Deze add-on is een aaneenrijging van enkele zeer pittige missies die niet bij alle hobby-generaals in de smaak zullen vallen.

It’s not an original game by any stretch of the imagination, but a combination of its historical bent and honed strategy staples mean Blitzkrieg II: Liberation should satisfy the demands of anyone who’s in the market for a decent RTS.
Definitely not for everyone, there's a small group of who will potentially enjoy this expansion pack: namely, those who enjoyed the initial release of Blitzkrieg 2. A condensed and focused tactical strategy game, Blitzkrieg 2: Liberation fills a narrow niche. Difficult to a fault, only series veterans will have a chance at victory.

Blitzkrieg 2: Die Befreiung ist willkommener Nachschub für alle Blitzkrieg-Veteranen. Das Missionsdesign bietet allerdings altbewährte Kost und der bei Profis angesiedelte Schwierigkeitsgrad dürfte viele Anfänger abschrecken. Ein anderes Problem ist die eingeschlafene Fangemeinde. Online einen Mitspieler zu finden grenzt schon an ein Wunder und die Inaktivität der offiziellen Blitzkrieg Seite ist erschreckend. Somit wird man auch mit den neuen Mehrspielermodi nur wenig Spaß haben. Fans und Blitzkrieg-Veteranen sollten mal einen Blick riskieren, allen anderen rate ich, sich woanders umzuschauen.

Eigentlich bietet das allein lauffähige Addon Die Befreiung für Blitzkrieg 2 alles, was das Herz eines historisch interessierten Weltkriegs-Strategen erfreut. Allerdings können weder der riesige Fuhrpark noch die neuen Schlachtfelder in Italien und Frankreich über das meist langweilige Missionsdesign hinwegtäuschen. Für Fans dennoch einen Blick wert.

Завершающие слова хочу позаимствовать у императора Франции Наполеона Бонапарта. «Главное в войне: это пространство и время. Второе беспокоит меня гораздо больше. Пространство можно отвоевать, время же вернуть нельзя»… Задумайтесь — мудрость веков скрыта в короткой фразе. «Освобождение», безусловно, лучше безвкусного «Возмездия», но… только не после Company of Heroes, «В тылу врага 2» и «Второй Мировой». Прогресс, знаете ли. С учетом того, что здесь нет кампании за СССР (16 миссий поровну поделены между союзниками и Германией), остается лишь гадать, на что уповали украинские разработчики.
Wargamers are a committed and hardcore breed, but only the most die-hard Blitzkrieg 2 fans are going to get much enjoyment out of Liberation. That's very likely a large enough group to make the title a commercial success for CDV, but it won't do anything to extend the appeal of the game or the possibilities for the genre as a whole. The missions are just too unforgiving and too similar to what we've seen already from the series to qualify for more than this qualified recommendation: if you like Blitzkrieg 2 (and Fall of the Reich) and all you want is more of the same, Blitzkrieg 2: Liberation will deliver it. If, on the other hand, you're waiting for a game that offers a new perspective or challenge, well, just keep waiting.
