WarGame: European Escalation

Strategy Informer
4 June 2013
  • 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

  • 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

This excellent wargame/real-time strategy hybrid embodies the best of both worlds while destroying ours in a hypothetical Cold War-goes-hot setting.

  • 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

1 March 2012
  • 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...

31 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Сложные тактические стратегии – жанр, пусть и не вымирающий, но все же не самый популярный среди подавляющего числа игроков. За ними невозможно расслабиться вечерком и за примитивным планом «собрать ресурсы – обустроить базу – подавить врага численным превосходством», в отличие от Starcraft 2 ,...

  • Excerpt: Надеемся, вы еще помните стратегию под названием R.U.S.E. ? Почти два года назад студия Eugen Systems довольно неплохо отожгла на виртуальных полях Второй мировой. Сегодня этот же разработчик предлагает нам совершенно иной театр военных действий. Возможен ли качественный гибрид оригинальной R.U.S.E.
