Graphics and Sounds

Just a quick note on these, although you’ve already seen the graphics. Graphics are purely functional, although adequate. But with the typical wargame interface, you can bet this won’t take your graphics card even if it’s not one of the newer ones. Sounds? Again, functional — some radio messages come in (“Contact, wait, out” goes one), and you get the sounds of tanks firing, missiles being launched etc. It does add to the atmosphere, but I’m not sure just how much — I suppose there has to be some sound, right?

Multiplayer

The game supports multiplay over a LAN and also Play By E-mail (PBEM). I haven’t tested them but, given how solid the rest of the game is, I’ve no reason to think there might be any issues.

Conclusions

So there you have it. An insight into Flashpoint Germany. Overall, a solid game and one that I think justifies the outlay. I know that a lot of simmers aren’t big wargamers, but if you go away on business a lot and have a laptop, it might be worth considering this as a “travel game” you can bring with you — it certainly beats mini chess.

Anyway, definitely a game worth its price. Hats off to Matrix for a solid addition to the genre.
