Ok, first I'll tell you that this game is a little hard to get used to and understand. You start at the Main Menu as you do in most games. You chose what battle/scenario you want to play, a few options like do you want air support and how much, and if you want to do it by email (witch I'm not sure if you can do now) then press begin battle. I was a bit confused when I started my first game and I found it a bit hard to figure it out so I'll help you. There is a row of options at the top of the screen. It includes things such as air strike, HQ and maps; these don't play a big part in the game. You'll also have units scattered around the game map (Infantry, tanks, big guns ext.) waiting for your orders.
To move the units, click and hold down then drag to were you want them to go. To attack an enemy unit, click and drag onto the enemy. You can also perform air strikes and shoot from ships.
Winning a scenario was a real let down. There are no fireworks, no celebrations and no patriotic "You have Won!" messages. All that happens is that you get returned back to game map. There is a red and white bar at the bottom of the screen that shows who has supremacy. At the end of the scenario, if your color prevails, that means that you have Won!
Replayability is also poor since all you do is re-fight battles (and they are always the same!). There are even no points or high scores to beat. The only positive thing about this game were the graphics witch I found to be quite eye pleasing. Overall, with the game failing to motivate me to continue playing and having clumsy controls and a steep learning curve, I can give this game a 3 at best.
