War In The East 2 Review

Back In The U.S.S.R.


HIGH A richly detailed operational WW2 strategy that plays smoothly for wargame vets.

LOW The lack of handholding can be overwhelming for newcomers.

WTF Why are the aerial operations so fussy if the AI automation is turned off?


Enlisted Preview

Enlisted is a bold attempt at tackling a bloated genre. The World War II shooter has more entries than I can count, but even bolder than trying to crack this style is that it’s also entering the similarly-crowded online-only field.


Hell Let Loose Preview

My first foray into first-person shooters with a heavy focus on strategy and mechanics began with the closed beta of Hell Let Loose, a World War II-era shooter developed by Black Matter and published by Team 17. Their project focuses more on the tactical and realistic aspects of firing a gun, more similar in scope to ARMA 3 and America’s Army than to something like Call of Duty.


Valkyria Chronicles 4 Review

Just When You Thought It Was Safe To Invade Gallia…

HIGH Climbing to the top of a ruin to fire a rocket into an enemy’s weak point.
LOW Losing that damn wounded sniper mission over and over again.
WTF How the Battleship’s engine gets fixed…


Battlefield V Preview

Battlefield is returning to where it all started. The original Battlefield 1942 was set in WWII. Now, 16 years later, Battlefield V is again heading back to the second world war. While BFV had an alpha earlier this year on PC, this latest open beta is going to be the first time most fans will be able to finally get their hands on it.


Bomber Crew Review

How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb

HIGH Landing beaten and bloodied after a successful mission.

LOW Not figuring out how to apply first aid in time.

WTF Those pigeon sounds on the title screen.


Attentat 1942 Review

 Looking Back At Right Now

HIGH The gut-wrenching journeys of so many people.

LOW Lack of direction regarding the player’s goal.

WTF Inappropriate English subs like “Wow, that’s crazy!” when responding to horrible tragedy.
