Theatre of War 2: Africa 1943 covers the events of 1943 in Tunisia, North Africa. Recovering from their losses after the crushing defeat and subsequent retreat after the Second Battle of El-Alamein, the German Afrika Korps - reinforced and now supported by the Italian Army - prepare once more to put steel against steel with the Allies. The Axis forces, under the command of the legendary General Erwin Rommel, have an all too brief opportunity to seize victory from the clutches of their earlier failures. Players will lead Rommel’s Afrika Korps in their last full-scale military campaign and command the English and American armies as they try to push the Axis forces out of Africa once and for all.

Theatre of War 2: Africa 1943 reviews and comments

Tactical simulation game based on World War II. Graphic design not too outdated, sympathetic gameplay, the presence of air support in Visual makes the game appealing. CERTE is not a military Simulator, but it still gives to the level of realism. To group with graviteam tactics and combat mission. The difference with combat mission is at the level of the graphics, the passage of Orde (combat mission is more complete, example for the reverse order, orientation of the unit, etc...), but unlike CM, theatre of war leaves a share of autonomy to the units, and it is possible to see what they have around them microfibers to the three camera modes which one of the modes is the view in the third person, the other simulates the view of the unit (what it sees in its personal situation) and the main, the tactical view overall (at the map level). No doubt, this game is made only for those who love the serious WarGames.

I Have to say that the game I difficult a little at first but nothing that with practice is not aregle. The best Game of simulation of the Second World War and go the pros and cons. Pros-Balisticas of the game excellent and realistic-Count the shrapnel of the weapons what I was sincerely surprised the maps are pretty good for a game of the 2009 as well as the graphics a variety of units medium long for the 3 main factions-Other Thing that I have to clarify the maps are giant if you go with your Panzer III happy of life and I fell a shot of obus of 105mm to 1 meter of the caterpillar this will break and leave the tank Inmovilisado and you can not repair unlike men of war that It was the most realistic game for me until now-the infantry has a moral system like that there is a company of British soldiers patrolling and they are ambushed by a MG 34 more than half of the squadron dies the remainder runs out but they return in a future Cons-The Game personally this bad optimized for computers now surprisingly not me to failed with Windows 10-The game in my opinion after certain hours Abuerre but that is something of my opinion rating 100/100

Strengths:-immersion-the theatre of operation-the ability to recover weapons and vehicles-the soldier-wide experience system (each fighter to its characteristics)-the variety of weapons offers extensive tactical choices-the challenge-the simulation approach with the "first person" view-the towing of the artillery-the Encyclopaedia (a good presentation of vehicles and troops)-the mission editor weaknesses; -In view "first person" it would have been advisable to have a zoom function or approach glasses (the recognition without glasses?) which would also have strengthened the simulation-morale of the troops is present but there are gaps; the opponent flees but never goes... no prisoners, it is sometimes a useless massacre. -End of mission sometimes absurd where one must find the last hidden tank to finish for example-summary interface, it lacks a little music and archive pictures or videos especially during the campaigns conclusion: the basis of the game is actually great pity that the moral factor is incomplete. That said the battles are very stakeholder and long-winded. This evaluation is for the solo mode.
