In line with strategy games (where it is really a matter of tactics) dedicated to the battle of Normandy, the French company Eugen Systems offers a particularly successful opus. The video game “Steel division: Normandy 44” is in line with the creations “Close Combat: Invasion Normandy” and “Brothers in Arms“, relying on a real historical study to offer the player a precise and faithful immersion The Second World War and the Battle of Normandy in particular.
Steel division: Normandy 44 uses the concept of the games of the Wargames range which propose to the user to choose his combat tools, to position them in the time allowed, to fulfill main missions and secondary ones. This is not a simple game of entertainment: the level is very high! Before embarking on the battle, study your terrain, follow up the logistics of the deployed units, respect the balance of power of the committed means. The characteristics of the available military devices are faithful to the historical reality, and they form part of a framework inspired by the battles that really existed. Nevertheless, for the animation needs of the game, certain freedoms vis-à-vis history have been taken by the developer, without it spoiling the quality of the entertainment. You will thus be at the same time chief of group, head of section, commander of unit or head of corps of military units.
You can choose to take command of American paratroopers of the 82nd Airborne Division dropped in the Cotentin on the night of June 5-6, 1944, to lead British units during the Battle of Normandy (especially during Operation Epsom) or to direct German units against the Allied forces. If you are passionate about the tactics facing an adversary who maneuvers in a historical setting inspired by the Battle of Normandy, this game is to be tested imperatively!
