Oh my, I just love alternate histories, and this game includes one that I haven't ever seen mentioned. This real time strategy game is set in a word in which Adolf Hitler is killed in an assassination, and so Germany can make a pact with Japan in which they arrange to launch and assault on America. How can you not love this idea? You can play this history in a game which features both a single player campaign of a dozen of misssions, or a great multiplayer mode with up to four players on one map. You will get a wide choice of units, which can additionally be upgraded for an even wider choice of options. You can lead one of nine nations, including such historically minor combatants as Czechoslovakia. What more could you ask for if you want an alternate WW2 game?
