Fun and easy to learn, but also detailed and authentic

Summary: Order of War ([...]) is an excellent entry into the World War II real-time strategy genre. Although this type of game isn't new, Order of War provides new ideas and a fresh perspective on the typical (and not-so-typical) battles of the Second World War. For one thing, you can command hundreds of men and vehicles in even a relatively small engagement. Some of the larger battles are so immense that it's hard to keep your units on the screen!
Summary: Bought Order of War about a week ago and spent something like 25-30 hours playing it. Being a fan of WWII RTS games for years (CoH, WiC, MoW) I got interested by the opportunity to play WiC-like battles but on larger scale and with nicer graphics - and actually haven't been disappointed yet. OoW plays like a decent and well-balanced strategy game with cool visuals and quick-paced gameplay. There is no resource-gathering and base-building.
Summary: I'm not sure what the two people below are talking about, but I just bought my copy from Amazon.com (arrived yesterday) and was able to install without any problem. It does use Steam, but it accepted my reg code without any problems. Steam won't activate games that are trying to be installed before the release date, so maybe that was the issue? Anyway, the game also came with an extra unit (the Heavy Bomber) that other retailers don't include.
