Gold and Silver for Warfare Sims and On Target Simulations at Usenet’s Wargame of the Year Awards

Command Modern Air/Naval Operations, by Warfare Sims is named wargame of the year by the community on Usenet. It’s another great achievement for a game that’s been on the front pages of all main websites and specialist magazines for setting a new benchmark in modern warfare simulations. In development for over four years, the game gets a third accolade after being named Best Simulation of 2013 by Eurogamer DK and Best Wargame by War is Boring.

While Command takes the gold award, another game by Matrix Games takes silver. It’s Flashpoint Campaigns Red Storm, a long awaited wargame that was the surprise hit of last year. The game developed by On Target Simulations has received raving reviews since its release and has deserved a place amongst the best hex-based wargames of the decade.

“We are very grateful to see our games voted for year after year and we will continue to support our developers to make sure their games get the attention they deserve”, said Iain McNeil Development Director at Matrix. “We are proud to see players giving us and our development partners this continued recognition”.
