I never played WiTE but did play WiTW (caught a sale on steam) as I was always fearful that the game was too deep and complex for me. I played WiTW and loved the game, but to be honest the Grand Campaign was simply too much for me despite reading the entire manual, living manual and 1-page guides several times.

With that in mind, I still decided to buy WitE2 as I like to support the genre and figured I would play at least the smaller scenarios and mini-campaigns. Thus far, I've worked my way to the Road to Leningrad and am having a ball with it. So far, I've been using the AI airwar and supply as I ease my way into the game. I think it was genius to add these two functions to keep the game from getting too overwhelming early on. By doing so, it allows the player to wean themselves into the game as I ordered the hardback manual and plan on reading the PDF version at my own pace. In fact, the game makes you WANT to read the manual, but these two new additions let you play the game and learn other aspects of the game before making the leap all the way in with both feet. Congrats the makers for a game that will be the gold standard for this genre for years!
