Graviteam Tactics: Operation Star is a sequel to Achtung Panzer: Kharkov 1943. It’s an Eastern Front war game with solid graphics and sprawling battlefields that really emphasizes the scope of WWII tank combat.
Want to step into the role of a commander in the very heart of Kharkov’s defense? You'll have everything the officers had back then: tanks, guns, and fearless soldiers. The success of each opposing force hangs in the balance every day. Your decisions will determine who wins the Battle of Kharkov.

  • 8 operations for the Red Army and Wehrmacht.
  • More than 60 detailed units of the Soviet Union, Germany and UK, including Pz IV "Tiger", MkII "Matilda" and KV-1 with various modifications.
  • Huge realistic landscapes (over 260 sq km), reconstructed by the topographic maps and photo.
  • Quick battle anywhere in the operation areas.
  • Mod utility set and campaign editor.

  • High replayability and flexible AI. It chooses the best strategy based on behavior rather than a script. Scenarios can be replayed using different tactics, as though playing against a human opponent.
  • Real soldier behavior: every soldier has several basic parameters, such as experience level, fatigue, and morale, which affect their behavior and effectiveness.
  • Detailed recreation of weapons and realistic ballistics: bullets and projectiles follow accurate trajectories.
  • Comprehensive vehicle damage system: engine, suspension, weapons, and aiming mechanisms can all be damaged separately, affecting the combat capabilities of the vehicle.
  • Destructible environment: nearly everything can be blasted and destroyed, from ground terrain to houses and enemy defenses. All traces of previous battles remain on the battlefield.
  • Dynamic day, night and weather effects, all of which affect combat through terrain traversability, battlefield visibility, hidden force capabilities, and more, smoke screens, light flares e.t.c.
  • Military encyclopedia with 3D model viewer and detailed data on all units, describing their historical and in-game characteristics.

Class Game, a Dream for Strategy fans. You have to get clean but worth the Effort! AI-Way to Find-Soundscape and Atmosphere, all 1a. Graphics and Animations good enough to please the Eye. In this Game you really have the Feeling in the middle of it instead of just being there! For the Price (€6.99per), Strategy Fans who have to apply a little Interest to the Topic WW 2. Let me say again, it is worth it!

One of the best strategy games in a long Time. On the Positive side, no 0815 Standard battles are addressed. However, the Game is not exactly very friendly to Beginners, it is meant to say in the Beginning you are properly fisted. After a few Hours of recording time and a few dozen HOURS of YT Tutorials, you move the SPiel, but then in its elementary Controls and the First;), victorious Battles bought with high losses, give you a good Feeling. Only the Operation of the turn-based tactical Map could be made a little "simpler." And a Tutorial wouldn't be bad, either. All in all, a very good Game, with long-term Motivation. PS. All DLCs, except the High Res Texturepack, are worth their Money. Pps. I would like to see a Korea or Vietnam DLC

Wow, what would I have missed if I hadn't glimpsed it by Accident. I can only recommend this Game to anyone who likes WW2 Games with Aspirations. I know such an Atmo at most from Men of War, which is not close to the Depth of this Game here. Everything runs "Tum" And Tactical, which only underlines the "Simulation" even more. You maintain your Units, which you also desperately need. Any Mistake can be the last. No Mission start after that is like the other, which keeps it playing very differently. You never know where the Enemy stands. So nix with once play Surgery and forget. A lot of sweat is going on on alone until an Operation is completed. It should be Noted that you have to bring a lot of Learning Phase with you. There may be Frustration, but this will end up being rewarded. The easy-to-use editor is used for this. You create small or large Skirmishes And learn. The Manual Offers a good Explanation. Everything is in English, but you learn how to try it very quickly. On Youtube There are also useful Videos where you can pick something out. What else is left to say ... Pure Realism, with grandiose Unit graphics. You Really rarely see details like that. Even better than in Men of War. And that's coming across well. Sound is great and when the Ari hits the Forest, then there is a loose band of Brothers feeling (Ardennes). It Is a Pity that it only takes up the Russian Campaign (except for some DLCs). I would like To see much more. What could you not do there. OK, the Price is probably more likely to endure only in the Sale. Otherwise, it's already going to be happily. But everyone needs to know that for themselves. So don't respect the Game, but experience.
