Steel Division: Normandy 44 is a Tactical Real-Time Strategy (RTS) game, developed by Eugen Systems, the creators of titles like Wargame and R.U.S.E. This new game puts players in command of detailed, historically accurate tanks, troops, and vehicles at the height of World War II. Players can measure their tactical skills against several opponents in big multiplayer battles or against enemies in a challenging single-player campaign. Steel Division: Normandy 44 allows players to take control over legendary military divisions from six different countries, such as the American 101st Airborne, the German armored 21st Panzer or the 3rd Canadian Division, during the invasion of Normandy in 1944.

If you've ever played R.U.S.E, then this game will tickle your fancy.

I'm not a gamer (Old man being a kid) but you can start playing at a slow level until you get used to the keyboard moves. Good.

Review from Steam

Steel Division: Normandy 44 remains the best WWII Western Front RTS out there. Steel Division 2 (hereafter SD2) does add some improvements to Normandy 44. Smart orders are great, the Army General mode is awesome (though some campaigns are much better than others), and the graphics are better. Nonetheless, Normandy 44 remains an outstanding game.
Battlegroups in this installment are somewhat less customizable than in SD2, but I actually enjoy that each of Normandy's divisions are more unique due to the more limited customizability. Which model is better is more an issue of preference, but most people seem to enjoy SD2's greater options.
As for SD2's graphic improvements, they are nice, but really only noticeable when you're in the armory or quite zoomed in on your units in combat, not where you'll be most of the time while playing. The stylistic differences of the two games mean Normandy's look still holds up well.
The elephant in the room is that a number of dlc add many of Normandy's divisions to SD2 with the relevant mechanical and graphical upgrades. However, none of these dlc add any Western Front maps to the game. All of SD2's maps are Eastern Front maps. If you're anything like me, you have zero interest in fighting battles with Western Front units in Belarus or Poland. If you're looking to fight authentic WWII RTS battles, what's the point?
Anyhow, all that means that despite the advent of its now fully-fleshed out sequel, including Western Front divisions, Normandy 44 remains extremely fun and the only real Western Front Steel Division experience. At this point, really all it needs is an expansion to add SD2's smart orders and a couple good Army General campaigns. Sadly, it appears that Eugen has long abandoned development in favor of SD2, but Normandy 44 is still great as-is. Also, definitely pick up the Back to Hell expansion if you're interested in some great historical battles and some fun divisions.

This game was a gamble for me when I purchased it. Although the multiplayer is quite dead, I really enjoy making random battle groups, and battling it out. This game is great, and if youre into strat games, youll be right at home. Although I am a little burnt out of video games, this game reels me back in everytime. Its well worth your money, and youll be happy you got it. Have fun playing, thanks for reading

It is a good game I've had fun with it for years, I really don't think its still worth $40 though this game is old and does not have a lot of DLC and was abandoned very quickly. It's still good don't get me wrong, I'd wait for a sale though.
