About the Game

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.
  • 24 missions during night and daytime, each one has to be prepared carefully and is enriched with random events.

  • 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"

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.

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.

Totally recommended if you like tactics games. The only issue is that the game feels broken.. sometimes it crashes or clues don't appear. Now i'm playing Sentinels, and works great ;)

Totalmente recomendado si te gustan los juegos tipo tactics. Lo único malo es que el juego se siente un poco "roto". A veces se cae, se falla, o las pistas simplemente no aparecen haciendo resetear la misión. Ahora juego Sentinels y los errores están todos corregidos.

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.
