Description: A Blitzkrieg, a horrifying parade of destructive machinery, approaches the Allied front. The Allies’ sole chance at surviving the devastating onslaught is a soldier with a classified, experimental M-4 Sherman tank. Turn the tide of war with a combination of steel resolve and good ol’ American ingenuity.
Review: Take a step back in time to 1944 and drop into the seat of a top-secret advanced M-4 Sherman tank designed to spearhead the Allied advance. Pull up your sleeves and take control of this rolling metal fortress as you experience both intense 1st person action and thrilling 3rd person tank battles in this WWII adventure.
To counter the German “Blitzkrieg” the West is sending you, a replacement tank commander with a head of steel and a not so bulletproof resolve. Take your workhorse of a tank behind enemy lines and fire as many cannon shells and .50 calibre bullets your trigger finger can muster. Move through each mission using an arsenal of weapons to fight the toughest troops the 3rd Reich can throw at you.
Winter Fury WWII is more fun to play than I thought it would be, but sadly the gameplay does get repetitive quickly. With 6 Missions to do and gold stars to get for the completionists, you will be playing this for a while so it’s nice that it looks pretty good and there are some great one-liners to smile about. While I do think it a little overpriced at the moment if you managed to pick this up in a sale you would be pretty happy with it.
