This is the original Axis and Allies computer game. It is a fun game to play and plays exactly like the board game: units, technologies, game play, are all just like the board game the only thing missing are the pieces. The biggest problem is that the computer players are extremely weak, which means you will not have a good time playing this game alone. A related problem is that during multi-player games some rather strange things can happen, you will definitely need the patch offered at in order to play over the net or via direct connect successfully. So you cannot play it solo for very long and have fun and you may experience problems playing real live opponents, why should you buy this game? Well the game is very, very good at allowing you to practice, using the 'standard' opening moves or perhaps coming up with some new strategies in a quick manner. The game also supports the ability to use a 'time machine' to go back and replay a phase or whole turn over again, allowing you to try various things within a turn. This is extremely nice and no die-hard Axis and Allies board game player should be without a copy of the computer version.
