I have been playing PC RTS games for the past 15 years or so. I did purchase this game and was very disappointed at first. I contacted the developer and made several suggestions because I do see a lot of potential for the game. A patch was released with some suggestions that I suggested including increasing the zoom level of the game and several other enhancements. The game is definitely worth the money now in my opinion for $15.00.

The developer listens and is making the game better and will be implementing more updates in the near future. If they make this game moddable, which I believe they will, and enhance the graphics a bit more (vechicle tracks) which I believe they will, it will be an outstanding fun WW II RTS game. The game is very playable now and fun to play. Once other enhancements are implemented it will be a best buy at this price. The maps look great and the game play is very good. I only play scimmage, so the AI is very important for me and its plays well.

When it first came out no, but now I say yes, buy this game.

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.

Units are sluggish and unresponsive, pathfinding is absolutely terrible, units all use the same american voices for every country, the different countries themselves only look different but all play the same with the same stats, interface is confusing at best.
even at 90% off its not worth it. and the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ menu music is still playing after the game was closed and uninstalled.

I recommend that you don't buy this crap
