iEntertainment is famed for Warbirds, which lets us fly around in giant never-ending dogfights. Armored Assault takes the same approach to tank warfare, as a stand-alone improvement to the Warbirds “Tank Attack” module. Is the result a blitzkrieg, or just a thrown track?

I admit to bias but this doesn't sound as in-depth as Panzer Elite. Sounds a little arcadish.

You're correct. My gold standard is Steel Beasts, and it isn't as hardcore as that, either.

Fun, though.

For me, I like a game not hard-core realism, but fun enough that I can log on, with some practice, engage guys and enjoy my experience.

I like a game with good atmosphere. I remember in EAW taking off in the early morning with light fog in the valleys. Beautiful. Another was landing my Su-27 on a fog-shrouded coastline in Flanker 2.5 after a difficult mission.

Does AA have atmosphere or a decent sense of game environment?

Ed - I'd guess you would quite enjoy AA.

The world is quite pretty [see the screenshots - and remember they're all cranked down to 640x480 from 1024x768], and the "involvement" level rises in direct proportion to the number of players on line.

If you want strict historical accuracy in what's goin on, you won't be hapy; anybody can play as any tank, so you have T-34s and Panthers and Shermans all on the same (and opposite) sides.
