  • 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. It is hard to recommend it even though the multiplayer mode is a somewhat (and possibly only) redeeming factor.

Axis & Allies: RTS

The Gamers Temple
28 May 2005
  • Excerpt: Axis & Allies is based on the classic board game that was an abstract take on World War II on a global scale, similar to the even more classic game Risk. What is not so obvious though is that the game is in a way also based on the computer strategy game Kohan II. This is not much of a surprise considering that Axis & Allies’ developers also developed that game.

  • Conclusion: A game that won't appeal to the hardcore WWIIers in the audience because it takes liberties (including having an Axis campaign that plays out more like a series of hypotheticals than anything else), won't really appeal to the board-game fiends, again because of liberties taken, and won't really appeal to the rest of us because it just happens to be so average. There's a lot about Axis & Allies that just doesn't work. As such, look elsewhere for outlets for your bucks.

  • Conclusion: Overall Axis & Allies is an okay looking, okay playing, and okay sounding game. Nothing really stands out or pulls you into the game. I’d say look else where for your RTS thrills unless you’re really into your King Tigers and Panzers.
  • Pros: A different style of resource management.
  • Cons: But it doesn’t really do anything different to distinguish itself from the crowd.

  • Summary: „Axis & Allies“ ist eines der Spiele, die kaum einer braucht. Das Genre der Echtzeitstrategie im Zweiten Weltkrieg ist Anno 2004 voll wie kaum ein anderes. Der Versuch der Entwickler, dieses Manko mit einigen neuen Ansätzen wieder wett zu machen, läuft ins Leere, weil es relativ egal ist, ob man 100 Einheiten oder 30 Verbände produziert, wenn man letzten Endes jedes Gefecht mit schierer Masse gewinnen kann.
  • Pros: Verbände statt Einzeleinheiten, Zusätzlicher Weltkartenmodus
  • Cons: Laue Grafik, Unspannendes Missionsdesign

  • Conclusion: De, der husker, hvordan det var at udkæmpe store slag, ja en hel verdenskrig, hjemme på stuebordet, vil vide, at Axis & Allies er en regulær klassiker. Det er derfor på ingen måde overraskende, at striden mellem Aksemagterne og de Allierede styrker forsøges overført til computerskærmen. I 1998 leverede Hasbro en udgave, som meget loyalt - lidt for loyalt, vil mange mene - gengav stemningen fra brætspillet.
  • Pros: Nytænkning af en brætspilsklassiker.
  • Cons: Til gengæld kan AI’en dårligt siges at være tænkende. Desuden er historiske fakta og sammenhænge stærkt forvrængede.

  • Summary: Andra världskriget är i spelvärlden något av den mest exploaterade tiden. Antalet spel som utspelar sig under dessa våldsamma dagar under 1900-talet kan inte räknas längre och fler spel kommer. Detta gör att spel som släpps med detta tema måste ha något nyskapande och intressant om de inte ska dränkas bland alla andra. Om du vill veta huruvida Atari och Timegate har knåpat ihop en kioskvältare eller en budget-produkt skall du läsa här nedanför. Schnell!
  • Pros: Intressant bassystem, Moral och erfarenhet, Sticker ut lite från övriga WW2-RTS
  • Cons: Lite mycket köttkvarn, Formationerna blir snabbt röriga, Den dynamiska kampanjen haltar

  • Excerpt: Okay jeg indrømmer med det samme… jeg har aldrig rigtig spillet Axis and Allies, men jeg har i en brandert engang observeret et par mennesker spille det på universitetet og for mig virkede det mere som en form for Risk end en form for krigsspil… men den slags skal der jo også være plads til.
