Mod utility set and campaign editor

High replayability and flexible AI. It chooses the best strategy based on behavior rather than a

fatigue, and morale, which affect their behavior and effectiveness

Detailed recreation of weapons and realistic ballistics: bullets and projectiles follow accurate trajectories

Comprehensive vehicle damage system: engine, suspension, weapons, and aiming mechanisms can all be damaged separately, affecting the combat capabilities of the vehicle

Destructible environment: nearly everything can be blasted and destroyed, from ground terrain to
houses and enemy defenses. All traces of previous battles remain on the battlefield

Dynamic day, night and weather effects, all of which affect combat through terrain traversability,
battlefield visibility, hidden force capabilities, and more, smoke screens, light flares e.t.c.

Gents, I am a veteran of strategic games of ww2, and ww1 and this game is like it was made specialy for me. This game really pushes you into the hands of the commander were each decision you take can lead to victory or total destruction. All the things are so well reconstructed , tanks, firearms that I am really impressed because all this was made just from a little group from Ukraine with very limited funds and english acknowledge.

This is so realistic! I was attepting an ambush when suddendly I was woke up with a barage of mortar and then attacked with tanks were soldiers were hidding behind now that's realistic!!!

To be straight I have 25 years old so I've played some games in my life but this is very very special. It worth any penny , I really hope that all the money from steam goes to them for support and not in the pocket or some publisher.

Se volete un RTS realistico su Steam potete solo procurarvi "Graviteam Tactics Operation Star".
Questo prodotto costa poco e offre tanto sia in termini di longevità si per quanto riguarda il gameplay, realismo e l'atmosferà;
lo capirete subito aprendo il gioco per la prima volta, il tema sonoro del menù vi farà correre i brividi dietro la schiena quando la prima canzone sovietica andra scemando e udirete il giuramento del SS.
dimenticativi la pacchianeria dei titoli piu mainstream in GTOS siete nel 1943 e la guerra si mostrerà a voi con il suo volto piu gelido e cinico;
le squadre i plotoni e compagnie portano i cognomi dei loro ufficiali, i tuoi uomini saranno sempre quelli dal inizio alla fine, perderli vederli morire sul campo di battaglia vi causera angoscia e tristezza ma quando li vedrete trionfare sul nemico vi riempirà d'orgoglio perchè il "gioco" è tutto meno che facile o scontato.
il GTOS si divide 2 parti.
La mappa strategica in "2d" dove dovrete muovere le vostre compagnie in base a quello che dovete fare, difendere o attaccare gli obbiettivi sensibili del operazione, a mio avviso la parte veramente difficile del gioco essendo molto curata e non permette errori di valutazione, il nemico spesso è meglio armato o piu numeroso impostare una corretta strategia al inizio della campagna è l'unica chiava per la vittoria.
Quando inizierete a scontrarvi con il nemico sarà compito vostro schierare le vostre truppe al meglio, come gia accennato perdere unità fare pasticci tattici è assolutamente vietato a rischio cè tutta l'operazione, è qui che arriva il meglio del gioco perchè spesso dovrete temporeggiare magari aspettare rinforzi per interi turni perchè il nemico troppo forte e nel frattempo dovrete arragiarvi col poco che avete a vostra disposizione.
Ogni scontro è brutale ogni centimetro è sangue e gente che brucia, spesso nelle operazioni invernali i colori plumbei e cupi della steppa vi lasceranno a bocca aperta! il dettaglio dei mezzi blindati, la balistica accurata, i valori di blindatura dei carri armati, l'equipaggiamento dei soldati sono tutti fedeli alla realtà e alla storia.
Le "campagne" o meglio le operazioni sono numerose e giocabili da ogni schieramento e sopratutto rigiocabili in tutte le salse e in tutti i modi.
l'unica nota negativa è l'assenza del multy ma la Graviteam presto rilascerà una versione aggiornata del gioco nominata "Mius Front" che migliorerà l'interfaccia grafica e inserira il multigiocatore.
che dire altro?
compratelo e sostenete questo piccolo gruppo che crea grandi giochi.

Graviteam Tactics comes closer than any other game I have yet played to representing the complex situational challenges of the WW2 battlefield. It is a superb game, limited only by a clunky interface and weak marketing, that every serious war gamer should definitely have in his or her stable.

Graviteam has clearly been designed by a team with a deep understanding of military tactics and a passion for realism and historical accuracy. I can't praise the game highly enough and I can only say to those of you who have not yet purchased it, or who gave up on Graviteam because the interface had you baffled, that you are missing out on the opportunity to experience and contribute to the finest WW2 simulation ever made.

A night operation. I'm not a military man but without night vision equipment it would be difficult to see the enemy. However this works both ways and I had the advantage of greater manpower and greater weapons.

