Quotes

M. Evan Brooks about the game:
its play mechanics are embarrassing in the contemporary market; in fact, its play mechanics were embarrassing when it was initially released.
M. Evan Brooks is an avid wargamer who retired with more than thirty years of service in the U.S. Army and National Guard. He is a contributor to numerous war-game and professional military publications.
Avalon Hill was an early entrnt in the computer gaming field, but their initial productions, such as B-1 Bomber and Midway Campaign, were disappointing given Avalon Hill's enviable reputation in the realm of conventional board wargames. The early Avalon Hill games lacked color and were less engrossing than the company's experience in game design warranted.
- Brian J. Murphy (Creative Computing Vol. 9, N. 9, September 1983, page 192).
