Description: The Normandy invasion has started and it’s time to move your battalions of tanks off the beaches and into the battlefields of Europe. You are in command of each tank, all the way down to the angle and power of each shot. Choose your shell type, aim by skill (not random values), move anywhere (no grids) and take on the armoured machines of the Axis powers, or switch sides and defend fortress Europe from the Allied invasion.

Battle Fleet: Ground Assault lands the Battle Fleet series onto the tank battlefields of World War 2. Continuing the strategy and unique “Worms” / “Scorched Earth” style angle+distance mechanic of Battle Fleet 2, Battle Fleet: Ground Assault adds destructible environments, armour, shell types and all new tactics. Hit their engines and cripple the enemy’s manoeuvrability, or aim for the crew compartment and disable their tank for an entire turn. With a full-featured campaign and a variety of single play scenarios, Battle Fleet: Ground Assault will make you feel like Patton charging through the German lines.

Review: Battle Fleet: Ground Assault is a 1 VS 1 tank action game in which you start off choosing your army of tanks from a range of them. Then you take turns moving your army into position. While that sounds OK on paper I did find myself standing around, looking at nothing while waiting for the enemy to take his turn. There are no online players, so you might have to get a friend to download this as well to get the best value for money because it doesn’t have a lot of single-player content. I did enjoy playing this, even if it was a bit slow-paced, but I would wait for a sale as I felt the current price of £11.39 was about 50% too much. It’s worth a look for strategy fans, but only for the right price.
