An absorbing WW2 strategic game, complex and complete, but not at all complicated and so intuitive that it becomes very very easy to play. Its historic realism is so amazing that you actually feel you are back in 1939. Can you believe that it includes pictures and profiles of all the leaders, ministers, and most famous officers of that time? and this goes for more than one hundred countries?
You will manage your economy, increasing your industrial capacity in order to have the means to build an army, investigate new technologies and raise funds for diplomacy and trade. You will dismiss ministers, change your national policies, puppetize other countries, declare war and negotiate peace.
You will give different orders to your military units and decide what, when and how they shall attack. Supplies and reinforcements are essential but you will never have to micromanage these aspects.
Although battles are automatically sorted they may become a little bit confusing, but you can always slow down the game, or even pause it, and give your orders without stress.
The graphics are adequate to this kind of game and the music is beautiful.
If you like the genre this one is a must.
