Honestly a great game with fantastic graphics if your running a modern setup. This is perhaps the best fusion possible of RTS and FPS.
The action is visceral and you feel the pain when you see your men cut down by a tank or well placed artillery on the hill side. You can control the tactics and even the makeup of the team you want to manuever around with, pick up supplies and weapons, take over weapon platforms, choose the way and weapon with which you attack.....truly an in depth strategist dream and a micro-managers wet dream.
Drawbacks : You have to really pay attention to whats going on all around you. While this does add tremendous depth and excitement it also tends to lead to you loosing a lot of men . There is also soo many things at once, much like a real battle, that it can get confusing and disorienting real quick.
Qualities : A.I. that will destroy you if you are not paying attention. They are quick and responsive to your actions
Historical background sprinkled throughout is accurate and interesting
Visceral and obvious combat, fantastic graphics
large and complicated maps that require real skill to manuvere through...cant just meat-grind through this one.
