally everything, shoot through walls, make holes in them, explode buildings; also on higher difficulty levels you must carry your fainted companions out of the battlefield).
Awesome replayability (this game has random set of story missions every time you play, and mission order is nonlinear; also there are random encounters and special encounters).
Awesome atmosphere (story and musics are quite nice, graphics are on the level of modern indie games, except no shaders).
Awesome everything else (really, not much cons for this game, a couple of glitches on modern systems and sometimes cheating AI).

Oh, and Sentinels add-on makes the game even better and has a new storyline. It also has widescreen, money system and good old companions from the original.

10/10

P.S. I run this game on Win8 and no major glitches except for the graphical ones, which are not so annoying.

This, in my opinion, is one of the best turn-based squad tactics ever made, along with X-Com and Jagged Alliance; and probably one of the best PC games made in Russia. I remember playing it back in the day and it was super addictive. This game has great tactical battles with variety of different strategies that manage to be dynamic despite old-school action-points based system. It also has simple, but effective RPG system of skill progression with skill trees for each type of character. Those may seem confusing at first, but game has a high replayability value and each type of character definitely worth of try. But the best part about Silent Storm is probably its destructable environments withint the game. There's no sweeter sound than the sound of heavy machine gun fire demolishing the walls and ripping apart the house. With everything and everyone inside. Total nerdgasm.
Now, we already have SS and SS:Sentinels, can we also have Hammer & Sickle? Steam? Please?

So basically - Jagged Alliance made sweet sweet love to Man of Prey. And whilst X-COM assisted in the birth; the result was Silent Storm. Now, that may not make much sense based upon the actual release dates of the above titles, but Silent Storm is a fantastic squad based RTS/RPG regardless.

in my oppinion simply the best game so far in its genre, the tactical round based combat is just done perfect with lots of options. the equipment collection is just as motivating as diablo, but not every weapon is automatically better and the game has a lot to do.. as in pretty much endless play with random elements.

The strategy set the realities of World War II. The player becomes the commander of the elite soldiers performing a very dangerous task deep into enemy territory. In each mission you can directly command the five soldiers any selected from forty subordinate our people (six professions: scout, sniper, sub-machine gunner, grenadier, physician, engineer). Each has its own history, nationality, (30 nationalities) and individual characteristics (over 50 skills that we can develop along the course of the game).

In our hands and was given more than 75 authentic weapons from World War II, from knives, bayonets and hand grenades, and ending with a sniper rifle and experimental weapons. Await to comply two large campaigns, one on the side of the Allies, the other on the side of the Axis, giving a total of 24 non-linear missions for various purposes, including release prisoners and the destruction of important enemy installations. The game takes place in a turn-based system, similar to that used for example.'s Famous X-COM, and observe the action in full 3D (changeable weather conditions, day and night, a number of visual effects).

Silent Storm is an older game, in the same kind of genre as X-com or Jagged Alliance. Compared to those games it is MUCH more forgiving, as long as you rescue downed soldiers they don't die. It's set in WW2, with a almost wolfenstien twist, there's another faction with (era appropriate) power armor suits.

There's more of a focus of leveling up your characters and having them specialize with certain weapons, there is a pretty good list of weapons to use too. The buildings and such are destructable, it's a bit like x-com apocalpyse where enough fire and explosions will level pretty much anything.

The graphics aren't anything home to write about and the voice acting is absolutely terrible, picking a male british guy as your character is going to elict laughs out of anyone at how corny it is.

Another minor gripe I have with the game is that it seems there's no weight limit or penalties, meaning you should always have a packed inventory.

Overall, if you like the genre you should enjoy this game, while the new x-com defintely beats it in presentation I found the gameplay to be superior.
