Blitzkrieg II comes with tremendous focus on new strategic opportunities, global war and gritty realism of WWII battles. On the side of Soviet Armed Forces, US Army or German Wehrmacht you plan entire operations and lead your men into fierce action, choose reinforcements and use a wide range of new weapons in three full-blown campaigns that span the globe. New graphics engine and significant step over the original game get you in control of the most dramatic and bloody conflict of the past century.

Real Strategy


Decide what missions to fight, accumulate and call in any type of reinforcements, capture train stations or airfields to receive more troops by railroad or get air supremacy during the entire operation. Accomplish tactical objectives and missions to support your war efforts at strategic level and ensure your combat efficiency in the decisive battles.

Promote and assign commanders to combat units to expand your tactical advantage with over 50 unique skills and real-life abilities. Order engineers to plant TNT charge and blast passing enemy units, use linked grenades for extra damage, suppress infantry with flak fire and master other combat techniques introduced in Blitzkrieg II.

Real War


Philippines, Iwo Jima, Tobruk, Moscow, Stalingrad, Ardennes - fight on every major front of WWII from the heart of Europe and blistering sands of Africa to the deadly jungle isles of the Pacific. Your mission goals will vary from counter attacks and air warfare to covert operations and seashore landing onslaught.

Get access to hundreds of authentic weapons from “Satan” flame tank to Tiger II and T-35 monsters, from “Zero” fighters to V-2 ballistic missiles and 305-mm railroad guns. Make use of special forces, sappers, assault engineers and even guard dogs!

I really enjoy this game, its from my childhood, and I still enjoy it to this day.
The graphics might not be the best anymore for this era, but the gameplay is still nice.
Although infantry sucks balls in Bk II, its still a great WWII RTS game.

And you can still play multiplayer on the Nival servers, just launch the other version of the game, Liberation or The Fall of the Reich.

An oldie but a goodie. This game brings back fond memories from my childhood with the bonus of still providing a challenge. Its a straightforward RTS game without base building. The game initially seems simple to win (mass tanks and destroy everything with them) but as you play it more you learn that all your units have a place and can be very fun to play with. Hidden missions on a good number of maps also give experienced players something extra to look for.

This game made me think about many things, but the one that I must put here is how a RTS game could have such amount of ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t as in this one? how is a mortar able to launch it grenades at the velocity of a dammed grenade launcher from nowadays? and how is a bloody armored car from 1944 able to reach around 80KM/hr in less than 1 second and stop it as well in less than 1 sec?
How is a bloody MG nest able to get destroyed in questions of seconds by an advancing enemy squad?
and the biggest doubt of all... HOW IS A TRUCK ABLE TO BLOW UP IN 2 SECONDS AFTER BEING FIRED BY A 5 MEN SQUAD WITH BLOODY MP40s?!!!!

Only on your side there is a strategy, but by the part of the AI, there is no strategy or whatsoever... The AI looks pretty much like a 12 year old kid that just select all the units on the screen and order a full out assault.
Plus, you can't do anything to stop it, since your MG nests, even though they are entrenched, are going to be cleared within a *blink* of yours... and AT guns? well, they do have some AP power, but absolutelly no defence... A german rifleman can just aim at it and with his magical 900/rounds per minute Ka98, is going to rekt him, only if the AT gun is paying attention somewhere, because if not, its probable that the poor rifleman is going to face his worst nightmare... A Machinegun enplacement with the ability to fire AP shells.

+Plus, the infantary requires some hacking-like skills to be fully used, I have lost the count of how many times I have seen entire companies being whiped out in questions of seconds by OPS AT guns and mortars... And I bet those entrenched british make those poor germans think they are back at Verdun...
Also, don't EVER trust the AI... It is more dumb than... well... the level is so low that I can't even explain it. I GOES OUT OF THE RANKING.
I can't think of why the developers would made a tank AI so dumb that it just TURNS ITS BACK ARMOR to the enemy when ordered to go back... Also, it doesn't really looks like the AI has more functions than:
1. Avoiding hitting hard objects (houses per example)
2. Shooting with a shameful precision sometimes and a sniper some other times.
3. Fire and reload faster than Flash on cocaine (giving a new meaning to "BlitzKrieg")...

If you are looking for realistic gameplay, this is a REALLY fast paced game, so you do better get away from this page right now and never come back.
In the other hand, if you are looking for CHALLENGING gameplay, this is the game for you!
the game where a Panzer III would get rekt by a british AA gun, and where Light AT guns shot like machineguns...


P.S: After writting this review I guess I just discovered the meaning behind the name "Blitzkrieg".

