Quite an amazing game. I recommend that you buy it, and it was TOTALLY worth 20 bucks. The graphics are amazing, the troop diversity makes the game much more challenging, and honestly, it gave me an overall good time. Trust me. It will give you a good time, too.

This really feels like the strategic war game we were waiting for since the invention of the genre. (Actually, it's like most other RTS's, played on a tactical level of warfare).
This game has a very realistic feel to it. At all times, all your actions are truly part of the road to the final result of the mission.
If anything surprising happens which sets you back, it's because you didn't prepare for it. And surprises will happen, you will be off guard, the AI will hit you hard at some point.
There are some unfortunate flaws to make it a truly brilliant game. Win or defeat is not permanent, missions are replayable to improve your score. This game lends itself to make results more permanent. So that win or defeat would influence the war instead of a pre-determined sequence of missions. Unfortunately, Eugen Systems didn't implement that.
Still, it feels like the Real Time Strategy game we all have been waiting for. After playing it, we are simply waiting for the improvement on it.
8/10 very good game, a must play for fans of the genre, but still a lot of room for improvement

Excellent game. I prefer this over Airland Battle since it has more depth and a slower, more strategic pacing.

One of the best RTS games that i've ever played. Wargame: European Escalation is set in the cold war around the 1970's in a Nato vs Pact conflict. This game makes you think, such as what units you will need to use in battle. Sure, having a strong group of tanks is nice but you will also need anit-aircraft artillary in case of an oppenent launching an air attack. From what I have seen, there's always a counter unit to a unit. So basically if your oppenent does things right, he could destroy any of your units and you could destroy any of his. It all depends on the strategy you use. The single player has an interesting campaign and is challenging even on the easiest difficulty. There are not many people playing multiplayer, but you can find at least 1-2 matches a day. You are awarded command stars after completing tasks in mission or leveling up in muliplayer. Command stars allow you to purchase new vehicles for your armies. This will leave you playing for hours so you can unlock the tanks you want or a helicopter that looks cool. This game has a friendly community and I strongly recommend it to anyone interested in RTS games, or just strategy games in general.

Microstrategy like crazy. Loads of accurate period units. Awesome graphics that can scale to the lowest family computer to the best gaming rig. Singleplayer is difficult until you develop a strategy. As for multiplayer, some people like to spam helos, so take that into account. Altogether, a fun game, especially when played with friends.
