“Warplan dürfte derzeit die beste Wahl in Sachen rundenbasierter Globalstrategie im Zweiten Weltkrieg sein. Ausreichend Tiefgang; dennoch rasch zu erlernen. Schnelle KI. Multiplayer (1vs1) vorhanden.”

Developer Kraken Studios places their emphasis on games that are easy to use, hard to win. WarPlan employs one of the best interfaces to lower micromanagement as much as possible so players can focus on playing and thinking.
