I had this on the original Xbox. If I recall correctly, it wasnít half bad. With that in mind though, know that this was originally developed for consoles.

Oh wow itís on Steam and in English?  I had an older version bought from Japan (real PC game and not a console port).  Itís a neat war game.  Itís like Empire, Advanced Wars, Advanced Tactics, Panzer General... I once asked Matrix to localise them but they said itís a lot of effort.

The company has WW2 games too. Pacific Theater goodness.

Yep, I had the original on my xbox as well. It was fun and I even spent the time to make my own maps, with a console controller!

I'd be interested in this one too but $57 CDN seems a tad expensive... especially since the graphics don't look much different than the original....

I also have the original game for X-Box. Quite a detailed and outstanding game, ahead of its time. No generic tanks, but Abrahms, and T-72's.

And infantry squads had individual weapons (rifles, firearms, mandpads) like Steel Panthers

I found this game very, very difficult to navigate on the x-box.

Canít even achieve to do anything in this PC version. Have yet to read the manual.  UI is not intuitive.

Despite my intense interest, I never conquered the AI. Shame...technically well ahead of its time.

Awesome game.  I have a version of this game, Japanese localisation, for PSP.  Haven't played in ages so I might want to pick this up if it's available on PS4.

Reading the manual, I can see a lot of details in this game.  Fuel, supply, fatigue, ECM, altitude levels, cruise missiles, ambushing... thereís a lot to like... if you actually get in the groove of things.
