    Wargame: European Escalation is Out?

    I just noticed that this game is available on Steam! I'm going to pick up a copy as soon as I have time to play it, but has anybody beat me to it? I haven't heard anything about it on my usual strategy game blogs. But the developer, Eugen, made my favorite RTS of all time - Act of War and it's expansion - plus RUSE, which a lot of people around really seemed to enjoy, and I had a bit of fun with.

    So if you've got W:EE, what do you think of it so far?

    I really need a demo of this. Really curious about it, with it being the cold war, and the slightly more realistic than usual focus. Hope there will be one soon...

    It's a really good game. Singleplayer is remarkably solid, too - the first couple of missions fill the tutorial role, but everything from there on is a serious challenge. It's kinda like a blend of RUSE and Combat Mission with a bit of World In Conflict. Little to no micromanagement, aside from occasionally telling supply trucks to go back to refill. It's all about large-scale fighting.

    I'd be playing it a lot more if I had more time.

    The game is wonderful! I have been playing it since release. Very little unit micro-management and a lot of emphasize on getting the right units to fight together. The amount of units and the whole deck building can be a bit overwhelming at times, but after a couple of games you'll get the hang of it. Also: the singleplayer is quite fun and a good way to learn about the different units and their uses. I never played RUSE, but am a big fan of Men of War - this seems to be MoW on a slightly larger scale...

    Awesome, thanks for the opinions, guys - I'll definitely be getting it this weekend. I'm especially glad to hear the single player is good, as I didn't hear anything about that during the development and a lot of the marketing focused on multiplayer.

    We've got a thread over in social gaming, if you want to play multiplayer with other RPS-ers. :3 -- > http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/foru...hread.php?3151

    I, for one, am a huge fan.

    Ohh, good thing I didn't do what I was just about to do and suggest a social group then!
