This is another one of MicroProse's excellent simulations, which very cleverly allows for any degree of depth from the player. A novice can go in and have a good time on a basic level, while a more advanced player can make use of the wealth of background info in the manual, on tactics, technology and doctrine, to have a highly involved and enveloping strategy simulation.
Possibly M1 is too complex for the games enthusiasts. It does have a great sense of atmosphere, however, and the level of detail is certainly impressive. There is a strong strategic element which contrasts nicely with the in-tank moving and firing, so you are aware that you must try and win the battle using your training, reactions and leadership.

Arguably the best armor simulation available
on the market. Richly textured and complex. it succeeds more than most of its competition.
However, the computer has still not shown itself
to be a valid platform for detailed land
graphics in a fast-moving environment.
