- Summary: It is September, 1943. The armies of the 3rd Reich occupy virtually the entire territory of Europe. The lands taken by the Germans spread from Brest, a town on the western brink of the continent, to the suburbs of Stalingrad. Numerous resistance groups operate in the occupied regions of Europe. Using the tactics of surprise attacks and the support from local people, they can effectively confront much larger, better-equipped and trained troops of the enemy. The British government dispatches one of its best commandos to the Central Europe. Poland, Lithuania, Ukraine and Belarus are the countries where the resistance movements are most active. The Englishman’s tasks involve training and support for local guerrilla fighters in the most daring sabotage and diversion actions. Among others, you will embark on typical missions like blowing up bridges, assaults on enemy convoys to stack up necessary ammo and weapons. The player will also participate in a bank robbery, and last but not least – destroy a legendary facility producing V2 rockets! [City Interactive]… Expand
Like most games we've played from Polish-based City Interactive, Battlestrike wallops you with audio. There's a lot of it, and from the pitter-patter of rain to the sweet little birdies in the trees, the "thunk" of a bullet hitting some part of your fleshy body, and the sub-thumping smash of an exploding munitions factory, it's all good. Each weapon in your arsenal sounds distinctive, and that's good too.
