Back to News Listing Highway To The Reich Strategy Guide Now Available!

Posted: Wednesday, June 02, 2004 by Matrix Support

Type: News

Matrix Games and Panther Games (www.panthergames.com) are pleased to announce the release of our strategy guide for the award-winning Highway to the Reich. The Strategy guide is really two books in one. Part one contains information on the game’s features and how to improve your skills. The second part provides the historical background on the battle. The strategy guide will offer wargamers a closer look at what Highway to the Reich is all about.

Highway to the Reich is the second wargame released by Panther Games in their critically acclaimed Airborne Assault© series. The new release covers the famous WW2 Operation Market Garden, a daring airborne operation designed by the Allies to breach the German defenses and end the war before Christmas 1944. Historically, the Germans reacted quickly and were able to stymie the advance by the British armor up the single “Hell’s Highway” while they overran the valiant British paratroopers who were defending a bridge too far. In Highway to the Reich, players get to take on the role of either the Allied or German commanders and pit their wits against either a computer controlled opponent or a human opponent via LAN or the internet.

Highway to the Reich is receiving rave reviews in the USA and Europe. It is being heralded as “revolutionary”, “extraordinary”, “the new future of wargaming”. At its heart is “the best AI ever seen in any game”. For the first time, players can command like real operational commanders. Or as the GameSpot reviewer puts it “It's hard to convey just how cool this system is, because not only does it eliminate the massive amount of micromanagement inherent in most wargames, but it does so in a way that makes it feel like you're really commanding forces in the field.”

Pike & Shot is now available!

Thursday, October 16, 2014

"Not only strike while the iron is hot, but make it hot by striking.” (Oliver Cromwell – English military and political leader)

In the age of Pike and Shot, mighty struggles erupted across Europe for religious, political or dynastic causes. The greatest powers of that period were regularly involved in conflicts and struggles to increase their dominance over the continent. Some countries have also to deal with inner tensions and are torn apart between factions. War is in the air. But war has changed. Due to the development of new technologies, traditional medieval tactics have been substituted with a totally different approach to effectively utilise the new formations and weapons.
