  • Summary: Early morning, 11 September 2010, the DMZ erupts in a symphony of death and destruction. Has the blitzkrieg began? It has, but the tanks and helicopters cutting a swath across no man's land aren't heading south - they're going north. The US-ROK invasion has just begun, and soon the Axis of Evil club will lose yet another member. You are there. While the cowardly leftists wail and gnash their teeth, fight for truth, democracy, and world freedom in Raging Tiger: The Second Korean War, taking the battle to another tinpot dictator that would be better off six feet under. Command an arsenal of next generation weapons and the brave warriors that use them as you fight on land, air, and sea. From heavy equipment carriers like HEMMTs to Harrier jump jets to the grunt on the field, Raging Tiger provides players with plenty of nifty toys to wage war with. [Shrapnel Games] Collapse

  1. Once you understand the game and commands it’s not too terrible, but the learning curve is really steep. You really need a lot of time to fully grasp this title especially if you are not a die-hard military RTS fan.
  2. It was frustrating, it was overwhelming, and it never managed to draw me in. I’m by no means a military enthusiast or a wargamer, so I’m probably a bit biased against this sort of title.
  3. The deep detail and high learning curve, combined with balky interface, will only appeal to the fan of pinpoint military accuracy who's willing to devote the time and patience to get control of it all.
  4. The armored Task Force engine is one of the most complete, and completely baffling, systems in modern computer wargaming[sic]. [Dec p.63]
  5. For those of you who crave endless realism in your war games, it's probably as realistic a military simulation as you'll get without risking being exposed to IEDs and insurgent attacks. For the rest of us, it simply fails as a game. [Apr 2005, p.87]
  6. Raging Tiger is a challenging wargame for masters of the genre, but I cannot recommend it for a general gaming audience. There’s simply too much to learn and not enough incentive for casual gamers to want to play.
