This is the best WW2 game I have ever played! If you are into WW2 and have time to think about strategic moves rather than simply 'blow em up!' then this is the game for you. You can play the Germans, Ruskies, or Allies, and all the missions are fantastic, from sabotage to tank warfare, it's all good! The weapons and tanks are all accurate -Tiger II, Sherman Firefly etc, Bren guns, MP40s it's all here! The settings are superb, ranging from snow-covered wastes to urban warzones, with fully destructable buildings and landscape. You can zoom in and out of the player map, and take control of mostly everything. The sound is awsome too, explosions, machine gun fire, cannon fire, and screams of panic and pain! When playing some missions, it is possible (and needed) to just wait about and look around, rather then rushing in, as the AI is very good, and enemy soldiers seem to learn, and get curious if you're lurking too close to their base. Hit and run tactics are good here too, as there is little to no re-spawning off screen. This is a very good game and takes you into the frenzy of the firefight. It is easy to get caught up in it and play for hours...even days!
