"There are times when fear drops below the threshold of the mind; never beyond recall, but far enough from the instant to become a background. Actions are less thought than done and only in hindsight do you realize the horrors you have witnessed and caused. A kilometer from our first DZ, I felt a bullet whiz past my chin and saw my comrade,whom I had known all through training, absorb the impact of an RPG as small arms fire cut through the men behind him. I knew suddenly and forever that this was war, and I was in it."

WWII: Recon is a map of modern warfare for Myth II: Soulblighter. It requires intricate micromanagement and offers stunning realism.

Situation:

There is enemy action in the neutral zone! We need intel. Grab your gear and get to the plane, you're going in!

Your Units:

Soldier - "Move it out maggot!" A well trained military man bearing a bayonet, automatic rifle and hand grenades. Never underestimate the damage a single man can do.

Field Cannon - Artillery support for your ground troops. Maybe having all our men hiding behind the same tree, was a 'bad' idea.

The Maps:

  • S-2 - A two team map allowing Terries, Captures, CtF, BoP, KoH, LMotH, Assassin, StB, and Body Count.
  • S-4 - A four team map offering the same game types.
  • Elimination - twelve starts, one Soldier each. Just you against the big bad world. Watch your back, Jack. Play this blind, I dare ya. (Does not offer BoP or CtF)
  • Patrol - twelve starts, a three man patrol at your disposal. Even with only three Soldiers you will have your hands full. (Does not offer CtF or BoP)
Difficulty:

There are MANY subtle changes on each map with changes in difficulty. In brief, Cannons and RPG's are limited or non-existant in Timid or Simple, and Legendary offers more weapons, objectives, and MedKits (Look for "Medical Supply Crates" in Elimination and Patrol).

New Features and Highlights:

  • Two completely new units, the Soldier and Field Cannon.
  • New Flag and Ball scenery.
  • Multi-cultural units.
  • New sampled sounds.
  • New weapons (and the stains they leave).
  • New explosions.
  • Natural terrain with unlimited passability. Your tactics are only limited by your situation and imagination.
  • Overhead Map view is limited to the area you have explored, allowing you to pick up grenades and customize troops in privacy.
  • You can throw grenades and special weapons at anyone, even your friends, so make SURE you know what you are doing.
  • Entirely new feel, this is not the Myth you are accustomed to.
Ahhh.. still aren't convinced? Take a look at some screenshots.

Now move it OUT, Soldier!
