Wargame: European Escalation

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Growing up during the dawn of PC strategy games, playing everything from Dune II and Command & Conquer to Panzer General , took its toll on my teenage years. History classes only became worth paying attention to when it concerned old battles and famous generals, and I even had a period where I was...

WarGame: European Escalation

Strategy Informer

  • Conclusion: Some people liked R.U.S.E. , some people didn’t. I don’t mind admitting I was probably a little harsh on it when its turn came. Wargame: European Escalation however is definitely a better game – Eugen has taken everything they’ve learned and made a better, more engaging product that’s more focused...

Wargame: European Escalation Review

True PC gaming
22 May 2012
  • Summary: This game is brilliant. Wargame: European Escalation is probably one of the more complicated RTSs I have ever played. Even after a total of 84 hours of in-game time, I still haven’t figured out all the different factors that play into the way a unit performs.

Cold War hots up.

Game Debate
17 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Do you like Cold War-era military hardware? And when I say ‘like’, I don’t just mean ‘sure, I saw Rambo III and that was pretty cool’. It’s more like this: Can you name three different type of Warsaw Pact artillery pieces and their comparative merits?
  • Pros: Realistic scenery, Attention to detail
  • Cons: Could use scenic variety

  • Summary: If the best wargames and best real-time strategy games were selectively bred over several generations, the result would be Wargame: European Escalation, an "easy to learn yet difficult to master" wargame that plays out in real time.
  • Pros: Impressive mixture of wargame and RTS, Intuitive interface and strategic view make for happy armchair generals, Attractive killing fields, Hundreds of unique units, Definitively answers "How many Leopard 1A5s are needed to kill 24 T-62s?"
  • Cons: Uninspired unit chatter, Lacks opportunities for friendly "comp stomps", Insufficient map diversity

Volltreffer oder Blindgänger?

Gameswelt
9 March 2015
  • Excerpt: Langsam, aber sicher verschwinden die Spuren des in die Jahre gekommenen Klassenprimus World in Conflict im Sand. Der Titel hatte bei uns im Test eine glatte 90er-Wertung abgeräumt und kann mittlerweile mit seinen fünf Jahren getrost als Klassiker bezeichnet werden.
  • Pros: unverbrauchtes Szenario …, klasse Kartenübersicht, realistisches Ressourcen-Management, tolle Mehrspielerpartien
  • Cons: … das langweilig präsentiert wird, diverse Clipping-Fehler, mangelhafte KI, umständliche Menüführung, angestaubte Grafik, triste Landschaften

  • Conclusion: Så till slut, även om spelet inte innehåller så mycket mikromanagement som man kanske förväntar sig av en sådan här titel, så ser vi inte det som något negativt. Spelet kan definitivt tilltala både nya och gamla fans av genren, just för att det är lätt att komma in i samtidigt som det kräver mer av...
  • Pros: • Stor skala • Hundratals olika enheter • Imponerande presentation • Väl fungerande UI
