meh. I just finished my first game as German against the Sov AI, the long Case Blue Scenario on Normal setting. While I generally enjoyed it, I thought that the AI was pretty lame, and some game features I'm not too keen on.
When I say that the AI is lame, I mean that I wouldn't have expected to get an autowin in late November in my first game; I'd taken Stalingrad, Poti, and Baku, was close to taking the town in the southeast corner of the map (Chapaev?), and was about to wipe out the AI's northern flank just east of Saratov (kind of piling on, and using the north map edge, but still...). I don't expect too much from game AI's, but generally if I get an autowin the first time out the gate I regard that as a bad sign...
I like a lot about the game, but the amount of clicking due to the simple lack of ability to select a stack drives me kind of crazy. I also didn't care for some other game features, like how units, even infantry units, which are out of supply immediately lose all ability to move, or how land units have to attack aircraft on bases, etc.
I'm debating now whether to try a DCCB server game vs a human opponent or move to a new East Front game which I've just picked up; any thoughts from the crowd?
