This video covers a non-historical scenario that I am playing around with in the Scenario Maker application that ship with the free engine module. There is also an Establishment Editor and a Map Maker application available that allows you to create your own content. I have not designed a scenario is a number of years, however the new game is largely built upon the successes of the first game so it took very little time to get back into it.
The base module to the game is available for free on Steam.
Today I learned that Command Operations has finally landed on Steam. This is what I feel to be a logical conclusion of a journey that has taken this developer through several publishers and business models. The series began as Red Devils of Arnhem, and then progressed as Highway to the Reich, Conquest of the Aegean, Command Operations 1, and now the most recent iteration of the game engine, CO2. Along the way the theater shifted from Western Europe to Greece, and then back to the western front again through both CO1 and CO2.
This is my video review of a tactical turn-based action orientated game that features some light RPG elements. There is a bug with the game (or with its Steam interface) that causes a black screen upon exit to the desktop which requires a hard restart of the computer. I am currently playing the game in a reduced windowed resolution to get around this. While this is not an optimal solution, the game more than makes up for the technical shortcoming with some solid tactical gameplay.
This is a short flight from KSGJ North Florida Regional Airport in St. Augustine, FL to KJAX Jacksonville International Airport in Jacksonville, FL. In terms of the game this route hits all of the key points from takeoff, approach, and landing is a very short time frame (approximately 20 minutes).
