Obnoxious animations and zooming

The game itself has all the makings of a turn based strategy game that I would like; however the fluidity and playability are severely hampered by unnecessary animations and camera zooms. For example, every time you elect to attack an opposing soldier the camera zooms in awkwardly to show an animation of the attack and then the camera jerks back to full frame. And when you finish each turn a giant screen pops up asking if you're sure and then an animation of a tank comes across the screen that says "enemy turn". Same thing happens when it's your turn again. This happens EVERY turn! I could only play half an hour before it drove me crazy and I uninstalled.

It's a "great" little war game for a reason.

This game has features such as good graphics, funny little voices for your soldiers, cool dialogue from your equally humorous generalissimo. Don't forget all the maps you can play as well as the modes. Overall good game! 10/10

Thoroughly Addicting

Hard to put down. Sometimes, seemingly impossible. Gotta see what will happen with just one more move...

I've played through several times, including the add-on map packs, to see how to do things better. Only complaints are that you can't replay a specific map without running through all the maps, and that switching campaigns (map packs) isn't intuitive.

Now I want more map and voice packs. That would be sweet Where are more missions to play!?

There are a few annoying bugs: Sometimes your opponent's men can move more spaces than they should be able to, e.g. An engineer reaching an oil well in one move, whereas it takes two when you capture the same building. Also, sometimes enemies double up on a game spot. Two things should not be able to occupy the same space!

Lowering my rating by one point because the game isn't being updated as it should be. Though there is now a follow-on game, Great Big War Game, which is quite nice in its own right. If you like this, definitely check out the new one.
