Partisans for PC Windows is a stealth RTS that takes place during WWII. The game was developed by Russian Alter Games – a studio established the seasoned developers who previously worked on games such as Silent Storm, Allods Online, and the Blitzkrieg series.

Plot

The action of Partisans takes place on the western front during World War II. Players take command of a unit comprising several Soviet partisans trying to fight Nazi forces that attack Moscow.

When writing the script, developers drew their inspirations from historical characters that actually took part in this conflict. During their adventures, players constantly have to make difficult moral decisions, e.g. whether to help of a group of civilians at the risk of being exposed or not.

Mechanics

The PC Windows release of Partisans is a real-time strategy game that does not allow players to participate in grand battles – instead, the game revolves around the stealth gameplay model that became popular thanks to the Commandos series.

Players' protégés are always behind the enemy with their training, equipment, and strength in numbers, thus frontal assaults are bound to end with the deaths of all partisans. In order to succeed, one has to complete consecutive missions and avoid detection. Players have to mitigate enemy advantage with ingenuity, e.g. by knowing their surroundings, using the help of the locals, and setting traps. Also meaningful are the lighting and weather conditions.

The campaign takes place across several months, and the changing weather conditions affect each mission. Gameplay is even more diversified thanks to the survival elements – players have to gather supplies and manage them carefully as well as build a hidden camp to have a place for treating wounded soldiers, recruiting new resistance members and train the recruits.

Technical aspects

Partisans offers attractive 3D visuals featuring a bit cartoonish style. The subdued colors serve very well to translate the atmosphere of the in-game story.
