History: Legends of War: Patton is a great strategic game. This is not a game for the lighthearted, however. Turn-based strategy combat games are among the most challenging types of video games in the industry and this one is no exception. It is not built to be frustratingly difficult, but rather to further make the point that World War II -- and General Patton's role therein -- was no piece of cake. It is a very refreshing and welcome approach to telling the story of a historic point in time, in a way that no video game has really done before. It definitely earns points in that regard. Some of the missions may seem repetitive at times, and there are occasionally wild variances in the level of difficulty, but that is perhaps the point of the game, to make sure players are on their toes and can get at least some kind of a grasp of what it was like to be the one making all the decisions on the battlefield during a time of such turmoil and uncertainty. World War II buffs will very much appreciate the approach that this game takes.
