    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!

    The game is really fun, if you are into RTS.

    Multiplayer, especially the tactical multiplayer maps with low income are really fun.
    I just wished, there were more maps that people would play with low income...

    3rd game of the series. And have some Improvement over previous Wargames.
    Best strategy game at the moment for sure. beats COH2 and MOW
    3rd game of the series. And have some Improvement over previous Wargames.
    Best strategy game at the moment for sure. beats COH2 and MOW series easily In making sense and realism category.
    But its not enough to give it 8 or 9. Especially when they wont learn from previous games.

    Really huge maps and beautiful maps. Again plains and now Ships!.
    Rivers can be crossed now by swimming units - no choke points.
    You can really go crazy tactic now. It became much harder game since tank spams are not that successful any more. I personally stopped using tanks at all.
    Def. you have to be much more smarter and careful with your units.

    Unfortunately instead of fixing basic issues they just keep adding more and more units.
    Looks to me they spreading they attention on everything ships, planes and miillion units and nations.
    Instead of narrowing and making it flawless.

    After 2 games they finally added some features people were asking from beginning ":
    - map view in lobby,
    - ban option from room ,
    And it only took them 3 games to do it! Congrats Eugene! You are fast learners hehe.
    Ask yourself a question why it took you soo long. What kind of people work at Eugene that don't what's going on in multi games that you need to sometimes BAN people. Once again, it took them 3 games to do it!
    Stupidity of that team is pretty much visible. Yeah add more units to counter that.

    But that would be it. Still no black list, still no availability to see what kind of deck your team-mate have.
    And other simple things that should be straight forward for strategy game.

    Looks like they hit their mind capacity and ideas limit.
    Good to know its last game from this series.

    Still no strategy level in multi. It is in single player, but in multi ? nope.
    Just one map game where everybody throws units on each other mindlessly without bigger picture option.

    It seems nobody from strategy games devs can do it these days. Wonder why is that?
    Would that mean people who make strategy games have no clue about those games and are not fans of them.. like Eugene.

    Eugene studios had potential and some great ideas but it run out of them long time ago.
    Since then their motto is "ADD MORE UNITS". Only because of the forum they were improving game.
    This is just sad.

    Still you should buy this game despite my harsh review .
    Its only playable strategy game going towards realism atm.
    But don't expect miracles here.
    And like always in Wargame series - good team-mates. Without them you are screwed.

    I say like this On W:ALB I had 812 hours. On W:RD I have only 100.
    So if you didnt played before in wargame series. BUY IT you will love it.
    If you did played before in wargame it wont have that initial sparkle to keep you long on it like me.

    Eugene - make good strategy game! Hire some people who actually have good idea about strategy!
    I dare you.

    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.
