"Very slow paced game, be aware. No tutorial, but very similar to the panzer general series. Turns can take up to 30 minutes of waiting. Try for a sale."

Soviet Union - a regime, killing people for the Great Socialism. In 1920 the Polish Army stopped them, but this time Soviets are better prepared.
Poland - a regime, trying to survive between two of the greatest powers of Europe. They say the most handsome and brave cavalryman are in the Polish Army.

I am not often the person to NOT recommend games, but this game I can NOT recommend because the AI turns are too long, no tutorial, the fact you're just thrown directly into the game without knowing anything about the game at all just entirely ruins the gaming mood for me. I just think that if this game is to actually MAKE it as a good game, it needs serious improvements in a lot of area's. That's basically the whole story on why I can NOT recommend this game. Good day, thank you for reading & God Bless you folks.

0.7 Hours spent trying to get the game to work. Try and use compatability settings in Win8.1 results in a steam API error. Try running in windowed mode and it doesn't load the game at all, just hangs on the splash screen. Run in full screen and when you start a game it CTD when the load bar fills up.

Game for hardcore strategists that know what Panzer General series is. However, read reviews before you buy it so you can avoid disappointment. I give it thumbs up because it has potential and with some more effort it can be good.

+ detailed units (regiments of about 3000 soldiers)
+ detailed map
+ historically correct (Soviet Union in alliance with Nazi Germany; Slovak, Hungarian and Lithuanian units)

- feels hopeless if you want to play Poland, feels boring if you try to play Germany
- Slovakia with todays Russia flag is historically correct but confusing (perhaps use the Tiso flag?)
- graphics are waaaay to go (hex tiles in XXI century should use some better techniques - tile size should be larger than hex size and could use transparency on edges to blur with adjacent ones, multilayer hexes are very helpful and easy way to make graphics better, rivers should not bent with 60 deg angle and should not look like ribbons)
- map seems to be stretched in north-south dimension (typical mistake with hex maps?)
- gameplay... it could be a chapter on its own:
- learning curve, where the hell is learning curve? oh, there it starts, in the blue skies
- it takes ages before computer finishes move (anyone cares?)
- beside the one huge map and single campaign there should be some smaller, subset maps for single battles and skirmishes (game could be much more interesting at this level and it would be easier for players to start)
