Wonderful strategy writeup for the early Allied game at the Quarter to Three site:

I have to admit I was surprised that they would take so long to get to a game with over 180 forum posts. But it turned out to be a nice review. Thanks, TouchArcade!

Yeah it's a common complaint amoung the more serious strategy gamers here that TA tends to ignore "hard core" strategy games for lack of a better term. Glad to see they actually gave BotB front page, it's much deserved.

Well I'm surprised they reviewed it at all, but I'm glad they did.
TA is a more generalist website, and BotB is pretty niche and absolutely not casual while being very accessible.
I'm glad they reviewed (and granted a well deserved top score) because I feel Battle of the Bulge is the PERFECT game to be introduced to the genre and be hopelessy addicted (because the game is simply stellar imho).
It's slick, an audio-visual joy, it's fast and 'easy' to get into, while being incredibly deep in the long run.
I'm playing it constantly since it came out and almost every other game I used to play feels a bit soul-less now.
I hope this review grants them a new flow of well deserved sells.

Besides that, El Alamein is now my top wanted game...can't wait to have my tanks jammed by the sand of the desert or my divisions immobilized and suffering for the lack of water

I think a lite version is sorely needed for any significant "introducing to the genre" to be made. I'm fully interested in trying this and paying full price should I find it appealing, but not really in spending ten bucks on something that's just as likely to put me to sleep in the first fifteen minutes as engage my interest. I may still change my mind and try it anyway of course, but I'm willing to bet most in a similar position won't.
