"Hit the mark everytime"
5 stars"

Its hard to find any fault with this game. A must add to any RTS fans collection. The destructible environment is amazing, with little details like blowing up a crater in the middle of the road can provide better cover for your troops. The sound of the troops marching across the battlefield e.g. “Tie your f*cking shoelaces Conrad”… awesome.

"Outstanding!!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This game is quite possibly the first strategy game that you really feel like you are experiencing the war. (maybe excluding total war series)

Graphics are amazing (for SLI users make sure to get the patch to fix the slow down bugs) and realistic. Great sound effect and excellent voice acting from units (Germans speak Germans) make you feel like war is actually happening.

Buildings and landscapes are completely destructible. Often after you finish a mission, its not uncommon to found out once a beutiful town become in ruins.

Resource system is similar to WarHammer Strategy game, but more complex and requires a lot more thinking.

Single player is great and long, multiplayer and skirmish is very enjoyable as well.

Only problem is you need a relatively high end system to run this game in ‘high graphic’ setting (you can run the game in low-medium and it should run fine in most mid range computers), also loading times is rather long.

Overall, amazing game and definilty raised the bar fro other strategy games.

9.3 out of 10 for me.
