    Downloaded without a hitch on launch day. Played for over 6 hours without ONE hitch, no crashes, nothing. Gameplay was great, I was in that "just one more turn" mode, couldn't walk away from it. I like the fact that as Central Powers, I can control the research, production and armies of all the nations. Great to finally see a WW1 Grand Strategy Game that is challenging but simple to use, has simple graphics but is still unique and isn't full of bugs. Expand

    Bought it straight from Matrix games and it id a very fun fame, AI is extremely good and the whole game is polished and very well done. If you like strategy games this is a solid choice. There are not many games set during The Great War and this game is well worth the money. Expand

    Easy to play, hard to master. If you like high quality boardgames of military strategic genre, you won't be disappointed with this computer game. The AI is the best in the business. There seems to be a lot of faux reviews for this game here, unfortunately. Expand

    Great stuff ! This is the kind of game that will cost me my marriage one day. : ) Highly addictive in the sense that you simply can't resist doing "just one more round". And then when you finally finish, you want to start a whole new campaign right away. The excellent graphics really suck you into the world of the Great War. Expand

    I am not so much into turn based strategy games but was nicely surprised seeing that kind of game coming on as i still remember many days playing Panzer General on my first PC as a child. Anyway not really sure what are the complains about. The graphics is nice and together with the videos like from old historical movies creates a nice climate. If it comes for AI i would even say the game is little bit too hard for me, there should be some noob mode :) To summarize its a good game and i think some of the people here should go back to playing Battlefield as probably this is what they are looking for.

    Really enjoyabe in a seldom used niche. Frank Hunters Guns of August is better on land but not naval. This uses that dreaded Commander factor of ten for units. Historical, simuulates well the static trench warfare. Worth the $35. Expand

    I tried to like this game but I quickly lost interest. It uses poor combat modifiers and the simulation of air war lacks creativity. Diplomacy is also an afterthought. I'd recommend Hearts of Iron 3 using the WWI mod, or Strategic Command WWI. The Commander interface is just a bland and worn out interface with a shallow conception. Expand
