Blitzkrieg is the latest development in WWII real-time strategy gaming combining flexibility, historic accuracy and endless playability into one of the most challenging and enjoyable games yet! Blitzkrieg's unique and completely flexible campaign structure puts you in control of deciding how your forces will fare in each of the major engagements that comprise three central Campaigns.

Jul 17, 2012After all those years it still remains the best RTS I have ever played(and will be playing). The amount of units the game offers is simply amazing, and with every unit demanding a different approach you're in for a long learning time. The learning curve of this game is very steep, there are a lot of things you need to master to full take advantage of your army. The single player of this game is very realistic which actually makes it kind of boring since you're going to spend most of the time waiting for the artillery to do the job, you don't want to lose your units after all. What you really want to pick this game up for is the multiplayer, with 100's of customized maps this multiplayer will keep you busy for a couple of months/years. Granted, it may take you a few weeks before you actually win you're first game.
The game doesn't make use of building bases and resource gathering but you do have supply trucks + mining and demining vehicles, that can really make the difference in winning or losing a game. You can pretty much have an infinite amount of units. Don't buy this game for the graphics, buy it for the gameplay.… Expand
