Patton The Head: Legends Of War

Legends of War has a peculiar trailer. At just over thirty seconds long, I hoped it would be a video of a computer-generated General Patton flexing and chewing bullets. 'LEGEND OF WAR', the title would be written in explosions, and then Old Blood and Guts would drive a tank out of the screen and start doing wheelies all around my flat. Instead, the video denigrates the machines of war, as shell casings tumble from the sky, flaccid and spent. Then, after showing two tanks having a fight, the trailer celebrates the men of war as rigid bullets spurt from side to side. Patton is the player character in Legends of War (you can level him up!), which combines "high-level strategic management (with RPG elements) and a tactical turn-based mode". From what I can gather it's a port of a PSP game.

The reviews for the PSP release were strong but I'll admit I don't know enough about the quality and availability of strategy games on the system. In a drought, people are pleased by the most brackish water. Here, direct from the press release, is the feature list.

  • 4 Operations, 21 missions, 44 battlefield maps & 36 different types of unit
  • Varied mission types, including attack, infiltration, defence, escort and sabotage.
  • Unique combination of 2 strategy game mechanics: high-level strategic management and turn-based tactics.
  • 44 different battlefield maps consisting of 3 different environments: countryside, snow and cities.
  • 36 different types of units: command infantry, armoured vehicles and aircrafts, special units (including snipers, elite forces and commandos) fighters and bombers.
  • Go Head-to-Head with the Hotseat multiplayer mode.
