I am very surprised. I just bought this game for £2.79 and I bought it with quite low expectations, but when I started playing I was positively surprised. This game might be the strategy game I was always looking for. It's very realistic, especially when it comes to military tactics and strategy. You can actually use the stuff you would use in reality, in this game !!

This game has a huge variety of units, a big variety of nations ( Poland,France,USA,UK,Soviets,Germans ; did I miss some ?> ) and as far as I know, quite some massive campaigns + extra missions.

When your units engage enemy units in to a firefight, it sounds and feels like you are having eyes on a real firefight, the sounds and way the units advance are just perfect.

My recommendation: EVERYONE, this game is not expensive at all, and nobody will make a big lost buying it. This game will be a lot of fun for REAL strategists who seriously want to have some brainwork going during gameplay, but this game might also be a good start for everyone who has never played strategy games before. All I can say is, GO for IT .

It works! Great game that will keep you occupied for hours at a time! The graphics are not the best, but the gameplay is just great, same as the challenging AI.
