    Good game, unappreciated by the impatient masses

    Theatre of War has gotten quite a bad bunch of reviews from these posters. To be honest with you all, I'm not sure why. The game has plenty intuitive control, and the tutorial covers everything from movement to line of s... Read Full Review

    Pass on Theatre of War

    This has been a huge disappointment. I expected the same level of greatness from Battlefront that was attained with their Combat Mission series. It's not even close. The game is virtually unplayable in its present for... Read Full Review

    Worst of Worst

    This is the worst piece of crap to come out of Battlefront and I do not recommend buying this at this point in time. It has more bugs, problems and issues than you can shake a stick at and at $55 a pop that's just giving... Read Full Review

    Not worth it.

    I really had high expectations for this title.Having come over from the Combat Missions series.The designers of this title advertised it as realistic which is far from the truth.The AI is totally broken and needs major f... Read Full Review

    Finally, a WW2 RTS with dynamics approaching realistic battlefield distances!

    First off, I have been looking forward to this game since Oleg Maddox first announced work on it several years ago. Knowing his team's work on the IL2 series of WW2 combat flight sims, I expected great things and am ple... Read Full Review

    Solid WWII experience that needs a major patch.

    Theatre of War has every piece that a great strategy game needs. It's not as fast as Company of Heroes of course, but it really can't be beat in the realism department. The only problem is that it really doesn't work a... Read Full Review

    Fun game sort of, but the infantry drive me insane!

    i don't know why but the infantry seem to just run up to a German machine gunner to say hello if you don't order them to stop, and the infantry will run up to them, try to shoot them at point blank and fail, and then get... Read Full Review
