I must say that with all the inaccuracies of the timelines I almost passed on this. Funny how picky we can be when it comes to specifics with regards to history in our war games! When Steam had a 50% sale recently just could not resist in spite of the negative reviews.
The gameplay info is definitely lacking for firsttimers and did not understand about capturing the towers...first game I was destroyed in short order. Then after watching the walkthrough video posted on youtube suddenly everything became much clearer.
I will say this...this game has gotten a bum rap in my opinion from the masses...mostly those who will not buy it in the first place...my opinion there is a lot of good gameplay in this especially for the price point. Its not COH2 but also not the price. If you dont need a heavy duty strategy game but need something to kill a lil time give this a spin..especially if there is a repeat discounted pricing done.
Personally I have spent a great deal more for a lot less enjoyment.
