    World at War is an excellent introductory level wargame with a ton of depth and plenty of replay value.

    Addictive and fun, World at War is like Axis & Allies on steroids.

    Rated on May 26, 2008 by bcsasso

    This is a very enjoyable strategy game with complexity and detail on par with the Panzer General series, but on a global scale. It's a reasonable step up in difficulty from Axis & Allies, but not nea...
