Steel Division – Superb

Written by Phil on . Posted in Battle

I purchased Steel Division a few days ago. I think it’s superb. I have all the Wargame franchise and found them to be too quick and just another click fest but there is more to them than that I know.

Steel Division plays differently to these earlier games and one of the best features for me is “Bullet Time” which of course, slows it all down and lets you think and manage the battlefield. Tactics really work. You have to use your recon and support your tanks with infantry and artillery. You can just rush in but this never works, you just get torn apart. I think it looks great and I love the control system.

The one thing it has done for is to go back to the original Wargame European Escalation. I can now do well in that particular game because the basics are taught well in Steel Divisions tutorials and I simply carry it over.

I have started the campaign which is engrossing and you are forced to take your time and really consider your moves which is exactly what I am looking for in these type of games.

The dream would be to have the concept of a game like Command Ops executed with the graphical layout and controls of Steel Division.

I can only dream.
