World War II - Road to Victory

Product Info

Wage World War 2 in Europe from the front lines in France and Russia to the deserts of North Africa and the airfields and convoys of Britain in World War II: Road to Victory! This turn-based grand strategy title, the first release from IQ Software, puts the player at the helm of one or more Axis or Allied nations, including minor nations, amidst a continent torn by full scale war.  Combat, production, research and diplomacy are all fully modeled.

A diplomacy system based on political points allows you to sway possible allies to your side.  Naval combat includes fleet engagements, elusive raiders and U-Boats as well as a convoy system.  Concentrate precious industrial resources on building, training and upgrading a wide variety of combat units from airborne soldiers and armored divisions up to nuclear weapons!  Historical leaders enhance the performance of your armies and historical events give you choices that can change the course of history.  World War II: Road to Victory is fought across turns that vary in length by season and 25 km hexes with divisions and corps, giving the player a broad strategic picture of the war while still leaving enough room for operational decisions.

Gamershall.de Review
6.0 - One must congratulate both companies that they approached the title with such vigor and enthusiasm. [translated from German]

Diehard Gamefan Review
Above Average - So, after all that has been typed here about World War 2: Road to Victory, does it pass the mark? I think it does.

Strategium-Alliance Review
[Translated from French] The game is simple, 2 minutes on basic mechanisms, and the 10 minutes after going through the manual, which was very well done. The manual itself is already a very good point for the game. And further, the game is fast, we can go through a turn in about 3 minutes. However, the game is not superficial, opportunities remain important because of the size of the map and the production system that balances between quality and quantity.
