Fight as British, Americans, Russians or Germans through more than 30 challenging missions across Europe in this tactical 3D isometric Real Time Strategy game. Although it might sound like a typical World War II RTS, Soldiers: Heroes of World War II has some features that makes it unique.
The most distinct feature is Direct Control that allows you to precisely command your units and vehicles (such as a tank or a jeep), with the arrow keys to move and mouse to aim with. This gives the the feel of an old time arcade action game. Note that this is not like other action-strategy games (i.e. Battlezone
) that changes the perspective to an first person view, but keeps the isometric view throughout the game.
Other features that sets it apart from the RTS norm is the advanced physics engine that allows everything to be destroyed and a hit system where for example tanks take more damage from the rear than from the front (no energy bars like in other RTS games). This gives the game additional depth to the tactical mechanics of the game. Things like these in combination with the openness of each map makes sure that there is always several ways to complete each mission. The game also features an inventory system similar to RPGs, with a drag and drop interface. This allows you to pick up equipment from fallen enemy soldiers.
