"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...

9/10 - A monumental game, insanely well researched and amazingly easy to get started on. Kudos to 2by3 for this game. To me, this is a classic already.

6/8 - The best thing about War in the East is the sheer scale of the game, almost perfectly simulating in intense struggle for Russia during World War II.

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.

9/10 - Its hard to find something that doesnt work in a game thats almost perfect in every aspect.

With the combination of detail and playability I believe 2By3Games has created an excellent war game that should be attractive to both the experienced war gamer and the more casual gamer looking for a challenge.

The word definitive should not be used lightly but, at this point, this product is the definitive game for the Eastern Front.

8/10 - [Translated from French] War in the East is by many aspects a magnificent game.

92/100 - [Translated from German] Gary Grigsby and his team once again surpass their previous works in size and provide us with not only the ultimate simulation on the eastern front, but one of the best hex-strategy titles ever. WITE combines the traditional virtues of the genre with a contemporary design, innovative features, and thrilling gameplay.

Awe-inspiring, beautiful and complex it is clearly a labour of love from a master of his craft; a love letter to grognards everywhere.
