Advanced Tactics: World War II

Product Info

Advanced Tactics is a versatile turn-based strategy system that gives gamers the chance to wage almost any battle in any time period. The first module in this series is Advanced Tactics: World War II, which allows gamers to hop into a Panzer and storm across Europe. Complete with a streamlined interface and an addicting style of gameplay, Advanced Tactics offers a unique and infinitely replayable experience for any strategy fan.  Depending on the scenario, you can decide what your towns should produce, which HQs receive reinforcements, how your chain of command is formed, what sort of troop and equipment mix you put in each unit, if you use air, land, or sea strategies or maybe even call in the paratroopers – the possibilities are endless! Almost any type of strategy or tactic can be used effectively in Advanced Tactics. 


To round out Advanced Tactic’s replayability, it also features a powerful scenario editor that allows gamers to recreate their favorite historical scenarios or simple fabricate their own fictional conflicts. World War 2 buffs will enjoy Advanced Tactics’ numerous scenarios from the period like: Gothic Line, Afrika Korps, the Russian Front, Endsieg, and more.  Furthermore, for players with only the time to play and not create their own scenarios there is a powerful and easy-to-use random scneario generator that will keep gameplay fresh with minimum user input to create new missions and campaigns.
