A OK game

I was hoping more when i bought this game. The graphics on this game is the same as the original one. the path finding of units is horrible plus the horrible controls of commanding your army. The sound of the game is somewhat decent, the gun shots and tank sounds are good, but then the voice acting 1C has given to their game are not something I am proud of. Basically the downfalls of this game is the lack of controls, the bad voice acting, and the same graphics as the original theater of war. I would not recommend this game to any of my friends.


A solid entry in the series

As an avid strategy gamer, I can't recommend the Theatre of War series enough. You're always guaranteed good gameplay, fantastic graphics, and deep yet intuitive controls. The portion of World War 2 that took place in Africa is sadly not much covered by the mainstream titles, and as such this game screams originality. The AI is vastly improved, and you'll no longer have the occasional soldier or vehicle running laps in a circle for no apparent reason. Your guys feel much more alive this time around, and work together to conserve ammo and seek the best possible cover. Vehicles are very well-animated, and explosions look great - even folks not that into strategy titles will find something to like here. The included expansion pack is more of the same, and just makes the game that much more complete. The game is bug-free from what I've seen, and having piles of units on screen at once has never caused me any lag or stuttering. Unit control is easy, and the UI is simple but intuitive.

Don't expect much difference from the original game, but that's quite logical of course, as this is an expansion. If you loved theatre of war 2, then you simply have to buy this expansion. It brings over 50 extra vehicles, 30 extra buildings en even 15 missions... So just definitely buy this if you're a fan of theatre of war, and if you're not, you shouldn't, as this is still the same game.
