A good old Classic, for 6 euro quite ok. Nice ww2 rts game. Good Pastime up part 4 release in august, and much better as so some nowadays, I just call lightning war 3 which is scrappy. Runs without any Problems on windows 10. You Can buy without hesitation. Great Game.

Sudden Strike war/has always been a Revelation for me as a great Strategy game fan. Absolutely realistic. Time, even at the lowest Difficulty, no errors and requires absolute Concentrazione. The third Part also remains true to itself in this Line. However, with Quirks that did not exist in the previous Parts. I can forgive the Devastation of the Battlefield Eg: Tank Wrecks, Corpses disappear after a few seconds and so the great Battlefield Atmosphere is no longer quite as strong as the previous ones. Also AI suspensions that appear from time to time are to be forgiven, because with dozens or hundreds of Soldiers who fight at the same time it hardly stands out if one to two times stop or get stuck somewhere. Unfortunately, there are also points that make the Game significantly worse off than Part 1 or 2. Unfortunately, frequent Crashes on Windows 10 64Bit are part of it, as well as Battles that go over 15-20 minutes. Ok... That the Battles go so long would actually be great, wouldn't the Fact that they only go so long because the Units just absolutely can't hit. In a Situation that just happened to me, I was about to take a Homestead consisting of three Houses. It was just a single enemy Shooter who defended the Farm wobbly. Unfortunately, my Units could not defeat this one. My Tanks and Soldiers shot in a beaten 10 Minutes at the Pixel Mate, but to no Avail. Only a Tank that rolled over the Man made it possible to conquer the Zeil. Little Things like this make Sudden Strike 3 a significantly worse Game, although it could be really good. Even as in the earlier Parts, it's still Fun to spend Hours Micromanaging. Recharge Vehicles and supply them with Ammunition. Replace troops And set up to Attack. Meanwhile, the Artillery let the enemy Positions take place and prefer to direct each Shot itself. All in all, Sudden Strike 3 is just for true Fans of the Series who can forgive many little Quirks and Mistakes. Atmospheric, Part 3 stays Mile-far behind its predecessors because, unfortunately, there is a lack of Graphic Detail. Here there is simply a lack of Attention to Detail in the Design. Pity Fireglow.
