Fight for Dominance with the latest Strategic Mind game on Xbox

It’s been about a year since we found the Strategic Mind series blast onto Xbox, but if we’re honest, it’s not a set of games that has really excited. Can the latest to launch on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S save the series? It’s time to find out in Strategic Mind: Fight for Dominance on Xbox. 

Strategic Mind: Fight for Dominance from Starni Games and Klabater is the latest in the series to try its luck on Xbox. Having kicked things off with Strategic Mind: The Pacific (1.5/5 in review) back in August 2022, it’s a series that immediately struggled. It got no better with Strategic Mind: Fight for Freedom either, with us rating that 1/5 in review. 

But signs of improvement came about with the release earlier in 2023 of Strategic Mind: Spectre of Communism. We dropped a 2.5/5 score on that one, commenting how ‘Strategic Mind: Spectre of Communism is better than previous games in the franchise’. 

Hopes are raised as we Fight for Dominance

So hopes are high with the launch of the next game, Strategic Mind: Fight for Dominance on Xbox. Just be aware you’re going to need to shell out some £41.74 in order to grab a download from the Xbox Store. 

Dip in though and Strategic Mind: Fight for Dominance focuses on the German Armed Forces, as they look to do the unthinkable and find victory in Europe. Alternatively, the USSR Armed Forces are ready for a full-on Communist Revolution. The question is, which side will you fall on?

Delivered with period-correct elements mixed with alternate history moments, Strategic Mind: Fight for Dominance pushes forth the WW2 angle at every moment. Cinematics will immerse, whilst gameplay then takes to the fore, with numerous objectives for you to concern yourself with. 

Land, sea or air – the key features are rich

Whether you take to the battle via land, sea or air, Strategic Mind: Fight for Dominance promises highly detailed units, powered by Unreal Engine 4, the chance to upgrade your troops and the opportunity to embark on a host of operations. 

The key features list is a long one in fact…

  • Command ground, air, and naval forces with an emphasis on land battles.
  • Enjoy the modern 3D graphics brought by UE4 engine with detailed models of all the units, day/night cycle and weather effects.
  • Upgrade and customize your troops by leveling them up and selecting skills that best suit your strategy.
  • Provide your troops with additional equipment for each operation according to your strategy and the war theatre.
  • Receive a number of awards throughout the game and get access to unique HQ skills, which you can learn to increase the efficiency and synergy of your troops.
  • Acquire various new units out of 10 different classes. All units and equipment are available at historically accurate time periods.
  • Capture trophies and employ some of the enemy`s most advanced units against him in future battles.
  • Explore various “what if’s” to see what could have happened if the Soviet Armed forces were to continue their struggle for the world Communist revolution or what could have happened should the German Armed forces be even more successful in their struggle for dominance over the European continent.
  • Immerse yourself into the story by watching over 60 minutes of cinematics, and listening to in-operation dialogues with full VO.

If you have previously played a Strategic Mind game and got on with it, we’d suspect that Strategic Mind: Fight for Dominance will appeal. If that is the case, fill your boots with the download available over at the Xbox Store. Just remember that £41.74 price tag though, eh!

On the chance you are new to the series, we’d guess you’ll be best off waiting for our full review. We’re planning to see if Starni Games and Klabater can continue the upward trend with Strategic Mind: Fight for Dominance on Xbox.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
