PR: Get Raging Tiger at $10 Off

Armchair General

Wage The Next Korean War On A Budget!
Shrapnel Games’ Raging Tiger: The Second Korean War Now $10 Off!

Hampstead, NC, 20 October 2006

As tensions mount on the Korean peninsula thanks to the growing lunacy of the Stalinist regime of the North Koreans, who chose to build weapons of mass destruction instead of providing for their citizens, the question for many is what comes next. Is the balloon about to go up, and if so, what would the war look like? Of course with the nuclear genie out of the bottle, would the United States and its South Korean ally head north preemptively? Iraq may have had time to smuggle its WMDs to Syria but with the world well aware of North Korean nuclear capabilities the Dear Leader can’t simply claim innocence.


For anyone with an interest with exploring the military possibilities of a second Korean War Shrapnel Games is the only publisher with a dedicated simulation of such a scenario for Windows, ProSIM Company’s Raging Tiger: The Second Korean War, and for the next two weeks Raging Tiger: The Second Korean War is on sale at the Gamers Front! Normally priced at $44.95, you can now pick it up for only $34.95, and if you live within the United States and choose Priority Mail, shipping is FREE! Act now though, because this special sale will only last until November 3rd!

Raging Tiger: The Second Korean War, developed by ProSIM Company (BCT: Brigade Combat Team, ATF: Armored Task Force, The Falklands War: 1982, and The Star and the Crescent), was originally released in late 2005 for Windows to much acclaim. Kevin Giacobbi of GameZone wrote, "I must stress that for those who strive for this type of game play it is a must have. You really feel like you are commanding the troops and calling all the shots. The game offers so much that anyone who has played these types of games before will probably love it." Jolex Del Pilar of the Video Game Lighthouse Network said, "…Raging Tiger is one of the deepest modern combat strategy games on the market, hands down."

ProSIM Company is comprised of military veterans with decades of experience between them, and it shows in their games (which are also used as military training tools). Raging Tiger: The Second Korean War is not simply some point and click shooting gallery, but a detailed and comprehensive simulation of the modern battlefield unlike any other commercial wargame. From the digital maps used in the game, which are accurate to within meters of the real world locations they represent, to the exhaustive equipment lists and orders of battles of the potential combatants, everything about Raging Tiger is as real as one can get on a home computer.

While set four years in the future, Raging Tiger: The Second Korean War is still an excellent window into what could very well happen within the next few months. Dealing with a US/ROK regime-change of the North, players will have to contend with asymmetric warfare, refugees, rugged terrain, and combined operations as they push north across the 38th parallel. An extensive printed manual and HTML documentation does an excellent job of helping players understand the complexities of this next Korean War.

So let the pundits and talking heads blather on about what could happen while you find out for yourself with Raging Tiger: The Second Korean War for Windows!
