  • Summary: From the creators of "Codename: Panzers", Rush for Berlin is a tactical real time strategy game, set on the European battlefields of World War II, during 1944-45. The player’s goal; to capture the German capital, as either the British/US/French alliance or the Red army of the Soviet Union. The act symbolizes the total defeat of the Third Reich and means the end of the war on the European continent. Players face more and more challenges, as they get closer to the capital. The game is based on historical facts and gives wide possibilities for changing history and playing an alternative reality. [Deep Silver] Expand

  1. A fun title that doesn't take itself super serious. A good breath of air for a subject that sorely needs it.
  2. I really did like how you only have to manage time in this game as it gives you a greater sense of urgency on the things that have to be done.
  3. With it’s unique offerings it breaks away from the historical pack.
  4. Rush for Berlin is not groundbreaking or a game for the ages, but it doesn’t have to be those things to be fun. If you’re a strategy fan and you can put up with a few annoyances, you’ll find yourself having a good time with the game.
  5. The single-player campaign is varied and hardly ever falls into genre convention, which makes Rush for Berlin a decent WWII strategy romp. [Aug 2006, p.78]
  6. If you liked the "Codename: Panzers" or "Sudden Strike" series, you’ll love Rush for Berlin. It’s a challenging and fun game with some real highlights and nice surprises in most levels.
  7. 60
    Rush for Berlin plays it too safe, not striving to break into new ground with any new ideas or concepts.

    Nothing new under the sun, really. For die-hard fans of Panzers it might be A-OK, but everyone else NOT becoming sick of "Just another WK II game" might want to look further. Expand
