Complexity: this game has it in spades. The learning curve is brutal, and the included tutorials are more or less useless. I'd recommend you read the comprehensive Wargame Guide here on Steam, sections Combined Arms through Types of Move Orders at minimum, but I know you'll do the same thing I did. Namely, get immediately annhilated fighting the Easy AI.
Anyway, after a few disastrous adventures on the Highway to Oslo map, one comes to realize this game has more than meets the eye. And what meets the eye is impressive in itself: sprawling maps teeming with bridges, towns, ports, highways, rivers, hills, forests, farms, all of which you can examine from ground level and, after a seamless mouse-wheel swoop, from a few thousand feet up. I can watch my jet fighters ducking through AA tracer fire again and again (in slow motion, no less, courtesy of the game saving a replay of every single match).
I like this game. I look forward to some online matches, and buying Red Dragon next time it's on sale.
