    Just as DR Vs AK this is a real over looked gem. Crafted with a real pasion. Great graphics and gameplay to match.The detail is really something; down to the changing light reflecting off metallic surfaces. Don't be put off this game, it actually has many fans as the forums tell. Get if it a try !

    Much more enjoyable than Panzers which is a bit childish (and has very inferior pathfinding)! It's the second episode in a trilogie (but not the best)! But you have to like micromanagement of troops!

    The gameplay in D-Day is tactical and challenging but remains fun throughout and this is a satisfying combination. RTS fans will pick it up easily but there are some great additions to the genre too, such as your troops' range of special abilities, the interactivity with the environment that allows you to destroy or occupy (and fire from within) buildings and the bonuses you receive for adding differently skilled men to vehicle crews.
  2. Despite its smattering of positive elements though, D-Day reeks of being rushed to the table like a pot of undercooked sauerkraut.
  3. What it does feature (in large amounts) is lazy, un-inspiring map design, shoddy AI and pathfinding and ridiculous infantry micro-management. Hardly the groundbreaking improvements that the paying gamer demands these days, and we certainly don't blame them.
