  • Summary: Western Germany, March 1964...The last Great War continues to rage on. All you have ever known is the madness of the front lines and of men butchering each other. War-torn Europe stands ripped apart by a front line that runs straight through the heart of Germany where American and Western European troops battle against enemy forces. In an eternal war that seems to have no end in sight, opposing forces mercilessly attack each other with unrelenting force, claiming small victories one day only to lose them the next. As Lieutenant James Anderson you must infiltrate and destroy key enemy positions deep behind enemy lines using your sharpened combat skills and stealth where necessary. If successful, your mission could finally put a stop to the carnage and restore what everybody has long since forgotten about: peace. Alternative history: between reality and fiction, Iron Storm takes place in an imaginary environment which has been inspired by real events. Iron Storm takes real elements from the First World War; trenches, barbed wire fences, mines, gas warfare, snipers?and combines them with more modern elements from the Second World War; automatic weapons, radar, tanks, flame throwers? as well as elements inspired by modern warfare; helicopters, lasers, electronics and more.

  1. The story is what really what makes Iron Storm rock!
  2. 80
    A pretty basic shooter, but if you're looking for a little bit of mindless fun you'll find a game that, despite some problems, will satisfy your that itchy trigger finger you've been needing to unleash.
  3. If there were a category for set design and creativity, this game would be one of the forerunners for most creative of the year.
  4. What hurts this game more than anything else, is that it could have been so much better.
  5. Iron Storm does look and feel dated because of the graphics, and because of the type of gamplay that is offered. While it does feel like a complete game, and while I did feel satisfied playing it, it left me felling like the storyline should have been done justice.
  6. An interesting premise, but dismal AI and frustrating trial and error gameplay ultimately weigh this title down.
  7. Iron Storm has its own versin of the "what if" game: what if WWI had never ended? Unfortunately, it may leave you wondering, "What if I was playing a game that was more fun?" [Feb 2003, p.80]
