You'd think with RTS games coming out of our ears that we would eventually tire of them. But no, the more we play, the more we want to play. Some genres have serious longevity, and the RTS game is one of them. So without further ado, we look at RTS game 10 billion and one - Cold War Conflicts.

GMX's Cold War Conflicts is set in the historical period of the Cold War era from 1950 to 1973. Spread across four campaigns, you take control of the military forces of eight different nations that comprise of the USA, Israel, Egypt, North Korea, Great Britain, Syria, the USSR and China. Some campaigns are non-linear, which means that success or failure in some result in a different starting point and strength of military forces in following missions.

The Israeli campaign is set against the backdrop of the Arab-Israeli war of 1956. The Egyptian campaign reflects the third Arab Israeli war of 1973. The north-Korean campaign deals with the first part of the Korean War of the 1950s. And finally, the American campaign shows the second part of the Korean War involving the same combatants as the North Korean campaign.

Cold War Conflicts sticks to the tradition of realistic warfare, whereby the player has to deal with short supplies and missions that have to be solved with a specified set of units. There are some additional resources like aerial support, and every hit can be lethal for both infantry and equipment. Single-player epic aside, Cold War Conflicts features an engaging multi-player mode with a refined system of gaining supplies by controlling certain key points of the map.

It's a hardcore RTS and that's that. Enjoy.
