Definitely stoked about this. The price is a bit high for my taste though. Need more intel!

Can't wait to pick this bad boy up tonight! Slitherine delivers another top notch strategy game, well worth the price of admission.

Insta-buy for me. I've played a bit. Combat mechanics are a lot like Panzer Corps, but there are more elements you have to deal with, like industrial production. It is pricey compared to a lot of other iOS games, but good strategy games are worth it for me.

Had been waiting for this one. I played 7 straight hours in my first game, and still only reached turn 15 (out of a possible 118), which was January 1915. It's going to be a long war, there's some serious gaming time here, and it's wonderful.

Couple of very minor rough edges to the port, but overall plays really well on original iPad mini. There's nothing else like this on iPad and it is well worth the price, which as usual is half the cost of the PC version.

The game complements both Panzer Corps and Battle Academy very well. Battle Academy is all about individual tanks and platoons in small battles, Panzer Corps is about army sized enounters, and (different war aside) C:TGW zooms out to cover war from the highest level and the need to allocate research and production becomes as important, if not more so, then just pushing units around the map. Knowing when to push, when to resupply, what to build.

Brilliant game so far, just brilliant.

BA II is great, no question ... I play the Beta. Nevertheless is this a complete different game. The gameplay also as the setup WW II vs. WW I ...

Also I like at BA II that it now has a skirmish mode. But I think it will take at least a year from now that we will see BA II on our iPads ....

There's always been a lack of WWI strategy games IMO, and this one looks like a real beast. And since it's Slitherine you just know it's worth the asking price.

WOW!! What a great day! This so reminds me of Hearts Of Iron from Paradox Games, set in a different war of course. Goodbye family, goodbye world. Hello Commander!
I am reading Dreadnought by Robert K. Massie, which sets the scene for the Great War, one of the best I have read to date. This game arrived at just the right time for me.
