Expert Review

  • 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.

Incompetent artificial intelligence and some weak gameplay mechanics hamper what could have been an interesting real-time strategy take on the popular board 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

  • 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...

  • 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 er et helt greit spill. Når det er bygget over et så velkjent konsept skal det litt til for å tilføre spillet overraskende elementer, og det har heller ikke spillets utviklere klart.

  • 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.

  • 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.
  • 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.
