This is not the game for people who like to take their time. There is a time limit on battles, so you always feel rushed. A lot of strategy gamers like to take their time, but this game has time limits which, from what I can tell reduce what unit types become available to you next map. I hate games where I feel rushed myself.
Also, you have what they call core units. Loose to many and you loose the map. I am still not even sure which units of mine are core. I do know for certain, that this is once again something that is basically game breaking to me. It limits what you want to put on the front lines for fear of loosing it. It is another way the game just feels wrong.
As a for instance, you have to destroy German planes by turn 10 on the first allied map. If you don't do it quick enough you will not get some sort of new unit for the next map. Rush to quick to do it and you are bound to loose a plane or 2, but these appear to be core units. If I destroy the German air force to get the bonus, I usually find I loose 2 core units doing it. Kind of stupid to me.
This game also makles the Nazi campaign easy mode and the Allied campaign hard mode. Not into playing Nazi's or Commies at all. Why not have a selectable difficulty? Why punish people who do not wish to play as truly evil factions? This game was a waste of money for me. A lesson learned and another developer on the blacklist for me. Stay away from this one.
I gave this game a chance. I gave it 14 hours. The positive reviews gave it one hour before they decided they love it. I gave it the benefit of the doubt and lost. Don't be sucked in by positive reviews, when they only played it one hour. One hour is barely getting by the tutorial. I won't give it a minute more.
