Force Of Resistance is City Interactive's umbrella brand for a number of World War II-themed action games, often differing in concept and developed by unrelated studios. Until the 6th title in the series, the Battlestrike name was exclusive to international releases and was not used in the publisher's home country. In Poland, the games that form the Battlestrike franchise are divided among several different franchises.
Most games in the series have been critically panned, although the most recent entries have garnered a slightly more positive reception thanks to their improved level design and the use of proven technology acquired from Western companies. AI and performance issues, as well as an overall lack of polish remain critical problems
