Few would argue that the outcome of World War II wasn’t for them. But here is a game where you can see if you can achieve the same outcome. Fancy yourself as a bit of an armchair army general? Then check out Strategic Mind: Fight for Freedom, out today on Xbox and PlayStation.
Hot off the heels of Strategic Mind: The Pacific comes another area of World War II fighting. In Fight for Freedom, you can play from two different perspectives: The British and the US. In the British campaign you can take part in the Dunkirk evacuation, end the war in North Africa and land in Italy.
Then, in the US campaign you can witness the D-Day landing, the fall of Berlin and Operation Market Garden. Fight for Freedom also has a neat trick up its sleeve; an alternate history campaign where you face the Red Army in 1946.
This isn’t a straight-up historical FPS however. As the name would suggest, this is a much more tactical affair. Strategic Mind: Fight for Freedom is a turn-based strategy game where you command your units on a hexagonal grid. You can still choose to play the long game by thinking more tactically or go in guns blazing. The choice is yours.
Available to download now, Strategic Mind: Fight for Freedom is on the Xbox Store priced at £24.99. We will have a review for you soon, but if it is anything like Strategic Mind: The Pacific, you may want to hold off on this one.
Strategic Mind: Fight for Freedom is a history-driven turn-based strategy set in World War 2. You will fight across Europe, Africa, and Burma. Will you choose to spend the time on proper reconnaissance before the attack, or rely on fast and aggressive tactics? Will you use nighttime or rain to your advantage, sneaking up on enemy positions, or just complain that the weather was unfavorable? Will you help the locals or leave them to their fate? Saving the stronghold of Democracy and Freedom in Europe from the totalitarian oppression of the Axis powers lies in your hands. Witness WW2 from two different perspectives: The British one features fully historical battles where you lead the British Army as Sir Harold Alexander. Take charge of the Dunkirk evacuation. Fight the Japanese in Burma, and Italians in Africa. Turn the tide of war against Germany at El Alamein. Bring the North Africa war to its end and lead the victorious landing in Italy in 1943. The US one has historical operations up to the defeat of Germany and also features a number of alternate history battles against the USSR afterward. Lead the US Army as General Dwight Eisenhower. Go all the way from D-Day landings to the fall of Berlin. Ensure the success of Operation Market Garden, repel the last German offensive at the Ardennes, and strike the killing blow into the heart of the Reich. Then move into the alternate history of 1946 and face your strongest adversary yet – the Red Army.
