Well yes, it is pretty rubbish particularly in this day and age. Then again, in this day and age, where Triple A titles with Triple A price tags are left wanting, we tend to turn to the smaller titles for satisfaction at a more acceptable price.
If you hanker for a bit of tank-rushing fun, with an RPG element (upgrading weaponry and vehicles, though not pre-existing ones - a nod to reality) and advancing yourself in rank then you can enjoy this ;little title particulalrly for it price now at 75% off.
There have been some patches, including the ability to remap keys (but not mouse buttons), and some degree of options (resolution and Low-Mid-High quality graphics) but don't expect tank treads left on soil, dynamic shaows, HDR or bloom - this is bare bones WWII tank rushing.
Some have compared this wioth "Order of War", which is not even close in comparison, or "Company of Heroes 1&2" (once again, not even close). I'd say more something from the now defunct Westwood studios' "Dune 2" in 3D with a storyline plucked from Eugen's "Act of War" or the never-to-be-equalled Massive's "World in Conflict".
All in all, I'd give this a solid 7/10 and for the price, particulalrly on special, it's a top time waster on the surreal battlelfields of an alter WWII timeline.

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

Hard game and a bit crazy.
You attack a base with 100 tanks.
100 tanks die.
7/10

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.
