The best War Game around Major!
The problem with writing this review is that there are not enough stars! The game is as far beyond "Excellent" as that is beyond good. What makes it even better is the huge range of third party mods available which really extend its range. Unless you cheat, (Don't do this online you'll get kicked off) the AI will give you all the challenge you can take while you learn to be a general.
Having converted most of my old video collection to DVD I was thrilled to find this film gem in digital format. If you watch this in widescreen format, it really does the battle scene great justice; coupled with surround sound, you'll be gripped by the amazing cinematography. I would recommend the director's cut that includes scenes about the relationship between the lead character and his estranged wife and helps you to understand the motivation behind his decision. The run time is 183 minutes for the directors cut and 120 minutes for the cinema version. I was, however, disappointed by the lack of extras, which any fan of this classic would expect to be included. There's only a 20-minute interview with the director and other shot "making-of" vignettes.
