With Battlefield 1 set in World War 1 we thought it would be a good time to take a look at other games that take place in this horrific setting. As it turns out the greatest and most brutal war of them all didn’t get that much attention when it comes to video games. Here’s our top 5 World War I games!

5. Battle of Empires: 1914-1918

Real Time Strategy games based on the First World War are few and far between, but the recent Battle of Empires is quite enjoyable. The game contains multiple campaigns that are devoted to the countries that had a leading part in this worldwide conflict. One of the highlights is the option to play the campaign cooperatively. This way it seems like you are one of the generals on the battlefield yourself!

4. Red Baron

A lot of the games that are based on the First World War are flight games and Sierra’s Red Baron is one of the best. The game, based on the legendary German pilot Manfred von Richthofen, is definitely the most well known. In 1990 this game shook the world with its realistic graphics and great gameplay. They tried to resurrect it back in 2013 on Kickstarter but unfortunately the project went down in flames.

3. Toy Soldiers

In the Xbox 360 Arcade exclusive Toy Soldiers you control one of two armies of miniature toy soldiers on a World War I diorama. Besides realistic battlefield landscapes there are also less intimidating settings like a children’s bedroom. It’s a great mix of action and strategy that lets you control soldiers but also fighter planes and tanks. Too bad the sequels didn’t expand on this amazing concept..

2. Valiant Hearts: The Great War

Ubisoft made a great tribute to the victims of the First World War with Valiant Hearts: The Great War. The game shows a couple of playable characters from both sides of the war and tells an engaging story that unfortunately ends way too soon. The artstyle is beautiful and the game is full of extra trivia that creates a full realistic picture of the war. This should be part of high school education if you ask us.

1. Verdun

Verdun is probably the most authentic shooter set in the trenches of the first world war. The game, named after one of the biggest battles during that time, puts up to 32 players against each other in four game modes that capture the war beautifully. Especially the historically accurate weapons and equipment and the detailed and realistic modeling of injury and gore make this a game that remembers the war in a respectful way.

  20. victo…victoria..VICTORIA…..VICTORIA 2? WHAT? IT'S ONLY END-GAME

  21. 1916 Der unbekannte krieg

  22. Some of these suggestions are just a tad insulting.

  23. Respect for that you put Verdun on first place. Because it's only REAL great war experience.

    Absolutely recommend.
    Delete BF1 and play this game. If you want real world war 1 not political correct bulls*#@t. 😉

  24. I agree with Verdun being #1, it's such a great game, and 90% more accurate than Battlefield 1, people who say it doesn't look good need to play it.

  25. Bruh supremacy 1914 just not even gonna be mentioned

  26. Damn. You were wrong about battlefield.

  27. How drunk can you be to place Valiant Hearts:The Great War on the second place?

  28. We need more WW1 games, and I am sick of those, like only Britain and Germany attended ww1.. And rest of the world not…

  29. Imagine not knowing ww2 more brutal then any wars

  30. When you said battlefield 5 you lost all credibility

  31. If victoria 2 was here then darkest hour should've been too, my first great war game

  32. Valiant hearts is that kind of game wich for the 90 % of the game you think its pretty cool and wonder what will happen next and then you get crippling depression for 6 years to play minecraft for 2 years just to think about your life, Forgetting what you where even sad about. But because you entered in depression you are still sad as you think about everything else.

    9/10, would prefer to be able to use a gun in the game tho.
