This is a very interesting game, it's not super fast, graphics galore but it is an indepth game and the fields of battle are very precise.. I can see myself getting quite addicted to this indeed. it's allot more realistic, true to nature for both commanding and fighting with an open theatre battle ground :D

Love it. Though some units can hit you from outside of the map, and you can't hit them back, especially annoying close to a deployment zone.

Why do the specs read DX9 and then load up DX11 (Which won't play on my system). That's the third game that I purchased (even tho cheaply) that states DX9 or 9.0c and then loads up dx11 and won't work or even forces me to reinstall a download of 9.0c from microsoft to return to what I had. Yes Yes I know I should rush out and buy the latest pc but my system runs 180 odd games Skyrim etc (with 100 mods) perfectly. Seems like people don't take the time to actually read what they have written in the minimum specs. Starts to shrink my shopping, even for the the older stuff! So this isn't a revue sorry just a note of caution in the content!

Pretty much a multiplayer only game as the campaign is very hard (not to mention the first campaign you have to deal with getting nuked, no literally). In single player you're dealing with an Ai with perfect reaction times that is all seeing (as far as fog of war allows it to). This makes a strong opponent and for challenging matches... too challenging. Add to that you can't restart fully setup with your units emplaced, you have to do that every time as well, which is a good five or ten minutes (but does strongly puch you to change tactics, which may help). Makes the campagin just too much of a slog imo.
Lastly, your vital weapons shots like AA missiles are entirely chance rolls which will make you frustrated the longer you play. This is a game of tactics, strategy, and random chance. A slow down button would have been appreciated as well as a pause screen to assess the scene, but no. Pretty brutal if you ask me!
It just could have been so much fun had they toned down the difficulty a bit.

[Linux] Graphical glitches make the game unplayable on Linux, do not buy. I have looked everywhere for a fix, and I am not the only one with this problem. Support for this product from the publisher appears to be discontinued.

The fact that this game is available for Linux in this state is fradulent.
