The player has limited resources with which to complete three scenarios which the game documentation describes thus:

- "The Streets of Khafji" - Command the infantry and artillery defense of this northern Saudi resort town as the Iraqis attempt to storm and take control of the town. Or control the Iraqi attack and see if you can hold Khafji.
- "The Az Zibayir Road" - The war is lost for the Iraqi Army in Kuwait, and the escape is underway. Led by elements of the armored divisions occupying Kuwait, the Iraqi Army attempts to return to Iraqi with great amounts of equipment and plunder.
