That looks 'Loin-Moistening' to me.  O0

After those screenshots one would need the Titanic to navigate my loins.

Thank you for the offer, had help from different players without sucess. But maybe the problem is on me, i"m a nativ Panzergeneral player and PS is a different thing. However, i dont touch this game anymore. In anyway, a stratgame without hexfields felt always a little strange to me.

Hi Micha,

FOG2 has 6 levels of difficulty, and the default level (level 2) is easier than P&S. (Level 2 is equivalent to P&S level 1, and so on with level 6 being equivalent to P&S level 5). You should be able to find one to suit you. Failing that, in Skirmish mode you can set custom points totals for each side.

Also, in hindsight, we made the historical scenarios too difficult in P&S at the lower settings. We have not made that mistake in FOG2, but the 6 difficulty levels ensure that there will be an enjoyable challenge for players of all levels of ability.

Hotseat is must for such a game, but for me I still need the PBEM system and I guess many would like it to be there as well, the time difference and little time to play make it difficult to play multiplayer in real time for long period, PBEM made me play a lot of multiplayer games without to be worried about those issues.

Hi Tpek/Raied,

The game does have a true Hotseat mode.

Will this be DLC galore like the first title? I never jumped in cause I was late to the party and getting all the stuff turned out to be a much higher investment than what I was willing to pay.


The AI wasn't all that challenging in the first one. 

Then the pricey DLC started landing...


I enjoyed the original FOG, despite complaints.  But the very costly DLCs broke my will to continue.

I'm sure this new version, using this more successful engine, will be more to my liking... and hopefully more affordable in the long run.
I got my game and DLC in the Christmas sale. It's not perfect but is a very enjoyable game, especially multiplayer.

The new campaign system sounds interesting.

I'd still prefer some kind of campaign map layer, but the previous iterations of such a thing, in this game engine, fell short.  Was still glad to have it, but it needed more. 

I guess they decided to go with the multi-choice branching campaign this time around.  Not normally my fave, but I'll be optimistic for a wargame covering a favorite era.
