I am amazed that it actually posted to the site. I have never had any problems with saving or going back to any other review.

Anyway, it is a good game if you are prepared for its depth.

Desert theater is not on my "top list"
East front is...........

Don't get me wrong, This is a great game.
A wish list would be early Russian units in the scenario editor. That would be a DLC though.......
Too bad.

Best line ever:

"It is not a game that you can start and then play for a half hour, and then head off to dinner..."

Boy did we fail here. Brian and I stated this was exactly our goal many times...almost the same words...come home from work, spend 15-30 minutes to do your turn, and then go eat dinner.

Simplify and reduce is the way ahead I think.

Next game will cover battles from an Eastern Front campaign.
