The Games Machine (UK)
UMS isn't as complex as SSI wargames and is restricted to ground conflict (naval, air and combined forces warfare aren't catered for). What it does offer is a powerful wargame program with the flexibility of an extensive user-friendly construction kit within a realistic 3D setting - all superbly presented.

Joker Verlag präsentiert: Sonderheft
Mittlerweile sind auch zwei Szenariodisks erschienen, die die Palette der historischen Schlachten erweitern. UMS ist in seiner Vielfalt und mit seinen unzähligen Gestaltungsmöglichkeiten wirklich einzigartig — ein absolutes Muß für jeden Table Top-Spieler und Liebhaber von Konfliktsimulationen. Wer unter dem Begriff Simulation jedoch die naturgetreue Darstellung von Freund und Feind versteht, sollte besser die Finger von diesem Programm lassen.

A visual feast, but a playable desert, U.M.S. is incorrect on two counts—it is neither universal nor a simulator. It lacks a naval option, and the user interface is quite clumsy. The initial disk includes the Battles of Arbela, Hastings, Marston Moor, and Waterloo (the last of which omits the Prussians in toto).
