I dug out this old Talonsoft game and played it. It has a Squad Leader like phases for each turn, ie Prep Fire, Movement, Defensive Fire, Offensive Fire, Assault Phase, and Mechanized Movement Phase. Everytime a unit fires (friendly or foe) a little screen pops up and shows old B&W newsreel footage of WW2 soldiers firing rifles, mortars, AT guns, etc. After each unit fires it another little pop-up screen shows whether the target is eliminated, reduced by 1(+) step(s), disrupted, or no effect. Like the Campaign Series, it has a 3d and 2d displays, though the BGA's 3d normal view looks more like the Campaign Series' 3d zoom out view. It doesn't have a campaign game to play (or at least I can't find it), just individual scenarios. The game can be played against the A/I, Head-to-Head or by email. It also has a 'snapshot' capability. (see attachment)
Its a little difficult to view and the rigid phase/turn system is unconfortable to play after playing any of the Campaign Series games or a game like Steel Panthers or Panzer General. But true boardgaming grognards should enjoy it, if not love it outright! :)
I wonder if anyone else has played or still plays this game?
