    Great grand-strategic game. I read another vote on here that said there was no way to undo unit moves, ambphib assault - that is flat out wrong. Both of these are quite easy to do. In fact after about 3 hours w/ the game the GUI now seems very good to me, very quick without too much unecessary clicking. Gameplay is fast and fun - and ADDICTIVE. All countries playable across the entire Great grand-strategic game. I read another vote on here that said there was no way to undo unit moves, ambphib assault - that is flat out wrong.

Supply system is optional but once you are using it brings an entirely new and interesting dynamic to the game. Great great fun game!!!! --John Expand

    Very good game, with alot of hidden strategic depth. Pretty easy learning curve with managable game lengths (3-5 hours for a full single player game). The AI is very good, particularly for a grand strategy game, and can play as axis or allies with equal skill. And yes, the manual explains how to do amphibious assaults and undo moves...

    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 definitelyThis 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 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.

    The actual movement of troops is the most accessible and obviously enjoyable part of the game but the rewards of managing your supply chains and setting production priorities are absolutely undeniable.
  2. It's about as thrilling as you can make learning history without wearing costumes.
  3. Much deeper than "Axis & Allies," but just as accessible. A new strategy addiction. [June 2005, p.70]
