Game Description:In Eric Young's Squad Assault, you command troops in both the Allied and German Armies of the West Front of World War II in an immersive, fully 3D continuous time environment. Detailed models for all the major armies that fought in France in 1944 are available, including American, German, British, Canadian, and Free French. For those who prefer traditional turn-oriented play, a user-defined auto-pause feature for order entry and battlefield assessment allows for a more thoughtful game, while the 2D overhead map shows the battle from a more traditional top-down view. Once the battle starts, the virtual soldiers you command respond with real reactions to the combat situations around them.
Squad Assault was originally released in 2003, with a retail package release in 2005 with a packed in World Editor and extra content under the title Squad Assault: West Front.
