This is not just the best wargame on iOS, it’s the best wargame on this subject I’ve ever played (and I’ve been playing these things for 40 years now). It really delivers an outstanding recreation of the various scenarios, and the graphics are excellent (despite what the boneheaded comment says abov...

<t>Wow, you really blew it by not highlighting Carrier Battles 4 Guadalcanal. I'm a 30-year grognard on the subject (my grandfather served with the Seabees there), and that is the best game on the subject I've ever played - board or computer. It's also the most interesting period of the Pacific War,...

Why not just play ???Achtung Spitfire??? on a Mac or Win98 emulator? That was a great game, same subject matter, the interface was excellent and also based on a series of great board games. It???s also free (at this point).

To the author: Great article, and makes want to dust off HOI3 actually.

Can you suggest what Mods and DLC (for HOI3) to run for someone who's looking for a lot less sandbox and a lot more historical narrative, within which I can make different Operational decisions?

<t>Why doesn't someone just do a straight conversion of the miniature rules? Look at the brilliant Battlefleet Gothic: Leviathan. It's vastly better than the fancy RTS-ified BFG Armada. Having played the tabletop versions of these games for years, I can tell you they're exquisitely balanced, playabl...

<t>Great news that the battles are now saved! Now, just a couple more things and this game is perfect: <br/> 1) Some kind of "Don't Waste My Time" option to speed up enemy movement and torps.<br/> <br/> 2) De-Nerf the Nova Cannon. Right now, you'd be a fool to choose any of the many Nova Cannon-equi...

Incredible game. Seriously, you don't even have to care about WH40k to love this game. It's made me appreciate just how deep and interesting the underlying miniatures game was.

Playing the tutorial on my little Dell Venue 8 Pro tablet and I can tell you it's a masterful job so far. Runs beautifully (as if it's on an iPad Air 2 or so) and easy to use. These Playdek guys have good programmers.
