I remember that the "O" said he enjoyed playing "Blitzkrieg" (just like me)

After the big disappointment of Blitzkrieg 2 , ive now read that the "back to roots" successor "Frontline : Fields of Thunder" is pretty good again and very much like the first Blitzkrieg.

Is that true ? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif Should i buy it ?

It doesn't get a great review on Gamespot (I usually trust their opinion):

http://uk.gamespot.com/pc/strategy/frontlinekursk/revie...abs&tag=tabs;reviews (http://uk.gamespot.com/pc/strategy/frontlinekursk/review.html?om_act=convert&om_clk=tabs&tag=tabs;reviews)

There is also a demo to download... Maybe try that before buying?

Or try Company of Heroes, if you haven't already? The campaign is great, but the PC vs. player skirmish maps are even better (you can choose to be German army and play with Nerbelwerfers, Tiger aces and 88mm AT guns http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif).

Stupid me. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif Could have thought of looking for a demo by myself. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif


Also,.. There a several addons for Blitzkrieg , 3 official and several unofficial ones. Can anyone give recommendations ?

I already own "Burning Horizon"

I forget which add-on I have. I'll have to figure out which one I have after I head back to the "Sleep Bunker" tonight

I do enjoy the blitzkrieg series, but I've been taking a break from RTS...It can be too stressful sometimes...

Yesterday i look for infos on Blitzkrieg Addons and today ,as i buy me a newspaper, is see this gaming magazine :


Three Addons for Blitzkrieg on its DVD http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

I already have Burning Horizon which focuses on the campaign of the Afrikakorps.

Rolling Thunder is about Patton's campaign and i know nothing about Iron Division yet http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/typing.gif

I don't have any of those...I have a completely different add-on. Again, I'll have to see which one it is.

It is essentially a few more campaigns, but not specific,

Just played "Rolling Thunder" http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/typing.gif

Very nice http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

You play the most important battles of Patton's career in ww2, starting with Operation "Torch".


There is another official Addon called "Green Devils" available

I think i gonna order that one.

Just 15 Euros http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I have to agree with VG with this game - I get more fun out of this game playing the Germans - their toys are so much more fun to play with - and I just love their comments they come out with when you click on each different unit group http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Frontline: fields of thunder - for me the game is very good. I play it recently, if you played Blitzkrieg and have interest in WW2 panzers you gonna like this game. Most reviews were very positive, here are three of them, they grasp what this game is about:

if i can give you an advise check out the demo you won't be disappointed http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
