UPDATE: Wargame: European Escalation Review

 

Those Europeans sure know how to make a tough game.

Vivid sound and graphics; rewarding tactical gameplay; elegant controls

Some ridiculously difficult campaign missions; menu interface about as elegant as a VCR; weak storytelling

No one ever said war would be easy! But then again, nothing worth doing is easy. What's the hardest game you've ever beaten?

If you're an RTS gamer looking for a new battlefield, you'll definitely want to give Wargame a try.

Wargame: European Escalation won’t set any new benchmarks, but it’s a good RTS game with a strong community. A couple thousand players are usually online during peak hours, and thousands of sessions are run every day, so there’s no doubt you’ll find...

This excellent wargame/real-time strategy hybrid embodies the best of both worlds while destroying ours in a hypothetical Cold War-goes-hot setting.

Impressive mixture of wargame and RTS ; Intuitive interface and strategic view make for happy armchair generals ; Attractive killing fields ; Hundreds of unique units ; Definitively answers "How many Leopard 1A5s are needed to kill 24 T-62s

Uninspired unit chatter ; Lacks opportunities for friendly "comp stomps ; Insufficient map diversity

In Wargame, you can zoom out to a bird's-eye view reminiscent of Supreme Commander, at which point all the units turn into their respective standard NATO military symbols. Icons appear over units when they are running low on fuel or ammo or when they...

Growing up during the dawn of PC strategy games, playing everything from Dune II and Command & Conquer to Panzer General, took its toll on my teenage years. History classes only became worth paying attention to when it concerned old battles and famous...

After two decades, Wargame: European Escalation finally does modern warfare right.

Well, we will say one thing: Wargame: European Escalation doesn't really have the most original title we've ever seen in a strategy game. Thankfully, the lack of imagination ends there as it proves to be a surprisingly good time sink, and is all round...

Seeing a strategy come together and completely confounding your opponent. A successful airborne infantry assault is also pretty satisfying.

The iron curtain rises. Not in peace, however; this is the much-feared conflict between West and East.

There is a lot for Wargamers to like about this game. It's not just challenging from a tactical sense, but it's ease of control and its scale also make it a fun game to play. If RTS games are where you get your kicks, you won't be disappointed with...

With Wargame: European Escalation, Eugen have taken the well worn RTS template and honed it into a much tighter strategic game. Veteran strategy fans will love the depth of tactics and the huge list of unlockables, and though newcomers to the genre may...

It may end with a slog, but I'd already gotten dozens of hours of rewarding tactical play by that point. Especially with the impressive multiplayer mode, I can strongly recommend Wargame: European Escalation as an expert and innovative blend of the...
