High Command: Europe 1939-'45
DOS - 1992
Description of High Command: Europe 1939-'45
As the title suggests, High Command puts you in command of the Allies or Axis during the most crucial points of World War 2. In contrast to Harpoon's micro scale, this game is decidedly a strategic-level wargame a la Gary Grigsby's games: control the Allies or Axis air, land, and sea forces in Europe.
Well-researched realism and scenarios are bogged down beneath spotty AI, cumbersome interface, and questionable supply logistics. It's fun if you enjoy realistic wargames, though.

I loved playing this game when I was young. Finally found a way to play it on modern PC's...and I am playing (and loving) it again. Has anyone ever found the scenario editor that can be used with the "User" option under Scenarios?

I've played this game for many years now. It's one of my favorite. Yes, it has an AI that "cheats" but it only lends to add to the challenge. Only real problem I have with it is all of the intense mouse use that tires my hand out.

This is a detailed strategical WWII sim very much ahead of its time. Its got some bugs but never mind this because there is still endless possibilities in this game. Think Strategic command, resources, politics, reserarch, naval, land and air units, historic events. Also stacking and combining of units is possible. Develop the atomic bomb etc... Even PBEM is possible. Very enjoyable game indeed!
