About This Game

On June 28, 1914 in the center of Saraevo Gavrilo Princip shot Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife. Those shots began one of the bloodiest wars in the history of mankind the First World War. For four long years the earth trembled from gun explosions, the air was whistling with bullets and the sky was covered with smoke and ashes. It was the first war with such amount of troops to take part in it and with military operations going on earth, in the skies and seas, even under the water. Weapons of mass destruction were used for the first time.
The Entente WWI Battlefields gives a chance to see it with your own eyes and try to change the history. Choosing one of five available countries of this real time strategy game (France, Germany, Russia, Austro-Hungary, England) players get under command troops with various units starting from infantry and cavalry and ending with battleships. All units were made true from historical point of view by using archive documents and photos. Every nation has its own features, which allow you to use strengths and weaknesses of troops from different states.
Economic and military advisors are present in the game to facilitate control over economic and military development. Advisors assist in upgrades, obtaining resources and producing units. There are more than 1000 structures on the map and 80000 units, 3D sound and full encyclopedia of armament that give a chance to feel like high military commander entrusted with the fate of the nations.

Works just fine on my laptop (windows 7 64 bit, Geforce GT 540M, widescreen). Original version I had worked great on Windows 98, but used to crash terribly on Windows XP and flickered badly, this one works also has some minor flickering in menus, but nothing too serious. Widescreen support doesn't exist, but that's really not that much of a surprise. Multiplayer seems to be down, it was powered by GameSpy if I recall correctly, so it's not a surprise, I guess.
For those who have issues - install directx version suggested in forums, use compability mode and don't forget it's a game from era that is kinda hard to play on modern PCs without tweaking, as developer can't really give you a DOS BOX and just emulate old hardware.
Gameplay wise it's a great strategy surviving the trial of time well, especially when there are not that many WW1 strategies out here at all. It is lacking trench warfare so it's impossible to call it realistic, but otherwise amount of troops on screen and the variety of the game is really impressive.

What a pity! I know that I would enjoy playing this game but sad to say, it does not work in Windows 8.1 64-bit! Steam failed to fix this issue. I tried running in compatibility mode Windows XP, ran it as an administrator but it still would not work!

I should not recommend this game. However, I am recommending this game to players who have an older computer system. Besides, it is not fair not to recommend this game just because it is not suited for newer machines.

I just hope that Steam would fix this issue but I am hoping against hope.

Win 8.1 needs compatability mode. Or I assume so. Loads fine but then just sits at the menu. All I needed to get the cards, but couldnt play it. 49c is what I paid, and maybe the cards are worth 49c and it wont be a bust...

Bad. So bad. Doesn't run on Windows 7 (of course Steam won't tell you that) and will be nothing but a waste of money if you buy it. If you really want it, wait until GOG makes it avalaible (and accessible) on modern PCs. Probably the last game you'll ever want to buy if you have Windows 7 or 8.

It would be fun, if it would work for Windows 7/8 with no problem. Until it is not updated or fixed, better play it on XP or do something about the problem with it, or don't buy it at all.

I bought this game back in June or July and it didn't work on my laptop. The developers are well aware of this problem, but they don't seem to have any inclination to fix the problems that I and many others experienced. So, if you want to burn two dollars for a game that doesn't work, then go right ahead. Otherwise, steer clear of this game until you hear that the developers decided to do something to fix it.

I do not recommend this game to anyone who has a windows operating system newer than windows xp 2000. There is a duplicate screen glitch on the main part of the game that renders the gameplay invisible with repeated screen images stuck. Changing resolution in the game does nothing, there are little to no working fixes for this problem. I bought this game for a little over $1.00 it is a complete waste of money.
