About

Wargame: European Escalation is a real-time strategy game developed by Eugen Systems.

Setting

The game takes place during the end of the Cold War and explores the face off of NATO and the countries of the Warsaw Pact. More than 300 units of eight countries are present in the game.

Gameplay

The singleplayer mode features four campaigns (One for the FRG and the U.S. and two for the USSR). Each campaign is a hypothetical war scenario between the NATO and Eastern forces in Central Europe.

There is no unit building present in the game. Every arriving reinforcement is paid for using deployment points, which are accumulated for control over key areas. Reinforcements are not unlimited, as the amount of purchasable units is limited. Units earn experience on the battlefield and if they survive until the end of the mission, they can be used on the next level of the campaign.

Units have a set of stats: experience, health, psyche, ammo count, and accuracy. The units psyche depends on the state of the battle with the enemy forces. If a unit suffers a panic attack, it's efficiency goes way down. Vehicles can be upgraded. Some of the units are only present in the game's multiplayer mode. Initially, the player has access to a little number of the game's units. New units are purchasable for the command stars that are awarded both in single and multiplayer modes. The players can get 840 stars overall.

Wargame: European Escalation reviews and comments

In itself, it's not bad. But despite a High-quality PC I have problems playing it. It crashes in the middle of the Game and you land on the Desktop. After that, team can't even finish without Restarting the PC. Just around ... A good Game who likes C & C with one like me my acute Situation =) The Start is a bit bumpy at the Beginning, but once you're in it makes it real laune.

Wargame: European Escalation is a very good Strategy game. Nothing special From the Graphic point of view, but all Units are Logically structured. This means, for example, tanks, open Fires at great Distances and with the Artillery you can break through almost the entire Battlefield. The Missions are very clusive and it can take some Time and new attempts until they have been Successfully completed.

Great Real-time Strategy started with RUSE and has stretched across the Parts of the Wargame series to Wargame red dragon. Every Wargame game has its own feeling of playing and that's why every Wargame game is worth buying! If you don't like it, you can still give it back. European Escalation is not like the Successor Airland Battle, nor like the current Part Red Dragon! Each Part of the Series is good in its own Unique way and wise. NATO vs. Warsaw Pact! Wargame European Escalation shows the Outbreak of the Cold War in the 70s and 80s! More than 350 Units from 4 Nations each On 2 Pages! The qualitative NATO against the quantitative Waschau Pact. The Units are usually realistically displayed and look graphically just as great as the Surroundings and Battlefields. The Units range from Logistical Units such as Command units and Military Trucks to combat And shooter and Hunting Tanks, anti-aircraft gun tanks and anti-missile systems and Infantry To Howitzers, Mortars and Rocket Artillery Systems! For each Task, there is the right Unit that adheres strictly to Reality in Terms of performance Values. The Story is fine and you are practically forced to play it because otherwise you can't stand in Multiplayer! The Multiplayer, however, is the Game's main game modes! However, you should look for a few People to play because only a few People still play the Multiplayer! But for two it's also Fun to play against each other or the AI (which on heavy Apparently has satellite Reconnaissance:P)! Or you're Lucky and you meet another Player! Clear purchase recommendation for what I Think is the best War real-time strategy series! < > seems the Game has awoken from its Sleeping Beauty Sleep! The Number of People in the multiplayer has increased significantly! You almost always find people to play a Game!
