Summary: Played this years ago and if you love xcom/jagged alliance/fallout tactics, you will love this game! Its more of a challenge than modern games so be prepared! Also this classic game just got the greenlight and has been released on steam, now a new generation of gamers can enjoy this classic!
Summary: This game is Jagged Alliance on steroids. Unfortunately in 2012 its next to impossible to find a copy of it anymore and the publisher seems to be gone from the web?. Also you will have trouble trying to install in on anything other than Windows XP (though with effort I did get it to work on Vista). Anyway I loved it and played it right through to the end about 3 times (thats like 3 months of after work gametime). My copy is like gold, no I will not sell it to you.
Summary: Silent Storm is one of the best turn based strategy games so far - even though it was release 7 years ago, it's still great to play! I would really like to see S2 2.0 released, one of my favorite games so far!
Summary: A great tactical combat game. The organic character development is great, and the destructive environments add a great deal to the combats. A few small complaints - lack of multiplayer, short campaign. My biggest complaint came from the "panzerkleins" found at the end of the story - not only do they take from the realism of the game, they add a clumsiness not inherent in the combat using only infantry.
Summary: Like many have said before me, this IS a great game. There simply isn't enough squad-based tactical strategy games. However, this game should be compared to Fallout BOS instead of Jagged Alliance although JA is an easier game to reference to. There is no economic system in Silent Storm like there was in JA. Plus the squad selection, weapon selection and "home-base" are almostidentical to Fallout BOS.
Summary: I am an old-school game player since the 70s. I HIGHLY recommend this game. The physics model, the turn based gameplay, and the tactical depth make it a must have! The game IS short on story and "being fleshed out" but is still worth every dime in today's market of twitch games. While it falls short of being the next X-com or Jagged Alliance, it will more than satisfy if you enjoy deep tactical level warfare in an environment that is destructible.
Summary: Only faults of silent storm is hardware optimisation and few problems with path settings all other things are great expecaly destroyable soroundings everybody who loves turn based strategies should take it and wont regret. Brilliant!!!
Summary: Command a small squad of five other specialists (sniper, medic, grenadier, engineer, soldier or scout) in various World War II missions. Generally, turn-based combat games turned me off, with meticulous unit placement and dull graphics. Silent Storm just changed the face of turn-based tactical games forever. From the extensive custom character creation screen, to the totally destructable environments, I'm loving this game.
Summary: Silent Storm is in my eyes an amazing game, it switches up the typical WWII genre but this coming from an x-com fan isn't a surprise. Turn based game + sniper = happy. The real meat on this game is the stats system, players love improving their characters and creating specialists. For me my main character was always a sniper so I'd spend his action points (doesn't apply when not in combat) getting him into a position where he can cover the rest of his squad, i would then...
Pros: A twist on WWII, a great genre, lovely sound.
Cons: Gets a little harder later on, especially with the introduction of suits.
