This is a great wargame that plays very differently than any other game I've tried. There is a chess-like element to the game in that you are always trying to think ahead and see which pieces can protect each other and try to predict how a battle will play out. You always feel that you are in control - almost. Because there is always one more element you hadn't considered or one modifier you didn't take into account. In short, it is a unique and great experience for anyone who like lots of confrontation in their games.
