While the player that memorises the stats of all 800+ unit types will inevitably enjoy an advantage, a bit of commonsense goes an awfully long way here: recon diligently, and don’t advance without some form of anti-air capability close at hand. AirLand’s survival secrets are simply the survival secrets of 20th century ground warfare.

Hard to learn and tough to play well, this game will attract only the hardest-core RTS player, the kind who cares about realistic combat and deep strategy. This is a game that will repay effort with success, but many will find it too much effort for not enough payoff.

It is an impressive design in just about every way, remaining at least somewhat accessible for all manner of strategy fans while not compromising any of its depth or details for more hardcore players looking for a serious wargame.

Zumal schon der Vorgänger unter ähnlichen Problemen litt, die Entwickler Eugen Systems kurz nach Release mit einem Update behob. Hoffen wir, dass dies auch bald mit Airland Battle geschieht.

It’s a shame that Focus haven’t done more to ease people wanting to jump in to AirLand Battle who’ve bought the original game, but in all honesty this is worth the money, even if Focus don’t follow the same DLC plan they did before. Wargame: AirLand Battle is out now for PC.

Not since European Escalation have I had to work so hard for my victories, and with the addition of aircraft and the absurdly huge 20 player matches, a whole new layer of strategy and tactics has been added to an already exceedingly deep series.

And though its initially punishing difficulty and relatively weak campaign will put some people off, those who stick around and learn how to play will be returned three-fold with hours of cerebral, if somewhat stone-faced strategy goodness.

All said, it’s a truly bizarre experience that must be improved upon if the developers have any aspiration of making a game to rank up there with the greats of the genre.

Oh, what tangled webs we weave! Any good RTS will spin out an elaborate tapestry of combined arms. Only the great RTSs do it with this much flavor. And none do it with modern warfare, give or take thirty years, as well as AirLand Battle.

Airland Battle kommt mit einem ausgedehnten Tutorial und vier Einzelspieler-Kampagnen daher, legt den Fokus aber immer noch auf den Multiplayer -Aspekt. Die Solo-Missionen sind denn auch mehr ein Anhängsel - in wenig attraktiver Aufmachung und mit...
