“A traditional hex-based wargame of unusual elegance, one that is perfect for genre newcomers but equally satisfying to veterans."

About the Game

Unity of Command is an innovative and refreshing operational-level wargame that covers the entire 1942/43 Stalingrad Campaign on the Eastern Front. Playable from both the Axis and Soviet perspective, it strives to recreate the strategy, the forces involved and the general tension of that crucial period in World War II.

Experience the highly fluid, enormously large battles of maneuver in a turn-based strategy setting. Take command in this mobile, back-and-forth sort of war where logistics and poor weather are often the decider, and defeat and victory are sometimes just a mile, or a day, apart.

This game is a nice surprise! I would have overlooked it if it was not on sale, but I am glad have it now and it is defininitely worth it at full price.

This game has been made by only 2 guys, but the quality is excellent. Even though this is not an easy game and has more depth then it looks at first glance it is easy to get into the game thanks to a good tutorial and intuitive UI.

If you like Stratego and chess then I highly recommend to pick this game up! (be sure to get the 'red turn' dlc too, because it has more beginner scenario's).

Oh and it also has a nice scenario editor/builder, multi-player and hotseat option too!

If you've ever whiled away an hour or nine playing 'hex wargames' -- those things that a great many gamers used to play back in those dim, dark and distant years BC (before computers), the ones with paper maps, cardboard cut-out unit counters, thick rulebooks, charts and random number generators (RNGs) called 'dice': you're in for a treat with Unity of Command (UoC).

UoC: Stalingrad Campaign elicits in me strong memories of many such happy hours playing 'Battle for Stalingrad' by Simulations Publications Inc (SPI) back in my teens. I used to lose to my mate Roland -- a lot. But I always came back for more :)

Of all the games I've played recently, Unity of Command has possibly the best potential for true longevity -- if it develops into a framework for folks to make their own wargames.

This game is a nice throwback to panzer general and other hex games with its own unique mechanics. I recommend it to everyone.

A solid intermediate entry into logistical and strategic wargaming, with both beautiful and clean assets and a foreboding soundtrack. Yes, this might appear to be like many other board or video game strategic wargames. What separates Unity of Command, however, is the cat and mouse aspects of defending your own supply line while simultaneously attacking your opponents, to prevent your troops from running out of supplies (ammo, clothes, food, one would assume) while taking away these necessities from your opponent, giving you the advantage. Without saying much more and probably repeating what others have said, UoC is one of those games that appear simple on the surface -- youu load the deceptively small game, play through the tutorial, and then load up the campaign or scenarios hitting the ground running -- but after your first and second round you begin to realize that it will be hard to master. Sure, the initial handful of scenarios are easy, even for the relative genre newbie, but the difficulty begins to quickly ramp up, never treating you with kids gloves. It is important to note that the game is difficult without being unfair, or using cheats to compensate for lackluster AI: you won't find those problems here. All of the aforementioned, should be noted, sits pleasantly under one of the most pleasing UI design choices in any wargame I've seen. Like the game itself, the art direction and UI can be summed up as simple, effective, and beautiful. This relatively inexpensive game will serve you with many hours of fun for a long time. Definite thumbs up from moi! :)
