Battlefront's game comes with a host of deserved accolades. An exciting small scale WW2 game based on great research and accuracy provides an immersive experience. Playable on-line, by PBEM, LAN, and against the AI.
Simpler than its later bretheren it is a landmark game with its use of the WEGO system. Basically this means you give your men [tanks. artillery, infantry] their orders and then one minutes time is revealed in a film - and you cringe as you realise your orders have a revealed enemy troops ready and waiting.
Fortunately your little troops have their own sense of survival and will make revised plans for the remainder of the turn ... if still alive.
Viewable in eight different ways the film is rewindable and stoppable - allowing you to bask in your good moves and examine the ones where a tank has blown up for no obvious reason.
The next turn you can re-plot to take account of what has gone before.
A truly great game.
