Ode to the strategy guide
I am simply thrilled from the strategy guide!
Only twice in my already long playing career of strategy gaming I have spent money on a strategy guide.
Both acquisitions were o.k. but also sobering - I should have saved my money.
Of course I have seen the strategy guide to "Highway To The Reich" in the Matrix catalog.
But I did not understand why I should spend money for it. And quite honestly, I thought, I was of the opinion this is to rip off to bare money making.
WRONG! COMPLETELY WRONG!!
The "Highway To The Reich" strategy guide is informative, interesting, entertaining and easy to read.
It is rich and beneficial illustrated.
And it reserves its validity for the most part for the current Command Ops games!
One can find general (military - structures, schedules, etc.), system-/series specific (Command Ops series), specific (Highway To The Reich original game) and information about the campaign (OOB information for the used equipment, Operation Market Garden campaign analysis) information.
All very interesting - frequently my "Ah! - light bulb” turned on.
Much now is more understandable to me. Many things I do differently today.
Due to the advanced understanding also my fun playing the game has risen.
I say the strategy guide "Highway To The Reich" is a worthwhile purchase and I regret, and I am angry that I saved a few coins for the "Highway To The Reich" strategy guide in the past.
Whether you will understand my excitement as recommendation to buy?
For, Command Ops – masters not too much new can be found in the strategy guide.
Worth reading, and though perhaps only as a reference book, it is all the time
For, Command Ops beginners and perplexed gamers some answers and tips should be found in the strategy guide.
I salute the authors: Steve „Golf33“ Long, Mark „MarkShot“ Kratzer und Steve Barnes for their outstanding written "Highway To The Reich" strategy guide.
