Sudden Strike 3: Arms for Victory
Strategy 30 November 2007
The third installment in the popular RTS game series set in the period of World War II and developed by Fireglow. Even though the game utilizes the framework created for the previous installments in the series, the authors decided to implement a number of changes, improvements, and fresh solutions, the most prominent being a new graphics engine. The so-called Sudden Strike Next7 can render enormous and diverse locations as well as multiple units at the same time, allowing for creating dynamic lighting and shadowing effects. Because of that, the players can freely move the camera and precisely zoom in on the events taking place on a battlefield. Sudden Strike 3: Arms for Victory offers an entirely new interface allowing one to control multiple squads – this regards both ground and naval units. The game puts a strong emphasis on the battle preparation – the developers have taken care to introduce a new logistics system, as well as the option to create defensive systems. What is also worth mentioning, the game supports multiplayer matches that accompany the standard single-player campaign.
