post #1 of 64
Thread Starter 
Ok so ive been meaning to get on the site and see what people have been saying about this game, but ive been to busy playing it and doing other stuff.

So then i looked and no threads about it yet?? It received a 9 and above from every site/magazine ive seen so far and cannot be missed!

Info
its an Real Time Strategy that has an First Person Shooter feel, advanced AI, Psychics, battles really scar land, grenades send soldiers flying, frags topple buildings into crums that react different every time, use the scars of the battlefield to form new tactics, airstrikes are enormous & loud and feel like your ears have just been ringed out, captures a whole new WWII feel and sort of feels urban which is good IMO. hmmm i think ive said enough. but if your rig is anything like mine, and you feel like pushing it for the next generation

Then download the demo today, and buy the game tommorrow

and if your rig isnt up to par at the moment, this game is worth getting it above the bar

Buddy all I can say is this game is absolutely AMAZING. The most detailed eye candy of an RTS I have ever seen. Absolutely everything is destructible. Weapons and other things that certain troops can use are scattered throughout the battlefield. Close up they use enough face models that you can actually distinguish between your guys in a squad. Nothing blows up in the same way twice. Yup, theres a bloody good reason why it scored high points. Eye candy aside, the gameplay mechanics are fantastic! WWII never looked or played THIS great
