Description

Ardennes Offensive is a World War II first person shooter set during the Battle of the Bulge. The player takes the role of an American soldier, Cowell who was out on patrol when the Germans suddenly attacked the allied camp. Cowell survives the attack but finds himself alone and injured among the German forces. His only hope survival is to make it to the allied camp but to reach it he has move through the center of the enemy lines. At the same time Cowell has to gather as much information about the German offensive as possible and do what he can to sabotage it.

Ardennes Offensive follows the traditions of the genre. It consists of seven missions where the player combats German soldiers in both indoor and outdoor locations. There are five weapons (pistol, rifle, machine gun, sniper rifle and rocket launcher) available plus hand grenades. Each level has a number of objectives that the player has to succeed with. Most of these involve destroying the equipment and infrastructure of the enemy and gathering intelligence. As the player is injured at the start of the game, he is not allowed to take too long time with the mission or he might bleed to death.