So the operation started at 4am, my halftracks rumbled in towards the town from the left and my infantry from the right. A platoon of halftrack engineers I sent to the river crossing next to the town so I could move straight over after the battle. Barely five minutes later, one of my infanry platoons saw the enemy pretty much right on top of them. With my firepower and supporting troops the firefight was over quickly with the entire enemy platoon being eliminated. I was pleased and ordered my troops to converge on the village.

However at the river my engineers began taking fire from a single machine gun from the forest, perfect positioning to engage my forces as they crossed. However the engineers were no rookies and followed my orders to attack the forest and clear it out, the battle was still in my favour. To the right hand side of this engagement the enemy was spotted, I assumed it was another machine gun, set up to give a crossfire killzone and so I quickly ordered my reserve squad within the platoon to sweep in and at least supress it with support from my heavy halftrack. This gun was eliminated with a lucky shot and was immediately destroyed as the dismounted engineers closed. As a looked at the destroyed weapon my eyes widened with fear. It was an Anti-Tank gun, well people, they never travel alone. I ordered a platoon in the villlage to come to the aid of my engineers as there were now more men in the forest than I had thought.

Suddenly as I looked for heavy halftrack to move to engage, it burst into flames. The unlucky crewmembers running out ablaze, in between them I saw a lone Russian solider crawling by the vehicle, he had slipped by and had molotoved my heavy support. Following this my men in the village came across entrenched Russian infantry, bogging them down in a firefight so they were now unable to support my isolated platoon, a retreat could not be ordered as they were already in too deep into the forest and to bring them out was suicide. Two minutes later the village was in my control and the enemy was offering a ceasefire. I had won at the expense of a platoon, a hollow victory.

However I now knew exactly what the enemy had and I knew exactly what to use aginst them. After all that was just the first battle.

This is a legitmately good game, more detailed than any tabletop wargame I've gotten a chance to play, and the manual is now in English. The company is Ukrainian, so here is an ancient joke from the country:

A Ukrainian man is in the forest cleaning his gun. His wife runs out of the house.
"The Russians have gone into space!"
"All of them?"
He continues to clean his gun.

This is one of those games that confuse the hell out of you at first. First time I installed it, I hated it and regreted the decision of buying it. I've read some of the other reviews and gave this babe another chance to prove itself.
I spent couple more evenings trying to figure out what the hell is going on on my screen and then one moment it struck me. This game is absolute blast.
I've played 90% percent of the WW2 games out there. I'm wargames nut, I've played old and new games, I've played good and bad games. I've tried almost every popular and obscure WW2 games, it'd be pointless to list them all. But this one, believe me, will deliver you insane amount of fun if you will spend a bit more time learning how stuff works here. Give this gem a little care, treat it carefully and it will treat you in return. It's new, it's fresh, it's gorgeous, beautiful, stunning.

It will suit all your WW2 nut needs. Amazing, breath-taking, crazily ralistic, grim, brutal tank and infantry battles (with some close air support & artillery options). I've never seen a combat in a WW2 game portrayed so gritty. Yet I played Close Combat, Combat Mission, Men of War, Theatre of War (all of which I adore, love and play them) but none of them could reach this level of aestethics. Men will scream, bleed to death, sand will fly in the air, shells will strike the ground and leave you deaf.
It also has such important aspects as realistic radio & wire lines system. Chain of command. And the best thing? You can set everything and anything in this game, extensive number of options let you edit the game experience to you liking, making it either a true, die-hard war sim or arcade RTS, or even mix of both. If you don't like micro-managing stuff too much it's okay, little men on the battlefield are smart enough to act on their own.

Few words regarding the setting and premise of this game. It's set in Ukraine/Russia circa 1941 to 1943. (Not counting the DLCs, which are also awesome, great, cool but set in modern timeline). One thing I'm going to say that is, Graviteam developers has hit the nail here. The land, terrain, nature, forests, atmosphere, air.. Oh my god, it looks stunning. It absolutely perfectly depicts and resembles real places and lands. I mylelf was born in Russia and as a little kid, I used to walk around a lot, exploring all those forests and big, endless lands of my country and let me tell you a thing, if you're a foreigner, who wants to see true russian nature and not stereotypic stuff, play this game. It's art, pure art.

Do you like war movies? Hell, you can just start a battle, grab a glass of whatever favorite drink you like and watch the hell let and break loose.

One of the best games I've got from steam and absolutely deserved money that I paid in the past year.

No doubt, reccomended. Buy and see it for yourself, don't listen to anybody complaining about interface or other stuff, if you love this game, if you let this game into your mind, you WILL get used to it and it's going to be comfortable using it. Also keep in mind, this is not just RTS, it's tactic.

Last thing about DLCs. Yes, yes, yes, get all of them (except hi-res textures, this I don't really respect, bad move for developers. Game looks fine as it is. And maybe Korea war, depends on your tastes. All others, get them.)

P.S. If you get in this game, after playing few battles you might want to get "Aunthetic Battle Sound mod" and the "Uniforms mod". These two are mandatory for even better experience.

