Summary: Very nice World War II RTS game. I especially like the global WWII mode, in which you take control of Germany, Japan, Britain, America, or Russia and win the war with the opposing factions, which are predefined and cannot be changed, so it's not like HOI in that regard. There are two campaigns, one for the Axis and one for the Allies, which are also quite nice. Quite nice.
Summary: Axis & Allies has been known for the past 20 years the WWII board game. Now it has been developed into a kick ass RTS as far as I?m concerned. This game isn?t your board game anymore, it has become a real concrete game Atari and TimeGate can hang their hat on There are several modes of play from which gamers can choose from. The first is campaign mode, 24 complete missions on both sides of the war, 12 missions as the Allies, 12 missions as the Axis.
Summary: The premise of this game had a lot of potential. The notion of participating as commander of the armed forces in the greatest and most epic battle of humankind's recent history surely captured the imagination of RTS gamers, WWII enthusiasts, and fans of the original board game alike. Regretfully, the developers were not able to realize this potential. Sadly, the game is dissapointing.

Summary: I have a much more detailed review of the original board game already published on here, so I am not going to get into the details of how this game is played. I will stick instead on topics of how this differs from the board version, and changes made. This is a game that us A&A players have been screaming about for years. It was eagerly anticipated, and for a lot of us, it was a kind of a let down.
Pros: easy to learn, Internet and LAN play, hotseat play for multiple people on one computer
Cons: Computer AI sometimes poor, 640x480 resolution can be to much
