The Games Machine (UK)
Fire Brigade is a quality product which should reside amongst any wargamer's collection. Strangely, the PC version is superior to the Amiga. The latter has a rather slow screen update and while it has excellent graphics, the PC's EGA graphics are even better as they are in high resolution. However, the update does not spoil the Amiga version too much.
ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
If you're after a simple, easy and quick wargame you can forget Fire-Brigade. Although the game structure is very user-friendly, it takes time to play well, and there are too many options offered and decisions required to make it a walkover. Spend some time getting to know the game, though, and you'll be playing it for months to come.

A simulation of the 1943 battles around Kiev
on the Eastern Front. Good documentation
and excellent packaging have yielded a game
that has withstood the test of time, although
the learning curve is somewhat long.
