Great game but overpriced and lacking the joys of multiplayer.

Summary: As a kid I originally got this out of a Scholastic box fair at my school. I played this game for hundreds of hours, then during a move to a new house I lost it. I spent years looking for it but could never find it. I got distracted with newer games like Company of Heroes, Men of War, etc.
Summary: Great game! Loved it when younger and still just as good. Not as flashy as the newer stuff, but the gameplay is still fun. Great for the "casual" strategy gamer. Gameplay is deep enough to make it fun, but does not come with a book for a manual like some games.
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.
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.
