Description official descriptions

Blitzkrieg is a real-time strategy game with three campaigns during World War 2. During the campaigns the player keeps its core army of tanks and guns. In the missions there are additionally units provided by the game, including infantry and air units. There is a description of all units in the game, even if the units cannot be commanded by the player. The three campaigns are:

  • Allies (US, UK, French) fighting in Europe and Africa
  • German fighting in Europe, Africa and Russia
  • Soviet Union fighting in Russia and afterwards in Europe

The campaigns include historical battles like the battle of Kursk and optional bonus missions, which can be played to:

  • Get experience for the profile of the player to increase the rank of the profile. A higher rank leads to a larger core army.
  • Get experience for the units in the core army, so that the units become deadlier.
  • Exchange weapons to newer types.

During a mission the losses are never replaced, losses in the core army are replaced after missions. For the repairing and rearming of units depots have to be conquered, where the service trucks load their resources. All depots have unlimited resources.

The game itself has a 2D graphic, but uses a 3D terrain with a full destructible environment. Buildings can be occupied by infantry to use them as cover. The game includes maps for multiplayer matches over LAN or the internet.

A classic that have it's niche

The Good
Good graphics for it's time. Not just a simple WW2 game. It does have depth to it.

The Bad
The depth does add to complication which is the reason why I am not into it. I am just too shallow to be playing with games too much of the WW2 plot.

The Bottom Line
Played up to mission 4 only. Quite a tough game actually. But this game is quite well done. Good graphics with some nice action. The sound is nicely done which provide a nice feedback in terms of the war. The missions however are just a bit too tough for me with controls that are slightly cluttered. Some of the commands are not shown properly half of the time I am lost with the controls. The tanks war also make it hard to do properly because it will turn by it's own and when it happens they die easily because their side and back is vulnerable to attacks.

Overall, nice implementation but tough for me. I think this is more like my problem.
