About This Game

Based on the award winning game engine by the same name, Advanced Tactics: Gold offers a unique and infinitely replayable wargaming experience for any strategy fan. Building off of the enormous success of Advanced Tactics: World War II, the Gold edition gives players a more powerful game editor, much improved random game engine, many new features and abilities, and more. Advanced Tactics: Gold also comes with an updated manual and ever-changing and expanding wiki, a freshly revamped scenario bank, new graphics throughout the game, more troop types, as well as some new scenarios. VR Designs has also been hard at working listening to player feedback, so Advanced Tactics: Gold also comes with many incremental changes and improvements based on community feedback!

But perhaps the most exciting feature in Advanced Tactics: Gold is the near limitless potential for replayability. The strong mod community will be able to create engaging, rich scenarios with the vastly improved editor, and players looking to hop straight into the action can enjoy a much improved random game experience that comes with many new rules, actions, and gameplay mechanics.

One of the best turn-based wargames of all time. Notable for having production, supply flow, and tech research - features that are more typical of RTS and Civ games. The core game engine is extremely powerful and flexible, such that there are mods for Roman Empire games, fantasy games, space opera games, and more.

It might look rather simple, But its not.

It has a quite deep tactical gameplay. Supplies for units. ore for production of various units you can use in divisions. oil for motorized units, carefull tho once you run out of oil your war machine stops to a grinding halt, tanks and motorized units can barely move, any aircraft is grounded.

It has a small learning curve but once you know what every button does its fairly easy. It also has a random map generator with quite alot of settings. you can even have a civilization alike game. you start with 1 city and HQ with a few units

Cities and factories produce units, wich you can mix and match in self cuztomized divisions. Different terrains with different stats. And thats not even all of it, It would be too many to name.

However all this fun stuff comes pared with a rather funky outdated UI, Alot of time consuming gameplay and tons of micromanagement.

Overall a 8/10 - would run out of oil during an operation again.

Hi folks,

honestly said, in this game I'm not the sharpest blade in the weapons racks. But for me playing this game is a pleasure.

Till now i only play against the AI which acts, in my opinion, very smart. Up to now there was never a situation where i thought the AI was cheating. The game is well balanced. In random games and you have up from the start of the first round the full control of your hole army (structure and troops). Every decision you make has a direct impact of the future turns. With decisions I mean your army build up, command structure, the production you chose and last but not least the type of troops you research in the science tab. I've no experience with the multiplayer (pbem), so i can't tell anything about it (but I expect that is would be a much greater fun than playing against the AI).

tl;dr: this game catches my attention cause of...

* smart and fair AI
* highly worth to play again (cause of the very good random game generator)
* non historical background (but if you like there are also scenarios available)
* full range of troop types (different types of infantry, over tanks and aircrafts to ships and submarines)
* with every new map the possibility to try a different strategy

So far my impressions with around 74 hours of gameplay.

p.s. if you have questions or want to discuss my recommendation of this game don't hesitate to contact me.

This is a great hex based strategy game. The AI is a good opponent too! I wish my friend would buy this so we could play against each other.

Its fun to play matches against multiple AI enemies.

The customizable random world map makes for lots of replayability too.

Lots of different units (just simple tokens on the map) that are upgradable to more powerful versions (fighter III, etc)
