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.

Game style :
* RTS in World War 2 with historical battle situations.
* Strategy : positioning of units (on a hill, in a building, flanking tactics, evading field of vision) mixed with the classic 'rock paper scissor mechanism'.
* no base building.
* no fog of war.
* in essence only infantry and armory (tanks, artillary) so no air or naval battles.
* off line air support sometimes available (dropping commandos, air attack, artillery attack)
* no healing and repairing units, dead is dead, lost is lost.
* no indepth tactics needed or reading a thick manual but RTS experience is necessary.
* limited units due to limited resources and unit cap.
* capture control points to acquire resources and by doing so to order extra ( and new) units.
* tutorial available.

Difficulty : played on 'standard' level which is though enough.

Story line (x/10) :
Each mission comes with a movie composed of retro footage mixed with 3D-presentations.
Followed by in-game footage and explanation of mission objectives.
Short and flashy with style.

Mission objectives :
Each map comes of course with several primary and secondary objectives.
Everything is well explained during combat by your commander.
New objectives will become available on the map when you succeed in the current one.
Big bummer, every enemy attack and movement is scripted when you move from one
objective to another.
Defend hill -> Attack town -> Help you ally in defending another hill -> new wave of attack etc.

Campaigns : Two, Americain (vs Germany) and Germain (vs Russia) campaign.
Americain campaign gets interesting starting halfway mission 6 (Road to Paris) up to the end, mission 9 (Breaking the wall), as you will have more freedom to take on the battles.
Germain campaing kicks really of at mission 3 (Sandomierz bridgehead) till
the end mission 9 (Kesselschlacht)

Medals and victory points :
For completion missions, you will get a medal award and overall rating pending
on following parameters : completing the missions (main + side) and a positive kill versus dead ratio.
Based on this achievements, you will earn victory points which can be used to improve your units for further missions (more armor, more accuracy, more damage, faster moving)

Interface : Very intuitive and easy to use, very well done.
You can pause the game to issue orders which i like in an RTS.

Graphics (6/10) :
Good overview when zoomed out (detailed)
Zooming in shows the age of time, simply out-dated graphs and modelling.

AI (5/10) :
The enemy attacks and movement is scripted so AI was a second priority of
the game developers. (assumption)

Sound (5/10) : the same fanfare (trumpets - horns) sound over and over again.
Units produces the standard text lines.
After mission 5, i turned music off preventing an ear trauma.

Bugs : Yes, sometimes not possible anymore to control units (point and click) including no
menu access, solution ctrl+alt+del and forcing to close the game.
Game can also be more direct when an instant crash to desktop happens :=P
And last but not least, file loading errors.

To play or not to play :
It has it's flaws like the scripted events. Some bugs. Stupic music. Nearly half of the missions are linear (no room for being creative). For the occasional RTS-player or the new bie might be difficult as manual does not tell you which unit is effective against ?
I give it still a thumb up if you know what to expect.
