About Order of War

In the summer of 1944, the Second World War entered its end-game when the Allies launched two major operations that would drive back German forces on both the Western and Eastern Fronts at once.
Their names were Overlord and Bagration. Overlord famously commenced with the D-Day landings in Normandy and ended in the Liberation of Paris, while Bagration - a far less well-known but far larger Russian operation - crushed the invading German forces in the east, leading to their complete withdrawal from Soviet territory. Had either operation been unsuccessful, history could have been very different.
In the ultimate test of military strategy, Order of War will challenge you not only to lead America's finest to victory in the west, but also place you in command of the German forces charged with repelling the Red Army's seemingly unstoppable offensive in the east. Even the keenest military minds will find that it's one thing to make history, but quite another to change it.

...Do you have what it takes to command?

Key features:

  • Experience WWII warfare on an epic, cinematic stage; that truly captures the intensity and scale of the battlefield.
  • Take Command of an entire armoured force consisting of up to 1000 soldiers, tank divisions, armoured vehicles, heavy artillery and air force.
  • Players can choose between two different campaign modes offering completely different storyline, missions, objectives and environments.
  • Experience the unique dynamic camera that allows players to command troops over huge geographical scale whilst maintaining movie-like vistas and detail.

Allowed me to send in endless waves of soldiers as cannon fodder.
Since there are no WW1 games this one is an good alternative with the right mod.
9/10 love this strategy game and the AI is not the dumbest.

Without Online Multiplayer, it's such a small game. The 6 skirmish maps you have are dull after a while and the AI is easy to beat on Hard mode, with high/low resources in either case.
It could be fun as eye candy if you could LAN, but I could not find a way to use the same copy of the game with Library sharing or Ctrl-Alt-Del'ing. (Why worry about piracy issues if you've killed your game from the Multiplayer genre anyhow?)

Overall, nope. You could get a small thrill when you first get the game but you'll just be bitter later on down the track.

You would have to be strongly intoxicated to enjoy this awful game, if you even can call this a game. You would think the Developers of this title would have atleast a basic knowledge of what makes a good rts however it seems they have no idea what they were making. And if singleplayer was not bad enough, oh wait the game features no multiplayer. Sadly I was suckered into buying this game when the price was much higher. It was torture enough during the first ten minutes of the game, I cant believe I pushed my self to play two hours of this terriable title. Of all the games I have bought on steam this has to be one of the worst...id rather go play snooker... anyone who says otherwise is either very dishonest or completley utterly mentally ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥.

Its a very fun at times, although, if you wanted to play with friends, you sadly cannot do that anymore... the servers were shut down. I think it would've been better to try and migrate the servers. I give this an 8/10, game crashed during certain story mode moments, like when planes crashed, or certain intense moments...
