As a avid wargamer, I love playing tabletop wargames from Squad-Leader to Axis & Allies. The one problem with table top wargaming is keeping all the details, ranges, units, etc. in tact. As a general you usually have aids and other officers helping to decipher all the details. While playing a table top wargame you have to keep track of everything yourself. This also slows the game down. The other thing that I always found lacking in table top gaming is Fog-of-war. You are always, for the most part, able to see what your opponent is doing.
Computer gaming has allowed for taking the table top wargaming to the next level. Keeping extensive online databases of unit information, calculating max fire effects, movement cost, indirect fire, and more. Computer wargaming has also been able to introduce counter maps and full 3D views.
With the addition of Play-By-EMail (PBEM(, the ability to design maps and scenarios, and change the look of the units (yes, you can modifiy the BMP files and change the looks of each unit), everything a wargamer wanted is now complete.
World at War (EastFront II, WestFront, and Rising Sun) have encapsulated all these abilities and more.
If you like turn-based games, WWII, table-top wargaming, ability to play by email or hotseat, and a strong AI. This is for you.
Of course I will pull out Axis and Allies when I want a good beer and chips game to play with friends, but when it comes to serious wargaming I reach for West Front to play North Africa and Western Europe, EastFront II for Russia and the Eastern Europe, or Rising Sun for the Pacific theater.
There are many websites with tons of new scenarios, information, strategy articles, and opponents to play. ...This was the best game purchase I have made in a long time and it resides on my laptop and home computer.

You get over 350 different scenarios on 3 cds!! That is enough for most people to go out and get a game. I really enjoy playing in the different campaign locations that seem so realistic for where they are. The Germans are the nastiest simply because they have the best weapons throughout the war and this is illustrated beautifully by Talonsoft.
The ONLY drawback to the game(s) is that the boxed set comes without a manual for you to read or go over while cutting your teeth on the tutorials. This lack of documentation makes the learning curve a little harder than it has to be, seeing how you have to figure out what all the stats and how to use them thru trial and error.
All in all, once you get past the learning curve, the game becomes very enjoyable. If you are on the fence about getting this game, please, do yourself a favor and get it. It is well worth it!!

To think any of us would have paid this price for one of the game individually. Now you have them all. It is a pleasure playing from the African Desert to Guadalcanal; and everything in between. With this bundle, you should be kept busy playing for the next year or two.

Although I already have Eastfront, its expansion and Westfront, I was still compelled to purchase this. Why ? Because this package includes Fall of the Reich, Westfront expansion, Risingsun and more scenarios again in Eastfront. This package represents the final end product(s) after all the fine tunning and there is just so much in this package that it is unbelievable that it is priced as if it were one game. This is a must if you are into wargaming, you simply cant beat this for value for money.

Having played the Campaign series games since the first inception "East Front" and eventually migrating to the newer updates such as West Front, East Front II, and Rising Sun I have found them to be extremely challenging as far as turn based WW II games go. Each release brings improvements in the game engine and graphics, While I give this game 5 stars (a somewhat biased opinion) Their is one thing lacking which seems to be the case with all WW II games and that is the factual listing of Units and Formations. But here is where the flexibility of the game has been changed. Their are many clubs world wide that sponsor these games and allow many players to challenge each other which makes for added excitement. either PBEM or face to face online with up to 8 players (team games) can play online in this excellent drama of WW II. I myself belong to The Blitzkreig Wargamers Club and am proud to be a part of a great bunch of players. With my recent move into staff position I along with other fellow Historians worldwide and Programmers are developing what should be the most precise Orders of battles files ever in the History of WW II gaming. The CS games are easy to learn and anyone can defeat the AI in short time unless you value your relationship then it may take longer :-)
Ulitmately playing against other human opponents via email or online vastly improves the game experience While this is to be the last series released by Talonsoft their will be a release written by our group that will update all the units and we hope to have it official from TS (talonsoft) with their blessing.
So if you enjoyed playing boardgames as a kid, teenager, or adult I recommend playing the Campaign Series and what better deal than to get all 3 games under one title "World at War".
