Uprising44: The Silent Shadows combines third-person action play with real-time strategy. It is a unique combination of the two modes of play, and has an in-depth and interesting story-line which has not yet been used in WWII computer games – the greatest civilian Uprising against Nazi occupying forces – the Warsaw Uprising. It is a story of the Silent Shadows - forerunners of modern day special forces - paratroopers dropped behind enemy lines to organize resistance and use diversionary tactics in the fight against the forces of the Third Reich. An appropriate audio-visual setting combined with cover system (an excellent, proven method of game play), the story-line, and diverse settings ensure a dynamic and enjoyable game not only for players familiar with this type of theme, but also those merely wanting casual entertainment.
Play through an over-the-shoulder perspective gives a sense of reality to small groups of soldiers fighting in the tight confines of a city. You venture through buildings, cellars, streets, ruins and underground canals and take part in seemingly real skirmishes. You have available to use 16 types of weapons, depending on the tactics you choose. You can take cover, give orders to comrades, fight at close quarters, or at a distance - to get advantage over a superior number of the enemy.
You lead groups of uprisers that take part in heavy fighting on the streets of Warsaw. You as a leader will have to think strategically and improvise in quick changing situations of battle.
First independent computer game that is based on the Warsaw Uprising
An in-depth, inspiring story-line based on the greatest civilian uprising of WW II
A unique combination of TPP game play and real-time strategy.
If you expect a history lesson or anything historically accurate about Warsaw Uprising, then you should read a book, since you won't find anything here. The story in this game is boring to the point of downright insulting and has nothing to do with the uprising. Gameplay is just bad and the graphics from another decade or two. There are no redeeming qualities about this game at all, other than it is the first game about uprising and that's it. The only "good" thing about it is that the objectives are varied and won't get a chance to bore you to tears, because it is around 3-5 hours long. Overall, stay away from it, if you want WWII shooter, just pick up old CoD/Medal of Honor games. Not recommended.
