Blitzkrieg II builds upon theAn epic WWII RTS game where you strategically plan and command battles in multiple WWII theatres, choose reinforcements and use a wide range of new combat units through 3 global campaigns on the side of the Soviet Armed Forces, US Army or German Wehrmacht. Blitzkrieg II builds upon the success of the best selling Blitzkrieg and comes with tremendous focus on dynamic gameplay, new strategic opportunities and gritty realism of WWII battles. The new 3D graphic engine is a significant step above the original game and will get you in control of the most dramatic and bloody conflict of the past century. [CDV Software] Collapse

  1. Anyone who wants to experience the tabletop wargaming experience without purchasing all those little minuatures should take a serious look at this game. It offers so much detail for the retail price.
  2. 84
    Sure, it has a few blemishes, like an air control system that's a pain in the backside to manage and the usual pathfinding suspects, but the overall experience of deploying hundreds of different units, then winning or losing on the merits of tactical cleverness alone, is sure to put a smile on even the most jaded turn-based aficionado's grumpy mug.
  3. Those gamers looking for countless battle strategies with a variety of units and numerous possibilities will find this title to be a good bet.
  4. 80
    Strategy players will come up to speed quickly and enjoy the vast array of units and unit abilities, while WWII fans who aren’t too interested in stat tracking will dig the game’s accessibility and--living up to its name--focus on constant action.
  5. Blitzkrieg II is looking in fine form to lengthen CDV’s reign as World War II real time kings, and if only the pesky problem of units staying where you want them could be solved this would be an essential buy for every armchair strategist.
  6. While flawed, Blitzkrieg II makes a good single player wargame because it successful models the cold ruthlessness of war and the importance of using reinforcements wisely.
  7. 50
    Unfortunately, while the "big-picture" ideas manage to work, the game ends up being brought down by a number of annoying little details that make individual battles less fun than they might otherwise be.

    I enjoyed the first Blitzkrieg and was not immediately smitten with Blitzkrieg 2. BUT, it truly grew on me. Although I did not use the camera I enjoyed the first Blitzkrieg and was not immediately smitten with Blitzkrieg 2. BUT, it truly grew on me. Although I did not use the camera features too often it was nice to be able to freeze an explosion then pan around it. Or use the camera to 'see' into the jungle better. This is probably 2x as good as the first. I really liked this game -- I'm looking forward to any expansion packs. Expand

    although this is an old game, and the player base is tiny, I it is a very good game. decent single player too. I still love this game. onlyalthough this is an old game, and the player base is tiny, I it is a very good game. decent single player too. I still love this game. only drawback is relatively poor pathing, no player vs AI customs, and rarely has more than 15-20 people in the multi player (including running games). that said, usually have no problems finding a 3v3 match. really good strats involved too Expand
