About This Game

Russia during the XIII century was a huge state, much larger than any other European country. Split by internal conflicts, and yet standing strong against numerous outer threats, it was attacked by the infamous Mongol Horde. They came suddenly and pierced through the country like a blazing arrow. The native people fought valiantly, led by a fierce warrior and prince, Prince Alexander Nevsky. Real Warfare: 1242, is a realistic real-time strategy game based on authentic historic events. It invites you to experience the glorious times of princes, knights and vast battles.
The player’s goal is to direct Alexander Nevsky through meticulously recreated historic battlegrounds and achieve the greatest of victories by repelling the attacks of Teutonic and Swedish knights, bringing Lithuania to peace and eliminating every single invader in 1242.

By far the worst strategy game I have ever played. Horrible graphics, long set-up for resolution and other options, no campaign map, bad camera control, and bad combat animation. For a 2010 release this is a poor excuse for a strategy game. If you want a good medieval srtategy with better overall gameplay get Medieval II: Total War. If you really want this game buy it when it is on sale not at full price, it's a waste of money.

I can't play the damned game. I have tried every resolution combination possible with zero luck. Every minute I have clocked has been devoted to just being able to see the game. No luck

Very solid strategy title.
Good unit variety, in depth unit stats and statistic effects from combat, challenging and varied battles bought to you in great graphical detail.
Very surprised with the quality of this game, I am really enjoying it and definitely recommend it for fans of strategy games set in this Era.
