Axis & Allies

Strategy Informer
14 October 2005
  • Excerpt: One of the most popular themes in computer gaming is the second world war. The shear scope and drama of a conflict that spanned the globe, and still has repercussions to this day, has endless appeal to legions of game players. With so popular a topic, there is no shortage of titles based on the war.

  • Excerpt: I’m not the biggest fan of Real Time Strategy Games. So when I came across A&A, I had my doubts about the game. While installing it, I prayed that it wouldn’t be just another StarCraft clone (you know, Harvest then Build, then Harvest then Build, then Fight then Harvest).

  • Summary: TimeGate did a great job with Kohan II and it thoroughly deserved its 8.5 rating but you'd never guess that Axis & Allies was using the engine that Kohan II did because it provides such an over simplified and sometimes overly dumb gameplay which isn't particularly enjoyable to play.

  • Conclusion: Wrap-Up: There are plenty of reviews out there slamming Axis & Allies for many things, large and small. I disagree for several reasons. There is a certain amount replay in this game though you will find that there is none or campaigns once you have gone through both sides successfully.

  • Conclusion: than you make. If you use more resources than you are generating, your monetary income will decrease and can go into a negative creation. Money is what is needed to build any buildings, to research any technologies and to create any units.

Axis and Allies Goes Post Modern

  • Excerpt: When I was first exposed to the Axis and Allies board game from Milton Bradley, I was instantly hooked. Of course being in middle school at the time meant that I had a lot of free time, so many neighborhood tournaments were held in my basement and I spent hours upon hours looking at a fully set-up...

  • Excerpt: Popular simple boardgames seem to be hard to port to computers. Two attempts at computer versions of Risk made hardly a ripple on the market. The first computer Axis & Allies was a tremendous flop and the Iron Blitz Edition stand-alone patch didn’t fare any better.

  • Excerpt: If at first you don’t succeed, maybe you should hang it up. Atari and Timegate are still trying to make a classic boardgame a success as a computer game.

  • Summary: In addition to being a new real-time strategy game, Axis & Allies is a cult classic board game that pits the Axis powers against the Allied powers at the height of World War II. The new computer game is not the game of old, however.
  • Pros: Multiplayer games can be fun
  • Cons: Terrible AI, Weak campaign, World War II mode is a pushover, Balance issues
