My biggest problem with the game is that it has so many undocumented shortcut keys without on-screen button / menu equivalents. Clearly a bad UI design decision. It looks as if they took the old AGEOD operational wargame engine and placed additional economic-country management mechanics, didn't think though the UI segment, and just made shortcut keys instead.
Having said that, the combat mechanics are great and I only find myself playing the short war scenarios without economic management like previous AGEOD titles.
Ding. +1. I bought the game. I wanted to play the shorter scenarios and not worry as much about empire building. I have Victoria 1 and that was Ok.
I bought the game, though. I like it. I like the engine. For that reason I'll eventually buy Revolution Under Siege. It was developed with their engine, but was developed by another company. Still - it is another quality product from what I've read and a star in the folder of Aegod engine games.
I hope they go back to a more War type game though for their next venture. AACW2, HYW, 30YW, WW1. (Yes, I know they have a WW1 game out and also that Rus is basically a WW1 type game, but I want WW1 with the Aegod engine and I want it now!
