Summary: I bought this for my boyfriend on his birthday and he adores it! The game is based on the board game and is not like the boardgame. It is more like Warcraft in it's style of inventory, soliders and basic strategy. Don't buy this game expecting the boardgame.
Summary: I purchased this game for my husband and he LOVES it. He said it is very challenging and he gets caught up in the storyline as well. He would recommend this game to anyone who likes to play simulated games & likes games that are challenging.
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: I purchase this game for the secodn time as I wanted to be able to play it between two computers with my son in the LAN multiplayer mode and is awesome after playing it against the machine for quite a long time now we have a new way to play it which is different from playing through internet with unknown players. I really recomend this game, it has a lot of detail and is easy to use. It may not be the ultimate strategy game but it is still a very good game to play.
Summary: Okay, this game is hands down one of the best games I've ever played. The graphics are magnificant, the plot, well the plot follows real history, but the axis domination plot is relevant. They don't try to go crazy with what the axis could do. All the details are accurate, it has great replay value because of the map editer and the WWII game, where you play as any of the five powers and control the out come the way you want it.
Summary: This is a great game for kids and adults you just need to be a fan of RTS's (Real Time Strategy). The people that have reviewed this are obviously turn-based fans (The difference is that in Turn Based games you move one guy on a board and click end turn and the next person goes, In a RTS there is no end turn button on the screen you actually reinact the battles.
Summary: I can see where the negative reviews for this game are coming from. I've played quite a few strategy games myself and at first was becoming a little frustrated with this one because strategies that I used in similar games didn't work here and it wasn't readily apparent what strategy would work. Don't try to use other games' strategies in this one. This is a simulation of WWII so why should you be surprised that you can't build unlimited armies?
Summary: This game was the first "build an army" type game I ever played. I thought it was really good. I loved how you could build special units for every general and there were mutiple generals and 5 country choices (Germans, Americans, Great Britain, Russia, and Japan). The graphics are good and the sound effects are too. Overall, I definetely recommend this game to almost anyone above 7. I don't really understand why it's rated "T" though.
