    The whole package isn’t exactly deep, but it strikes a satisfying balance between the pleasures of power mongering and the toothsome delights of heavier strategy titles.

    Strategy & Tactics: World War II seems like a bit of a throwback to more traditional tabletop wargames, but it does the job of creating an interesting and historically accurate skirmish well and should appeal to anyone with an interest in this point in history, as well as those with a passion for pure strategy titles.

    Do not expect this to be a mobile Hearts of Iron. The entire game is a string of scenarios covering various operations. Commanding a limited number of units is fun nonetheless, just remember that S&T is not a grand strategy game.

    If players can get past the learning curve though there’s a lot of content here to enjoy. There are even online, offline, and bot multiplayer modes. It’s a shame then that Strategy and Tactics: World War II is so unintuitive because there appears to be a solid little strategy game underneath.

    Strategy & Tactics: World War II strips back its depth of gameplay in an effort to make things easier to approach, however this simplicity has brought a new set of problems to the table.
