This is probably the most simple of the Command and Colours based games and I think that it suffers because of that simplicity. Unlike the Napoleonic or Ancients version there are no command units, I fact you are limited in choice between infantry and tanks. Some missions have elite infantry but that's it. You have to buy one of the many many expansions to increase your unit choices.
It is simple enough for my 8 year old son to understand and to make valid choices from his command cards. The problem is that there isn't much excitement in the game play. The scenarios are objective based, capture this town or get a u it to this spot etc, but you can ignore the missions and still win by destroying enemy u it's which is far easier.
It is a really popular game, but the game mechanic behind this game has been put to far better use. Try Battlecry for a simple yet more interesting American Civil War version. Nicer models, better missions and far more to keep you interested.
