Slitherine was best known several years ago for it's strategy PC titles such as Legion, Chariots of War, and Spartan, all excellent historical empire building games. Their Great Battles: Medieval, a full-fledged tactical unit combat simulation based on the 100 Years War between England and France, is an epitome to be aspired to by war sim strategy developers. This WWII boardgame style sim is uncommon and greatly appreciated. 5 Stars
Okay Is good. Needs better artillery results, ai gets way too many good rolls and even on lowest levels units seem invincible. Otherwise fairly decent. Needs air force.UPDATE: whatever you did, the Russians are just way too strong in the beginning of any game! SHOCKED REDUCED INFANTRY BEATING SS AND REGULAR ARMOR???? Please correct this...Update 2: forget it folks. Russians still to strong and battles get lopsided fast.
Fantastic While combat is simplified to attack and defence strength, this is an engaging eastern front game. I spent an entire Sunday rejecting the outside world in my quest to both fight off the Nazi war machine and then conquer the Soviet union. Loafs of fun.
Fantastic wargame There is lot of replayability here, the strategy and units you deploy are entirely your decision which makes for some awesome fights and military maneuvers such as encircling and combined arms. Heavily impressed with this title .I put it off for a long time due to the price(which is still super cheap for what u get)but knowing what I missed out on I would have bought it ASAP! If u like wargames u will certainly like this.
Not bad, but no single-player option. Emulates two-person war games a-la Third Reich. Best wargame I've seen for Android, but bar is low. Still, Grognards could do worse than buying this game for WWII on the Eastern Front.
Beer & pretzels Ai is semi-decent but can easily be defeated. Concentrate armor & encirclement. Earliest victory June 42 for axis & March 43 reds on ++. Avoid strong points & defensive terrain. Best results to breakout northeast for axis and reds to give up ground for time, reinforcements, & stiffen your defensive line. If u head for the hq and kill it, the whole army loses supplies and then the game. Should have air and artillery should not be in due to the scale as it is supposed to be integrated with our units.
Fixed 3 issues:
-Issue with upgrade raw cost
-Issue with inability to upgrade reduced Panzer Grenadiers.
-Issue with oil cost being double on succesfully taking an enemy hex through combat
-Yes, yet another version. Not sure what happened, but sometimes with updates something gets broken by accident. This version should fix things.
-very small fix of a rare AI bug.
Multiplayer Strategy at its best. More fun than chess. Get smarter Play it.
