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. :)

Make a different war

I’ve have played all four of the WW2 games and have liked em all 1941 Frozen Front being my favorite. I would like to see you guys expand you settings, maybe 1940 France Versus Germany or 1968 US VS North Vietnam ya know or even like 1991 US versus Iraq
