I gave it five stars. Does that mean this is a game everyone would enjoy? No, I don't think so. You only have to look at one of the earlier reviews to find out why. In order to like this game you really need to enjoy hex-and-counter types of wargames very much. If you do, and if you have any interest for the eastern front, this is THE game for you. If you don't you won't like it, no matter how good it is.
It will take a bit of getting used to, as the user interface is not as intuitive as it could have been. I think it's basically a keyboard operated game, with a layer of mouse interfacing laid over it, rather than a game that was designed to be operated by mouse from the start. Having said that, the interface is quite stable, and with the manual at hand you'll quickly find what you need. I had to look up how to break down divisions into regiments, and how to rebuild them; how to use rail engineers to convert Soviet gauge lines to German size ones; how to reassign units to other HQ's, and how to conduct a deliberate assault instead of the regular quick attack. Having figured this out, I could play the game to victory.Read more ›
