Germany at War Barbarossa 1941
« on: November 22, 2016, 05:10:05 PM »
Hi ya all!  :)

Thought I would fill you in on this one as I do play it...

Germany at War Barbarossa 1941 is your tipical strategy hex game but with a bit more of a twist to it, and in my opinion nicer then most.  Similar to Panzer Corps but with added flavour. At itīs price itīs worth trying out. Thereīs a demo so nothing to lose (demo seems dead).  Itīs not complicated to play and for me itīs worth it if you like wargames without to much complexity. Plenty of gameplay.  It has been updated in the past with new content so itīs not lost in vaporware!

On June 22, 1941, the largest land campaign in history began, as three German Army Groups advanced into the Soviet Union.  Operation Barbarossa was underway and the German war machine was now locked in a struggle which would change the course of World War II.
Germany At War: Operation Barbarossa 1941 is an elegant turn-based design, inspired by classics such as Panzer General, but with more of a historical focus.  You command the German forces through a branching historical campaign covering the entire 1941 campaign as well as part of the 1942 campaign.  Dozens of scenarios stretch from the Soviet border all the way to Archangel and towards Astrakhan, the original military goals of Operation Barbarossa.  Step into a wargame where your performance will rewrite history, through an addictive combination of compelling gameplay, realistic events and challenging battles.
Additional stand-alone scenarios cover other famous battles and are ideal for head to head play through the integrated PBEM++ system.  Your forces follow you through the campaign, earning historical upgrades as you progress and new equipment becomes available on a historical schedule.  Units and maps are represented at realistic scales and the combat, movement and terrain systems are all based on real capabilities.

Aimed at all levels, from those who have never played a wargame before to those who know the history of World War II in detail, this is an entertaining and challenging game of combined arms strategy.

Glad your liking it Ruski, enjoy!

I will be posting new gameplays soon.

At a different level, you might like John Tillerīs Campaign Series, or Campaign Series Middle East both on sale at Matrix too.  I have them both and like the middle east better for itīs great 2D view and options. Both have mods and mod enabler (JSGME) included. Tons of mission for the price!

Downloaded the demo and the map was black. Looking at the forum, it seems like a lot of people experience that issue with windows 10
