Aggressive Aggression: Europe 1914 blow-****-up reel

Europe's really burning now.

The upcoming title Aggression: Europe 1914 from Buka Entertainment lives up to its title in this demo gameplay reel which features s***, more s***, and even more s*** being blown to kingdom come. But before we get to that fun part, let us make the observation that gameplay-wise, Aggression bears a resemblance to the Total War series in that there’s a strategic, big-world gameplay phase and there’s the real-time tactical battle phase.

Okay, now let’s get to the fun part. Buka claims their game engine is capable of handling the routines of “hundreds of detailed units in action,” and based on this reel, it looks like they might have lived up to that promise (although we could think of ways of proving that claim, it’s gotta wait at least until a demo’s available). Simply put: Massed infantry = mass casualties.

Oh, and in case you’re wondering about your history lesson, no, this isn’t another World War II video game. This one is set in the earlier World War I, a change of pace from the rash of WWII games dumped on our laps in recent years. We’d say hallelujah, but then again, war is hell.
