In a word, not worth the time spent playing it, much less what it cost to buy it.

One of the worst game I have played so far. Played the first mission. Couldn't really make head or toe. Then head to the tutorial. Tutorial was good, but I was stuck on the third one where it want me to buy/build armory. Which I did, but the game stuck there. Can't quit can't do anything except to buy more stuff till I ran out of money.

"The first 10 minutes of the game where amazing"

- Terrain has no effect on fighting skills (attack, defence), desert, open field, jungle, hills, trees its all the same
- You are just allowed to play one faction (same units all the time)
- Infantry and tanks are useless, just spam paks. They are the strongest land unit.

But its still a good Game, had no crashes or bugs at any time.
If you are new in this kind of games, its ok. (maybe 10€)
Otherwise, when you are expecting something like Panzer General (haha) or Advance War, forget it !

The game looks in the beging not that much fun and quite hard, but when you learn a little about it, you discover that you have to use a lot of strategie to defeact the game and have a lot of fun planning your next moves and best actions. Unfortanely, there are some bugs quite annoying, but when you get used to then you learn how to avoid them and make the best of the game.
I really recommend it if you really are looking for some good straregy game.

Not terrible, but a far cry from things like Allied Corps. If you're completely out of WW2 strategy games I'd say go for it, but if not you can do a lot better for the money.

The game is pretty good, but has some issues. Looks like it was rushed into release with all that it brings. Technical issues (seems like the game suffers from a memory leaks, as it started to lag/freeze and act unresponsive after an hour or so into playthrough) and poor AI being the most critical. Some gameplay mechanics and GUI are also not thought through well enough. On the bright side - game looks really well, nice GUI and unit textures, maps look great, game is really appealing visually. It also has some interesting gameplay mechanics, like carriers, naval warfare, supplies.

The game is certainly good, but it could use some additional 3-4 months of polishing and debugging.

Lots of potential, but it was rushed out the door pre-beta to get it on the virtual shelves by Christmas. So we got to beta test it, only to find the devs stopped fixing bugs around February. Some are real show stoppers, some are just annoying; visit the forums if you want to see a few pages' worth. I should point out there is absolutely no realism here; it's a toy, nothing more. Modding might be able to breathe some life into it, but at this point it's obvious they've washed their hands of it.

This is deep strategy with an eye for detail. In a lot of ways it's like a turn-based RUSE, but with much more realism and time to think. I have read a lot of negative reviews that say the game is too hard. Oh, poor babies! You think invading Axis Europe was easy? Hell no! So you can't take out the shore batteriess with ships or artillery? Maybe that's exactly what they were desiogned to resist! Oh no! What ever will we do? How about you use your dive bombers? Now there's an idea! This is exactly what makes the game great! You absolutely HAVE to rule the skies before even attempting a land-based advance. My only real criticisms are: management of your aircraft squadrons is a bit messy, and generally a warning needs to be displayed if aircraft are low on fuel. Also, There needs to be a warning that tells you if you have forgotton to move and fire with any unit when you press 'next turn'.There has been a lot of talk about the following exploit: You can send in one unit followed by a group of ten, attack the enem,y with the lone unit and lose it to their counter attack. Then you can defeat the enemy unit with your ten and recieve no counter-attack. This is not a massive problem, but it xcould be fixed by allowing units infinite counter-attacks (ammo permitting), with exponentially decreasing effectiveness.

Peoiple that are having trouble with operation Torch should think themselves lucky they are not trying to invade mainland Italy. Wow. Once you crack it, though, it's very reqarding. This game is a 'just one more turn' epic that will devour weeks of your life. Well worth every cent!

I rarely play titles like these, i have dabbled with XCOM and i was pleased with that.
Of course Tank Operations is not in the same league as XCOM and any other high budget Turn Based Strategy, the strategic style of play is certainly there, and with an addictive nature indeed.
Once you start playing the game you forget the retro art style and the old school nostalgia this title gives you, and suddenly find yourself thinking "did that really take that long?" resulting in "DAMN i burnt the Chicken!"

Suffice to say, I’m happy being hooked to an addictive game, not many games have such a simple and essential ability to be addictive
