Official description

"Aggression" is a real time strategy game with role-playing elements, in which the player may take the role of the leader of one of the four nations: Russia, Great Britain, France or Germany, and take active part in the critical point events of European history – the age of Total Wars 1914-1945.

Gameplay of Aggression is built on two levels – strategic and tactical. At the strategic level, the player governs the chosen country, mobilizes armed forces, moves armies and historical figures. When war breaks out, the player plans the course of attacks and organizes defenses; when the two sides meet in battle, the player is transported to a tactical map where he takes control of the army involved in the encounter, as he would in a classical RTS game.

The alternative course of historic events is an important gameplay element: for example, the player can create a Communist or a Nazi government in Great Britain, or, when playing as Russians, unite with Germany against the west.
The objective of the game is to capture all the cities on the strategic map or be the first to develop atomic weapons (historically, it is the atomic bomb that put an end to the age of Total Wars). As soon as any other country, besides the player, develops the bomb, this signals the beginning of cold war and ends the game.
The distinctive trait of the gameplay process of "Aggression" is that the player gets to make all the decisions when running a country. The player has access to politics, economics, technologies, army maneuvers and really feels like a leader of a nation. Despite all the possibilities, running a nation in Aggression remains simple and easy to learn – most controls have flexible settings, which allow the player to set their own level of control on any parameters, or to set up an automatic mode.
