Excellent old game , i bought on original release and have played many times. Based on the original Blitzkrieg series, a real treat as you must look after your army as replacements are not always at hand. The closer you get to your goal, the more desperate and stretched supplies become. Loved the operation 'winterstorm' rescue mission for the 6th army. Trying to punch through the soviet defences to rescue paulus' army with a patched together force was a challenge. Keep saving progress and enjoy this great 'blitzkrieg' title. No silly 'company of heroes' style unit building\/upgrading rubbish just fight with what your given. Classic. This game is worth $20, let alone the $1.24 I actually paid.
Probably the definitive WWII RTS. It's hard, but it's oh so satisfying when your plans work out, (or you snatch victory from the jaws of defeat). It's not about brute force. Well, it kinda is. Schwerpunkt. You concentrate forces on a narrow point in the line to achieve breakthrough. Stack armor columns in waves and maintain critical pressure on the main point of attack to achieve advantage by disrupting the enemy's rear. As Guderian said "Klotzen, nicht kleckern!" ("Kick, don't spatter them!")
If this can't be done, pull a Rommel and flank their butts, hit 'em hard on the side where only a few AT will be facing you, or if you can force into their rear and catch their guns from behind...
Otherwise, you're gonna have a bad time. The Red Army\/Wehrmacht is no play-thing (on normal) and they will wreck your glorious metal monsters if you give them the chance. Thousands will die on both sides before victory can be claimed. Do not rest, do not become complacent, commander. Your opponent will give no quarter. The Volga will run red with blood.
This is Stalingrad.. From all the 1C's isometric RTS games, Stalingrad is my favorite. Gameplay wise it's still bad (that's why we don't see these Blitzkrieg engine games anymore), but you can see that the devs put a lot of effort and love into this title, which makes it stand out from the rest of 1C games. It's worth a buy, especially for that price! http:\/\/steamcommunity.com\/sharedfiles\/filedetails\/?id=79260433... http:\/\/steamcommunity.com\/sharedfiles\/filedetails\/?id=792614018<\/a>. I say again. I want more Blitzkireg-based game!. Very nice. I got this game on sale a while ago. Never heard of this before, just wanted to try something with the WWII theme. It was a good surprise to find that the game was so large, with 2 big campaings: one for the nazis and one for the russians. Took me many hours to finish it.
I liked the RTS element and also liked that you can't produce units but you rather get reinforcements from time to time. The game is old but the graphics are still decent and the sound and music are quite adequate for a game like this. Also liked the cutscenes that are real footage from that conflict.
Found no bugs or crashes. Runs with no problem on win 7.
For a game that is usually pretty cheap it packs a lot of content. Lots of different units and many different scenarios with varied goals. Strategy and approach is relevant to win the game and it's rewarding as you get medals for performance. The game is IMO a little hidden gem and is very recommendable for those that like RTS and WWII stuff.. I'm happy to see Stalingrad finally made it to steam, but i forgot how useless the infantry was, i almost never got the use the damn soldiers, i kept yelling MOVE UP DAMMIT, but instead they decided to just lay down and not use any type of cover, even though i got my tanks to pound the entrenched areas, so i decided to just leave my infantry behind and just take all my tanks up and destroy the anti-tank guns in groups, the damn tanks are more useful against enemy infantry than infantry vs infantry.
But because this is getting a bit old, and it still works and the textures looks great.
Approved.. Very good game - recommended if you liked Blitzkrieg.. Not amazing, but certainly enjoyable and a solid addition to a stellar set of Blitzkrieg games. Didn't like the pseudo-hard-rock sound track though. Hit and run and flanking attacks work best. Easy to master but you can ramp up the difficulty as much as you need to find the right challenge. Also like other reviewers say, nice to see infantry be actually useful for a change.. If you're a veteran of Blitzkreig you'll know what to expect out of this game. However, Stalingrad improves in areas where Blitzkreig fell short. For example, infantry is much more useful. They don't die so easily and can hold their own in gunfights.
Also, your units can't shoot through solid objects like in Blitzkreig.
For those that haven't touched Blitzkreig, Staligrad works like this: In every mission, you're given goals to accomplish with a selected amount of units at your disposal. It's your job to use these forces in such a way that inflicts heavy damage on your enemy's forces while you're miminalizing damage to yours. All while completing your goals.
Sounds simple, right? But there's a catch. Units aren't replaceable when killed and ammo is scarce. That's right, you are left at the mercy of whatever reinforcements the game decides to give you and what supplies are available. More accurate realism as opposed to having supplies at the ready constantly in Blitzkreig.
So you best take your plan of attack\/defence very seriously if you expect to last long.
In terms of Story\/theme, Stalingrad is a WWII RTS based on historical facts on the invasion of Stalingrad during WWII. You can play as the Nazi's or the Red Army in two lengthy campaigns.
It's a good game that strives to improve upon where Blitzkrieg fell short and certainly will scratch that hardcore strategy gaming itch.
