    It's the best evidence of games' actually having some value beyond entertainment, and it's a total bonus and not necessary for game enjoyment. You can play it just as a game, and it works fine too. [July 2006, p.62]

    Very solid title coming from a big-time strategy game fan. I don't like shooters or sports titles or fancy graphics in lieu of content.Very solid title coming from a big-time strategy game fan. 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.

    Would be a 10 easy but it plays a bit slow. It was such a nice change from base building rts.

    Fun strategy game, much like a board game but would be good if you could control production or influece how the locals think about your side.
