    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?

    Although perhaps a little too alike its predecessor, it is still a fantastic game. If you don't own Airland Battle, Wargame: Red Dragon is aAlthough perhaps a little too alike its predecessor, it is still a fantastic game. If you don't own Airland Battle, Wargame: Red Dragon is a must buy for all fans of realistic RTS warfare. If you do own Airland Battle, it's still a good buy even though it will feel more like an expansion than a stand-alone game.

    Single player is much improved, and the new asian factions are interesting. Also unlike most other games of today, Eugen offers free DLC updates with new and interesting units for the factions, offering ever-changing tactics as new and powerful units enter the battlefield.

    The game also introduces naval battles. While interesting, are seldom played in multiplayer, since you will mostly be playing on land maps.

    With the new asian factions, introduction of naval battles, epic 10v10 battles on new maps and great soundtracks Wargame: Red Dragon is a worthy successor of the wargame series.

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!

    I can't recommend this game. I've always loved and played RTS games but the Wargame's are way too.. Complex and confusing. There are no guidesI can't recommend this game. I've always loved and played RTS games but the Wargame's are way too.. Complex and confusing. There are no guides to help you in-game, no tutorial mission, nothing - aside from very small guides that are only a sentence or two long (not to mention the only thing that they cover are the things that hardly matter.) The AI is insane in this game. On easy you will get screwed. AI just randomly pops units out of nowhere in your secured territory - I can understand minor stealth units, but when tank battalions randomly pop out of a building it makes me wonder. AI always has an advantage over you. I just can't figure out this freakin' game, all my play time is mostly just me watching ally AI and how it works. Which ends up not being helpful because even your Ally AI goes bonkers. So I don't know, it looks good, plays well most of the time and is pretty intense but - it just needs a tutorial mission to help newcomers understand this game. For the veteran players that understand this game.. I probably could recommend it, however nothing has really changed from the previous game aside from the Naval units.

    Recommended on sale, around the >$10-$20 range.

    I was addicted to this game. Can't control myself. In the end, the game banned me for complaining the units on the forums. That's good becauseI was addicted to this game. Can't control myself. In the end, the game banned me for complaining the units on the forums. That's good because I can finally stop playing.

    If you want to play this game, have good self-discipline or otherwise, you will end up like me. Annoying the forums for better units. What was I thinking? Same as to you when you are mad at the unbalanced units.

    Hope you find this review useful. All in all, the game is outstanding but lethal.
