    This is really an outstanding game for those who enjoy a turn based strategy game that is primarily military but also has economic and technological decisions that greatly impact the game. The historical accuracy achieved through random events and timing of nations into the game is also very pleasing. The game accomodates for varying levels of AI competitiveness although it is definitely below human level and needs additional resources to complete for more advanced players. I'm yet to try the multi-player which is facilitated via the matrix website. Graphics reflect the age of the game but are servicable.
    Really outstanding game overall that has the best balance of strategic, tactical and economic/technological aspects for WW2 without extreme complexity.

    If you like the board game axis and allies, get this, its pretty much the same. if you want a deep global WWII experience where almost anything is possible, get hearts of iron 1 or 2. Full Review »
