The second in the Combat Command 2 series, Desert Rats thrusts players into the campaigns waged in North Africa during the Second World War. Underneath the broiling sun, and amidst the sandstorms and trackless dunes, legendary commanders like Montgomery and Rommel dueled in the maneuver warfare that often characterized this period. Battles were often brutal in the harsh environment of North Africa, a place that could kill you as surely as an 88 could. It was here that American forces received their baptism of fire, and it was here that saw the beginning of the end for the Reich. Grand tactical in nature, the Combat Command 2 series focuses on unique, rarely gamed battles. The battles of North Africa have very seldom been seen in a computer game but Desert Rats brings you seventeen scenarios that cover a wide range of engagements. From Kasserine Pass to the Ruweisat Ridge, combat involves everything from armor on armor to in your face infantry battles. Impressively researched with an eye on detail, sticklers for historical accuracy will find Desert Rats to be one of the most thoroughly researched wargames to grace their hard drives. With plenty of chrome, classic turn based gameplay, an AI that would even give pause to Rommel, and an easy to use scenario editor, Desert Rats is the ultimate North African computer wargame.
