I find that I usually only write reviews when I don't like a game, but I'm going to force myself to write one for this game, because I feel its one of the best games I've played in this genre.

Firstly, the graphics are attractive and detailed, which I find a plus for a war game. The unit organization is easy to get the hang of, dividing, combining, and renaming armies are quite intuitive. Supply levels are limited to one type, Arms, which helps you focus strategically instead of trying to micromanage many different kinds of supplies for your armies.

Trading is as complicated as you want it to be. You can just put in trade requests, or you can micromanage the trades as more resources come into the market. However, trades will be handed off to other parties automatically, which is a benefit if you don't want to pay particular attention to trading. Although if you don't watch it, you'll find yourself trading with a nation you didn't want to, because they took over some of your 'contracts' so to speak.

Improving your infrastructure is easy and involves upgrading your roads, agricultural improvements, and reducing or expanding your mine output. It keeps it out of your way, and you get easy updates on progress. This is the same as choosing production, it's easy, and there aren't so many options you can get lost.

All of this is a boon to you, because it makes it easier to focus on your strategy and tactics, which to be fair aren't incredibly in depth, but enough that you can benefits for cutting off enemy army supplies (combat penalties), and you can blitz behind combat to disrupt enemy production. Air units can be assigned to support a battle, or you can target reinforcements, producing cities, attack enemy fleets, provide air cover, they are a help but not overbalanced. Combat is a bit abstract with the computer AI sometimes splitting up a huge number of units into small groups, it can be hard to maintain a cohesive front, but generally they will try to overcome your largest troop concentration by refocusing their units, so it isn't uncontrollable.

Historically the game tries to be accurate, with some events coded into the game, but you can have an immense impact on outcomes, even if you play a smaller nation. I've had crazy match-ups where Japan allies with America to fight the German and Soviet menace. You can stall the Nazi menace, or you can join it and help out, you can preempt the entire war and launch an unprovoked attack on the Germans with America, or try flip the world on its head by trying to become an Argentinian Axis super power. The depth and fluidity of the diplomacy system is also simple, perhaps more simple than it should be, but it works well with the rest of the mechanics.

In short, the game is unbeatable at this price, and even if it cost more it's literally pennies per hour of play, and if you get bored of the included scenarios there are a vast amount of user created ones to choose from. Did I mention the game includes a map/scenario editor? It does, and if you wanted to create the Drakon world of S.M. Stirling, go ahead.

Absolutely addicting strategy game. At first I was unsure about the game, seeing as it looked like just another complicated strategy game. But this game's tutorial is amazing, and gives you enough knowledge of everything, without making it even more complicated than it seems. I'd recommend this to my closest friends if they had PCs.