One of the hardest and most frustrating RTS games I have ever played but I keep playing it! I also have all DLC and am looking forward to Mius....

A great simulation and worth every penny if you like World War 2 tactics.

Like probably all the other reviewers out there this game ♥♥♥♥♥♥ me off and seemingly sucked at first. I'd try playing it, get angry and quit for a day or a few hours then i'd try playing/learning it again, rinse and repeat. Finally I looked up a tutorial, got a bit of bearings going, and while I still suck at the game, I am improving and when you understand the mechanics and facets of the game it becomes probably the closest thing to actual WW2 battlefield simulation you can find. Sit your troops in a spot for a while and they will dig trenches, add a Artillery Spotter or Air Support Spotter to a platoon and give them a little more oomph, replace dead troops in a squad or vehicle by getting them to a conscript unit and refill their ammo by sending them to a supply group and replace any busted vehicles and fix any that can be repaired. You can order your troops to do things but theres so many variables that can hinder their progress or cause them to not achieve their directive. Of all the things that make this game hard to get into at first i'd say this is the largest. I STILL have a very hard time getting my tanks, soldiers, vehicles and ESPECIALLY MY GOD DAMN ARTILLERY GUNS to do what I tell them. The mortars seem to work fine, but even when I keep commanders from my Arty unit spread out to relay orders and spot land for fire missions they still often just sit there with their thumbs up their asses. The other problem is that about 60% of the time my troops will not target the targets I pick out for them. When i desperately need a tank to be killed and even when my AT guns/Tanks have clear lines of sight they sometimes just will screw around a lot more than actually do something productive. It causes me to panic and usually makes my troops far less effective in combat than the AI's. I just can't quite figure out whats going wrong, but its really the only complaint I have, however its concerning an important part of the game so It needed mentioned. My only other really big complaint is that there isn't very many units :( All the units are authentic to the time period and are extremely detailed, I just really wanted to see some Panthers and T-34/85s and IS-2s.

Overall a fantastic WW2 RTS/Simulator

-Very detailed environment, map and units
-Authentic everything. Map layout, terrain, units available its all authentic.
-Pretty nice graphics in my opinion. Nothing amazing but very solid.
-Really realistic reactions from soldiers and units to the various situations. A squad that suddenly loses 3 or 4 men from a mortar could easily be panicked.
-A ton of strategic depth
-Play as germans or russians of course
-Custom battles
-Very specific and in depth settings for difficulty and gameplay
-Runs fine and no crashes in the 30 hours i've played
-Completely dynamic map and battlegrounds. Where your troops are on the strategic map is where a battle will take place in the RTS portion. Its very dynamic but i can't think of a good way to describe it.
-Varied time periods in the DLC expansions

-Not very many units to choose from even though they're all authentic
-Only a single strategic map. The map is huge and has quite a few different areas but still theres only 1 and it'd be nice to have at least 1 or 2 more. **EDIT** (I don't know if i missed them or if its because I bought some DLC on the recent sale but theres more maps to choose from than 1. I know for a fact some of them are exclusive to the DLC but I believe I was wrong in assuming the base game only has 1 map, at least for quick battles. Its still only 2 or 3 at the most so its staying on the cons list)
-Relatively large learning curve combined with a ho-hum tutorial.
-Overpriced and stupid Hi-Res textures DLC
-DLC Doesn't seem to add very many WW2 units, if any, and just adds a new battle area/battle map
-Confusing UI and difficulty getting units to always follow orders.

Overall, worth getting especially if you like detailed and realistic WW2 games. This is the pinnacle of WW2 strategy when it comes to realism and authenticity, its better than Men of War in that aspect. Its got some quirks but something about it keeps me coming back even when the AI kicks my ♥♥♥ and I rage quit I still find myself coming back to it.

Absolutely brutal little game. Boundless attention to detail.

If you like pouring hours of your life into first-class wargames, here's one more to suck away your time!

The DLC is kind of a mixed bag (read the descriptions very carefully to see what you're actually getting), but if you get them on sale you can get some good stuff overall.

I wouldn't pay $15 for the russo-chinese border skirmish, for example, but $2? Heck yes. Well worth it.

Grab the Afghan and Angola expansions for a refreshing alternative to WW2.

An Intense RTS - realistic in the best way possible: slow movement, true fog of war, lines of comman (unit will not take orders if they are pinned, out of range, or lack communication - cool feature), etc.

Although there is no MP, the SP is very enjoyable if you are interested in hardcore war strategy... this is no CoH RTS and you will find yourself lost for the 1st several hours, but there are several Youtube videos and the Community Hub has a few really helpful individuals.

Also... the DLCs are pretty sweet and go on sale at least once a month...

A fantastic game with some quality tactical elements to it. I love the fact it's none scripted which makes the replayability great. It is open and almost sandbox in it's approach which frees you up to think about how you tackle each battle. This is right up there with the likes of Combat Missions if not better in some respects.
