I don't like shooters or sports titles or fancy graphics in lieu of content. Stategy, simulation, or adnenture games for me. I have played many titles and I just recently stumbled across this one. Wow! Good stuff. If concepts are more important to you than graphics then this is a very solid war stategy game. It seemed too complex initially but after about 11 hours I understood how simple and streamlined it really is.
I gave this game a 9 but considered an 8. Although I haven't finished it yet I can already tell that it will be pretty much the same thing with just more challenges thrown at you. That is why I considered 8. But after reconsidering I realized that this game completely achieves its objectives and definitely makes you feel like you are the 5-star general moving your officers around the map. It accomplished this with very simple ideas that are actually very complex. Micromanagement, which I like however, is at a very minimum.
Had this title included economic, political, and domestic features that were more fleshed out then this would have easily been my 2nd all-time score of 10. Instead it is in rare company with a 9. Game is worth $30, at least; Im so I glad I got it for $9.99.
It's definitely worth it.… Full Review »
