    I game that has a lot of potential and looks great suffers from some repetitive game play as well as some weird AI. However worth pushing through as a decent RTS leaning stronger to the sim side than action.

    A good game, but with very low replayability. It will take some hours to master the basics but after that you don't really do anything else. It's still fun, especially the battle of Kursk or defending in Normandy, or the Polish missions, but it could have used more missions with more variability, more nations, more weapons and so on.

The game offers something good and realistic, just not enough of it to make it a great game. Imagine if it offered all of the nations involved in World War 2, or at least those in Europe, and scenarios for every one of them. A campaign similar to that of World in Conflict might have also work. As stated before, a good game, regardless of the things it lacks. Expand

  1. Its tactical focus and total absence of resource gathering or base building make the learning curve a little twisty for tank-rush types. However, the authenticity and atmosphere bring the Second World War to life in impressive fashion.
  2. Thinking gamers will appreciate the fact that Theatre of War presents them with a series of tactical problems rather than simply a chance to rack up the body counts. And anyone who's been jaded by the ease of other mainstream RTS franchises will enjoy the fact that this is a game that doesn't coddle its players.

    The environments, repetitive though they are, are simply stunning.
