The shift in victory/defeat levels are not clear

There were many big battles during World War II. This was a war that brought strategies, technologies, armor, equipment, and the minds behind a war to new levels. Regardless of the side, everyone worked harder and with greater strength than ever seen before, and ever seen since.

In Russian Front, you can see and experience part of that. You can take part in Germany’s attack on Russia, playing as either side. Whether you prefer to go in from the start as Germany or you want to go in as Russia for the victory, the history and amazing features you have here will bring this incredible part of the war to life.

Russian Front starts off with Germany’s move towards Russia. This was one of the biggest parts of the war, and you get to experience it for yourself. If you want to start the game from the very beginning, you can play as the Germans. You will fight against the Russians as you move towards your final destination, though, as decided by history, it will lead to your defeat. If you would prefer to jump ahead, you can play as the Russians. Choose where in the war you begin. This gives you the chance to experience your favorite parts of this little section of history.

There 108 turns total in the campaign, though you can start out at four separate parts of the game. When you jump right into Russian Front, you will have plenty of strategy to play with. Seasons affect you, there are several units, and there are many differences between Germany and Russia.

These are a few things to keep in mind moving forward. This game has a lot going for it, and it allows you to build a decent strategy that you can trust to work and that will crush the opponent. You can switch up the strategy for seasons and the side that you play, too.

Russian Front does have a great strategic side to it, but it is not overly complicated. While there are quite a few things that you have to consider as you plan your moves, you do not have to worry about it going too far in depth. This makes it perfect for people who want a casual strategy game or who are new to the genre. It is a familiar, comfortable feel that any fan will enjoy, but without any of the extra complexity that makes some other games so difficult to get into at first.

Realism is an important aspect of Russian Front. To make the war experience feel brutal, and to give you an idea of how insane the front was for all soldiers, you have to make it realistic. While the game itself is still your typical hex tile strategy game, at its core, it offers more than enough points to keep it feeling like a real war. This adds the depth and the interest that you want, keeping the story and the gameplay engaging as you play.

Russian Front is free to play.
