Wargame: AirLand Battle

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: It took a truly horrific defeat for me to knuckle down and attempt to break through Wargame: AirLand Battle 's tough, uncaring exterior. I'd tossed aside the campaign, had one skirmish match under my belt, and I dived head-first into a 10 vs.

A World Wrought with Devastation

Game Debate
10 July 2013
  • Excerpt: What happens someone’s rushed at by 3 guys and he’s out of bullets? Does he neatly throw the empty revolver at them, grab the ingenuous 14 year-old who’s accompanying him and run for their lives? Ducking behind cover, nestled together while the little child quivers in terror and anxiety?
  • Pros: Well Written, Engaging Plot, Beautiful Landscapes
  • Cons: Checkpoints, Button Mashing, Somewhat Predictable

  • Summary: “Wargame: AirLand Battle” (WALB) is a game that raises a lot of questions.  What is going on here?  Why am I playing a game about the Warsaw Pact fighting NATO?  How am I going to figure out how to deal with 828 different units?  Why do I keep losing?

  • Summary: Whoa. Apologies to Keanu Reeves, but that's exactly the sort of stunned reaction provoked by Wargame: AirLand Battle. This supersize real-time strategizer set during a Cold War-era WWIII is one of those all-in games that practically punches you in the face with its complexity when you fire it up for...

Strategy Informer
12 June 2013
  • Conclusion: Wargame: AirLand Battle’s biggest challenge though would be the justification of a brand-new title so soon after the last one’s release. To be fair to Eugene, they’ve supported European Escalation fantastically over the past year, and there’s no reason to doubt they’ll do the same for AirLand Battle...

Wargame: AirLand Battle

IGN
5 June 2013
  • Conclusion: Since Command and Conquer popularized the genre many moons ago, RTS has largely been about erecting little buildings that impossibly spawn an infinite stream of soldiers. Such magical people factories, and their accompanying genre tropes, start to look pretty silly after experiencing Wargame:...
  • Pros: Hundreds of faithfully recreated military units, Each of the many statistics is relevant, Believable, if somewhat plain visuals
  • Cons: Campaign is a wasted opportunity
