Review: Strategic Command WW2 - War in Europe

In a recent review I confessed a prior penchant for reading manuals virtually cover-to-cover before booting up a game for the first time, and how I seldom do that any longer.

Greetings,
Does this game have a NATO style counter option?
I don't care for the miniature style.
Thanks

Yes it does! You can switch between them I believe.

Indeed it does -- you can find screenshots of them in various places, including my feature http://www.wargamer.com/news/strategic-command-pre-release-special-naval-combat/ a couple of weeks ago as well as my (and others') AARs:

Thanx for reading & commenting!

This game really is the apogee of which I can call the intermediary genre of WW2 wargaming, old Panzer General series being an example. It is well worth the money invested. Although I am a bit disappointed that it isn't released on Steam.

Hi, All American,

Hi,
Is this an evolution of the of the older Strategic Command games? How does it compare? (I enjoyed them, and I would expect some exciting improvements over that time.)
Thanks,

Hi, Daemonelsos,

I'm afraid I can't help you there, as I haven't played any of the others. Perhaps someone else can chime in...?

Thanx for reading & commenting, though!

In a word, yes.
