I thought there was a Blitzkrieg thread somewhere in here...oh well.
I believe the original is definitely the best and most fun of this RTS series. The game is great to play online as well. People are always creating custom maps. The possibilities with the map editor are endless, although I've never delved into using it myself.
One thing I always liked about the game is that there is a HUGE variety of American, British, German, and Soviet units available. It really makes for some interesting gameplay. Building defensive positions while utilizing this selection (Tanks, armored cars, Anti tank guns, self propelled AT guns, infantry trenches,giant minefields) is particluarly enjoyable. The artillery in this game is also an essential element. It plays a huge role, especially in the campaign.
Overall, I highly recommend it to any WW2 game enthusiast!

Aww man, I LOVE THIS GAME. Your right the orginal was the best, but the others were still fun. Ill tell you the thing that made this game the best was that the tanks knew how to back up. I always would talk to my friends about how that made the game so great because the tanks driving ai made it easy to move the units. It would be a lot of fun if we could play one night too.
I do agree that this is probably one of the best games out there. And most things can blow up ;D so nobody is safe if you have artillery. It is at the top of my list for favorite games of all time next to Axis and Allies (the board game).
Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Cpl. Hicks: I haven't been here in years, but I'm glad to see this forum is still kicking! So much great info on here.

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
