Blitzkrieg presents the battlefields of WWII and allows players to control Allied, Nazi, or Soviet troops. Over 200 units -- trains, planes, tanks, artillery, and infantry -- and 250 buildings are available. Damage, unit availability, movement, accuracy, and construction are based on historical records. Gameplay follows simulation guidelines whenever possible, though tedious maneuvers have been eliminated.
Three campaigns include environments like the Ukraine and Africa. Players have the option of completing side-missions, which grant promotions, more troops, and better equipment, or avoiding side-missions for a greater challenge. A campaign editor allows players to construct customized missions, and multiplayer options include Capture the Flag, Deathmatch, and Supremacy-style games. ~ All Game Guide
