Description of Patton Strikes Back: The Battle of the Bulge
Although Patton Strikes Back is unarguably the worst game of Crawford's career, it was a novel (and noble) attempt to attract non-wargamers to the fray through simplified combat, colorful animations, and excellent help functions and database. A commendable effort that would not be taken up again until SSI's phenomenal Panzer General.

I thought this was a great game. What was not obvious about it was it had integrated facts about the Battle of the Bulge. If you strayed too far from the actual events as they unfolded, you would lose. The Allied victory was that close.

my favorite war strategy game of all time. great macro level play. Would have benefited from the ability to format one own units.

Best game I played back in the early 90s. Wish it would be released as an educational app for history classes.

Loved this game despite all the criticism it received from the grognard-elitists.

My husband LOVED this game, we had it on an old Mac years ago.
Can we still buy it to run on Windows 7? It would make him very happy...

This game got low marks because Crawford renigged on his promise to give Patton options he didn't have thanks to "Sir" Bernard Law Montgomery - enough food, fuel and ammo to say "fuck it" to the V-2 sites that Churchill wanted shut down, and go straight for Berlin before the Russians got there, and then be able to continue the game by kicking the Red Army all the way back to Moscow with the help of repatriated German troops. One of the few games where you could get banned from the pirate BBS' by uploading it because it was such utter crap.
