Rising Storm 2: Vietnam Review

When you play Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, just keep your head down, follow orders, and remember that you are not special; you are just a cog in the war machine and your only hope for survival is to lean on your wits, more so than to rely on your quick twitch trigger finger. Even then, you better hope your commander has a good head on their shoulders, otherwise you are in for a long day.

Engaging, although sometimes annoying and tedious. Expensive, but you get enough content to make it worthwhile. Occasionally, the difficulty dulls the desire to keep playing. Romance of the 3rd Kingdom XIII, Fame and Strategy leaves one happier having played it, and Koei Tecmo and Kou Shibusawa gracefully inspire interest in the history, culture, drama, and intrigue of the times of this title.

Dawn of War III is very a solid foundation for the future of the franchise, but it lacks fresh flavor. The expansions to this title are sure to add races, storylines, and mechanics that are simultaneously new and nostalgic, but this initial release is somewhat bare-bones.

When Order of Battle moved to free-to-play just under a year ago, Slitherine and The Artistocrats officially started a move to offer wargames to its audience with the goal to attract new players to the challenges and complexities of deep turn-based strategy games. This undertaking sparked a new life for the franchise.

There are very few negative aspects to Blitzkrieg 3, which brings unexpected, fresh ideas to one of hardcore gaming’s most recently underserved areas. Blitzkrieg 3 isan exemplary real time strategy title, and it benefits tremendously from its developer’s fourteen years of work on the series and in the genre. Whether you've been with the genre since Dune II, or whether your experience with real-time strategy is somewhere in the nil-to-MOBA range, Blitzkrieg 3 is absolutely worth your time. Get this game and go kill you some Nazis today.
