About Sudden Strike 4

Sudden Strike 4 holds true to many of its traditional (and differentiating) gameplay elements that are the hallmark of the series, such as a focus on careful unit preservation and tactical exploitation of strength vs. weakness – rather than resource gathering and replacement unit construction.
