Summary

Simplistic, yet Universal...a real tribute to the original.

The Good

Loved designing the maps.....god I have some wierd ones.

The Bad

The battle scenes just develop too fast. Even with a finger on every hotkey, one barely has the time issue more than two or three orders before everyone is dead.

The Bottom Line

I discovered this jewel late in my gaming life, after much time invested in the more complex war titles. It is still very playable. The map and senario editor are lacking in many recent games.
