An operational study of the Desert Campaign
in World War II, it offers a fascinating
study that will teach appropriate lessons in armored
desert warfare. More accurate than
Crusade in Europe, but narrower in
scope. Even with age, this game is still enjoyable.
Doubtless, the Command Series is growing on me with increased familiarity, and I do find desert warfare particularly fascinating, but even so, this game is an improvement over Crusade in Europe. It comes down to the simple fact that Decision in the Desert plays better. It's more of a free flowing game, as desert warfare should be. There is still more challenge to be had from SSI games (sorry, but comparison is inevitable). However, the Microprose titles are cheaper and just as well presented. If their quality continues to rise, we are all in for a treat.
Both products are recommended. CIE offers five
scenarios in one package, a bargain. While DITD
lacks a campaign scenario, the scale offers a reasonable
explanation. We can eagerly look forward to
the next Command Series game, Conflict in
Vietman. In 1969 who would have ever thought we
would be looking forward to conflict in Viet Nam!
