  1. May be too complicated for many real-time strategy players and a little too silly for hardcore wargamers. If you don't mind making some compromises in either direction, however, there is ample fun to be had.
  2. Playing the larger missions is more tedious than fun because of path finding and unit management problems.
  3. An enjoyable change of pace and presents enough atmosphere, and solid gameplay to entertain, just don't expect any of it to be easy.
  4. Worth a look. Even if you are not a fan of the period or prefer more traditional RTS games, you will probably find that the challenges offered by the diverse campaigns will suck in more of your time than you expected.

    There's fun to be had here so long as you aren't expecting a serious World War II sim. [Feb 2001, p.64]
  6. The game's campaign mode is disappointing. Most missions are not based on historical battles, and there are no consequences for losing a mission other than that it will have to be replayed.
  7. All the clever animations, amusing sounds, and pretty battle graphics in the world can't replace an interesting combat system.

The feature to issue multiple commands while paused helps balance the fact that you are often in control of hundreds of units. It can be quite the challenge, as well. I can come back to this game any time and it has yet to become boring. Full Review »

Many This game totally kicks most other RTS games to the curb. It has stunning graphics and awsome sound which makes the whole game better. Many of the missions depict many real battles like Bastogne, Stalingrad, and D-day and even has a mission based on the movie Saving Private Ryan. All of the weapons and vehicles are real and if you are good at RTS games then you will have almost no problems beating the campaign mode. Full Review »
