"A busy game to play"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This game is very involved in it'sĀ game play. If you are looking for a standard strategy game similar to Command & Conquer.....forget it. For those that like to have complete involvement, down to the last nut and bolt, this is for you. Graphics are good and it is enjoyable to play. Just keep in mind that as far as relaxed playing styles go, this is not one for you. This is a busy game and takes some time to master the control keys and options. Others may disagree to my comments, their choice.


Desert Rats vs. Africa Korps places you in the heat of battle between legendary generals Montgomery and Rommel during the North Africa campaign of World War II from both the Axis' and Allies' perspective.

Prepare for battle in the rugged desert landscape by selecting the right combination of units, combat vehicles and tactics. Stunning graphics and audio are constantly on display with real time shadows, damage effects and explosions that contribute to the exhilarating atmosphere that only Desert Rats vs. Africa Korps can deliver!


  • Variety of Units: More than 70 different units are available, each with its own complementary characteristics, including eight specialized soldiers (rifleman, scout, machine gunner, medic, sapper, flamethrower, sniper, grenade launcher) and seven categories of vehicles (recon, tank, anti-tank artillery, anti-air artillery, transport, air support) unite to form the player's armies.
  • Cutting Edge 3D Technology: Provides the game with natural looking desert terrain, beautiful lighting and shadow effects, realistic unit animations and movement, and breathtaking special effects.
  • Enhanced Combat Realism: Every vehicle and building can be captured; front, side and rear armour are taken into account; only fully-crewed vehicles are 100% operational. In addition, every vehicle can acquire up to three levels of experience upon successfully completing a mission. Pause feature allows players to think over their tactics at anytime and to schedule up to three orders per unit.
  • Deep Single Player Experience: Desert Rats vs. Africa Korps presents an unparalleled single player experience which includes a management phase at the beginning of each mission to prepare for battle. The story-driven campaign spans 20 missions ranging from recon operations to large-scale battles for desert fortresses.
  • Multiplayer Gaming: Five different multiplayer modes including death match and capture the flag are available via Gamespy or LAN for up to four players.
