The PC game "World War 1" allows players to take control of troops from three sides of the titular conflict in a struggle to relive the battles of the war that changed the early 20th Century. The game is a real-time strategy title, meaning that the onus is on making strategic decisions in a fast-changing battlefield environment. While RTS games are not as graphics-intensive as action titles, there are still hardware requirements to run the game.
