Alas, I think you're probably right. Still, hope of turn based, and even two player can live until fuller details come.

Given how bloody beautiful Graviteam's vehicle models have become in Mius Front -- have to say I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with the M3 Lee/Grant.  Somehow the more hideous WW2 contraptions have always held a special fascination for me.

by turn based do they mean like CMx2 game play where you can pause, issue orders and let er rip?

More like a Total War game.  There's a strategic map overlay where you move units around the map, resupply, rest, add reinforcements, stuff like that.  You then end the turn and wherever your units and the enemy meet on the strat map, a battle occurs.  You click on the battle icon and are dropped into a 3D battle that plays out in real-time.

wow....that sounds pretty slick. This type of game play new for their games? I've never played one of their titles.

Interesting.

Is there a demo for one of their games? Is there a title more suited for beginners?

I'll poke around online.

Thanks

Sorry, bro...knowing your tastes, I'd say don't even bother with this series. It will only frustrate you.

I have all thier games and the UI drives me nuts. Course others really like it too.

The UI is unquestionably "different", but I don't think it is necessarily bad. Its like anything else, once you learn it, it works and is very functional. It just happens to not always be so intuitive.

Overall, I think these are fantastic games well worth the investment in time.

I didn't read all the posts so my bad if it was already covered, but is this newer game using the same basic engine as Mius Front or is something different?

My problem is that I have never investmented the time.  :( Family and work slow down my gaming time.

For those looking for Tunisia games to play after discovering a new found interest in the theater, MMP just released Baptism by Fire: The battle of Kasserine Pass. This is the 2nd in the new BCS (battalion level) series by Dean Essig. I just started soloing the full campaign for Last Blitzkrieg, the Bulge game that debuted the series. I own both and will be jumping on game 3, Stalingrad, as soon as it's available for preorder.

"Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves."
