I have played a few war games over the years, board and computer.
Looking for a good WWII game.
One that has good tutorials, as a wreck 8 years ago has made my memory a bit off.
Thanks for the help
DO you like to micro-manage?
Do you like long drawn-out games or fast couple of hour-type games?
Gem, you missed these questions:
Tactical, operational, or strategic level?
I go U go, We Go, or Real Time gameplay?
I'm not wargamer nut as many others here (I play other kind of games too), so I can't offer many recommendations. However I recommend you to find out more precisely what kind of games you want to play. There are many cost-free wargames, which you can get started with, and when you find various variables you are interested about, then ask more precisely recommendations about games what have something you want.
Anyways my top recommendation goes for Steel Panthers World at War. It is available for free, turn & hex based, tactical level, covers whole WW2 and beyond all over the world, concentration with combined arms ground combat. PDF manuals and tutorial missions are excellent, and you can master game further with additional tutorial scenarios (need to be downloaded first). Related links:

You know what they say, don't you? About how us MechWarriors are the modern knights, how warfare has become civilized now that we have to abide by conventions and rules of war. Don't believe it. MekWars
