Summary: My 11 year old played this only a few times. He likes other strategy games like Command & Conquer, Halo Wars and Sim City stuff, but didn't seem to have a lot of interest in this one. He says he likes it but judging by the playtime I have to score it low.
Summary: If you are a WWII buff or you just love being able to control your very own Iowa Class battleship as bombers fly overhead with a Mustang escort... then I would suggest NOT getting this game. At least not at the current price. Yes, every gaming review website will give it a great rating for how massive it is... you can go from controlling a submarine underwater to a PT boat on the surface to a flying fortress with the click of a button, which is pretty cool.
Conclusion: Just downloaded and played the demo, what a complete waste of time compared to the original. The original missions seemed a lot more exciting and faster paced where this just seems to show how great the programmers are on graphics. I have been eagerly waiting this game since I learnt it was coming and now will be looking elsewhere for fun, ranks with last GTA as a major disappointment.
