I've been loving SH3 and Il2 Sturmovik for some time now. I like SH4 quite a bit but I have trouble getting into the pacific theatre I think. I much prefer europe. Are there any other WW2 games of that type? Even if not sims but strategy or something?

Thanks http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I've always been a big fan of the Close Combat series. The third one was the Russian front and was the best IMHO.

If your looking at a really great WWII content go to http://www.battlefront.com/ it's like fish in a barrel there, you can't miss. Check out the combat mission series.

Faces of War FTW!!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Such an excellent game! I highly recommend it or atleast to try it out cause it's pure awesomeness and realistic at same time (ballistics **** and inventories for each and every soldier or vehicle, driveable planes! and uhh... hmm nvm) Well very fun and realistitc especially MP wich is the best part! Obviously the ballistics system is very good IMHO as you can see a Koenigstiger or Tiger II w/e destroy a sherman in one hit and stuff... also you can knock the tracks off and damage the turret and it gets stuck or damage the main gun and sometimes you can blow out the turret completely and still drive the tank around turretless!! really funny lol and well nothing much really. very good game just look at my xfire thing in my sig... it says it all!

You might wanna check out this forum (http://www.digitalmindsoft.eu/forums/index.php) also

P.S. Forgot to mention, there are FULLY destructible environments! you can burn down houses or blow them to pieces with mortars and arty. Also a cool feature... Direct Control. You can control your troops or tanks yourself like a FPS but with a RTS view.

BTW this game is real time strategy.

When I read that, I thought immediately of Telly Savalas in "Battle of the Bulge" standing up in the hole where his turret used to be, holding a Browning .30 cal MG and shouting, "Ambleve!"

SP:WAW is good strategy game. And free... uses the old steel panthers engine. You have to see it to believe it.

Panzer General 3 (Scorched Earth / Assault) this series is good too. Again its turn based strategy. (PG3 I believe is now owned/sold by UBI as well)

To play the game at full potential or how it was meant to be...
D/L the latest patch 1.04.1 and a hotfix 1.04.1a - That way the game is far more enjoyable... Also lots of changes and additions. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Company of heros is very good.
And add another vote for Red orchestra, massive online MP game, some of the servers are 50 people.
If your big on statergy then the combat mission series would be worth a look.
