Wargame: European Escalation Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Macworld recently posted a review of Focus Interactive's Wargame: European Escalation. The real time strategy war game puts players in command of over 350 different vehicles and units as the Cold War of the 80's escalates to World War III.

From the review:

The 3D graphics aren’t exactly state of the art, but they’re realistic and detailed enough to draw you into the action. The game also has one particularly impressive feature that it calls Iriszoom, which allows you to continuously zoom in or out using the scroll wheel on your mouse. When you’re planning your next move you can zoom out to get an overhead map view of the surrounding countryside. This will allow you to plan your strategy and take into account features of the terrain, such as a forest that might provide cover for your ground troops.

Then, with the flick of your mouse button, you can smoothly zoom in on the action, skimming over the treetops or going right down to ground level with your troops. This ability to zoom into the action so quickly helps to create a real sense of involvement that will keep you engaged throughout the single-player campaign. And, as you complete each mission, you also gain Command Points that count towards your ranking when you go online for the multiplayer mode.
