I was seduced by a Christmas sale on a John Tiller game. It was made in 2008, and is/was promised to be the first in a series covering all of the European theater. The second game covers the Med up to 1943. Each game in the series uses a portion of the same map, which is huge. I have read that Tiller intends to make more games in the series, but I'll not be expecting any soon, I guess. I believe this game was patched as recently as 2013?? Not sure.
Graphics are passable enough not to detract, but not inviting. The UI is simple, easily learned. Air units are off-board by theater, and can be called in for recon, interdiction, superiority, ground support. The screenshot shows a modded map.
Combined arms is implemented, many unit types. Stacking. High-level HQs. Supply extended by rail and mobile supply units.
17 scenarios from Poland to the Fall of France, Sealion, and a what if there was no Sitzkrieg.
screenshot is from the tutorial scenario, centered on the Polish Corridor.
I give it about a 7 out of 10 so far, which could rise as I get into some more interesting scenarios.
Also, the AI is apparently based upon work that Tiller did for the military. Supposedly better than his older games.
