As Ron Perlman aptly puts it at the start of the popular post-apocalyptic RPG series Fallout, "war never changes."
The same can be said for nearly every game set within the confines of war. After all, there are only so many scenarios you can play through before you've seen and played through every pivotal battle in every war ever.
So, it's down to the History Channel licensed game Legends of War to bring something new to the table. Surprisingly, it manages to achieve this without treading on the toes of what's come before.
Patton the back
Great fun in small blasts, but unfortunately the repetitive play becomes tiresome over time. At least its narrative stands out in the sea of World War II games
