From: Cologne, Germany
Gamershall-Review in German is done. BftB got a score of 88/100 and a Silver Award.
Have fun by translating my conclusion.
Hey Lützow, why would a game like BFTB require a "USK 18" rating?
There's no "gore", violence, explicit language etc. in there. :P
Good thing you included a hint that ppl need a decent level of English in order to be able to delve into the manual, due to the fact that there's no German GUI/manual. Matrix should do something about it.
Btw, describing the weather change (when the snow kicks in) and the different map gfx would have been an informative addition. Also, on page 3, you make it sound like orders could only be issued when the game is paused (which is not the case, as you should know):
".... sondern erteilt im Pausenmodus Befehle an Batallions- oder Regiments-Hauptquartiere, ..... "
The second half of the sentence also gives the reader the impression, that you can only issue orders to Bns or Rgts., even though you can control (and micromanage) each and every unit, from a platoon (if present in the scenario) up to an Army/Corps HQ, if you want. You could then add that the usual (and recommended) command level would be the Rgt. or the Bn. Imho, the AI does best on the Rgt. level, but that may have changed in BFTB to some extent, I don't know.
