It's like Men of War but on a larger scale. The opening mission of the Soviet campaign sticks you with 15 BMP-1s with troops of different classes where you are tasked with entering and taking a city, building my building.
Even on the highest setting, the game is rather hit and miss in difficulty. Missions in city areas require much more caution as they can be filled with snipers, units set up with squad weapons or snipers. After multiple retries, the best I could get on the first mission is having half my vehicles disabled or destroyed. Missions in wide open areas depends on either who has vehicles, who finds the other person first and if as the Soviets or as the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan army you have access to artillery barrages.
The games also hampered by rather poor GUI that does not scale in any way as your resolution goes higher. This is a nuisance because the GUI happens to be the only place to check the innumerate amount of keys you have in the game.
It's not a bad game. Besides the GUI, the only reason I haven't finished it since I bought it was last has been that I have habit of sending all my units to their deaths.
