ScottW.10This Game just had awesome Gameplay and awesome Graphics , not too easy because I like a challenge. Multiplay is just awesome.
AceH.10Very fun game. Slight learning curve. Best enjoyed with Xbox Live, although there are some fun battles on the game itself. Tutorial is a must to play effectively, though. Very original, intellectually stimulating, and a blast all in the same game.… Expand
CliveG.8This is a surprisingly well put together game. The single biggest drawback is that during battles with multiple units you spend most of your time playing on the map screen to coordinate everything. Also, it's often easier to let the CPU control all the units automatically but what's missing is a camera that enables you to look around without interupting the CPU - the moment you touch the controls, you assume manual control. Other than that, the impressive graphics, balanced gameplay and authentic performance of the different units make this a great option for strategy and WWII buffs.… Expand
MattBadley6Using 'Reverse' is not a sound Naval tactic. But this game makes it viable, completely destroying the laws of physics being able to stop gaint ships almost on a dime. It makes torpedo's in this game almost impossible to use. Not only that, but your friendly AI walks around like an idiot half the time if you don't keep a leash on them.
Aside from that, it can be an alright game.… Expand
