‘Tis the season to be inundated with World War II real-time strategy games. The most recent is this: the dusty North African sequel to the original Theatre of War, and what the creators claim is the “most realistic WWII game ever”. So realistic it’ll leave sand in your tea, or something. The 786mb demo features a tutorial level and what is apparently a single level from the US campaign, “The Battle of Sidi Bou Zid”. I’ve not had a chance to play it yet, so perhaps someone who has will kindly share their thoughts on it below.
The full game is out in the 24th of April, and there’s a whole bunch of money-saving pre-order shenanigans going on over at there developer’s online publishing portal here.
