Summary: This is a terrific turn based strategy game that breathes new life into the genre. Folks that have never played a wargame may still enjoy this gem. It has a terrific user interface, clever art, contemplative sound track and excellent game play that is quick to learn but difficult to master. The AI can be brutal, but it also helps you to learn the game.
Summary: *Accidentally posted this for the MAC version at first* I bought it directly from their site when it first came out, but WOW what a game. So simple yet so deep. The AI is brutal at exploiting your mistakes. Truly a challenging wargame that requires real thought, strategy, and tactics. Supply is modeled so, so well. The Red Turn expansion adds a ton of huge new scenarios. Multiplayer is a blast too, just join the Steam group for UoC and you'll find people to play with.
Summary: TL;DR: It's awesome -IF- you know what you're getting here and if you're actually into this kind of game. To know what you get I guess you have to read the rest of this wall of text. I promise it will be a nice and informative read while covering most of what you'd want to know before you buy the game or one of the two DLC's.
One of the Best Moderate Complexity Wargames to Appear in Several Years!

Summary: I have been playing wargames for many years, both board and computer. But I have rarely come across a game system that is so clear and functional ! Unit capabilities are easily displayed, and there is just enough sound effects without overwhelming the action! I have played about six different scenarios in campaign mode, and looking forward to going farther than Stalingrad in the next one!
Summary: UNITY OF COMMAND is my first Amazon "digital" download, and on that point alone, I was pleased with how easy it was to load the game onto my computer. The whole process took about ten or fifteen minutes, but the "ease" of doing so far outweighed the actual download time (I will gladly sacrifice fifteen minutes if it means that I don't have to fill out a form, or answer questionaires, etc).
A solid turn-based strategy game like the good o' days
17 March 2012
Summary: It does some aspects, such as suppression and supply line, even better than my old favorite Panzer General II. However, the built-in scenarios frequently restrict the ways these features can be exploited strategically. While its theoretically great that you can render a heavily fortified enemy force ineffective by cutting off its supply, it does little good when there is a supply point right next to that force, or if any vulnerbilities in an extended supply line is so...
Summary: Unity of Command is one of the best computer wargames to come out in years. It combines those rare qualities of easy to learn yet difficult to master. It is also doesn't lose the history with its streamlining either. The supply mechanism is vey well done and better implemented than that in many more complex games. The AI continues to be challenging after many plays. If you have any interest in WW2 operational warfare do not miss Unity of Command.
