Like many of you i grew up with this series so it's a must have in my collection.
For people new to it, i guess i can sum up the gaming experience thusly:
-move character/have him do some action
-pray he doesn't die/get caught
-save

Repeat until end game.

This is a classic that pretty much spearheaded the real time tactics genre and for some of its more dated aspects, such as the low resolution and clunkily designed UI, still holds up today.
