Blitzkrieg: Battle At The Ardennes is a conversion of the 1965 board game Blitzkrieg from Avalon Hill. In stead of the fictional country the original board game plays in this game features the Battle of the Bulge in the second World War. The game is a turn-based strategical wargame that plays on a map with hexagonal tiles. Each tile can represent different types of terrain, such as urban and forest, which has impacts on your units. Like the board game it features both land, naval and aerial units; this includes artillery and even V-2 Rockets. The game can be played against the computer or against another player.
A conversion of the board game of the same name, this simulation of Battle of the Bulge had a confusing interface and lengthy game mechanics. Although it's a faithful conversion, the awkward user interface and questionable AI makes it one of the worst wargames from RAW. Definitely a case of fun sacrified for the sake of realism alone, Blitzkrieg will appeal only to die-hard wargamers who are interested in the subject matter and crave historical accuracy. Even the manual is poorly written. Overall, a disappointing wargame that could have been much more, had the designers focus less on faithfully recreating the complex boardgame and more on playability.
