Got this game with the Eidos Anthology sale, thought I just play this game to kill some time. Turns out this game is really additive and pretty diffcult even on the easy setting.

I already have this game on disc but I just cannot get it to load these days, it just sits there "installing" but never gets any further. I remember it was always a difficult game to install from the disc with various crashes and hangups and that was before you got to the Windows Live fun and games.So I thought I'd gamble with my money and try it out on Steam. Many of the reviews have talked about problems with the game,but I have to say I've had no problems at all, which surprised me a little or a lot. It downloaded and installed quickly and I've played a few hours now and its fantastic, better than I remembered and with the newer hardware these days it looks and plays great.
I'm glad I took the risk and now I can't pull myself away from the damned game.

An interesting diversion when there is nothing else to play, Battlestations: Midway, allows you to helm ships, and pilot fighter craft, in various World War II Scenario's. The controls are simple, the objectives are straight-forward, and the story is a generic blend of historical information and through the eyes of a fictional sailor/soldier/pilot. It isn't bad, though the graphics are simple, but it probably isn't worth the money as a stand-alone game. There are many other military-styled or historically themed games, which are more dynamic and better quality. My advice, save up for one of those.
