Game wouldn't start, but kept wanting to reboot the PC after installing some drivers. I have Windows 10 and a fairly new hardware setup that should easily be able to play it. Also there is no official game webpage and patches could not be found.

There isn't too much original about this game and there are plenty of other WW2 RTS titles out there, so why choose this one? Well, because it's great, frankly. First up, the graphics are superb; tanks recoil as their guns fire, infantry crumple melodramatically and explosions fill the screen. Even at high zoom, the detail is still there. OK, so graphics aren't everything but here they really help create a sense of involvement.
In addition, you won't be able to finish this game overnight if you're playing on medium or above - you need to plan ahead and co-ordinate your forces effectively. Charging a line of 88's will soon leave you with a lot of broken tanks; use a scout to pinpoint them, then use your artillery to pick them off. Problem with Tigers? Get behind to exploit the weaker armour there. It's this kind of attention to detail that makes the game.
Instead of choosing one side or another, you play the Germans up until Alamein, then you take the Allied commanders' role during the push to Tunis. This lets you see the advantages and disadvantages of both sides. But here's the twist: you get to pinch the opposing sides' armour if you can disable it! This is especially handy in the early stages of the campaigns when you are building up your forces. By the end, the core of my Allied force was five Tigers! At the close of each level, you get to keep any vehicles you're in control of and carry them through, gaining experience all the while. Depending on how well you perform, you may also access special units that are faster or better armoured than their standard versions.
The game's not perfect, though. The sound is generally good but the music gets extremely annoying after a while. In the interests of playability, you get access to modern armour far more quickly than in reality, which may bother some purists. And the dodgy backstory about a love triangle (square?) involving a spy and a German, French, British and American officer is best ignored! But none of this really matters. The reason this game gets 5 stars is its inherent payability. It's a long time since I've lost so much time to my PC!

This game is much better than sudden strike and blitzkrieg(although probably wont last you as long to play it), basically just for the ausome graphics. To play this game thou you do need a good PC, i recommned at least 512 RAM, i aslo had some problems with the sound, but probably not the games fault. The missions are great as they are very varied. The bad thing about this game is not so good pathfinding and a lack luster mutiplayer. But if you like yiur RTSs and are interested in ww2, then this game is for you!

Trouble loading and installing it with many error messages. Eventually managed to get two scenarios to load and found the game so bogged down in detail and instructions to units that it made it a stressful play rather than gaming. I am a devoted WW2 fan but not of this one.

It's a fine game, but a little short...
The graphics, even on my Geforce2 are nice and the explosions great. The story is good, but the campaign is very short and there are not many options to play different scenarios on skirmish mode. But it's a nice game for those interested on WW2 RTS games...
