towerbooks3192 -> Strategic Command WW1+ Breakthrough or Commander: The great war? (1/30/2013 1:37:57 PM)

There was an article where both Commander: Europe at War and Strategic Command 2 was compared. I need help ASAP on which one to choose. SC WW1+ Expansion cost $55 while Commander: The Great War cost $40

SC's upper hand is the free WW2 scenario while C:TGW is better presentation-wise and graphically but not sure gameplay-wise.

Please help me decide

I like Commander, But SCww1 is far superior in both depth and realism. Commander feels like a wargame in a ww1 setting, while SC feels more like a game about ww1. Plus all the extra scenerios. Both are fun, I lean toward SC, much more "bang" for the dollar.

Reading AAR's etc I have to agree with VRocko. I I was to buy one or the other it would be SC game as it would suit my preference of trying to be historical where as Commander is a fun wargame with a WW1 look etc.

WW1Gold is what you need to be looking at for indepth WW1..however it isn't for the faint hearted.

many here will say Commander though;)..it looks like a great fun game and I'd say if someone wanted a fun game with a WW1 setting I'd say buy it. If your after something abit deeper I'd say SCWW1 and if you want hardcore I'd say WW1Gold.

Yeah Scww1 gets my vote too.

SCWW1 + Breakthrough (if only for the Russian Civil War campaign) gets my vote as well.

Though I do still intend picking up CWW1 at some point in the future.

Where's a good place to buy Strategic Command?

I think its better to buy from battlefront since other versions aren't compatible with the battlefront expansions.

Ok, I think I will give CTGW some time to mature. I know SC really lacks some eye candy compared to CTGW but gameplay-wise and the compatibility of the WW2 scenarios. The other thing is that after getting into hexes, squares are starting to get unbearable (I think I have gotten over the squares of FF tactics and advance wars or the old Civs). Ok, I will buy CTGW some point in time and maybe get it once they release something like the GC mod of CEAW.

My only other complaint about SC is that you control all the axis and allies and not just a major power. I mean I would want to try conquering the world using Germany only or be an Axis US or something.

As for WW1 gold, I had my eyes on it but I think the AGEOD engine feels a bit restrictive for me after I saw Alea Jacta Est.

Towerbooks..WW1Gold doesn't use the AGEOD engine..it's a independent developers game.

Really? I thought it was AGEOD. It looks like AGEOD but I guess I will have to take a look again. I know I could buy the base game and the upgrade for $30 off gamersgate. Hmmmm, I see some videos but its a bit vague. How is the gameplay on that one? Is it like Victoria 2 but focuses more on the conflict or something?




wodin -> RE: Strategic Command WW1+ Breakthrough or Commander: The great war? (1/31/2013 2:41:48 AM)

No nothing at all like Paradox games or Ageod games..It's turn based or WEGO for starters. I've sent you a PM.
