I generally enjoy Panzer General type games but I've never had any desire to play any of the Sarni titles. They seem broken in many ways and I doubt I'd find much of value in them. My time and money will be spent elsewhere.

The music was, as everyone knows, simply awesome.<br/> <br/> I'm very interested in the sequel but I'm wondering if the game has been made too complicated. Also it looks like there are only two fa...

There are also PC games by Hexwar, Battles of the Ancient World and Ancient Battles, Hannibal. Not great games but cheap, interesting and fun.

I recently purchased The Battle Academy Series by Slitherine. A fun, tactical WW2 game that can be very challenging at higher difficulty levels.

Re: <t>The Best American Civil War Strategy Games</t>

That is Grand Tactician: Civil War, done by the same churl that did The Seven Years War. Now a question for both our esteemed editor (and my Boss) as well as the assembled, massive brainpower of the masses on the forum.

I'm a big fan of Panzer Corps and Klotzen looks quite interesting. Of course Panzer Corps 2 is the one I really want.
