    An impressive accomplishment whose size and depth is a testament to wargaming's ability to bring history to life. [April 2011, p.76]

    There are not as many games like this as there used to be, and hardly any that have the kind scope on display in War in the East. It is a good, very detailed example of the classic hex-based operational wargame.

Maybe a little too complex. There are some concepts, like the TOE (tables of equipment), that i feel could be dropped. Interface is good, but not great. Some menus are hard find, on the beginning.

    Concept of airbases HQ, i am not sure it is the best, they have changed it with War in the West.

    But for someone who wants the whole eastern campaign 1941-45, i think this game is the best.

It can be learned in 15 minutes, but is deep enough that even after several hundred hours of playing, you will still learn new things. Strong support from the developers as they continue to try to balance what must be a near impossible feat, every person (squad level), tank, plane, and leader of the greatest conflict in history.

This is a result of howThis game looks daunting, but much like a long book, you are rewarded if you just plow through the first few times. This is a result of how great the game, not a problem with the game. If you are looking for call of duty or angry birds this is NOT it. If you are looking for the best computer implementation of a WWII strategy game at the divisional level showing an entire theater of operation, this is it. High levels of detail, but doesn't really force micromanagement. To best experience the game, dive into the Forums and discussions and read some AAR's. This game rewards you highly for your investment, but you DO NEED TO MAKE AN INVESTMENT IN TIME. Awesome. Full Review »
