Default Get this Game!

I noticed there were no Messages in this thread. Since that might have a negative effect of new buyers, let me praise this game.

It was released buggy and got bad reviews in some places. Pointing out bugs is ok but some of the reviews were way off base.

I find this game, as patched, to be the most engrossing single soldier historical game around. In terms of realism and play, it's superior to Hidden and Dangerous; forget about Soldiers at War and Commandos.

The game has no "Sgt. Rocks" going pn extraordinary missions, It's aboout GIs performing real missions. There's a choice between management scales and requirements for thought in handling troops. The casuality rate during jumps was a primary criticism but I find it bogus. Those jumps were tough. Disorganization was rampant for the 101st on D-Day. Collecting the scattered troops to accomplish the mission is a testimony to these guys and is the challenge of the game.

Buy it; you'll like it.
