Review: Wargame: AirLand Battle

It took a truly horrific defeat for me to knuckle down and attempt to break through Wargame: AirLand Battle's tough, uncaring exterior. I'd tossed aside the campaign, had one skirmish match under my belt, and I dived head-fir...

Review: Wargame: European Escalation
by Maurice Tan

Growing up during the dawn of PC strategy games, playing everything from Dune II and Command & Conquer to Panzer General, took its toll on my teenage years. History classes only became worth paying attention to when it concerned old battles and famous generals, and I even had a period where I was convinced I was destined to become a battlefield commander when I grew up.

As I quickly learned when the PC real-time strategy genre became more competitive in the online age, the last place I should be is in a position where I command lives without a restart option. That itch for virtual battlefield control has never waned, however, and while the Total War games provide a good scratch, they are sorely lacking in enabling modern military prowess.

Almost 20 years later, I can finally fulfill my dreams of becoming a modern-era military commander in Wargame: European Escalation. And 20 years later, it's still painfully clear that I'm unfit for command.

A look at Wargame: European Escalation's multiplayer

In August, Maurice Tan gave us pretty extensive preview on Wargame: European Escalation. Much in the same vein as Eugen System's R.U.S.E. that came before it, Wargame is a deep real-time strategy game with a focus on epic war...

R.U.S.E. was a pretty fun game to play on the PC, but it felt a bit like Eugen Systems had to hold back on depth to also make it work on the console version.

For Wargame: European Escalation, the developers have seemed to go all out on creating an incredibly realistic, deep, but still fun real-time strategy game that uses an updated version of their IRISZOOM engine used in R.U.S.E.
