Sudden Strike

released in January 2001, Sudden Strike is an RTS-style action game with a
World War II theme. Players control units from the American, German, British,
French or Russian forces, in three distinct campaigns that loosely follow the
major battles of World War two in numerous action-packed scenarios. Gameplay
is focused on fast-paced action with basic elements of realism, like towed
anti-tank cannons, paratroopers, indirect artillery, snipers, bazookas,
fortifications, etc….


environment is almost completely interactive, allowing for bridges, trees,
buildings and other structures to be completely blown up during combat. The
environment also allows for multiple strategies involving use of cover,
snipers, spotters, building defenses and surprise attacks.

beautiful graphics, realistic sounds and historically accurate unit art (up to
1000 units in a mission), Sudden Strike will transport players back in time to
battles set at Stalingrad and the landings of Normandy. Multiplayer mode is
heavily supported with up to 12 players in 4 teams, with cooperative and
head-to-head play.
