This game is a WW2 Real-time-strategy. It has no real battles that you really fight on a battlefield...Its all map-based, but still great and challenging. Its a very well in-depth game...Has like 5000 regions and you can play as ANY faction. Has 4 systems, Diplomacy, Production, Military, Technology (And intelligence if you get the patch or expansion).....Everything from rain to shore bombardment, supplies, and everything matters in a fight. Industry levels, resources, manpower are all factors of producing war machines. Its got everything in WW2 you can imagine...Ships, planes, nukes, flying bombs, planes, paratroopers, mountain infantry, motorized infantry, tanks, heavy tanks, medium tanks, artillery. 50-100 different things. Look it up...I've learned many new strategies from the game in combat. 2 of which are VERY useful and VERY tricky. But they will make my attacks COMPLETELY unpredictable.
