Product Description

Product Description

It's 1942 and you are spearheading your country's military drive; by planning strategic bombing raids, sneak submarine attacks, infantry attacks, and antiaircraft barrages. Plus, you also need to generate income, expand territory, and much more!

From the Manufacturer

The year is 1942. The Axis war machine appears invincible. The Balkans have fallen. Pearl Harbor has been attacked. Wake Island is in Japanese hands. And Rommel has the British on the run in North Africa. Only one game can put you in the middle of such a realistic wartime scenario. And that game is Axis & Allies. As the world powers battle for supremacy in 1942, you must spearhead your country's military drive. You will decide where to strike and when to strike: whether you make a strategic bombing raid, sneak submarine attack, hit-and-run infantry attack, or anti-aircraft barrage. Plan your attack. Move into the embattled territory with your forces and resolve the conflict. The economic destiny of your nation is also at stake. Buy armaments and develop secret weapons from your stockpile with an income based on successful territorial expansion. Whether played solo, multiplayer, or over the Internet, Axis and Allies will challenge you to decide the outcome of World War II.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good game, but buy the Iron Blitz Edition! November 16, 1999
By A Customer
This is the original Axis and Allies computer game. It is a fun game to play and plays exactly like the board game: units, technologies, game play, are all just like the board game the only thing missing are the pieces. The biggest problem is that the computer players are extremely weak, which means you will not have a good time playing this game alone. A related problem is that during multi-player games some rather strange things can happen, you will definitely need the patch offered at in order to play over the net or via direct connect successfully. So you cannot play it solo for very long and have fun and you may experience problems playing real live opponents, why should you buy this game? Well the game is very, very good at allowing you to practice, using the 'standard' opening moves or perhaps coming up with some new stategies in a quick manner. The game also supports the ability to use a 'time machine' to go back and replay a phase or whole turn over again, allowing you to try various things within a turn. This is extremely nice and no die-hard Axis and Allies board game player should be without a copy of the computer version. Just do not buy this edition of the game...read on...
The game has a new version: Axis and Allis: Iron Blitz Edition. This is NOT an expansion of the regular computer game, it is a complete version that tends to work better and has an expanded editor: Buy the Iron Blitz version of Axis and Allies, not this one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Despite compromises, A&A is a great WWII strategy game! January 22, 2004
Verified Purchase
One of the best map board-based war games of all time, Milton Bradley's Axis & Allies is an interesting and very exciting World War II strategy game. In college days of yore, a friend of mine and I bought our first game, with its hundreds of game pieces, dice, rulebook and colorful world map depicting a (very stylized) view of the war situation in the spring of 1942.
Axis & Allies is -- if you can still find a copy, that is -- a beautiful board game to see and play, but its main drawback is that it's time consuming to set up. You can't place your forces at random; each of the five major powers (USSR, Germany, United Kingdom, Japan and the U.S.) has a card telling players where they have to place their initial forces...on color coded regions all over the world. This process alone can take up at least 15 minutes, perhaps more.
Another problem was the duration of game play. Depending on one's grasp of the basic rules and analytical skills -- and my analytical skills were, back then, pretty rudimentary -- a single turn could take up more than 15 minutes, since each turn is divided into various steps (Weapons Development, Unit Purchase, Combat Moves, Non Combat Moves, and Fund Collection). Depending on your strategy and tactical realities at any given point, you can skip most of these if you have no viable options -- just don't forget to collect your funds, but in most cases the player who neglects a step can find him- or herself in deep trouble. That's one reason turns take so long. (The other is, of course, that you have to physically move the pieces, consult the game card and/or the rule book and roll the dice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Axis and Allies...An entertaining computer game! May 16, 2000
Axis and Allies is deffinately one of my favorite computer games. Although their have been many complaints of bugs on this game, it is well worth the money (you can download a patch for the bugs) This game offers good historical features of World War II, and anybody who likes World War II gaming will love this game! Even though a good game, I still enjoy the board game better. This game features excellent unit pictures and map, and will teach you a lot when it comes to stragety. (This game is all about stragety!) Although I would recommend the new "Axis and Allies Iron Blitz" Addition. It comes with many more features, including much better unit pictures historically accurate to the country's nationallity. It also comes with a much better computer intellegence. Overall, this game is a blast, and anybody who loves stragety games will not regret this game. Get it!

2.0 out of 5 stars Great Game, Astonishingly (Bad) Software November 22, 2000
"Axis and Allies" is a classic, well-balanced wargame that is easy to learn and play. It offers fantastic interaction between allies and manages to convey some of the complexity of strategic decision-making without bogging the player down in details like logistics or politics.
This software, however, is one of the worst-written things I have ever seen. It even plays like it's not object-oriented, the same parameters being controlled in different ways on different screens. It is full of bugs that are resolved by none of the available patches. In the Iron Blitz version, for example, if you are the defender in a naval battle and your only unit is a destroyer, the enemy's submarine hit will freeze the game because it does not check to see if there are units left to receive normal hits. When I complained about this bug, Tech Support told me to replace my video drivers! Pretty useless advice from a bad Tech Support Dept.
The AI, is, of course, simply horrible. If I were that bad, I wouldn't play. The AI lacks agression and buys pointless units. This game is not that hard to play, there is no excuse for this shoddy software.
It is playable with other humans, but Hasbro should rewrite it from scratch, using skilled coding and modern technique, because this implementation is not worthy of such a great game, or even of Hasbro itself. If that company's toy cars were so poorly designed and manufactured, the company would likely be defunct.
