Computer Gaming World - 4.5 / 5 - "Wargame of the Year 2004"
"A Cut Above the Rest. Battles of Normandy may be the best operational-level computer war game on the market today. Short of pushing cardboard chits, you won't find a better war game."

Gamerhall.de - 82% (german)
"Bei BIN geht es voll zur Sache, man hat keine Ruhe und muss sich seinem Geschick stellen. 82 % sind für das Spiel eine eindeutige Aussage und Kampfansage an alle die gar so toll aufgemotzten Strategiespiele der letzten Monate.

Strategy Informer - 8.3/10
"This is a very effective wargame, it simulates the campaign quite realistically. The AI is far from brain dead, and will provide players a challenge. This game is aimed at the hard core wargamer, and it hits its target audience. Casual gamers that enjoy a challenge will have their hands full here, and pure wargamers will find the game they have been waiting for. Highly recommended."
