  1. There's plenty of potential in the Officers franchise. Few games manage to capture WW2 this well at the tactical level. But a few problems with friendly AI and stability do drag the score down somewhat.

    Like a decent enough war movie then, it's something that you can sit and occupy yourself with on a lazy Sunday afternoon, but not something that's going to last for long as a truly memorable experience.
  3. Despite the amazing scope and intensity of the battles (during the Omaha Beach offensive I’ve burnt 750 German tanks and killed 17500 soldiers), there will come an inevitable moment when Officers becomes boring and turns into Blitzkrieg 2 on steroids.

    At root, this is another "Blitzkrieg" ringer. [Aug 2009, p.89]
  5. This is one of the worst types of tragedies that can befall a game – to be brimming with potential and fun gameplay, only to get ruined with technical blunders.

    Officially generic. [Oct 2009, p.70]

    Fans of hardcore strategy sims are sure to lap it up, but for everyone else it's a tedious walk in very familiar territory. [Aug 2009, p.99]
  8. Officers boasts some interesting strategic considerations, including a focus on reconnaissance and realistic supply concerns, which have been lacking in recent RTS games. However, the practically nonexistent multiplayer, the punishing difficulty, the exhaustingly long missions, and a few other annoyances make it a difficult game to recommend.

The game introduces 6 missions for Allies from Normandy to heart of Germany. The positive thing is huge maps, requisition of new units based upon your progress (you do not have to capture all enemy locations, but the more you capture, the more units you can field), quite good cooperation of armors and infantry (you need to make a recon using a scout infantry as your tanks do not see so far and ca easily be killed by hidden AT guns or panzers). The number of units you can use is also sufficient. Regarding the graphics, it is not top of the line, but also is not the worst I have seen. I would say it is quite sufficient. In a summary, the game certainly kept me entertained for many days and I can recommend it to everyone who likes a good and somewhat realistic strategy. Full Review »

    This game is just horrible. I feel like I'm playing a game back in 1995 when I play this game, Just horrible. Should have known not to This game is just horrible. I feel like I'm playing a game back in 1995 when I play this game, Just horrible. Should have known not to listen to the critics and buy this sorry game on steam, now I'm out of 30 bucks and stuck with a worthless waste of space on my hard drive. At leased I've have a 30 dollar coaster if i bought it from a retailer, that or I'd have a pretty good shot at being about to return this junk game. Just a Garbage title, don't waste your time and for God sacks read the user reviews before you buy and not the critics. Full Review »
