I found the first review funny. I liked this, this, this, this, and this, AND this, and it does this well.... I give it an average rating lol.
Thanks for posting these. I have been looking for reviews since it came out. Had a hard time finding them. I do think the reviews are accurate for the type of players that are reviewing them. Traditional wargames get it, casual ones have a hard time with it because they aren't used to pure wargame. For a wargamer the mechanics and interface are simplified, for a casual gamer they are complex and unintuitive because they are used to LMG click, LMB move, LMB action, next unit kind of games.
But I think enough casual gamers will keep being interested in it and I will covert casual gamers to wargamers.
I thought the reviews were pretty fair on the good and bad points.
Making a manual is incredibly difficult. The 1st time through I went through it 3x and still missed so much. In future releases, just like in WarPlan, the manual will be updated in game. It will be the printable version without the fancy-shmancy background.
