A tactical/operational simulation of the
largest Airborne operation of World War ell, this
game suffers from graphic sensory deprivation —
determining the road network is a lesson
in frustration. Also, input may not be readjusted
in mid-play, and overall, the user interface
is both clumsy and unforgiving.
The weather can also be either historical or
random. Cloudy days restrict the amount of air
support and the number of airborne reinforcements
for the Allies. Overcast days prevent both. Playing
with historical weather means both sides know
exactly when the second and third drops will occur
In solitaire play, the computer always plays the
Germans. It can be an easy or a tough opponent
depending on the level of difficulty selected. Small
battles develop around each drop zone, the most
desperate being farthest north. The way units are
jumbled together without well-defined lines and
the uncertainty about where, when, and in what
strength the enemy will appear next keep the game
interesting for both sides. Even better, an entire
game can be concluded in a single evening. I
recommend this game to all WW II fans.
