Sudden Strike 4 sends you off on three extensive campaigns set amongst the battlefields of World War II. Commanding the Allied, German or Soviet troops, you will lead over 100 different units into battle; like the German bomber Heinkel He111, the Russian T-34 tank, the British Hawker Typhoon fighter plane and the notorious German Panzerkampfwagen VI "Tiger". In a first for the Sudden Strike series, you can now choose from one of nine individual commanders, such as George Patton or Bernard Montgomery, who will each allow for different approaches to combat and boast unique abilities. Prove your strategic expertise in over 20 demanding singleplayer scenarios, the challenge-focused skirmish mode and the ultra-competitive multiplayer mode via Internet. Exploit the weak spots of tanks, set up an ambush, occupy buildings with infantry, outmaneuver the enemy with clever positioning or unleash devastating air strikes – how you approach each mission is up to you!

One can describe this as: “casual but fun” or “casual *and* fun”. I could go after the unrealistically short spotting (and firing) distance, or how you can cheese most situation by scouting with a rifleman and then shelling them with artillery. But instead, I just choose to enjoy the skirmishes and pretty graphics.

You could say this game is in the middle of being an arcade game and a well thought chess game. I love the freedom you have to strategic place your units to fight against the enemy forces.

Review from Steam

worthy successor of great SS1 and SS2..nice looking graphics and effects, ragdolls, historical weapons and units and missions..excellent and fun. DLC's are also worth the price and they fill the game campaigns nicely as they bring extra nations and units with their missions in game..really good game!

Review from Steam

Sudden Strike was always one of my favorite World War 2 games and after years forgetting this amazing game, I came across Sudden Strike 4. This game is entertaining and fun. I mean whats not fun about splitting your forces in two, having one smash right into the front lines of some heavy defensive position and having the secondary smaller force attack from behind, leaving the enemy with chaotic thoughts and panic? I love the game, I wish there was cheat codes like the original for those days I just want to unleash hell without a single soldier dying, leaving destruction and devastation at every turn, but I do love the potential chance of not having ammo or gas, there were plenty of times where I didn't pay attention to that and it killed me.
This is a fun World War 2 game that I wish had even more to do.

Tl, Dr: Amazing game, and return to form.
I remember playing SS1 and SS2 back in the days of old, and loving those games. Then SS3 came along, and I lost my interest completely. Fast forward years of my life, and I find there is a SS4. Alright, let's give it try.
I was not disappointed.
The problem of SS3 was, you rarely knew what happened, why did your guys just randomly die, where did your units go?
With SS4, this is never the case, the animations, the visuals, the UI, you always feel in control and informed.
Campaign missions each have their unique little story to tell, and there was never a mission that felt repetitive.
There is obviously a lot of work put into the sound design, be it the bang of the guns, or the tense soundtrack, which sticks around in your head long past finishing a play session.
In-game and post game narration helps with the immersion.
Overall, this is what I remembered loving about SS1 and SS2, and I hope there is more to come.

Review from Steam

I am a 45 yo father, probably one of the oldest people playing this game. I am a single father to my Son, who is 14 now. My son got this game for Christmas in 2017 from his uncle, so we installed it on his computer and he started playing. By the end of the week he had 24 hours on this game. This was horrible for me, as it was already hard for me to find ways to spend time with my son, as he is always out with his friends or just watching YouTube. So i decided to make a Steam account and get this game to see if I could maybe play alongside him. I loaded into the game, picked my general and front and started playing but I was stuck on what you where supposed to do. I asked my Son for help and he hosted a game for me to join. I loved it as it was the best time I had spent with my Son since my wife had died. This game has ever since brought me and my son closer again and now we actually spend time together outside the house together as well. This game reminded me that there's fun to be had in everything, and it has brought both me and my Son many happy memories.

Review from Steam

Great game, I really like the RTS feel without the base building ect.
I love the detail and variety of units and command options. Great narrative missions and the DLC is really worth getting.
You really have to plan and use your units wisely rather than just moving in a pile of stuff in one blob.
minor pain, tanks ect run out of fuel even when sitting idle, although true does mean you need to micro manage fuel supply.
