Well marc420, if you disliked UV, you may not like WiTP either. I actually like some of the things you say you don't like. I like the logistics. And I like it when the chaos of war means my guys don't always do what I expect. Apart from that, the game does have much of the look and feel of UV, so if you disliked that interface, you may not love this either. There are many improvements to the UV engine in WiTP, such as more options to automate logistics, but in the end it's not for everyone.
Me, I loved UV, and I love this game even more. The scope is just awe-inspiring. I'm sitting here fighting the entire Pacific war with individual ships, aircraft, and pilots, day by day. (Yes, there are 2- and 3-day turn options. Not for me.) For me, it doesn't get any better than this.
