Verdun is the first multiplayer FPS set in a realistic World War One setting. Merciless trench warfare offers a unique battlefield experience, immersing you and your squad into intense battles of attack and defense.
it, this game deserves much more attention! That alone shows the effect the game had on me!
The game is simply a masterpiece! Atmospherically one of the best shooters I've ever played!
To classify it in the genre: The game is much slower than Battlefield, (in my eyes) more realistic than Red Orchestra and still not as slow as Arma.
The focus here is on realism and authenticity. Both are accompanied by a portion of attention to detail. The result is the absolute benchmark in terms of WW1, should this genre spread in the future.
The battle for trenches with sluggish weapons, gas and regular melee battles in alternating attacking and defending waves is incredibly intense. The WW1 couldn't have been better!
Just the fact that the ranking is not sorted by shooting down individual players, but by total points of the individual squads (troops), underlines what is important in this game: the joint team play and the coordinated implementation of commands to storm the enemy trench and keep your own.
Maps, weapons, and equipment are sufficiently available and well balanced.
For currently not even 22€ that is a clear purchase instruction to all, which look for times something new and fastidious. Even as a full-price title I would recommend Verdun!!!
Just as a reminder: this is the first time that I write here because the game simply deserves it!
