Summary: After a little bit of learning, this game is similar to xcom. The cool thing is you get to build your army and then play a scenario (like xcom) where you exchange turn based moves and firing. I was a bit disappointed though that after the first 1/2 to 12 scenarios, I went back to the beginning replaying the same scenarios and starting with only a couple of soldiers. The game is a lot of fun and I would give it a 10 if only it were finished.
Summary: This game is really bad. The controls are unworkable. I cut my teeth on platoon maneuver games in the day and this game is really bad. The instructions are useless. I have played this game a whopping 30 minutes and ready to move on...I want my 20 bucks back!!
Summary: This game fails on many levels - being that it suported by the History Channel I don't get how history had much to do with it. in order to plan it you need to read the book it came with and it is thick oh my god! And the level you go though almost look the same with very little that changes unless you read the book - it is not intuitive at all even though it has tanks on the jacket forget it is mostly the grunts shooting at eachother in like a squad against the germans.
Summary: This game is one of the best strategy games I own. It's turn based, which gives you all the time you need to think or anything, and there are tons of singleplayer missions to play through. The graphics are very good, although I've seen better from 2012. The gameplay is fluid and easy to follow. The controls may be tough to get at first, but after a few missions you'll be commanding your troops like Patton himself.
Summary: Was looking for a Christmas gift for my 7 year old son. He wanted a war game that we could play together. This was an abysmal buy. The game interface is terrible. This thing looks and feels like an early 90s computer game. There is no true multiplayer option. Multiplayer in this context really just means taking turns like you're playing a board game. There's no strategy here. There's no action. There's no real play. This is a poorly conceived, designed, and built game.
