Description

Decisive Battles of WWII: Ardennes Offensive is the first game in the Decisive Battles of WWII series. It's a turn based strategy game that takes place around the Battle of the Bulge. The hexagonal game map is displayed from above and the units are represented by icons, similar to what you would expect in a board game.

The game comes with eight scenarios with a varying number of turns in which to complete them. The scenarios can be played against the computer or against friends in hot seat, LAN, online or play-by-email.

The game is divided in turns, in each turn you can give orders to your units using a point and click interface. The game is very open in information. It shows exactly the strength of all forces, their modifiers and odds of winning; so nothing is left to chance and all focus goes towards a good strategy.
