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?

In short, don't! There are too little content for its price. I can buy two Paradox games of much greater capabilities with the same amount of money. And I suggest you to look the other way, as well.

Now, what is it all about? WW2 in Europe, of course. But the title is not quite right, though. From where I stand, the "Strategic" elements in this game are it's weakest spot, and you know what is the strongest? Well, the strongest will be the interface. There are not much to do but to build units, send them to direct battles and... idling for more resources. There are a "Diplomacy" button in the hud, yes... but forget about it! It is useless because there are no chance you'll get Diplomacy Points until the point you don't need them already. I mean, there are really exist a possibility to play for no-big countries like Greece or Romania, or even Ireland! But there are not a chance you'll change the course of history by playing one of them.

Game mechanic is quite simple, but that's not so good trait, as you can think (as I thought buying this lame piece of code). Every country has "Resources" and a counter how fast they restock. Those "resources" in fact a single digital, and it can only be improved by conquering other lands. And if you choose Ireland , well... grab some popcorn, the only button you'll ever need is "End turn". That's a bugger, really, as there are dozen f2p facebook games, where you can actually build up your power, improving digits of manpower, morale, etc... And I'm not talking about "Hearts of Iron" or even "Civilization". This "Strategic War in Europe" in fact is dumber than f2p facebook games!

About changing the course of history there. Let's suppose you're playing for France, and destroyed Nazi for good, defeat Germany in the early 1941. Italy becomes the leader of Axis, you defeat them as well... but at this time, Bulgary joins the Axis and becomes the leader of Axis, after defeat of Italy! Bulgary! Yeah, Very Realistic game mechanic, which reacts properly on every change in alignment. My Back!

I'm not done speaking about mechanics, sorry for my rudeness. So, you have "resources" digit, it will raise with time passing, while you still have some land on your side of border. With those resources you buying units (ground, air and naval), and you can also spend some to hurry the researchers. A vague relate to Paradox titles, those researches are "infantry", "tanks", "air", "subs", "naval" and "nuclear", with tiers from 0 to 5 (although nuke has only 0/1 tier). Now! You have some units from the start, you can build more, you can transport them via railroads or boats from one end of Europe to another... in theory. In fact, you'll probably not ever use railroads or embarkment, unless you'll choose USA or England (neither of them is recommended). Basically, you just get what you have, and march on enemy lines, with some common-knowledge maneuvers, like to cut Maginot line through Belgium, And even there, in the armies basic management, we have a big disadvantage. The map is SMALL! Forget about limitrophes like Estonia! Christ, the POLAND has only 2! cities there, Warsaw and Lvov! And there are an achievement, to defend Warsaw for 5 turns. How?! The Germany always start first, so by the time you get the wheel, there are only two white-and-red ground units, so that's impossible to hold even two! rounds for Poles, no matter what you'll do (unless you'll cheat it some weird way).

Okay, let's summarize:

+ easy to start with, mere interface, obvious goals

+ the events in the game goes along with the history books, well, except in more primitive view. Much more primitive and one-way scripted, really.

- the major strategy is always build some tanks and rush to enemies cities. No artillery, very basic usage of air forces, almost useless fleets... And forget about spies and diplomacy!

- the only chance to get more resources is to capture some cities, and capturing them feels... no, it doesn't provide any feelings, you're just pointing square A (your tank) above square B (any city). Booring!

- the game is weak as strategy, but the achievements... well, they're the worst thing that game have, if not minding the price. Like to build 1K submarines, or infantry units. While game prompts, that it will count that thousand of units along all sessions, in truth, you need to finish that in one session, or the counter will reset. And there are absolutely no chance to have enough resourses to build that many. And I'm not even speaking about nukes there... To be frank, there is no legit way to complete achievements. Some use SAM about that game, and I can't really blame them, even if I hate SAM myself.

- and what finished me, is the backup the devs give to the complaints. Just look at the community hub about the game, read some discussions, to make your own impression.

Mark 4.2/10 - "lame". I recommend you to stay with Hearts of Iron and Civilization titles, for way better experience. And if you are up to something different, find two KOEI games: "Operation Europe: Path to Victory" and "PTO: Pacific theather of operation". Despite the fact they were made more than 20 years ago, they a Way deeper as strategies (than this "Strategic War in Europe") and in terms of visuals, well, almost the same thing.
