Theatre of War 2: Kursk 1943, the historically accurate and detailed real-time tactical war game, welcomes military history fans to the battle which gave the Red Army the strategic initiative for the rest of the war.
The new project in the award-winning Theatre of War series depicts the initial (defensive) stage of the Kursk battle.

Assuming the role of either the Russian or German battle group commander, acting under direct orders of division commanders Ivan Chistyakov or Valter Hoernlein,
players will control their troops in historical scenarios on precisely reconstructed authentic battlefields.

Five days of July

In Theatre of War 2: Kursk 1943, you control the units of the battle group belonging to German division Grossdeutschland or the forces of the Soviet 67th Guards Rifle Division and 3rd Mechanized Corps,
which participated in the defensive stage of the Kursk battle at the south face of the Kursk salient. There are two campaigns – German and Soviet:
  • Fiery Salient (forces of the Soviet 6th Guards and 1st Tank Army, July 5-10, 1943)
  • Operation Citadel (German division Grossdeutschland Kampfgruppe, July 5-10, 1943)
Each campaign consists of up to 9 engagements and puts you in charge of a typical military unit from that period. Each soldier and officer is a unique personality with characteristics and skills which can change during the campaign.
Careful planning and troops selection is recommended before each engagement.

Key features:
  • Take control over the mighty Soviet or German battle group in one of the battles which changed the history of the world
  • Simulation-level visibility, ballistics and armor penetration systems. All vital vehicle systems and crew members are individually modeled
  • Two historical campaigns (up to 18 missions total) and an unlimited number of customizable engagements waiting to be created with a few mouse clicks using the built-in Mission Generator
  • Sophisticated AI for both enemy and your own units
  • Over 60 Soviet, German and lend-leased US and British player-controllable units (not counting various infantry squads)
  • Unsurpassed management of battle personnel. You can choose, assign, promote and award up to several thousand people with various characteristics. You can even rename units for easier recognition in the heat of battle
  • Team multiplayer for up to 8 players (control of key points or assault/defense) with reinforcements, artillery barrages and air strikes
  • Tools for creating your own missions and maps (built-in Mission Generator, wizard-like Simple Editor, full-blown Mission Editor and 3D Map Editor).

Not what i had expected. Clunky controls, unresponsive units. Game is quite tedious.

I can usually get past that, i don't mind slow and hard-to-learn strategy games. But it's just not responsive nor is it any fun, and frankly, i find the tactical value to be lackluster due to unavailible options for unit behaviour. (infantry only hit the dirt when under fire instead of ordering them to do so before they are under fire, for example) your units also act clunky and units are unresponsive, especially for tank and gun crews, which is my biggest issue. I am well aware that the game creates a somewhat realistic factor by having a delay in orders and units acting sort-of by themselves, but often at times it seems like my soldiers have a death-wish by simply deciding to hit the dirt right in the middle of a killzone, or tanks refusing to turn the right direction when under fire.

There are also a number of more 'hidden' factors in the game, such as morale, but i couldn't find it. Armor and penetration values for guns and ammo also only displayed the moment when i really started searching for them. While ammo penetration and armor resilience are displayed, they are only done so pre-game when assembling forces and in the encyclopedia. If you happen to stumble upon a tank in-game, you're just gonna have to guess or know these statistics beforehand - which is just silly.

The tutorial is practically nonexistant and explains nothing. While that's usually not too much of an issue for me (i dont mind googling, watching YT vids to get my information) it is still frustrating nonetheless.

I do applaud the creators for trying, the genre is kind of a niche and i really enjoy the setting and the armchair-general genre as a whole, but Theatre of War is just one big dissapointment. I recommend avoiding it.

I recommend picking up Men of War: Assault Squad instead. Not only is it more accessible, it's also got far more depth than Theatre of War, along with excellent sound effects, better graphics, immersion, and an active modding/multiplayer community. And most importantly: Unit behaviour and responsiveness works - unlike Theatre of War.

After playing through non-steam versions of Theatre of War 2 (Africa, Kursk, Battle for Caen) and Theatre of War 3: Korea I purchased the steam versions as well (during sale).
IMHO, this is not just another WW2 tactical game, it is the MOST REALISTIC simulator of company-level battles of 1943-1951 warfare!
Not easy to master for everyone who is used to "select'em all -> send'em all!" tactics! Every shell and armor interaction follows real physics laws, every unit moves are done in the real scale (time and distances), all battles are very intense and make you feel that this is how it was for real!
Every wargamer eager for WW2 realism must try at least!
