btw, the reason I want a WWII game is that I want to test if I can do thing like:
- Play as Germany, and after Poland, attempt to dominate England, invading it or eliminating all naval convoys with uboats and destructors.
- Play as France and try to stop German invasion
- Play with Spain, and go to the war taking advantage of France weakiness.
Of course, I'm looking for tons of replay value :)
There are very good games, I'm playind the demos of Panzer Corps and Unity Of Command. They're really awesome games. I love the fact that they have modifiers like terrain, rivers, 2 troops attacking one, etc. I like that Panzer Corps has ships and planes, and Unity of Command has Fog of War and frontiers. But they're just a serie of single missions. I cannot feel the tension of "****, I gonna lose the north of Italy if my troops cannot resist enough until the two battalions I have in Russia come back!". Poor replay value unless you buy new expansions.
Strategic War in Europe and Commander: Europe at War Grand Strategy 2.0 seems that can give me that feel. However they seems weak in the "modifiers" like terrain, and tactic material, like attack a tile using two flanks. They havent demos, so I only can read reviews and their manuals.
There is lots of games, and I haven't too much time!
