Latest in a long line of SSI games to reach these shores from the States is this one, two or three-player wargame simulating the war in Europe from 1939-45. Wargamers will instantly realise the scale of such a simulation and be wondering if it is not, perhaps, a little too ambitious.
Back in the old days, before world leaders who are too wimpish to start a war (good on them), storm clouds regularly gathered over the peaceful plains of Europe. Wars were about as regular as the Olympics and about as casual. The 20th century changed all that. No more popping off to war for a few years and coming home rich and famous. No more letters to The Times complaining that the tea supply had dried up. At last mankind had discovered total war in all its gore. One man most fondly remembered for giving his country-powered eggs, gas masks, the Blitz, evacuated children, air raid shelters, one rasher of bacon a week and Messerschmitt schoulder was Hitler. Now you, too, can stand in the shoes of a man who more than any other in history had a real chance of ruling the world.
Computer Gaming World (CGW)
Similar to the boardgame Hitler's War, except
the computer interface is much more
awkward. The graphics are primitive and the
documentation somewhat sparse. Yet, as a
game covering the entire Eastern and Western
Fronts of World War II, it can be fun to play.
Das Setzen der eigenen Truppen artet schon bald in stupides Herumgeklicke aus: Zahllose Untermenüs müssen aufgerufen werden, zudem sind die Waffensymbole klein und schlecht zu erkennen. Da verwundert es nicht, daß man es auch mit den historischen Gegebenheiten nicht besonders genau genommen hat. Alles in allem also ein weiteres Argument für Kriegsgegner:
keine Konflikte, keine dümmlichen Spiele wie dieses!
Too ambitious for its own good.
