Summary: Fair Warning - All in all it is a great game, there are some software glitches that you have to get used to and figure out how to work around. When the board game first hit the markets in the early eighties I was the first kid on the street to hustle to the store and bought a copy. I have enjoyed endless hours playing axis and allies. When I saw the computer version I, once again, rushed to the market to buy it. Thoroughly enjoyable.
Summary: This A&A is a real-time strategy game with awesome game play and graphics and a learn as you play tutorial to get you into the line of fire quickly. This game is no pushovers! If you want to win a scenario, you have to use real tactics!
Summary: This game is great, as it is very realistic and many different battles and different generals from different countries..this makes it great.. one thing, Operation Overlord is really hard even in easy mode..alomost discouraging hard.
Summary: I used to play the board game in my younger days, so this pc game was quite fun. I like the history of world war two, so the game is quite fun for me. It's very easy to figure out. The AI, however, is not very strong. Over all, the game should hold your attention for a couple of hours, once you begin to play and the real good battles, takes place on line.
One of my favorite RTS games, even better on multiplayer

Summary: It seems all the people giving this game a negative review are people who have played the Axis & Allies board game and are thinking this is the video game version of it. I've never played the board game but I have been playing RTS and strategy games my whole life and this is one of my favorite. Here's what I love: 1. The fact that when you build soldiers, you get a whole squad of troops and not just one unit such as in Age of Empires. 2.

Summary: Seems like the adults are giving this game a better rating than the kids. Maybe you have to have been raised in the 50's and 60's, having heard all your dad or grandad's war stories to appreciate it. The strategies to win are subtle and endless. Yea, the game guide is about 85% percent helpful, but in a few scenarios, it seemed like they were playing a different version of the game.
Summary: I got to say first off that the graphics are pretty lame. It's mostly just like the board game only on computer. When I first started playing I couln't stop. It's a great strategy game! And if you do like strategy then this is a great game to get, and it won't put a hole in your wallet! I give the game play(out of 1-5) 5 Graphics-2 fun-5 Great game to pass those rainy days!
