An awesome game. I like to take my time, fortify my base, build up my forces before i take on the enemy. Something i find this game encourages. You do not want to rush things, because once the map shifts you could be facing a new enemy from a new direction.
And if you just lost most of your fleet or aircraft taking that earlier objective in a rush, the enemy will whittle you down. They might not get you on the first wave, but by the 5th they'll be through your defenses lighting your factories on fire, taking away your ability to rebuild the army you had. But if you took your time, that first army can hold the line, while you build a second to tear the enemy a new hole.
It's not a visually pleasing powerhouse, but it renders the units and explosions nicely. The story is fairly standard, as such games go. Pick a side and fight the other sides, who are evil. (off course pick an other side and you're old side is just as evil to them) Eventually leading to a climactic battle.
