    I have been playing this game for over 5 years now and keep going back to it. H2H play is superb but unfortunately i have yet to finish a game against another human player, simply because its a very large commitment for anyone to make and can last months playing by email. Anyone who enjoyed Great Naval Battles from the mid 90's will love this game as there are many similarities. TheI have been playing this game for over 5 years now and keep going back to it.

The A.I. is very good and will give you a difficult challenge even after you have mastered the game. Expand

  1. A little patience and a lot of practice is likely to produce some highly addictive results, even for those who felt overwhelmed and frustrated by Grigsby's earlier efforts such as "Pacific War" and "War in Russia."
  2. Controlling all of these details might overwhelm a novice player at first, but given time to practice and master the interface and all of the commands start to come pretty naturally, it even becomes rather addictive.

    It's one of those rare games that manages to combine detail, historical accuracy and playability to make a truly engaging and entertaining strategy game.
