I've just picked up a copy of Beevor's D-Day in a charity shop (hardback, perfect condition, 1.50) and I thought I'd pick up a wargame to match. Then I saw the price - 34 for a 7 year-old game?????

Think I'll stick to my copy of TOAW for now.

It's much better than TOAW imo. I think it's still worth the price myself, but it's turn based so if you don't like turn based it won't be your cup of tea. I played a PBEM game of the campaign last year, was great fun. There are also some user-created scenarios over at ssg's forum. Be sure to patch it and get those scenarios if you ever pick it up.

Was thinking about buying it myself.

But at 40 (including the VAT which Matrix forgets to mention as part of the sticker price) for what is now an 8 year old game with no apparent support (e.g. the most recent question on the tech support forum from 2009 is still awaiting a reply) I think not.

Im getting this.Its on sale now half price,but if it was not, there is no way I would purchase.its $17 cdn now.Which is still pretty high for a 9 year old title.

Thats how they are,they want an outrageous price,yet no support.

$17 canadian? Why so bloody cheap for you lot? This game, including Battlefront etc are still $34 Australian.

I love the games Matrix publishes, but I don't think I will ever stop hating their pricing system; it really makes bugger all sense.

As for SSG...yes, they really haven't been stellar in support of their games for a number of years now, not to mention pulling an all round houdini and vanishing off the planet. And they do charge like wounded bulls.

Good games though, I give them that.
