Advanced Daisenryaku is a Mega Drive war game. Partial English language translations as well as a Chinese language translation can be found on the Internet. The game takes place during World War II, and the player can either play as Nazi Germany, its allies or its opponents. There are lots of tanks, artillery, infantry, cavalry, and air force units to use and they can be upgraded once the maximum experience points of 255 are obtained. In addition to a campaign mode, there is also a scenario mode for single missions. Combat involves capturing cities with infantry and attacking with all other units on the battle field. This is to prevent them from supporting their own infantry that can and will occupy the player's vacant cities. Cities are not captured wholesale but rather piece by piece as infantry embark on unoccupied hexes and proceed to occupy one sector of a given city at a time until the city turns into their color.

However, units need ammunition and gasoline. If gasoline runs out, then the units cannot be moved again until they are resupplied. Due to an unintended glitch, infantry units use gas instead of food to move. If ammunition runs out, then they must return to a friendly urban hex for resupplying. The game's advanced engine allows an individual nation to be controlled (for example, one could choose to play as Belgium and not the entire Allied Forces). This helps the player focus on defending his own country instead of having to defend up to 4 countries at once. The Americans show up late game with their impressive firepower. However, like in real history, the Russians are the closest Allied forces to Berlin and will most likely capture the entire city before the Anglo-American forces can access Berlin proper.

Multiplayer action can be found by accessing the special modem that was sold for the Sega Mega Drive. In addition to the historic campaigns, there are also extra maps designed for multiplayer action. Since the Sega Mega Drive is a device that was manufactured prior to the invention of broadband Internet in Japan, the multiplayer mode can work on dial-up Internet only. For example, a map that has Ireland divided between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union requires both players to have patience and skillful use of supply units.

Advanced Daisenryaku 2001 fixed some bugs and moderately improved the graphics of Europe no Arashi and as such it is less of a sequel and more of a fix.

Daisenryaku Expert WWII: War in Europe (大戦略エキスパートWWⅡ?, "Great Strategy Expert WWII") is a Super Famicom game that takes place during World War II. There is a scenario mode and a campaign mode. The player usually controls Nazi Germany as a default but it can be changed prior to the game. The action takes place on both the Eastern Front and the Western front. The final battle involves either defending Berlin or attempting to occupy it. Like most Daisenryaku games, airplanes can only be manufactured on airports, ships can only be manufactured on docks, and land-based units can only be manufactured on urban hexes that are closest to the headquarters. Dive bombers can destroy cities and airports, destroying people and supplies. Even when retreating, enemy combatants can still catch up to the retreating units and knock them out, providing that they have enough ammo and gasoline to do the job.

Iron Storm is a video game for the Sega Saturn. It was released in 1996 in North America.

Story

Iron Storm is a strategy game that takes place within the context of World War II. The game's general premise is to allow players to pick a side (United States, Nazi Germany, or Japan) and then work their way across several battles within the war. The game takes place in both the Pacific Theatre and European Theatres. In addition, if a player wins certain battles then the path of the war changes. For example, Nazi Germany winning the Battle of Britain will allow for an eventual invasion of America, as will Japan defeating the United States at the Battle of Midway.

Gameplay

During battles in campaign mode, the player mobilizes a large variety of customizable units (tanks, aircraft, submarines, and warships) across a hexagon-shaped grid in order to defeat the opposing Allied or Axis forces controlled by the game's AI. In addition, as time progresses you are able to upgrade individual units either based on experience levels or as a blanket technology upgrade. Experimental weaponry is used in some later battles, including some German jet aircraft like the Messerschmidt Me 262. The map system itself is static but real-time 3-D animations are used to recreate encounters between various types of units, an option that can also be toggled off.

The player has 22 countries to select from, each with their own different set of strengths and weaknesses to utilize and try to strengthen.

To add to this, each individual unit can gain experience and level up, much like an RPG, and this will give units increased accuracy, defense, and other bonuses.

The game will also be the first in the series to feature online multiplayer for consoles, and will still allow for local multiplayer as well. There can be up to eight people in one session, with anyone being able to ally with computer controlled countries or with other players. There is no limit or rule for how many people can ally. There can be two teams of four, four teams of two, or even 7 against one if players wish it.
