The feature that distinguishes Soldiers: Heroes of WWII is the ability to toggle between point-and-click and direct controls. Direct control lets you position units with directional keys and aim precisely with the mouse. Send one of your soldiers to the mortar gun, place another in the tank, then switch to direct control and start blasting. However, you can only move the camera with the mouse, which conflicts with direct-control aiming. Also, we couldn't find any hot keys for selecting units and assigning commands. Blowing up a speeding German motorbike is fun, but you'll only get there if you have the patience to teach yourself how to play.
