  • 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. It may not be original, but Rush to Berlin is fun, which makes it worth considering for a second, third, or fourth tour of duty. [Oct. 2006, p.73]
  4. I liked Rush for Berlin and found myself returning to it many times. Unfortunately after about an hour or two, I would grow weary of the slow and repetitive progress I was making across the map.
  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]

    No surprise, the A.I. rolls over on anything less than Hard, and getting units into tactically feasible formations can be like herding drunken snails.
  7. 60
    Rush for Berlin plays it too safe, not striving to break into new ground with any new ideas or concepts.

    It's an old game and has some pretty fun features. In a way. But all the fun is ruined by horrible path finding problems that gets your troopsIt's an old game and has some pretty fun features. In a way. But all the fun is ruined by horrible path finding problems that gets your troops killed and makes you pull your hair out. This game belongs in ancient history museum of crappy games that you should leave to dust. Expand
