Conartists has never let me down, you guys "R" beaztz!
First rate strategy
Another great effort from Con-Artists. The gameplay is pretty simple, but it's surprisingly fast moving which takes some getting used to. People looking for a realistic wargame should look elsewhere, but otherwise this is outstanding. I love the WWI setting, and the game uses it to provide a surprisingly original experience.
All told, I really enjoyed this game.
Curiouser and Curiouser
I really liked this. For one thing, I never saw a First World War game before - and I was looking out for one. For another, the REASON I don't think I ever saw one before is that the First World War was essentially one-dimensional - you were either going forward or being driven back, in and out of the trenches. You captured this aspect perfectly.
In an additional note, I liked the fact that the newspaper at the end said things like "Going to War Justified?" and "War Drives Up Price of Horse Feed." You've got a weird sense of humor.
Mines are a bad idea without....
some sort of anti-mine equipment. Weather it be specialists or a mine sweeper of some sort. I gave up at exploding ground because you couldnt find them and they blew the hell out of your units and destroyed the moral. I loved this game though. Please take my suggestions into consideration when you make your next one.
It's a good game
But there are just a few small problems.
1 The riflemen are too weak, they should be able to beat an assault team 1 on 1, otherwise they have no purpose.
2 you can't shape a battlefield with the custom battle function
and 3 you can't order you're units to defend anything but a trench or to go back.Other than those this game is great.
