Summary

My Childhood x86

The Good

I would play this game for hours... It had multiple levels of gameplay, allowing for troop position, or formation, prior to battle etc. Then battle commencement was fought out with nervous tension. It didn't have plot, as such, but certain strategies were epic. Also, at my age it had the aura of actual history, which inspired me in no small part to be the student of history I am today. It is one of my happiest memories. Which is cheezy. yes..8)

The Bad

Spies were almost worthless. Um...If I recall the bit music would get a bit grinding as well.

The Bottom Line

good, I was hoping whoever owns the rights would have released them by now to open source... would be fun as flash.
