Games Domain by Steve Hildrew

"-- what Sudden Strike II does, it does very well, and there are some substantial gameplay improvements, but what you're really looking at is more of the same."

"All this aside, the gameplay core of Sudden Strike II repeats the goodness that made Sudden Strike so popular. The missions are well thought through, and work well with the troop types with which the game supplies you..."

"In many ways, Sudden Strike II's simplicity is its own enemy as well as its friend. The gameplay is as great as ever for those interested in quick-fix strategy gaming, without the rice chopping/ ore mining/ gold collecting of more complicated titles. The simple cover when pulled back reveals a plethora of troop types each able to contribute cleverly to the game if not in combat, then with mine-laying, sniping, long-distance viewing and other strategies all designed to add depth to the proceedings. But in pushing for ever-increasing scale and flexibility, the diversity trips itself up thanks to the simplistic method through which the game is viewed. Gameplay is good, but fiddling around rescuing lost troops, assigning numbers to a multitude of types and directing small divisions through a complex attack tends to work against the spirit of the thing. Less Sudden Strike, and more a "Strike after a certain amount of consideration and some organisational fiddling"."
