Summary: This game had a big potential but the publishers didn't do a good job, and the developers could have done a little better on the graphics. Nevertheless, the game is still great, and you can download the free Add-on (a must!) the multiplayer experience is very good, it will make your heart beat and it will keep you hyper all the time, it's a shame that sales were not that good and the community is rather small, or many of them are playing through private IPs.
Summary: As of this date, I give it an 8. Shortly, new patch is coming out to modify some of the gameplay issues plus the editor is coming. This game should be a 10 once the new patch is available. If you've never played a Sudden Strike game, it is unique gameplay on large artistic maps and you control individually up to 2000 realistic military units. It's great fun for the armchair general!
Summary: Unit selection and control is a nightmare. IN the heat of battle it's next to impossible to control what really needs to be controlled. Units mix and merge, one arong turn and entire squads are wiped in nano-seconds. This may be realistic, but it doesn't make for fun gameplay, and as far as realism goes, other games do it better. Overall, could be a decent game, but a very ropey control system ruins the day for all but the most masochitic players.
Summary: A great disappointment. Sudden Strike 2 was so good, this is just too big. I let it run for an hour whilst I read the newspaper, as my intervention didn't seem to make much difference, just waves of my troops landing and being wiped out. Who cares who wins?
Conclusion: i have waited for the next addition to the family of sudden strikes, what a disappointment! they have set this game back years, CDV were the masters of this genre, what has happened?, i preferred to do the micro management of my forces i was in control, now it all seems a bit vague in operation, details are good however but not a patch on previous SS`s overall disappointed
Conclusion: i cant believe these other ratings people have given, this game may not have the graphics of call of duty 4, but this game is all about war and massive battles not first person shooter. first of all the missions are much better than ss2 and at the end of the day ss is all about little soldiers and BIG battles!!!!!!! and thats what you get. a good game- try the demo and see!!!!
no structure at all for explosions specialy those from arty

Conclusion: I played second DEMO of SS 3and I used to play with huge pleasure the old ones SS1 and 2 but in this one SS3 after very long wait the realism is a bit down. A sherman needs to shoot 5 ap shells to get a tank similar with pz1 i mean common 75cal shel shoot by a sherman is not so deadly BUT for a weak armor damn it is.
