Theatre of War 2: Kursk 1943, the historically accurate and detailed real-time tactical war game, welcomes military history fans to the battle which gave the Red Army the strategic initiative for the rest of the war.Read full description
Theatre of War 2 Kursk 1943 is a WWII strategy game that aims to recreate in detail one campaign from WWII instead of focusing on the entire conflict or an entire front like most WWII games do, making for a more focused and historically accurate campaign. Due to the focus of the game you will only be able to play as the USSR or the Germans. The campaign is enjoyable but for those who want more options the game also comes with a mission editor. You will set up your forces from different infantry, artillery, and tank types and engage in battles that are in real time but allow you to pause the game in order to issue orders to your troops. You will order your artillery to hit positions and your troops to assault and provide covering fire while taking enemy positions. Your soldiers are able to pick up better weapons from fallen enemies and allies. Being able to promote and rename units can make you more personally attached to your units. While I believe it has been surpassed by other games like Graviteam Tactics this is still a good buy for fans of WWII strategy games, and is going to be simpler than Graviteam Tactics for those that want an easier game to get into.
