Title: Order of Battle: Blitzkrieg
Genre: Simulation, Strategy
Release Date: 10 Nov, 2016
I played all Pacific themed Campaigns and found them very enjoyable, but this DLC is a fine example when thin red line between challenge and frustration has been crossed...
Example - mission Kiev. Primary objective:
1) Capture Kiev - ok
2) Kill 100 russian units in 30 turns...
5th attempt to beat the scenario, turn 30 - 97 russian units killed, 3 units of soviets conscripts hidden somewhere in the woods...outcome - DEFEAT - message: Blitzkrieg has been stopped dead in it's tracks...really ?
You don't get the feeling of conducting lightning war in this campaign. You'r always outnumbered by the enemy (even in Poland or Belgium...) and you're in constant need of resource points to replenish your forces.
Overall OOB is a good game, but this DLC sucks because of very bad scenario design.
. Much light, some shadows. The scenarios are mostly well designed and quite difficult. Usually you need 1-3 try to complete one sucessfully. One big downer es the fact, that you play the scenarios in a given order. It doesnt matte how good or bad you finished one, you cant change or choose anything in the campaign. Despite that, if you loved panzer general or panzer corp, you will also like this game.. By far the best of the order of battle dlc's
massive scale for some battles in russia
the whole oob series has flaws and feels disjointed with different dlc following different criteria
if you only buy one dlc though this is the one to go for. Im playing the Norway scenerio as part of a campaign. The scenerio requires me to eliminate at least 6 british\/French units to win but does not register my kills afterwards. Iv'e lost the scenerio after replaying 5 times now, and I even started a new campaign thinking it would resolve this problem, however, it still persists.. I love OOB. This scenario pack however is not very good.
First of all, you've probably played these scenarios over and over again on other games. They bring very little new to the table. The German invasion of Norway, played the exact same way, Oh joy. I was hoping they'd do something clever and give us an original twist to these well-played scenarios. They didn't.
The second problem is that these are terribly balanced. While the original OOB had great, well balanced scenarios the ones here aren't that much fun. There's less room for movement and you're incredibly outnumbered. I was probably outnumbered 3 or 4 to 1 on the Ardennes scenario which is an absolute absurdity. In that scenario you have about 45 command points. The French and Belgs alone have 8-10 tanks at 6 command points each, never mind infantry, artillery and the like. It's not fun and it's not realistic.
In short, original game = good. This scenario pack = absolute crap.. Game crashes a lot. It also disappeared from my campaigns after I had purchased it as if I never bought it.. Excellent DLC, gives a good idea of the fast pace of the Blitzkrieg in the early years, eventually bogging down in Russia. The little news snippets every now and then also provide great perspective about the news of the day and what was going on elsewhere in the world at the same time. It is a very enjoyable DLC, with a good balance of weapons and reasonably accurate relative strength. German units are generally stronger, but you still have to use them wisely and it is easy to get overwhelmed by Russian superior numbers towards the end. Nice to play out several historically significant and well-known battles all the way from the invasion of Poland to the assault on Moscow.. Did you watch the film Dunkirk and think Tom Hardy should have been shot down? Good news - you have the opportunity in this DLC. The initial invasion of France mission involved a secondary goal of shooting down a Spitfire.
This DLC is just plain fun. Get some Stukas and BF109s and have at it from the skies while your tanks zoom around various locations in Europe. The missions bounce around geographically, which is great as you fight basically every nation involved in WWII. There's no end to the fun. Ride the train from Bergen to Oslo, just like on Netflix's Slow TV program! Save the Italians from themselves! Remind the Greeks they're Slavs! Apologize to your Polish relatives as you gleefully take Warsaw!
Also, there's an armored train, which is as hilarious of a concept as it is fun. Choo choo, mother \u2665\u2665\u2665\u2665ers.
