Experience the Blitz as a Prussian officer, defend your home
country as a Russian tank commander, or march right through
to Berlin as an allied commander - three dynamic European
campaigns await you as well as two separate North African
Elite Action: Gold Edition bundles
together Panzer Elite Action: Fields of Glory with
the add-on Panzer Elite Action: Dunes of War.
Elite Action: Gold Edition is a 3D tank simulator. While
this game seems, on first appearances, to be a dream come
true for war enthusiasts, allowing you to take charge of a
tank and roll over the enemy, or the scenery, the novelty
of crashing through things and shooting at anything you see
soon wears off. As wave after wave of enemy attack you it
starts to get a little too repetitive a little too quickly.
of Glory follows the story of three tank commanders and
their crew. The German commander, pumped by the fast success
in Poland and France, moves on to the Eastern Front and the
brink of victory with the taking of Stalingrad. We meet the
Russian commander in the desperate straits as he helps defend
Stalingrad, and follow him as the tide turns against the Germans
and he joins the massive tank battle of Kursk. The American
commander enters the war on the Normandy Beachhead on D-Day.
After the struggle for the Bocage, he defends the German outbreak
at the the Battle of the Bulge, and then drives on to the
victorious crossing of the Rhine.
of War follows the story of two tank commanders and their
crew through their harrowing North Africa battle campaigns.
The German commander, called in to help the Italian army,
moves from the European theatre to the dunes of the Sahara.
The American commander enters the war on the African beaches
of the Mediterranean.
graphics are not fantastic, but detailed enough, and the action
comes thick and fast with heaps of things to destroy - if
the mood takes you. It's like an old school arcade game but
with souped up graphics.
main downside is that blowing things up really does get very
old very quickly (believe it or not) and it's not long before
you start to look for something a little more interesting.
in short bursts, but not a game that you'll want to go back
to very often. Having said that, as you get two games for
£20 it's not a bad deal - just don't expect to be playing
for weeks and weeks and you won't feel cheated.
