    Red Dragon should open the wish list of every gamer who shares the view that RTS games should promote strategic thinking, not fast clicking. [06/2014, p.66]

    It’s more of the same, but better, which was to be expected, and I have enjoyed playing it a lot.

    Everything that is important for the Wargame series has been improved or expanded in Red Dragon. The developer has introduced naval battles, but unfortunately this novelty looks quite poor - which is a shame, because it was supposed to be the biggest new feature. Still, the game itself is miles above mediocrity and keeps on providing lots of fun for wannabe generals.

    New units, a little bit of polish and that’s about it. But it stills works like a charm! [Issue#242]

    Probably the best Wargame title yet, but with weaknesses regarding innovation and balance.

    Eugen System again delivers a really good product: a gorgeous-looking simulative strategic game that embodies the cold war perfectly. The only downside is that it doesn't deliver enough new things for what you pay. Avoid it if you're a newcomer.

    Ships that trip over each other and bumble around islands and pivot in the water and soak up an indeterminate amount of damage and, worst of all, relate poorly to the rest of the game. This is not the naval counterpart to Eugen’s smart implementation of air power. Why couldn’t they come up with a similarly graceful way to head out to sea? Why is Wargame: Red Dragon yet another RTS added to the wet heap of naval systems worth ignoring?

The graphics have been enhanced immensely and the game looks incredible. The new units and the ships are very fun to play and add a new dimension to the game.

    The old spam tactics from Airland battle are completely gone now due to the many new changes to the units, the mechanics, and the balance.

    The game is even more tactical and the large maps add a whole new strategic dimension to the game.

    The new factions are all unique in their own way and add alot of character to the game.

    The best strategy game without any doubt since both multiplayer and single player are now extremely fun and provide many many hours of gameplay.

    The best RTS on the market!

The big ones (Starcraft 2, League of Legends, DOTA 2 etc) get much of the attention in the gamingmedia AND in broader channels, but if you´re not 13 years old anymore and want a REALISTIC game with REALISTIC pacing and units that are actually used in todays battlefields and conflicts, look no further!

    Here you have over 1500 realistic units made between 1951-1995 to choose from, all presented superbly in the showroom OR on the field of battle. Everything from soldierplatoons, troopvehicles, tanks, artillery units, helicopters, fighterjets, logistic units, MultiRocketLaunchers, Naval units, such as cruisers, destroyers, Corvettes and hangar ships. You name it you got it! Weapons, vehichles and Soldiers painstakingly recreated from USA, UK, Russia, France, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Poland, Chech Republic, DDR, Soviet, China, N Korea, Southkorea, Japan, Australia, New Zeeland.

    And, it is also easy to use! It takes tactical thinking and good timing to master this game, and the multiplayer part is brilliant with the possibility to find friends and join up for battle on a whole range of different maps and goals.
    You´ll be hooked on this game because it´s something you can relate to, real battles on our territory! There is some great Campaigns, and if that´s not your thing, go directly om the multiplayer part and find fast paced realitic modern warfare fore those who know what they are talking about!

    This is the new benchmark wargame out there people!

An improvement over the previous titles, it is now much more of a complete RTS. It is one of the best RTS games available at the moment, and requires more realistic tactics, thought and gameplay than other RTS games. It feels more like a realism RTS.

    Multiplayer is where this game truly shines. The single player is just ok, so in my opinion you shouldn't buy it just for the SP. Multiplayer has a steep learning curve, but is well worth it once you understand the game play and functionality. Just don't go in to it expecting another Command & Conquer!

    The deck building function of the game is also great fun in its self and gives you the option to build your own unique forces. You'll be constantly trying to perfect your deck to be the best it can be, chopping and changing as your tactics change.

    Endless fun!

    Single player ok, defiantly not what to buy this game for. Its just not quite what it could be, however the new campaign is quite good.Single player ok, defiantly not what to buy this game for. Its just not quite what it could be, however the new campaign is quite good.

    Multiplayer is very good, the balance is getting better and the new large maps are a better size than previous titles.

    Naval however is awful. in combined land and sea battles they are ok, but naval alone is poor. Feels like there is no strategy.

    Would hands down recommend for multiplayer.

    So, they are selling this crap-game for a full price and there is nearly o difference to the older games. Oh wait, there is a big difference:So, they are selling this crap-game for a full price and there is nearly o difference to the older games. Oh wait, there is a big difference: It's much worse! It's unbalanced, and not just a bit, with equal good players one faction IS ismply better. Also it costs more and the graphics arent better. Just dont buy it! Expand
