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.
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!!
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".
