Summary: I bought the first German release.. there was no support... and still is none.. game crashes all the time... loading times are an horror.. if they had streamlined it a bit better.. then it could have been a fun game... for now the game .. even the english version who got an update more is still a no go.. would not recommend it even if it was laying in a bargain bin.. too bad..
Summary: War Leaders is a poor man's Hearts of Iron III, which may be a good thing for beginner and intermediate wargamers. If you can get it for $20 or less, I found it certainly worth the price. And I do not particularly like RTS games. You can also just play the game from the strategic map and auto-resolve the tactical battles. Lots of units that are historically accurate. Overall, a solid introductory game, like Risk on steriods.
Summary: Wow. So much hype. None of it realized. The battles are said to be the highlight of the game, but they are a a poor approximation of the original Command and Conquer, with better graphics. Strategy? None. You've got one major army to move around the board. The game plays more like risk at the strategy level and the combat is more like the "magnet ball"games you get when 5 year olds play soccer. Steer clear of this title.
Summary: I tried to give this game a shot. As a strategy game it is very basic compared to games such as Civilization, or even MOO2. I played only in the campaign mode and didn't get a chance to get into the in depth battles. My major problem is this game crashes, regularly. At first I though I was running too many programs, so I shut everything else down and tried just running the game, still crashes.
Summary: First, I'm 48, spent most of my life with or on computers but I'm no gamer. I have no console and the only other games on my system are the ones that ship with vista. I got this because I wanted to try out a strategy game and liked how it combined real-time play with strategy. So far, I've just played the single player, mini-battle scenarios, but it's good fun. I think I'll enjoy using the 'leader' roles and doing the research for the real gameplay.
Summary: A fantastic mix of turn based and realtime strategy. The complexity of the strategic mode is somewhere between Axis and Allies and HOI. The end result being a playable, fun game. I have not had any bug issues whatsoever. The game is smooth as silk and is just a joy to play. One of the things that appeals to me in this game compared to others in its genre (WII grand strategy), is that each country actually has strengths and weaknesses as far as military units go.
Summary: Sorry guys this was a big disappointment. Beat the game in less than a day at the normal settings. The game was a good concept but lacked depth and feel. I liked how the battles played out but really it is just a poor attempt to bring a Total War aspect to the WW2 field. The research tree unimaginative and narrow in its choices. A complete lack of re playability.
Summary: First, let me say that this is quite a value - very inexpensive for a new-issue game. And you get two games in one. Playing a skirmish game will put you into a tactical game. You pick a map and you have so much money to spend on your army--buy infantry, tanks, howitzers, bombers, whatever--there is quite sufficient variety in what you can buy. Your opponent does the same and you are off to battle.
Summary: This is a fantastic game that allows the user to control or automate several operations inlcuding: researching technology, collecting taxes, recruiting and ordering troops, and constructing buildings and fortifications. This is essentially a Civilizations game set in WWII. The graphics are good, the controls are easy, it allows you to play as one of the superpower's leader from WWII.
Summary: Ok let me start out by saying that I am a veteran with these exact type of games. I have been playing these things for over 30 years now. I have every one of the Hearts of Iron games, I have Making History, Gary Grigsby's World at War, Axis & Allies (all versions that were made on the comp), just to name a few. Now I have this War Leaders and I tell you after watching all the gameplay videos on youtube, I had to get it! How is it?
