Gary Grigsby's War in the East 2 is a complex turn-based strategy game set during Second World War. The game is a successor to the series launched in 2002, and is a follow-up to Gary Grigsby's War in the East: The German-Soviet War 1941-1945, which was released in December 2010. 2BY3 Games, the studio behind the development of the series, developed the game with the help of Gary Grigsby, an industry veteran specialising in creating war strategies.

Plot

Gary Grigsby's War in the East 2 takes us on a journey to the Eastern Front of World War II. Over three extensive campaigns and seven smaller scenarios, the game explores the total war between the Third Reich and the Soviet Union, allowing you to take part in key events of the war - from Operation Barbarossa, to the Soviet counter-offensive, to the fall of Berlin.

Mechanics

Gary Grigsby's War in the East 2 takes place in turn-based gameplay on a large hex map. During the game, you fight with land and air units, completing a variety of tasks depending on the operation in which you are participating at any given time.

As in other games in the series, the developers have done their best to recreate the realities of World War II as closely as possible. This includes, above all, a realistic presentation of the characteristics of units, the impact of terrain on their capabilities, as well as how the economy or even the morale of soldiers translate into our opportunities at the front. Despite the fact that the previous instalment of the series could already impress with its level of realism and expansion, its sequel is a significant step forward in almost every respect. Among the most noteworthy changes are the improved artificial intelligence of enemies, a more detailed map (especially rail and road networks), and an improved logistics system; in addition, numerous improvements have been made to the interface.

The game is accompanied by a 520-page manual, which contains information on all the new features, as well as explains each aspect of the game in detail and offers tips on tactics used on the battlefield.

Game modes

Gary Grigsby's War in the East 2 can be played in single player or multiplayer mode (PBEM). The pillars of the game are three extensive story campaigns. The first one includes operations on the Eastern Front between 1941 and 1945, the second focuses on the Red Army's march from Stalingrad to Berlin (1942-1945), while the third concentrates on the Vistula-Oder Operation (January-June 1945). In addition, the game features seven scenarios focusing on specific battles or smaller-scale operations.

Technical aspects

In Gary Grigsby's War in the East 2, graphics play a secondary role, so it is very conventional.
