GaryChildress -> Should I buy this game? (11/20/2011 8:20:15 PM)

I have a 50% off coupon and am trying to decide which game to get with it. So far I'm hung between War in the East, Unity of Command or maybe one of the Decisive Battles games. How do people like this game so far? I was a little put off by the graphics I saw in AAR screenshots. Not a big fan of moving heads around on a screen. Other than that the game looks kind of interesting.

What are other people's opinions of this game?

Thanks for helping me decide! [:)]




Asty -> RE: Should I buy this game? (11/20/2011 8:21:13 PM)

This game is only $30 so for that reason alone, I'd pick a different title.

Game is great though!

JudgeDredd -> RE: Should I buy this game? (11/20/2011 9:04:01 PM)

The game is easily worth $30 (imo) - it's a no brainer at $15...but I'd echo what Asty said - use your coupon on something more expensive - 'cos this is worth the ticket (again - imo)

Were you not thinking about picking up GG WitE? If so - I'd use the coupon on that to get a nice fat saving [:D]

Where does one ever get a 50% coupon from matrix:)

Played the first 5 battles yesterday.

REALLY like this game. Very playable, but with a great feel for the period and the battles.
Each battle was accurate, and often tense.
Trying to achieve the victory conditions in a timely fashion in order to gain the most prestige (which you then use as currency to purchase critical unit upgrades, replacements, or reinforcements for future battles) is a fun mechanic.

The campaign mode is fun, but I would like to also play a much longer grand campaign so that there was even more continuity. Perhaps there could be a grand campaign for each Army Group: North, Center, and South.

Over-all, this is a GREAT system, and loads of fun. I wouldn't miss it if I were you.

I bought the Panzer Corps 1939 and 1940 expansion campaigns and there was some kind of glitch in their delivery (of the physical copies) that caused the delivery to be late. So Matrix generously gave me and others effected by the mishap a 50% off coupon toward any game. Very generous IMO. [:)]

Nice..certainly a good deal.

I think this game is an absolute buy! I'm enjoying this game more than any that I have bought in a long time. It has a few things that could be improved as all games do, but the fun is definitely there. It's an amazing first game from a small developer and I hope that it has great sales so they can keep improving this game and develop others.

That was very generous.

doubt it would be there.$30 is pretty cheap anyways,Im sure its worth it.




budd -> RE: Should I buy this game? (11/21/2011 2:37:48 AM)

no it won't be in the sale, matrix doesn't put new releases in the sale,but i'd use the 50% off on a bigger ticket game that might be in the sale. I believe I read where he went with WITE for the coupon.




sfbaytf -> RE: Should I buy this game? (11/21/2011 5:35:22 PM)

Been watching this and other threads and went ahead and got this along with Hannibal vs Rome which I've heard is really difficult. Both look like something I can play on my laptop which is only a dual core and has a Radeon 4250 in it. I just relocated and my stuff hasn't arrived so im stuck in a hotel with just my laptop. Been playing PanzerCorps hooked up to the LCD TV with a HDMI cable. Looks nice.

Im now wondering how this and other games will run on a tablet.

Yeah. I went ahead and pulled the trigger on WitE. No big deal. It was 50% off so I'm happy--holiday sale or not. [:)]




gdrover -> RE: Should I buy this game? (11/21/2011 10:20:07 PM)

Three of my favorite games:

Panzer Corps

Hannibal

Unity of Command

Really enjoying all three of these recently. Can't go wrong buying any of these as an early Christmas gift to yourself. :)




gradenko_2000 -> RE: Should I buy this game? (11/21/2011 10:51:53 PM)

If you're at all interested in the subject, I would use the coupon on War in the East. UOC is a great game and I'd definitely recommend it, but the price-point is low enough compared to Matrix's other games that you can use the coupon on a different game instead.

It's what makes Matrix Games a superb firm!!!
Kudos to Matrix.




Queeg -> RE: Should I buy this game? (11/24/2011 1:42:53 AM)

This one gets a definite thumbs up from me. I'm sick of WWII games and generally don't much care for the Eastern Front anyway, but I picked up this game on a whim based on the positive posts here. And I'm enjoying it immensely.

The interface is the best, most orginal, I've seen in a very long time. There are several "I wonder why everyone doesn't do this" items, such as pop-up objectives and supply sources. Elegant is the best word for it.

I'm still on the introductory scenario but I really having a great time.




rjh1971 -> RE: Should I buy this game? (11/25/2011 11:56:35 PM)

Ok after reading only praisings for this game I have purchased it, done the tutorial and the Crimea scenario and it looks fun.
