Description

This action-orientated game takes you through 18 missions taking place throughout the WWII. Six Missions per side (Americans, Russians and Germans) place you inside a tank from the corresponding period (for example, in the first mission of the game you drive the famous German Panzer II Ausf. C).

Your tank is equipped with a cannon with limited ammo and a MG with unlimited ammo. With this arsenal you now have to complete different objectives (which can change throughout the mission) inside the missions like blowing up a fuel depot. In this process you also destroy and blow up many other things in the almost completely destroyable environment (from trees to houses) and of course you've to fight against enemy infantry and tanks.

The game also gives you command over a squad of friendly tanks which you can give simple but effective commands like 'make a flank attack on that position' or 'go and repair yourself at this repairstation'.

The mission-briefing consists of original WWII film footage where a speaker explains different aspects of the tank-war and a text (read to you) in which the story of your tank-crew is explained.

First Battalion Windows The graphics of the game are very well done, in fact they are so good that compliment well the thought that war is only good for computer games and not reality...
