Eric Young’s Squad Assault: West Front™ Goes Gold

Published on October 07, 2003

For those who prefer traditional turn-oriented play, a sixty second auto-pause feature for order entry and battlefield assessment allows for a more thoughtful game. A 2D overhead map view with order entry is also available for those who prefer to see the battle from above.

Once the battle starts, the virtual soldiers you command respond with real reactions to the combat situations around them. The psychological modeling combines with unsurpassed detail in terrain, weather, weapons, vehicles, and armor penetration to make Squad Assault: West Front a riveting recreation of World War II tactical combat.

Multi-player options for head to head play via TCP/IP / LAN are included.

The game features both historical and hypothetical scenarios and includes detailed maps from actual topographical data to create an even more realistic immersive World War II 3-D environment.
