SUN02-The Regiment

Post by tonydowler » July 12th, 2011, 12:54 pm

I've been eyeing this game for a while, and SUN02 I got the chance to play it.

The Registment is an AW hack where World War II is the apocalypse. Instead of ending, the war came to engulf the world, spiralling into a permanent state of industrialized full scale war. We were an elite regiment of a factionalized region of Bolivia tasked with capturing a town and silencing an artillery company to open a road through the mountains for a major offensive.

Part of this game is making battle plans, which let you narrate opportunities on the battlefield. Remi's sniper spotted a goat trail which he was able to use to get overwatch of the entire battlefield and direct an artillery barrage on top of the enemy artillery. This became very important later when my Sargent led his troops into a maching gun nest and the sniper elected to help get us out of trouble when he was supposed to be spotting for the artillery. The game is way cool, and I'm sure it's only going to get better!
