As most people in the wargamer community already know, The Operational Art of War is one of the most comprehensive wargames available. The third version of the software includes a lot of user-made scenarios, minor tweaks, and support for Windows XP. The Operational Art of War III is really geared towards hardcore gamers, with its numerous options and excellent AI. Once you learn the mechanics of the game, playing The Operational Art of War III becomes quite fun (albeit challenging), and the sheer amount of scenarios available makes the replay value extremely high. Although there aren’t many large changes from previous version of the game (especially in the graphics department), The Operational Art of War III is still a really good wargame that lives up to the pedigree of the series. While simpler wargames may make it easier on new players, no other game can touch the flexibility of The Operational Art of War III.
