Greetings to All,
GMT Command & Color Ancients PC version of boardgame is reviewed at wargamer:(HexWar)
https://www.wargamer.com/reviews/review-commands-and-colors-ancients/

3-D game sprites perspective has a slight resemblance to Field of Glory II.

Thanks for the link. Was unaware. Need to determine replayability, assuming no editor. Releasing on Steam is the ultimate test of any game. Going there now...

Well, i am in other wargames forum and guy that love the tabletop buy the PC game and refund after 1 battle... he define the game as "another hexwar game" in general feels like a poor conversion for PC and well, 3D is a positive point if is well done and not copy paste models for 3 total different nations.

I continue with FOGII dont plan waste money in a half cooked game with no editor, skirmish, multi and copy paste art.

The "Hexwar" puts me off too...

That said, it seems Hexwar is giving back support these past months, at least there on the ball now so who knows. Zackblood stated the same on a earlier post with regards to support IIRC.

Here´s all the "Hexwar" you can handle at €1

PD.: Hexagon = Ostwind?

Even if they pay me 1€ i need think twice before have the pack...

Apart this i follow the WWI colors title and the lack of support is another extra motive to have the title in ice.

No, no Ostwind

I am not a C & C board gamer so I could not critique the WWI game based on that.

As a pure digital game on the iPAD, I found it very stable and entertaining and I still play it now and then.

I'll pick up C & C Ancients only on IOS - since it is a very large step up from the usual IOS strategy gaming fare of scantily clad animated women trying to sell me (for real money) virtual gold or gems in order to purchase units.

Bought, tested, a little buggy, good AI.
I like this kind of game.
I regret that Matrix / Slitherine does not offer it.

the only hex war games i don't own is this one and Wars and Battles Normandy, beer and pretzel they maybe, and lacking in support somewhat at times, but atm there forum well steam replies and patches have improved to a point that most games now are patched and working well with a new team member who has been tasked to do it, and tbh he has done it very well so far i must admit, with little time from posts to replies, and while not all i've got have been played as yet, anything i've found has been patched soon enough,...

just looking at the steam reviews and forum replies and developer comments, seems everything so far pointed out as faulty is in the process of being looked at, replicated and hopefully fixed asap

13 SEPTEMBER and 14th etc update and feedback wise etc.

looking at forum posts to forum developer times re replies on steam, so far it's well improved imo, and tbh very hard to beat.
