This is a turn based, grand strategic, WWII game that can be played to conclusion over a weekend. If you prefer real time, micro management, or first person shooter games, this one is not for you.

I rate the game 9 / 10.

There are numerous negative reviews about this game and before I purchased the game, I read every single review. Personally, the negaitve reviews are just a big ole bunch of whining. Here's why:

1) The game will crash. So what? Save often or upgrade your PC. FYI autosave happens at the end of every turn.

2) The navigation and unit commands are unusual. So what? Read the manual, its full of useful information. Invest the time to learn how to play the game.

3) The balance of play is unsatisfactory (i.e. USSR tank armies are too strong, German forces are overwhelming). So what? Mod the game to your liking or figure out how to win.


Here's why I LOVE THIS GAME.....

1) It is a labratory of history. What if Operation Sea Lion or Operation Felix were successful? What if Germany developed an atomic weapon? What if the Italians stayed out of Greece? What if Spain entered the war? What if the Warsaw uprising of 1944 held and the city reverted to Allied control in between the German and Red Armies? All of these contingencies can be played out in this game.

2) Great value for the price. Steam just lowered the price too.

3) Takes me back to fond memories of other great grand strategic WWII wargames: Third Reich (AH), Storm Accross Europe (C64) and High Commannd (IBM-DOS). Anybody remember these?

Ok i have played for awhile with this game so here you go. First off yes i have encountered bugs. 1. Game tends to crash if you DON'T apply a 1 second delay to the AI's turns. 2. Also encountered a crash bug while using a question mark in my save game title , such as : Invasion of France ?.......save - click - crash. I posted this one. 3. Others have reported problems using very high resolutions to play ( i personally run 1280x1024 and have no problems with screen/buttons etc,etc) Now for the game itself i haven't had it crash after making these changes and would give the game a solid B-. It's not as hard or confusing and micromanged as Hearts of Iron and just a bit more complex than the old Axis and Allies pc game or board game. So when it's on sale i would recommend getting it but make sure you make a few changes to the options before warring it up.

Thou not comparable to bigger titles, but still i can feel the efforts of developers on making the game simple, yet realistic satisfying. Be noted that this game setting, unlike most WWII games that tries hard to make each nations balance, is more historically, which means most small nations don't get any chance when facing powerful nations such as Germany, Russia.

A first impressions review. I've just played my first game without bothering to do the tutorial or read the manual. Of course I lost, but my point is that it's easy enough to figure out how to play it as you go along. Sure, there's things I still don't understand, but my first impression is that it's a quick, fun and easy game to play, even if you don't fully understand everything that's going on.

Some of the game mechanics are a little unusual, but simple enough once you get used to them. Navies are just set and forget, you send them to a sea area and they conduct battles on their own, so there's no naval manoeuvring as such, which is convenient if you just want to concentrate on the land combat. Multiple units can attack an enemy simultaneously, which is a nice touch.

It's a strategic level game of course, as the title indicates, so you have to deal with research, production, supply and so on. I didn't learn much about them in my first game but they seem straightforward enough. Compared to Hearts of Iron or Making History, this is a tiny game that focuses just on Europe. In spite of its relative simplicity (or perhaps because of), this is a great way to experience the European theatre of WW2 quickly, possibly in one sitting, which makes a nice change from games that take weeks to play.

As is typical of wargames, the graphics are hardly state of the art, but they are quite functional, and the game is highly playable as a result. They actually look better (sharper and clearer) than the screenshots above when you play it. There are options to display the map and units in different ways so you can choose the one you like the best.

Some have said that the interface is confusing but it seems straightforward enough to me. Once you become familiar with it you should have no problems. Others have reported crashes and bugs, but I've encountered none so far (I've been playing it on Win XP). Some also say the music is terrible but it sounds fine to me. Maybe they just don't like the style? You can turn it off of course, if you don't like it.

To sum up, this is a fairly simple (but not too simple) game of WW2 in Europe, which can be played quickly and easily on a smallish map. It would suit anyone who's interested in WW2 and wants to replay the entire war quickly and easily, without the insane depth and complexity of games like HOI. As such I think it's an ideal introduction for newcomers to strategic scale wargames.
