Do you like strategy?
Do you like WWII?
Do you freaking hate the brain damaged "rush with a million of these
" resource system that pervades most RTS today?
You want Blitzkrieg
Within seconds (literally, no foolin') of starting the first demo mission, I realized this was about ten times deeper and more realistic than any other game of any type I've ever played. It's not just looks, either, though animations are butter-smooth. The type and purpose of your units, their relative power, the way they move, everything is superbly crafted to make you feel like you're really an eye in the sky in 1942.
In each mission, you play either the Western Allies, the Germans, or the Soviets. You start with a base and some troops, and your mission, while ultimately to elminate your enemy, is broken down in to many different parts which you can do many different ways. Reconnaisance is a key aspect of the game, as is keeping supply lines open. Rather than mining resources like in most RTS, your base, and any towns, warehouses, or railways you capture on the way to your objective, give you an infinite stream of resources which must be distributed to your units in the form of ammo and reinforcements via supply trucks. Air support is another important element of strategy. You can call in spy planes, troop transports, light ground attack squadrons, and carpet bombers at regular intervals, and you can bat your opponent's stuff out of the air with interceptor squadrons.
All in all, it's very solid. I've only played the demo, and I still had more fun than with any other strategy game. If you have money, go buy the real thing and the expansion that's coming out tomorrow. For some reason, this game hasn't been as popular stateside as it is in Europe, and that's just a damn shame.
