I purchased the game during the winter sale but I can't get into playing it because I can't tell the units apart. A standard set of unit counters (NATO style) would make it simple to identify the unit level and type (i.e., inf reg., inf battalion, tank battalion, engineer, etc.).
The "axis and allies" type graphics does not make it easy for me to identify a unit and since I'm not a geek as to the differences in individual unit equipment markings, I would not recognize them by sight anyway, especially on a cluttered combat map and would not want to. The UI is suppose to make it easy for the user to play, not harder. A NATO unit counter would make it easy at a glance to tell type of unit and I could click on the unit to tell which type of panzer I'm looking at. Once I've identified that info, I can usually retain it for the length of a scenario.
I can live without the animation since they do not add anything to the game for my tastes. I'm not playing a "shooter" game where graphics matter, I'm playing a wargame where gameplay and ease of information presentation do.
Thanks for listening.
