Here is an example of an operational level game reviewed by a gamer who does not generally enjoy operational simulations:


As it turns out Enrico Vigliano not only finishes the game, but loves it!

This is all so much more fun on a computer.

Computer screens cause me eye-strain.

And I generally play these game solo. I hate computer bot opponents and am I not interested in game-balance. I am looking for an insight into military history.

If I want a face-to-face balanced game I play chess.

Funny you should mention historical accuracy. Just picked up a copy of "Silent Hunter 5" and, after I upgrade my video card, I will be able to sink allied shipping from the fin of my period correct German Uboote. Have tried it for one patrol and liked the fact the limited fuel, stores, ammunition are correct for the class and time period. For insistance, I learned a type 7A did NOT carry a reload for the aft tube. Looking forward to my next patrol, apparently I will be off the east UK coast, hopefully target rich!

I had many happy hours blasting my Wm. Britains toy soldiers with a Britains 4.7 inch naval gun, with matchsticks. Later we graduated to Airfix tank battles. Violent mayhem was usually the result. :D
