I finally got to try War in the East, the monster Eastern Front from 2by3 Games and published by Matrix Games.
War in the East is massive in both scale and depth. It feels like you could be playing this game for a whole year and yet find something new. There are some game design features that I am liking, like a not so restrictive fog of war that is adequate for an operational level war game, the detailed but easy to manage logistics and the flexibility to reorganize/shuffle formations.
Not so enthused about the general feel of working in the map (it feels a bit clunky) and the on-map highlighting of formations above the corps level.
