  1. This may well be John Tiller’s masterpiece. For dynamic, white-knuckled intensity and fine-grained realism, it comes closer than any previous PC game to replicating the spirit of that legendary boardgame classic "Advanced Squad Leader."

    The game plays well, creates delightful tension, and captures the ebb and flow of small unit actions. It's just too bad that HPS won't invest money in upgrading graphics or printing a manual. If they did, they'd have a turn-based winner.
  3. It's still a superlative wargame, but it's not Tiller's best. It is, however, perhaps his most accessible.
