"A great game, the culmination of the hardest strategy , a kind of simulator field command, a game you can not miss all those that you feel as General potential to be".

8.0/10 - War in the East is a great game, a great richness and depth rarely seen in a wargame, without falling into the unit's micro-management. However, it reserve for a community of players who made ​​the effort to read the manual. But once we crossed the line, this game is easier to master than it looks. Simulate the eastern front on this scale, with more detail and realism is, I think, become impossible. The future will tell me if I'm wrong...

5/5 - [Translated from Finnish] Luckily every now and then we see games that take their genre to the next level. Strategy game guru Gary Grigsby's War in the East is one of these games. For the fans of hex strategy games this is the best thing since, well, the invention of hexes.
