A great surprise by a unknown developer. I bought this game through a Christmas sale one year but didn't play it right away. I finally got around to playing this and I'm extremely glad I did. It's a solid game and it doesn't try to be more than what it is, a great RTS. I thoroughly enjoy the time period in which this takes place and the true history behind the story within the game. It plays really well and I never once had any issues with crashes or glitches. I did also enjoy the option to restart a mission without a penalty against me. I actually "cheated" a little in this game to earn extra gold at the beginning of each mission (editing the .sav file through a hex editor). Even with doing this I fould the game still very challenging but very rewarding. The last mission was diffcult but I feel it really capped off the game well. It was what your army was fighting for throughout the game and it was a very satisfying end to a solid game.
+ Focused on what it does best and didn't try to do to much
+ For a game that is over 5 years old the graphics weren't that bad
+ Challenging but rewarding in the same token
- Enemy sigh seemed to reach further then your own (some missions this was extremely frustrating)
