What Reviewers are Saying:
“Not only does Drive on Moscow match the deft, beguiling presentation of its predecessor, but nearly every decision has the heft of a Soviet hammer.” - Pocket Tactics
“…if you liked Battle of the Bulge, this is about as must-have as it gets for you.” - Touch Arcade
“The ultimate question isn’t whether Drive on Moscow is the most realistic war game of the Moscow campaign, but rather whether it teaches you something about history, allows you to have fun and makes the experience convenient. Where the Germans failed to take Moscow, Drive on Moscow succeeds as a game.” – War is Boring
“This sequel is just as deep and engrossing as the original” - Pocket Gamer
"Drive on Moscow is in so many ways the ultimate example of strategy gaming, because it's one of the few that requires genuine military strategy of its players in order for them to succeed." - Digitally Downloaded
"Für Liebhaber von Wargames geht kein Weg an diesem Schmuckstück vorbei, zumal man sich auch online wunderbar duellieren kann." - 4Players.de

Great turn based wargame
At first, I was put off by the previous reviewer that said could not duplicate Army Group Center's operational tactics. But ...
3 breakthrough lanes (3 panzer units):
(1) North (i.e. Game left) Vladimirskoye
(2) Center (middle) Zhukova
(3) South (game right) Shostka
* Interdict armor at Bryansk
* Use 1st prepared offensives at 3 lanes
* Use 2nd prepared offensives North & Center
* Do no other attacks
* Use movement only for mobile follow-on
* Encircle Bryansk & Vyazma
* Practice using PvP mode
Love turn based games with a twist: back & forth moves & battles that puts a paramount importance on positional warfare:
(1) Hit the enemy where they are most vulnerable in numbers & terrain
(2) Surround the rest & starve them
(2) Make the enemy attack your best defense in numbers & terrain to your advantage
How else do you think the War in the East lasted so long: sledge hammers only work if you have the numbers. German sludge hammers failed at Stalingrad while the Russians broke threw the vulnerable German allies. The German sledge hammer approach will also fail at the Gates of Moscow.
Battle to move - move to battle
Movement costs time - battles cost lives
Living to keep on moving,
First of all, let me say I am quite grateful that someone actually made this game, or games of this genre for the iPad.
That being said, this game simply does not work. If you are of the school that says that you should be roughly able to duplicate what happened historically. You can't do that in this game. Basically to be successful, you have to sledge-hammer your way through the Soviet lines, which is not what Army Group Centre was doing at that stage of the war.
The areas are too small. Armour does not move far enough. What made the Germans almost successful was the ability to exploit breakthroughs with their tanks and move swiftly over long distances, and encircle large bodies of troops. The exact same tactics the Soviets and Americans used later in the war. This is more like playing World War I battles.
Best wargame for iOS
This is by far the most fun tactical and strategic game for the iPad. The first few playthroughs I didn't really have the hang of it. However now I can win most games. It's all about punching through your enemy line and driving forward as much as possible. But the AI is good… And a lot of fun to play. When you get bored against The AI there appears to be good online play as well.
