Great turnbased Game! If you want a great game what is like Panzer General than this is great. So I think.
So excuse me, I need to win the World War 2!

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.

I think this is a great game, and with a bit of work, a great W.I.P. Of course, there are part's of this game that are lacking, however as long as you come into it just wanting to have a bit of fun rather than put exceptionally high standerd's on this, it's a pretty fun strategy game. I truley believe with some more work this can easily be an amazing strategy game, maybe one of the best Hex-based too.

Pros: Easy to learn
Play as many countries that were not just "The big ones" such as Turkey, Finnland, Iraq Etc Etc
History Friendly (Unless you feel devilish and decied to follow a different path)
Interesting research aspect
Can be modded quite easily

Cons: Can be very hard, even on Super Easy, depending on who you play as
One map...
No random generated map (Would be interesting to see this appear)
Modding the game can be frustrating as not always will it work

TL;DR: Overall a fun game. Could use some touch up's here and there, but as long as your expectations are not high, can easily provide hours of WW2 fun

The game is easy to pick up but at the same time allows you enough freedom and has enough depth to be enjoyable over many replays. You can take command of any of the countries represented in European theatre of WW2, including the small ones, you can also direct several countries, so if you want to e.g. control all Axis, it is possible. The economy and research are very simple, with the main stress placed on combat. The basic scale is corps size, but you can divide and merge units too, which gives a lot of control. In the spirit of simplicity the game displays actual effective strength, not the size of the unit, so you do not need to calculate things like lack of supply commanders etc. Land combat works really well, even modelling things like sieges. Unfortunately naval combat is a bit obscure and boring (especially sub raiding, with the results hidden in advanced reports and not displayed). Still, the game is really fun, easy to mod and occupies the middle ground between simplistic and very complicated wargames.
