    The best WWII RTS I've played. The feature to issue multiple commands while paused helps balance the fact that you are often in control of hundreds of units. It can be quite the challenge, as well. I can come back to this game any time and it has yet to become boring.

    This game totally kicks most other RTS games to the curb. It has stunning graphics and awsome sound which makes the whole game better. Many of the missions depict many real battles like Bastogne, Stalingrad, and D-day and even has a mission based on the movie Saving Private Ryan.

    This game is one of the best of it's class, no other game I know can provide you with historic units and sides of all angles to play in this historic time period. This game just keeps getting better and better the more I play it, I suggest it to anyone, even if rts is not your class.

    The graphics are stunning. Assaults are fast and furious with little room for error. There are some issues around movement that lend to the confusion of a fire fight. My only issue with the game is that units are not realistically depicted in terms of endurance and firepower (i.e. Tiger tanks being easily taken out by Shermans).

    The game is simply awesome. The graphics, the battle structure, the whole concept of a game without the same old production crap. If you suck so bad that you can't win with what you are given, try C&C.

  1. What is really impressive about Sudden Strike is that it creates a more realistic battlefield than other RTS games without bogging everything down in statistics.
  2. A solid game and a great introduction for those who are tired of the mindless carnage in RTS titles but aren't ready to cut their teeth yet in hardcore wargaming. Those who approach this game with a cannon fodder mentality will definitely be in for a rude awakening.
  3. An enjoyable change of pace and presents enough atmosphere, and solid gameplay to entertain, just don't expect any of it to be easy.
