Summary

Fantastic intelligent Concept game making 4.5 out of 5

The Good

The depth and scope of Midwinter is just fantastic. The backdrop, the setting, the Map, even the crude polygon graphics have a certain charm to them, seeing a village emerge from the gloomy landscape after a 20min ski trip. If only all games where as Imaginitive and engrossing as this one.

Midwinter is a title, like CARRIER COMMAND, that could do with a comtemporary remake, as mentioned in the other reviews. It can certainly be looked on as a precursor to many things gamers now take for granted such as first person sniping,

The Bad

I believe it was flawed in the fact all you had to do was get a man to the south of the island and blow the HQ up which was quite easy to do and thus bypass all the guerrilla war aspect that the games.

The Bottom Line

Worth a look for research purposes alone not sure if it plays on emulators. It doesn't on my Mac unfortunately.

I never played Midwinter 2, which I think is more complicated, and there is another game called Ashes of Empire which is way over complicated and not much fun.
