Anyway Steel Fury looks promising, so I hope either one of them will deliver what we expect :hmm:

It seems release is delayed by one week. They shifted it from today, 17th Oct., to the 24th, says unconfirmed info.

I have still not read any info about the copy protection it uses.
I hope their hesitation to announce it does not mean somethign bad.

To ease the pain (I have linked Steel Fury videos in the other thread as well):







And a sound-demo?


Plenty more at youtube.

The offical fourms for this game if I remember it correctly.
I remember they were saying that Russians who already have it were saying that the campagine gets boreing (probably because there is only one type of than to command), and some other stuff. But maby the English version will be better, this was form the russian versoin.

It still might be fun.

Man, gotta love a proactive moderator

I've got T-34 vs Tiger loaded on my 6 year old PC and my new laptop. So far, so good. I've completed two missions in the USSR campaign and I'm getting familiar with the interface.

Ok Neal, your killing me on this. Can you give us some more info on this before I plop some dough down on it whenever it comes out... How is the gameplay, How are the graphics, is it keeping your interest, would you buy it. How is the AI? is it buggy? Is it fun ? Any new info here is welcomed.

Thanks bud, job well done!

And: is it using Starforce, Securom, or something different?

For many potentially interested fans, this is the decisive question.

Hi MDykas,

I'm not trying to tease you, :p but I want to save the findings for the review. I hope to have that done by Friday. I am enjoying the game so far, it really is holding my interest, I will say that. I am five missions into the Soviet campaign and I switched to the German side this afternoon to try it out. The devs did put effort into making the Tiger and T-34 feel like different tanks.

Sky, I have a review copy of the game so it may not have any kind of copy protection. I do not know if the retail version will have starforce or whatever, but I will ask. As you know, I do not review games based on their copy protection as long as the game runs without issues. I don't intend to take myself out of the discussion simply because the game publisher is trying to ward off pirates. Nor am I interested in turning a game review into a CP editorial. But we'll see. So far, so good.
