As you battle your way through Europe in the Second World War, the gameplay in Blitzkrieg is often intense as you attempt to control multiple troops across the gaming landscape in front of you. Mess up and it's game over; this is not a base building exercise akin to the C&C range. Admittedly this is nothing new or adventurous. However, it's the little things that make this a thrilling RTS. Don't feed the supply lines to your forward troops and they soon run out of ammo. If a unit or bunch of units does well, they improve their skill making them a vital asset in defeating the enemy.
Graphics are what we have come to expect from the old school RTSs and while this isn't the most graphically beautiful game you'll find on your PC, it not only means that you can concentrate on the gameplay, but it also means this game is available to everyone rather than a select few with the latest powerhouse machines.
Overall, this is a demanding and challenging RTS with some very nice features. Yes it's another WWII RTS from CDV, but when they make them this good, who cares. --Jason Denwood.
Progress through the game is rewarded through access to the latest warfare technology, so strategic guile is recommended.
Accept the challenge and launch your assault, and remember "Attack is the best form of defence"
