    Not for the faint of heart!

    This game, simply put, is not for the people seeking a game similar to World In Conflict or Command and Conquer, but more of the serious armchair general who wants to play a strategic rts. The game r...

    The gameplay is ok, but the online community is horrible.

    Rated on June 16, 2013 by Absalomx

    One reason to buy a game like this for most folks is the online competitive multiplay. Unfortunately this game's community is as bad as most game communities. When a new player has a problem and ask...

    A polished and immersive experience with a few serious quirks that prevent it from obtaining true greatness.

    While I loved the idea of the original "Wargame" release, there was something.... off... about it that never quite a struck a chord with me. Airland battle on the other hang has sucked me in. Since I'...

    Airland Battle takes European Escalation, makes it more accessible, adds more toys to play with, and is totally awesome.

    Airland Battle is a pseudo-sequel to European Escalation, both games of which are based on Eugen System's engine that the WW2 RTS R.U.S.E was built on. The engine has seen noticeable upgrades. Not...

    Hey, you got my game in your realism! No, you got my realism in your game! Two great tastes that go great together!

    Wargame: Airland Battle splits the difference between game and simulation. On the one hand, you have magic supply trucks that resupply, refit, and refuel your troops in seconds. They even replace ...

    12 Nations, 828 units all of which are available in skirmish mode = One of the greatest RTS games of all time!

    I bought European Escalation and really never got into it a couple of years ago. I wasn't expecting much when it came to ALB, I expected pretty much the same, wow, was I wrong. This game has depth in...

    A much better, more fluid and refined experience.

    Rated on June 17, 2013 by Gamesterpheonix

    Im sure many people will agree in saying the first game Wargame European Escalation was a good but very limited and tedious game at times. The command star system tortured noobs and the game took some...

    Perfect, deep, engaging!

    Not only an ambitious effort by Eugen, a tremendous achievement. Epic in every sense, no other game allows you to feel this level of control and depth of modern operational level of combat. From...
