OOOO Boy

Amazon Customer, Amazon
5 September 2014
  • Summary: This game really pissed me off. While its true that A&A is the best strategy board game since chess, this game still managed to aggravate me. Whenever I would try to play, the game would slow down after a while. It would run great for a while, but after about 10 minutes there was a 1 or 2 second delay on every click that I made. And after 45 minutes it would just crash.

Solution to the game being slow

  • Summary: I think I've found the solution to the game getting slower and slower - if you turn the music volume in the game to zero and maybe do a restart of the game, you will not have that problem anymore, and the game will be running very smoothly.

OK, but you can get it much cheaper

  • Summary: Game is fun, if older. LOL, you can buy a surplus CD online for $4.95 and use the electronic manual.

The best of "light" wargaming

S. Osborne, Amazon
5 September 2014
  • Summary: It would be easy to berate this game for it's oversimplified handling of WWII. However, I think that's it's biggest charm. Even for the novice, I think it would be relatively easy to learn the ins and outs of this wonderful game. I 've had this one for a long time, and it's one game that I always come back to when I can't find anything else to play. It's followed me from Windows 95 to ME to 2000 and finally XP (yes, it does work in XP; just use compatibility mode).

Bugs...what else?

Amazon Customer, Amazon
5 September 2014
  • Summary: This is the ultimate Axis & Allies, but boy is it bug ridden. I love playing, esp. with friends online, and I keep trying the added scenarios, but have never finished one of these due to some glitch or crash. There is no patch for Iron Blitz yet that I have seen, so if you're the type who loves A&A but hates bugs, wait for the patch!

Excellent game and expansion of an original classic.

Mark Clodi, Amazon
5 September 2014
  • Summary: First things first: This is NOT just an upgrade or expansion for the original Axis and Allies computer game, this is the entire first edition computer game (with some fixes/patches) plus a second CD containing the expansion units and scenarios. Okay now onto the meat of the program. The original game plays much the same as, well, the original game. There is no apparent upgrade to the AI, it is fairly easy to beat the computer even when it is set to the highest level.

Too easy and too many bugs

Amazon Customer, Amazon
5 September 2014
  • Summary: First of all we'll start with the bad news. The game has entirely too many bugs, for example. On the board game when a player uses a battleship to bombard land units and scores a hit the selected unit is not suppose to defend, not in the case of the computer version. Another is when performing an invasion of an unocupied enemy territory it is not necessary to use air units to assist land units in doing so.

Disappointing artificial inttelligence

Andre Moreau, Amazon
5 September 2014
  • Summary: Should I start with the good or the bad news... The bad news: For anyone who has played the board game, saying that the software has artificial intelligence is a compliment. Ok that's harsh, but my 9 year old son has no difficulty beating the computer. And I have not sweated once even when my allies are at the weakest setting and my opponents at the highest. Also, the code is bug ridden. The user interface is good but could use some polishing.

Needs polishing, but who cares?

Dameon, Amazon
5 September 2014
  • Summary: Despite the problems of this game (dim AI, some bugs), it is still the best strategy game I've ever played, next to chess. I've spent countless hours over-the-board, but now I can play with friends in about half the time with out all the mess. We used to constantly run out of chips, or scatter the pieces with the dice, or we'd argue about the rules.
