For some odd reason, this isn't as fun as Utah

The Good
This game is, basically, Utah Beach" moved a few miles to the east to cover the British and Canadian beaches. It uses the same excellent engine, and is basically a new mission set.

But for some reason the game isn't as much fun. Campaigns quickly degenerate into waiting for enough UK material to arrive, and slowly overwhelming the Germans. Now I suppose this is a good thing, because that's what happened historically. However it leaves little room for maneuver while you wait. Utah on the other hand has several chances for a breakout, which makes that scenario more interesting.

The Bad
Not much, the complaints were the same as the other games in the series.

The Bottom Line
Another fine effort, but if you're only going to play one, this isn't it.
