Spinning a new take on World War 2, Soldiers: Heroes of World War II pulls you out of the field and into the commander's head. Your group isn't as large as an army in Age of Empires, but the inclusion of vehicles pushes it out of the realm of squad warfare.
Some squad based elements remain however, as you can take direct control of an individual soldier or vehicle and aim and move him directly with your keyboard and mouse. This can be used to great effect in raising the efficency on the front line.
The game's dozens of soldier and vehicle meshes are all well modeled, textured and animated. The game's locales are very well done too, taking you to war torn Europe.
Tacos Mod Alpha-6 has over 40 new textures, most of which were made by the new texture artist Fagu_Aegeis. With him on the team, many Tacos Mod weapons such as FG-42 now have their own textures instead of another weapon's texture & many weapons that were already in the vanilla game now have 4x higher resolution textures.
The 7. Flieger-Division campaign has 2 more missions, both with an introduction that no one will read, objectives, unique maps etc. Both missions are set in Norway, one of which you have to fight an entire company on your own & the other one you have to survive against over 200 angry Frenchmen & Norwegians. These will be the last missions set in Norway, future missions will be set in Belgium, the Netherlands & France.
Some of the Tacos Mod maps were updated to cover some empty spaces & make other areas more detailed. Alpha-6 also have more additions & changes not already mentioned, like 4 new weapons.
I hope you will enjoy this update & if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

An historic first entry into one of the best RTS game series released in the last decade. For a game released in 2004, you don't get much better than this, in terms of game play mechanics and visuals. Although looking dated now, it still has a replay factor which most other games just simply do not have. It's still a game which can warrant a quick play through as it is compatible with the latest OS such as Win 7 / 8, so there is no excuse not to relive the old memories and jump back into some old-fashioned…
