I sunk HOURS into this game when I was younger. Does it hold up to my memories? Hell yes. Even now, when I'm spoiled by games like CoH2, This games is still a good RTS. Graphics are good, (Except for the cutscenes...but those are so hilariously animated that it's hard to hate them.) Controls aren't awkward, and there isn't a butt ton to memorize. There are pop culture refences all over the game (Like, one time as the soviets, I captured the enemy base, and a soldier said: "Run Nazis! All your base are belong to us!). There are cheats for the game that give your units invincibilty, insta-kill, infinite resources, and so on. (I use invincibility, I know it's cheap, but it's so much fun to send my Ranger officer headlong at a bunch of tanks, and capture one with no problem). The only problem I have is that there's no "Select All Units" button. Which, when dealing with larger armies, can be a bit of a problem. I highly reccommend this game. Especially considering it's price. Definitely more casual than CoH2, but just as difficult.

While focused on the combat more then anything else, RFB Gold is a fun game.

Like i said, it focus is on the combat. You don't have workers gather resourses, no buildings to be made, straight to the point; war. And, thankfully, its fun.
There are 3 armies to choose from, Germany, US, and Russia, but aside from one or two unique unites, they all play the same.
I've only started the main story, but have put some time into deathmatches. You can play with or against bots (yay!) and the AI is pretty good..
While I can't give this RTS a 5/5 (no resourses, or building anything), it's worth a try, for sure.

This game is much better than I expected, especially for the price. I've played many games priced higher than this that don't offer the same amount of enjoyment. I am especially fond of how each country speaks their own language, unless addressing something vital.

Five WWII campaigns from a great (although now defunct) developer called Stormregion for $1.24: somewhat dated by today's standards but nonetheless fun to play.

I first played the vanilla game several years ago, with the Western Allies, Russian, German and French campaigns. It was quite possibly the greatest RTS game I have ever played, using a great system involving infantry, vehicles and crews, artillery, officers, airborne troops, all sorts of good stuff.
With the Gold version, the "Rush for the Bomb" mode is added, detailing a fictional front of WWII with the rush to build the atomic bomb.
Started as a great game, now became better.

Очень не плохая стратегия на тему Второй Мировой Войны,но сделанная явно на любителей,потому,на большее,чем посредственный проходнячок игра не тянет.Тем не менее,поиграть в игру стоит.

For me this game was always an example of how such games should be made, there are several interesting campaigns with great storyline, unique missions and units, many great funny cutscenes, lots of so-called 'easter eggs' in most (if not all) missions, that made me replay them again and again, as it felt like i'd necessarily miss something out.

게임할 때 자원만 많이 준다면 괜찮은 게임이다. 오래전에 나온 것 치고는 그래픽도 좋고 유닛들도 꽤 많이 나와서 좋았다. 다만 전차같은 경우 많이 몰려있을 때 융통성있게 움직이지 않아서 좀 곶통이다. 어쨋든 추천
