Red Lightning is probably one of the best presented wargames SSl have produced. I found it a pleasure to use. No obscure, multi-layered menus here. While detail is good, some of the basic research is weak. For example, SSI advocate that the F-117 should perform strike missions. It is designed, solely, for reconnaissance missions, it has about as much strike capability as my big toe. However, even with the odd wrinkle Red Lightning is a quality product.

World War III in Central Europe. The game has some interesting concepts (e.g. forward deployment of subordinate units albeit at a cost of added fatigue), but the user-friendliness/ clumsiness of inputs is so awkward as to make the product a tedious chore rather than an interesting or enlightening experience.
