Occasionally here at Wargamer.com we like to step a bit outside our normal wargaming remit and bring the readers something different, but that we believe they will still be interested in. Change is as good as a rest and all that. This time we step into RPG territory with Pillars of Eternity from Obsidian Entertainment, published by Paradox Interactive and reviewed for us by Rob Clark.

Few strategy games can honestly say they are “ripped from the headlines”. However, with fighting continuing in eastern Ukraine, with US Navy ships going into the Black Sea and US troops taking part in exercises in Poland and the Baltic states, Battlefront’s Combat Mission: Black Sea is an exception. Set in 2017, NATO and Russia finally go head-to-head in the Ukraine. No sane person wishes such a confrontation; no thinking person can dismiss it as impossible. The game explores tactical and operational scenarios given modern weapon systems.

This is it, ladies and gentlemen. After the debacle that was the fifth installment of the SimCity franchise, the collective fanbase of city builders can breathe a sigh of relief. Already, in the far off distance of cybernetic landscapes, thousands of players around the world are watching their new cities grow out of the smooth, digital earth. Buildings scraping against the sky like colossal Titans and wind turbines shifting in the breeze like merry sunflowers are all chanting a chorus of “Everything is Awesome.” If you have been one of these individuals who has been waiting years for the next good city builder, a spunky Finnish studio named Colossal Order has just granted your wish.

As a wise man once said, "And now for something completely different!". Well perhaps not completely different, but Vietnam ’65 is not just another wargame...

Every game company usually has a niche in which they define themselves and are in tern defined by the market at large. Dan Verssen Games has made their niche in the industry by providing high quality solitaire games to the war gaming public. While not all of their games are solitaire, their most recent release Fleet Commander Nimitz is the newest title in their solitaire “Commander” series which includes Field Commander Rommel, Field Commander Napoleon and Field Commander Alexander. Like the other games in the series, Fleet Commander Nimitz offers nearly the perfect mix of strategy and tactics.

In his semi-regular column War Tapes, Jake Tucker takes a look at the Slitherine – Hunted Cow Studio cooperation Hell – a fantasy wargame development of the successful Battle Academy 2 game engine. As this has just been released on iPad now may be a good time to have another look at it.

Initially released last year through Desura, and in January this year on Steam, War, the Game developed by Obbe Vermeij (who worked on the GTA franchise for Rockstar) managed to avoid getting a review here on Wargamer.com. Apologies to Obbe for this oversight which we will now correct; read on...

Slitherine have released an iPad version of the game, so doughty pikemen, musketeers and cuirassiers (plus a whole host of assorted sidekicks) can play the game almost anywhere. I’m not going to give a full in depth review of the game as it is a straight port to the tablet platform and Bill Gray has covered the game in full; what I’ll do it look at how well the game performs on the iPad. For reference I’ve used an iPad 4 for this review.

Enemy Coast Ahead

26 Jan 2015 0

The Dambusters raid! One of the iconic episodes of World War 2. One of the first books I read about the war was Paul Brickhill’s “The Dam Busters” and the old black and white film of the raid still gets regular airings on UK TV. Enemy Coast Ahead: The Dambuster Raid is a new solitaire game from GMT which examines all aspects of this amazingly audacious attack and it is reviewed for Wargamer.com by our regular board game reviewer, Richard Martin.
