Wargame: European Escalation is an intense and spectacular Real Time Strategy game, where realism and strategy are brought to the front lines. With a phenomenal range of vehicles and units (over 350 different models), build your army and enter a huge military campaign across Europe of the 80’s, as the Cold War is about to become World War 3. With the powerful IRISZOOM ™, Wargame offers breathtaking graphics and battles as spectacular as they are strategic. Prepare to bring hundreds of units of all kinds–tanks, helicopters, squad Infantry, etc.–under your command in intense battles on gigantic maps stretching up to 60 square miles! Online service EugenNet© provides a full multiplayer experience with creation of clans, organizing games, and world rankings where up to 8 players can compete simultaneously in massive battles involving hundreds of units!
A pretty interesting strategy game that can be really challenging at times, often in a good way, though occasionally in ways that are a little perplexing. Free DLC has been released several times since the games release, which is always a good plus. Very much for the heavily strategy and tactics oriented, considering this is one of those games where knowing the details of how your units work and how they are most effective is the way to go. It may seem like you are presented with an overwhelming amount of information with no real way to figure things out, but make sure to give the first several single player missions a go, as they have instructions sprinkled within.
