Based on the more successful boardgame of the same name, its play mechanics are clumsy and its graphics are even worse. The color scheme has to be one of the worst ever seen in the computer field.

GS is a detailed game which can be played by both intermediate and advanced wargamers and provides the players with a wide variety of strategic options. The human-computer interface is nicely done considering the amount of items the program must handle. Much time in this game will be spent scrolling around the map, looking at units and giving orders with a short period of time spent in the normal "fast" combat resolution. For those of you more interested in strategy than tactics, this is a good feature; but the tacticians among you may find that the optional combat-by-combat resolution provides the tactical feeling you are looking for. Once you get to know what's under those Gold Stars, you will enjoy playing the game and have a good time securing the Middle East from Soviet influence.
