Iron Storm, known as World Advanced Daisenryaku: Koutetsu no Senpuu (ワールドアドバンスド大戦略 ~鋼鉄の戦風~) in Japan, is an entry in the Daisenryaku series released for the Sega Saturn. It is one of the few games in the series to be released outside of Japan, though it did not see a release in Europe.

Gameplay

Iron Storm is a World War II themed turn based strategy game, similiar in vein to SSI's Generals series. Players will take command of Nazi Germany, Japanese Empire or United States and wage war against the enemy forces in historical battles. Similar to other games in the Daisenryaku series, if players attain impressive victories, they might change the outcome of the war and end up commanding their forces in hypothetical scenarios such as Invasion of British Isles or Operation Coronet.
