One of the most hyper realistic wargames available, BCT Commander is a real time strategy game that examines the complexities of fighting on the modern battlefield. Developed by Patrick Proctor and his team at ProSim, BCT Commander is real enough to be in use as a senior commander training tool for armies around the world. If you've ever bemoaned the lack of realism found in most wargames here's your chance to step up to the plate and see how well you would do in command.

BCT Commander is more than a wargame, it's a complete simulation of land warfare. And what exactly does that mean? The easiest definition is that a simulation attempts to create an accurate interpretation of reality without regard to balance issues, while a game strives for balance more than realism. In BCT Commander units behave like they do in real life. You won't find perfectly balanced sides, nor will you find many conventions you're used to in gaming. For example, ordering a unit to start moving won't see it hitting warp five out of the gate. In real life military units don't do 0-60 in 5.5 seconds, unlike your typical RTS game.

This may seem daunting at first but the rewards gained are immense. Anyone can do a tank rush, but can they mount a three pronged coordinated attack on a heavily entrenched enemy position? BCT Commander is a real time strategy game that requires more brainpower than fingerpower. Victors will emerge not from knowing how to hit the hotkeys fastest, but knowing what your forces are capable of and what the enemy can do to those forces.

Speaking of real time, it should be noted that real time in BCT Commander truly means real time. One second of gameplay is the equivalent of one second of real world time. What this means to the player is that he can expect true to life reload times, artillery barrages that don't arrive instantaneously, troops that take time to mount and dismount, and much more. In short, BCT Commander's use of real time is more than just a gimmick, it's an important facet of the simulation aspect.

BCT Commander includes the original Brigade Combat Team, both expansion CDs, and the construction set for creating your own scenarios, all on one CD! Saddle up and see what it's like to take command of a modern military unit with BCT Commander!
