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: look its an old game its not gonna be the best graphics but it does have some great gameplay .if youre not a born genius then the difficulty is ok. it is just like the board game and thats what makes it great. and yes it does work on xp.
Great game....very time consuming! Recommended for fun!

Summary: I highly recommend this game for pre-teens and teens like myself. Not exactly a highly strategical game, Axis and Allies is a fun and easy way to play a RTS game fast. I am 12 years old, and I have been playing this game for about 6 months and it never gets old or boring. Two problems I ahve with the game is that the online experience isn't very good. It is very laggy and the network crashes a lot.
Summary: Nothing like the Board Game - boy was I duped! There aren't even any ships! Naval strategy plays no part in this game! I still don't understand how air power is used either. Crummy game in my opinion - best advice is to find something else. If I am missing something, someone out there let me know! Thanks.
Summary: If you ever talked to my friends they know me for me a first person shooter type gamer. I can't deny it but i like to branch out sometimes. Before i got my xbox 360, this was the game i always played except for halo combat evolved. I was confused with the idea of a strategy game but i got the hang of it real quick. This was my first strategy game and i loved it. I would spend hours playing it because of all the ways to play it.
Summary: I have been playing A&A for about 10 years (as a board game). I also played the Hasbro PC game when I had Windows 95/98. This version of A&A is so unlike the original board game and Hasbro product that I found it incredibly distasteful! Don't waste your money on this PC version. It's a real load of crap. If you have never been exposed to the original board game, you may like it because you won't lnow what you are missing.
