I'm also not crazy about sci-fi settings.  I can get behind a good SF novel or film, but in terms of gaming (especially wargames) I tend to prefer things based in historical reality, as I find it hard to get behind "six goog-goggles engaging eleven shoop-dorples" tactical thinking.

That said, I think this game absolutely nails the "wargame set in a Mad Max world" feeling so well that I love the game despite part of me wishing it was WW2.  It still feels grounded in real-life despite the inclusion of futuristic technology like laser guns and sentient fighting robots.  The operational/tactical thinking still feels like classic ATG with a cool coat of Mad Max paint.

You should all really stop saying how awesome this game is.  I don't know if I can wait until it releases on Steam.  I will say I am not super crazy about a Sci-Fi setting as that isn't usually my cup of tea (which I don't drink).  If that sounds like you and you are playing the game and still loving it, I'd like to hear from you.

Well, if you need a counterpoint, I'm finding it a bit overwhelming at the moment.  There is a lot to consider each turn.  I'm confident I'll get my head round it all at some point (loved ATG), but just now I'm ploughing through (and re-watching) Das Tactics' vids rather than actually playing.

There's too many games with Shadow in the title.  I'm so confused.  Haha!

Another thing, as opposed to most other 4X games this one is wargame 4x. War takes some prep, getting your roads/rail up and running with supply dumps and truck stations, getting replacements in the pipeline, produce enough ammo to fight with, and all this takes away from growth in other areas. I've only met minor regimes, so don't know how foreign diplomacy is, but man if that is good, this is one fine game with just a crap load of replay. All this out of the gate, man Vic :notworthy:
