War Into the West

Author File Description

File Details
Needs T&P?: Yes
Okay, this represents a fictional World War 3 scenario, where the Soviet Union attacks Western Europe. You are the Soviet Commander in Chief West, and with your ally East Germany you are ready to attack 6 West Europe countries all allied with each other: Norway and Sweden, Great Britain and Ireland, France, ITaly and Switzerland, West Germany, Spain and the Low Countries.
You have a starting army consisting of 2 MiG regiments in Leningrad, a infantry regiment in East Germany, and a Motor Rifle Division south-east of Leningrad, and 3 nukes (2 Leningrad, 1 Vienna).
-Nuclear missiles and wonders are so pricy they are jsut about impossible to build. Use your nukes only if you need to.
A couple notes:
-This scenario is extremely hard. Not kidding. Even on easy you will have a tough time defeating NATO and keeping East Germany under control. Be prepared for a tough fight.
-I know the Colossus is an eyesore, but its needed to keep Russia's pop limit up.
-NATO has several weaknesses you will need to exploit to win:
1. Norway and Sweden and Great Britain and Ireland are seperated by water. If you control the Atlantic and Baltic, you will seperate them from the rest of their allies.
2. West Germany is in easy reach.
3. There are collective resource gathering spots. For example, the Alps, the Ardennes, and the Pyrennes are used by countries that don't have moutnains on their homeland, so you can knock out their metal gathering easily.
-East Germany is extremely weak, and you will need to build defenses to support it. If it takes significant losses, it will demand much tribute or revolt all together.

A big scenario, pretty fun, lots going on. Was laggy in the beginning, not sure why, but shortly after, all was ok and it ran fine. This scenario does offer alot of replayability because of the size, scope and map.

Balance: 5
Well done, forces were roughly equal. I was quickly outnumbered though, probably because my cold war tactics sucked.

Creativity: 4
Not entirely original, but the setting was good and how everything came together worked well. I did like the cold war period in the beginning, gave me a chance to build up.

Map Design: 4
I liked the map, it gave a ton of strategic approaches to try on it.

Story/Instructions: 2
Story is ok on this download section. There was not any in game though. A nice short popup dialog would add some flavor.

Additional Comments:
This was a good big battle scenario. Lots of action and a ton of things going on when the war breaks out. Although I lost pretty badly, overall it was a very good play.
