First of all, it's going to sound like I'm bitching, but I really like this game. I just want to understand how to play. I know I will have to read the manual, and I want to, but the chapter 4 tutorial leaves a LOT to be desired.
I have never played any game in this series before. I don't know what I'm doing. I thought a tutorial would teach me how to play.
So, pages 34 and 35 talk about reinforcing Tobruk with some Italian forces, by sending an HQ and a unit of tanks there. But, it doesn't tell me how to do this! Should I move the Graziani HQ in Genoa down to Tobruk? That is the only Italian HQ I see on the map. How do I do this? I don't see any tank units. Does the game want me to create a new HQ and a new tank unit? How do I do this? I don't know, it doesn't teach me.
Then, it goes on to consider research for the Italians before they enter the war. It gives me some ideas aobut what I should upgrade, but again, it doesn't tell me how to do this.
Very frustrating for a new player to this series.
Also - it's tough to remember the ESC key actually minimizes the game. This is not like any other game I have ever played. I keep hitting ESC to bring up the menu, but that's not how it works. Just kind of odd.
