I owned the original BoB Talonsoft version of this game (I forget the name) and never bought the extended Matrix version.

I have a reviewed interest in the air war and am wondering if I should buy. It seems rather pricey for a two year old product with only a 3 star rating and few added mods or scenarios...

Any comments from someone who owns it?

If you've an interest in the air war at this level then I'd say buy it.  You won't regret it.

few if any bugs at all and very stable. If you have an interest in the air war you'll love it. About mods and other scenarios; there are some Art mods around, but I have no clue if there are any other scenarios floating around.
On of the bad things, is that the community is very small and if you're looking for an opponent, it might be hard.

If you're still really into the original, then you should buy it.
Personally, I think the game is worth 5 stars. If the price, 3 stars and the lack of additional mods hold you back, then you should still buy it.

If you're not really going to like it that much and thought the original was ho-hum, then you shouldn't buy it.

I am thinking about getting this game also but after reading about the sweeps and reviews about the user interface it has turned me off.

Are these 2 things a deal breaker for this game or are they over hyped?

PS.. Hi Hard Sarge, long time no see.

The interface can be mastered very quickly. An understanding of game rules comes readily thereafter. Then it's all about how you play the game; the strategies and the supporting tactics are all fields to be plowed to see what will grow. This game is a nice little diamond with many facets to explore. I love it.

I was put off by the bad press and the screen shots as well, right up until last Friday! Now I have the game I realize that it's a real gem, just in need of some polishing.

I am starting a PBEM vs, Carnage today and we'll probably do our usual AAR thing, although mine will be a basic one due to work pressures.

If you're a WitP or WitE type of player, you will definitely want to have EDBtR in your stable.

Agreed, spot on.

I have not played a war game since WiTE has been released. I think I needed a break form the intense playing of WIR (yes I played this game too much) followed by play testing of WiTE.

Bought the game today as I would like to get back into war gaming but wanted a game I have not played before and this one seemed very interesting.

Cool. Let's spread the word and get some more people engaged. I'm sorry I didn't look at this title more closely before now.

I just fired off turn one of my first PBEM vs. Carnage (BOB) and will put up a little AAR in a minute.

By the way, check out the Mods section for new map mods by BCGames and myself. My BTR mod is based on some earlier work by another modder, while my BOB stuff is all my own.

+1

The other important things is that it's fun to play. I started my first
PBEM whit GB and I enjoy it very much (even if rain down bombs every day!).

I have the original talon-soft Bombing the Reich and battle of Britain. Been meaning to pick this one up for over a year+ now. Just waiting on that income tax return to make a couple of purchases and this will be one of them. WiTE is approaching burnout stage for me for awhile,also things are a bit too hostile over in that forum section at the moment........time for a change.
