World at War - Stalingrad

The Good
Excellent game. Good AI. Good graphics - not a shootem up, so graphics not a memory hog. I've played this game hundreds of times, and it hasn't gotten boring. Stalingrad demands that you think about the biggest potential force multiplier or divider - supply. Really, the game is in a league of its own.

The Bad
No ability to create new scenarios - there are multiple scenarios and the ability to play either side. I was unable to crack into the game and create larger maps with new units in new positions. A game editor is a must. I would like to play the whole Eastern front scenario with both sides.

The Bottom Line
Difficult. It started as a board game and then as a computer game. I think it would be described as a game for serious people who wanted to use their minds. It is not a flashy Duke Nukem. It requires patience and intelligence.
