It's ok.... lacking a bit

  • Summary: For the price I paid I'm not disappointed. I really wanted a game like panzer generals from back in the day. This fits the bill but I was expecting a lot more to be honest. There's no cut scenes like panzer general but there is a lot you can do with the game that I haven't explored yet. I haven't tried multi-player so i cannot comment on that. The last solo mission is impossible and I gave up and haven't played since.

  • Summary: The good points..... graphics are great and concept is good. The game play was a bit of disappointment for me. Perhaps i have not fully grasped the nuance of the game.

Yes, but...

RCHEV "rchev", Amazon

  • Summary: ...it's beautiful but so doggoned difficult that it ceases being fun. Even the experts doing the walk-thrus on YouTube confess it took 'em dozens of tries to succeed--and there are some maps that simply cannot produce more than a marginal victory. Oddities abound--cutoff or surrounded units that cannot be defeated (Berlin, for example)..

  • Summary: Solid all-around. Might download some of their other some day. Nice graphics and UI. Pretty easy to learn quickly and start playing.

Should be called "Brevity of Command"

General Admission, Amazon

  • Summary: The thing I like the most about this game are the graphics and supply chain, but beyond that there's plenty to disappoint. First, it's expensive for what you're getting. Very, very few maps and for 20 bucks--a very,very short game. It's really reminds me of a History channel or BBC gamelet rather than a full fledged game. If you're a WWII enthusiast it may be worth a try if you are bored and it's on sale.

Orctownorc, Metacritic
24 August 2013
  • Summary: Unity of Command appears to be a serious effort to kill off what little interest remains in strategic war games. It gets lots of high review scores from 'professional reviewers', who all seem to agree that this game depicts Operation Barbarossa, the German invasion of the USSR in 1941. Too bad for them this game is based on Fall Blau, later renamed Operation Braunsweig, the 1942 summer offensive towards the Southern Soviet oil fields.

It Wasn't What I Wanted

victus, Amazon
11 August 2013
  • Summary: I was thinking a remake of the classic Atari game, Eastern Front 1941, and it was nothing like it. I wanted to control the German invasion, alter history for fun with my own strategy and tactics, but this is a set step-by-step storyline, going from one part of the campaign to the next, playing out history, with very little room for creativity. Worst of all for me, was that it was timed.

  • Summary: A traditional game in WW2 setting where you move armies on a hex field. I saw the demo and didn't buy the full version because the game somehow lacks touch. It's very cold, too abstract, and has very boring premise (cmon, simulating ww2 again? haven't I seen dozens of games like this already)..
