Wargame Red Dragon retains the same game mechanics that made the series so successful, but the action leaves Europe for the fi rst time and moves to a confl ict in central Asia between 1975 and 1991. The astonishing IRISZOOM Engine returns in a brand new version: the engine's impressive zoom capabilities enable you to instantaneously dive directly from a satellite view to the heart of battles involving hundreds of units and move seamlessly through the ultra-detailed landscapes. 5 new nations, including China and North Korea, join the armed forces in Wargame, with over 450 new units. The introduction of naval and amphibious units is a particular highlight and the maritime and river areas provide fresh strategic opportunities! The full cohort of each army is represented with a phenomenal total of more than 1,300 units and combat vehicles, all reproduced in meticulous detail from real models. A new solo campaign plunges players headlong into a hellish war around Korea, while Wargame's extensive and road-tested multiplayer mode will engage them in some intense and spectacular battles with up to 20 other players simultaneously!

Online multiplayer is what most people focus on though and "this is where the fun is at".
The games big selling point, naval combat, is a bit like marmite...you like it or hate it. It is restricted though in terms of unit and maps.
The Chinese are under powered while the French, USA and the USSR are power houses (don't choose to fight with units from Japan and expect to win a skirmish battle against the Soviets), however constant balancing updates change this on a regular basis so this may have changed by the time you read this : ).
Well worth a look, but if you own the other two you may want to wait for a while until its on sale.
But it when it comes to tank combat it is a a lot better.. You get modern tanks in this such as challenger 2's and modernised m1's with t90's and their weapons seem to give a good impression of how powerful modern 120mm rounds and the armor on some of the tanks is a good view too
Naval combat is still severely lacking in realism as their ranges are pittyful compared to the real thing although the ciws of these ships are a BIT realistic. they are still rubbish.. and the lack of a aircraft carrier makes it harder to fully use destroyers as their main role in real life is to buy enough time for a aircraft carrier to launch its aircraft before it gets sunk. Without that purpose it is just a slightly better destroyer which costs a lot more. Plus the fact you can't even call in tomahawks from them to help assist with land strikes is bonkers. The russian ships are pretty nice in their gun area but they are normally a lot more accurate than they let on in the game due to the fire control systems the russians use.. Some shells do miss but 80-90 percent of the shells land on target while in the game it is 40-50 percent.
Aircraft massively lacks realism too as all their ranges are completely made up and none of the planes can actually dog fight.. So planes such as the euro fighter or the french rafale give a wrong impression to new people on military hardware as they are both very very good aircraft when it comes to anti air..Read more ›

I specifically bought the disc to AVOID starting a steam account and have their spyware on my PC.
I've heard too many horror stories about Steam, both about their intrusive and buggy software as well as about their company to want to have anything to do with them. This tactic to strong arm me into starting an account and giving them my personal details cost them a customer, I'm sending the game back.
