This is a tank-based mission, and you'll be using the excellent British Mark V Tank (aka Black Bess) to blast enemies to shreds across Ribecourt, France. There's a nice mix of satisfying vehicle and on-foot skirmishes throughout this mission, but the end chapter is all-out tank-on-tank annihilation.

 

There's even a section where you have to stealthily infiltrate enemy camps and steal spark plugs. It adds a nice little change of pace to things, and you can ride a horse to boot.

 

The most enjoyable part of this mission is just blowing things up. I'm in awe of how many things you can destroy in this game; it feels like the very environment itself can be torn apart. You'll be rolling over trees, blasting entire buildings to rubble, smashing massive windmills to bits, and massacring troopers left and right.

 

 

The feeling of invincibility is made even stronger by the fact that you can easily repair your tank at any moment, somewhat cheapening gameplay and making it feel artificial.

 

Again, that sense of realism is sacrificed for an enjoyable arcade-style experience, and that's basically what War Stories is all about.