My first strategy has played it more than 6000 hours without steam(8years), 450 with steam,The graphics in the game is not important.What is important is the gameplay itself,but the graphics are not the worst, the eye does not hurt,the game is not easy to learn,It takes time to play well,I advise companies to begin with, then go into multiplayer,no problems in the game,small bag.What is interesting for all of the game it is still not tired,a game for the ages, better than many of the new strategy,certainly not in terms of graphics, in terms of gameplay,The price is very cheap for 3 parts: the main and two additional.
graphic 7/10(not bad)
gameplay10/10
Overall rating 9.9/10
Would to 10/10, if not invisible problem

Only 40 minutes in and I love it! It's is just what I'm after for a WW2 RTS. I cannot stress how good this game is. Well worth the £3.99 price tag.

This is the first generation of Men of War and Company of Heroes 2. I played this many years ago along with the first one, Now the first game has terrible graphics but is still playable. Blitzkrieg 2 is a lot better but you still have to manouvre around the age barrier of the game. Realistic to an extent as bombers actually destroy tanks and not just knock a little bit off the huge red health bar games tend to have these days. You can build trenches, road blocks and other types of obstacles which make the whole concept a lot more appealing. I have the first on disc (still) and just downloading this second anthology now, deffinitely worth the time and specially worth the low cost of money for the amount of gameplay you will get out of this!

8/10

(If you played the older generation of Command and Conquer, then you will absolutely love this!)

I loved this game when I was younger, and was destroyed when I found out it didn't work on Windows 7. Whether you get this or the first game, it'll be well worth the the $5 fee. It has a great campaign with famous battles from World War II, with the ability to play as America, Russia, or Germany. Beyond that it has a great custom map editor that allows you to create entire campaigns. The possibilities are endless with the map editor and a healthy amount of mods for anyone who wants anything extra. To add to this deal, the game includes both expansion packs for free.

Amazing Game! Have been playing it for years and still holds its replay value with great multiplayer and campaigns. I recommend this game to any WW2 lovers or just strait up strategy gamers.

Why get this game?:

- posseses almost every vehicle and artillery system used in World war 2, ranging from the French Renault R35 to the Russian IS-3 main battle tank
- Great multiplayer with a small but growing community of players
- Requires tactics over massed tank rushes(unless you want to be slaughtered by your friends entrenched infantry and anti-tank guns!)
- Deployable air support such as B-29's, Me-262's, and the famous P-51 Mustang
- An amazing single player campaign throughout the game and its added expansions featuring US/UK, German, and Soviet campaigns with the Russian one featuring one of the most epic last stands in history known as the Battle of Berlin

This game was my entire child hood, I used to play this game for hours a day. Campaign was really good in my opinion, but multiplayer is where it really shines.

Sadly, there is a problem with the screen tearing and I do not know how to fix it. It really bugs me and I wish I could find a solution. Hopefully they add an update and fix it. It seems to happen with people who use 1920 x 1080 resloutions.

Another downfall to this is that multiplayer is disabled, which is a really huge shame. I hope this gets enough support and they will add steam servers to Blitzkrieg II

Overall, if you like any RTS, (especially company of heroes) then i definatly recommended this game.

This game was my childhood. I remember playing this game for hours on end, even had a 6 hour multiplayer game once (not proud, but sorta proud). The campaign is amazing, very indepth and offers tremendous amounts of player skill to vary the outcomes of any scenario. You can play a total of three campaigns, one for USA, Germany, and Soviet Russia. Although these campaigns are great, and could easily suck up a few days of your time, the real fun is in the multiplayer area. The game is a totally different animal and is immensely fun as a multiplayer, unfortunately the multiplayer function is disabled :'( I'm sure this is one game that steam would not regret opening some multiplayer servers for. Back in the day, this game always had around 50 people playing it at any time, which is much higher than most RTS games can say for their landing lobby. If you're into WW2 tactics and creating your own strategies in real-time combat, this is the game for you.

Classic game in all respects!! Modern games should really pay attention and take some lessons....
Played the game when it was released back in the days and thought that it will look really outdated in 2014. I couldn't be more wrong than that!! It reminded me what I love about strategy games:

- Massive Armies
- Tactics and Strategy
- Variety of units, tanks, planes, etc
- 'Who gives a 'bullet' about high end graphics in strategy'?
- Progression and reasonable paying time.
- Fun, fun, fun

This game looks so old, by today's standards. However, it plays very well. Very fun and addicting. I recommend it fully.


I'm only abouut 2 hours into it but Its very challenging. Definately more a realistic game instead of a arcade style RTS.

Soldiers are quickly torn appart from tanks. Infantry left in the open quickly slaughtered.

I'm just discovering this game now and Would have been great to play this on multiplayer. All those years ago.
