The game draws you in then BAM!! Played the first "American" set - took a few adjustments to my strategy but eventually I prevailed. Very addictive. Then, apparently in order to continue the storyline you have to play the same conflict from the Russian side. I'm no Great Strategist, but I've been playing strategy games on the computer since they (the COMPUTERS) were invented, and gave up / uninstalled after 20 tries. There is no way to win without purchasing powerups. A very underhanded and deceitful way to make money, Gaijin.
One of the Best of its Genre I only rate games when they truly impress me. This is one of those games in the category of number vs number RTS. I usually hate these games, but this one has more to it and feels more like a true combat war game. I highly recommend it, and certainly worthy of a quick download to try it out for yourself.
A lot of fun Only had the game for a few hours, but so far it's actually pretty good. I still don't like the fact that every "free" game isn't really free. You can earn gold by slugging it out over time or you can pull out the old credit card use real money and advance more quickly.
Real time strategy This game is a lot of fun, but I don't really understand the end objective, the levels dont appear to end, you just keep playing and playing and playing. But the levels do get harder which makes it fun.
Simple and good This is a great game with an inventive and intuitive fighting system. Better than its sequels. The only problem is that on the really high levels the game is taken over by wild events that punish you for doing well and reward you for losing. They can result in long drawn-out stalemates and reduce the strategic element. Improving the AI and giving more user control over upgrades and air strikes would improve it. But it's a great game up to around level 30 or so. Also the campaigns are too easy.
Works on Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. Easy to get into but gets hard quickly. Fun if you like slightly laid back RTS games that have a tiny dash of Advance Wars in them. HOWEVER it becomes clear soon enough that you'll have to spend money to win battles! So, not free at all!
