PSX - Allied General Box Art FrontPSX - Allied General Box Art Back

Allied General is the sequel to Panzer General and uses the same turn-based gameplay mechanics. This time the player experiences World War II from the Allied point of view during two British, one U.S. and one Russian campaign. The settings are Europe, Russia and Northern Africa. The most important thing to have are prestige points. These are earned by solving scenarios (more for a little amount of turns) and used to buy replacement units. But this is not the only reason to be concerned about the detailed mission results: surviving units are transferred to the next mission and receive experience points. The campaign is also not completely linear, and the next mission depends on the result of the last - this means a lost scenario does not necessarily result in a game over, and a scarce victory can have devastating results. Of course a great victory has positive effects on the next missions.

Additional Information

Developed by SSI, Allied General is a turn-based strategy game originally released for the PC. Your objective is to take control of either the Allied or Axis powers and engage in strategic warfare across the varying terrain of the European countryside.

There are over 35 different scenarios based on actual events that took place during World War II, each an attempt to stop Germany from world domination. You play as an American, British or Soviet general who must lead your troops to victory. As you progress through the campaigns, your individual units become more powerful and experienced.

It is up to you to carry out the battles, but be warned, success only comes to those who carefully plan ahead. Players interested in history may use actual strategies documented for the war, while others may want to experiment with their methods to victory. The choice is entirely up to you -- but succeed by any means necessary. For variety, a few alternate history campaigns have also been included; simply missions that attempt to document what would have happened if so-and-so had done this, or if a certain campaign had never taken place.

  • Features over 35 scenarios across three campaigns

  • Play as American, British, or Russian forces

  • Engage in turn-based battles atop a hexagonal grid

    Controls: Gamepad/Joystick
