Summary: This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Banlance not good enough, GER units too expensive and its abilities really not good enough, especially compared with USA and USSR units(tanks much cheaper and still powerful). It's the most serious point. So in multi games,ppl almost choose USA or USSR,not GER,because its really much easier to get win,even the same one with the same skill.
Summary: To tell you the truth I have never expected such a thrill from another WWII game. Don't take me wrong, I love WWII games, but I was already a bit tired of the topic and didn't play that kind of games much. Nevertheless, Order of War really made me spend hours and hours in front of my PC. The multiplayer is a real thing! Very many moments reminded me of Total War and Company of Heroes, but also, I have noticed many enhancements in comparison with these older games.
Summary: Quite a decent WWII RTS with ample mp opportunities. Some minor balance issues (US paratroopers for instance) that will be hopefully!!! fixed with the next patch keep me from giving Order of War a 9.
Summary: The game is visually attractive and features quality sound effects. Unfortunately, The voice narration is beyond bad and the game mechanics are poor and quite "buggy" with frequent memory errors. Unit strengths are listed and indicate that there are unique characteristics for each unit type, however, in actual game-play one type of unit within a class is exactly as any other.
Summary: In a nutshell it is World in Conflict with different textures. The concept is the same, the unit recruitment is the same, I think they even did the artillery the exact same. Those vertical lines with the pathetic exposions... Good realistic artillery effects can be seen with Company of Heroes. That game was the first I was impressed with the level of detail in the explosion effects and the authentic sound of artillery coming in.
Summary: lack of tactical gameplay, Most of the time you will be right clicking to attack the enemy. graphics are cheesy, the videos appear as though they lag. The AI is un responsive. the Units have horrible stats. tanks cant take out buildings. this game is horrible, stay away from it.
Summary: crappy company of heroes ripoff...bought the game and was from the beginning very very disappointed...bad graphics, bad user interface, very bad balancing...the game does nothing, and i said it, NOTHING right...dont buy it, and dont listen to those who gave it a high rating...love the ratings on metacritics...half of them are developers i think when i read that...if you like a good ww2 rts, then play coh with the addons...this one sucks..
Summary: I love WW2 games. I am a veteran back to Panzer General. I can only say that buying this game is really good deal. Beautifull and excellent models, landscape and large battlefields. Better and more addictive than WIC. I hope in a sequel with more battlefields like Africa, Balkans, Russia and the Pacidic theatre. A whole WW2 campaign at least with Germany wouldn't hurt. Definitely one of the best games ever just like COH.
