For all its shortcomings, the game is good in the sense of its level of detail. No other WWI game ever made comes close. WWI is a tough war to replicate in a game because of all the extenuating circumstances involved, ie. The use of then experimental weapons, the clash of old and new tactics, gas, cavalry, massive amounts of artillery, etc . I think they have done the best of anyone in the genre so far.
I have to disagree with you, Paths of Glory the board game is the best simulation of the conflict I have ever played. This game isn't even close.
But when Territories are acquired in regions where there are differences in language, customs, and laws then great good fortune and much hard work are required to hold them.
