Thank you for the review! I'm sorry the graphics and sound did not pass muster with you, but I think it's a very good review overall. 10/10 for Atmosphere/Gameplay, 8/10 for Content/Game Size and 9/10 for Artificial Intelligence are great scores for us. Hopefully wargamers will look at those primarily and we'll have a chance in a sequel to improve the graphics and sound and polish the game further.

Regards,

- Erik

I really like this game, Erik. This is from a fan who buys all Matrix games as you can probably see from my profile, lol. I just wish it got more love.

Dont think I was "hard" on this game. 77% is a very good rating. Of course the overall rating suffered a bit from the average graphics- and sound rating but well... The most important parts for a strategygame/wargame (gameplay, atmosphere etc) are on the top.

I'm really enjoying Germany at War too. Erik's numerous write-ups explaining the game pushed me over from wanting to buy it, to actually purchasing it.

I prefer tactical and operational level games on the light side of wargaming so we're talking Conflict of Heroes, Panzer Korps, Battle Academy, etc. That being said, I really want games I can play from the German side, especially in campaigns. It's the main reason I dropped off playing Battle Academy; not enough content from the German p.o.v. So when I saw Germany at War (the name says it all) and saw it had campaigns from the Deutsche perspective combined with Erik's posts, sold!

I haven't stopped playing it since.

I look forward to what's in store for the franchise.

Hello,

i read the review and while one does not agree with everthing i felt it was a balanced, well written report.

You really looked into the game and one can see you played it with thought and for quite a while.

We will also take into account several points you mentioned, some in fact were already on our list.

So thanks for the review.

@all others: thanks for the sympathy, it really motivates us even more to make the game better!

Regards,
