DescriptionThe Panzer General series of wargames had always been viewed in 2D, until this title. 3D Assault features a fully 3-dimensional world using models for the units, and a rotatable world view.
There are 8 different World War 2 campaigns to play through, with the chance to represent France, the USA or Great Britain. Units include a full roster of artillery, infantry and tanks.
Experience is handled in a different way to the earlier games in the series - points are assigned through commanders' achievements. Specialist abilities for commanders must be used wisely. The environment is interactive, watch out for burning forests and smoking damaged units.
