Nice, But...

Honestly let us just say that first of all, this game is good, it is strategic and cool. I also like how some levels, you have to defend an assault wave or get a ton of troops to start out. Take for example, The Strong Winds, the first level, you have to defend in the front lines and then defend the back lines right? It’s cool and then the second level you lost troops and have to find the scattered troops to make an army and for me it was easy losing only about 2 to 7 troops and spending only 2000 gold and winning back 1000 extra and then the third level you have most of the army you formed in the second level. But there is a flaw. 3 to be exact. Ok first, I wanna say that there should be a multiplayer mode to fight anyone else who plays it online. Secondly, please please add new levels, I mean out of the 4 WW2 games, this is the best but has the least amount of levels. Third and last you could and should make the Medium bomber plane 3 shot by any anti aircraft from ground since the stats say that its defense is 5 out of 5 stars. That is all I have to say and this is a good game overall. :)

I love the game but have suggestions for more games

It would be neat if some more of WW2 was covered by these games, and I would like to share ideas, for example, perhaps there could be a 1940 Blitzkreig game with Germany, France, Poland, Britain and the Netherlands/Belgium, not sure how multiple factions could be added but I bet you guys have the skills to do it, oh also what if in the 1940 game there was an alternate reality campaign (and hopefully some pass and play scenarios cause I love those) where Operation Sealion actually works and Britain has to fight against Germany in London and various other places. And my second suggestion is a game about the Allied invasion of Berlin in 1945, I think it would be neat to see Russia, America, Britain and various other Allied Nations like France and Canada in one game, and have Germany basically doing a last stand kind of thing.

Good game but

I have been playing this game and the other four for a long time I love all of them but their getting old and less fun so I am writing this review to say that you guy need need! To make a new game I would recommend 1940 or 1945 game 1940 you can do the fall of France and Dunkirk that would be a amazing game for 1945 you can do the Germans last stand battle of Berlin and you have to defend to the last man that would be fun I hope hand games see this review and takes this advice please make a new game !!!
