Conclusion: So how good is it? Well that really depends on what you’re in the market for. If you can stroll through most historical RTS games with your eyes shut and have a hunger for something to really get your teeth into, then Liberation offers the perfect 3 course meal along with complimentary with...
Conclusion: Blitzkrieg 2 is a good real time simulator of WWII battles on company regimental level. Once players grasp this system they can immerse themselves in the diverse units and settings and re-fight the great battles of WWII on their PCs.
Though by no means difficult or historically accurate, Blitzkrieg 2 is still a fun, fast-paced World War II strategy game that lets you steamroll opponents into the ground.

Summary: World War II has always been a favorite for Hollywood, mainly because it was a war that lends itself well to the big screen. This was a war of global scale with titanic battles, and there's something awe-inspiring about that.
Pros: Cinematic World War II gameplay, with tanks everywhere!, Destructible environments look pretty when they destruct, Lots of missions and variety, play from the Pacific to Europe, Fast-paced gameplay
Cons: Historically flavored, but the antithesis of actual historical accuracy, Incredibly easy on the standard difficulty level, Though pretty, graphics are admittedly dated
Excerpt: CDV's Blitzkrieg 2 is a hardcore grognard's dream: RTS gameplay simulations of famous WWII battles. Playing as either an American, Russian or German commander, you make the decisions about where and how to deploy your land, air or sea ordinance.
Pros: ups: Number of units and their level of detail, the 3-D engine
Cons: downs: Big battles will destroy your system frame rate, well trod material here
Conclusion: Overall, however, Blitzkrieg 2 is a worthy sequel to the original and an engaging tactical RTS game. The sequel is more elaborate, comprehensive and technically advanced than the original. Any WWII RTS buff will do good to buy it.
Pros: Plenty of hours of fun, comprehensive, detailed, very tactical and engaging;
Cons: Path finding issues, minor fog of war issues, doesn't bring anything radically new to a pretty depleted genre.
Conclusion: The music and sound really capture the battlefield feel well – tanks are carried into battle on the crest of a booming orchestral score, while the general babble of the units in their native language is nice, but occasionally infuriating – more than once I was baffled why a tank wasn't moving until...
Pros: Good mix of game action and realism., The orchestral score., Plenty of game to play., Ground shaking bombing runs.
Cons: Graphics are a couple of years behind the times., Crappy pathfinding and AI.
