This game is nostalgia for me, I used to own the orgional EF II and played it exclusively for a few years. What is different from the Eastern Front side of this version. Don't care about the Pacific or Westfront, though it's a bonus they are included.

The original EF II only had 2 linked campaigns, I notice there are now 6 linked campaigns for the eastern front, what are they ?

Has the AI been improved at all over the orgional ?

I know the DCG are pretty generic, what units can you use in the DCG ?

There are new Optional Rules to try out that will make playing the AI significantly more challenging.

The DCG's have a number of new organizations to try out, they are denoted with a "MCS".

There is a large community that plays the Campaign Series at:
Excellent place to discuss the game, find opponents or get some tactical advice.
