    A Tom Clancy flair with "Endwar" massive scale it does leave an almost lacking feeling has RTS died?

    Rated on February 23, 2012 by kingfuzzball01

    this game brought back memories of the days of world in conflict, endwar and many other RTS Gods of the last decade. It trully seems that the age of true RTS is over. Before anyone argues Starcraft 2 ...

    A real RTS that is well balanced and no unit is to OP.

    It's been years since real RTS has come out. Great mutliplayer game play. It has just about everything you could want and the graphics are actually really good, DX11. I was so hesitant to purchase thi...

    Interesting Concept Needs Polish

    Rated on February 25, 2012 by oflow

    Having been a huge fan of RUSE, when I saw Eugen Systems was making a modern combat RTS game I was excited. The game is based in the 80s, where the Cold War turns hot and basically escalates into W...

    Too slow paced for RTS players, and not realistic enough to be a simulation, Wargame creates its own original niche.

    Rated on February 27, 2012 by deanco

    Wargame: European Escalation is a game that is full of contradictions. It wants to be a realistic military simulation, yet has resupply units that will magically repair, rearm, and refuel your army. I...

    This game hits sweet spot between military simulator and video game entertainment. There are moments of suspense

    Wargame make you feel like your units are valuable and that your army has to be ready for anything. Depending on the match, 1 minute into the game you could already be in a large battle with a combin...

    A unique blend of realism with typical RTS elements that is unique and greater than the sum of its parts.

    Rated on February 28, 2012 by kelanismoria

    Wargame caught my attention rather late in its development, but in a good way by focusing on the (curiously ignored) era of the cold war. Superficially it looks like world in conflict, a cold war set...

    A game that deserves more attention.

    Rated on March 01, 2012 by huangzhihao

    One easy way to introduce a new game might be by comparing it with another similar and well known game. WEE reminds many people of World of Conflict, and having played both games, I have to agree that...

    Not World in Conflict but still quite fun and worth the money.

    Rated on March 03, 2012 by cpsesq

    World in Conflict is probably one of my all time favorite games. I have been craving a sequel. This game looked like it had the potential to be one and it turns out that is just not the case. However,...

    Great game, great multiplayer, too much forest crawling

    Rated on March 12, 2012 by roman_sulzhyk

    I love the game. I've been playing since launch, got about 1650 ELO rating (nick Spetsnaz) and am apparently in the top 100. The game is great and the multitude of strategies is simply staggering....

    Best PC Strategy Game in the last 2 years

    Rated on March 13, 2012 by darkcrypto

    Great Game! I am glad to see that these types of bread and butter strategy games are still being made. The game is set in the 1970's and 1980's on the European Battlefield with Nato vs. Warsaw Pac...
