I recently posted asking to compare Flashpoint to Command Ops. Also wondering, how does Flashpoint compare to The Operational Art of War III? I've read some post that have said I should get TOAW III because it's such a great game. I know there is another version coming out soon, but finances isn't an issue. Just trying to understand what are the differences and what are the pros/cons of each game? Is one better than the other, why?

I have TOAW3 as well. This is more of an apples to oranges comparison, for TOAW is IGOUGO (but with a twist), but again they are both great games in their own right.

I love TOAW3, but the current version is feeling its age a bit, imho, so maybe start with the other two, and get TOAW4 the second it comes out.

Two different games. FCRS is tactical, with primary focus only on 1980's Germany NATO vs Warsaw Pact Bn/Bde scenarios. TOAW is operational, with much broader focus on many different operational warfare scenarios.

If you were to design a scenario in TAOW III that was an exact duplicate of a FCRS scenario (other than scale, TAOW does not support direct ranged fire), I think you would see that FCRS might give back a more realistic feel. I like both though. TAOW seems to be more of a jack of all trades master of none, whereas FCRS has a very specific feel for what it simulates.
