Great game on the Russian Front. A step up from TRC as it adds more detail without a ton of extra rules. Components fantastic and the 9/16 counters are a must buy.

Good: Strategic/Operational - Eastern Front - Easy/Medium

Plus:
-Good design based on the Russian campaign but actually different in play.
-High quality components. Functional map & counters

Minus:
-Very steep price
-No scenario's!! This is actually a big let down.Now they come with an expension but I am sorry to see L2 is going this way. Honetly, for an 80 Euro I think the game should have least included some scenario's.
-Map & counters are functional but graphics are average (would have loved to see Bitter Woods style map)
-There is only one scenario and this really is an issue for me; you can only play Barbarossa.

Overall: good game but I am disappointed that there are no scenario's, which hampers the game tremendously in its replay value. Only now there is an expansion available and this upsets me as it should have been there in the first place for a game that cost 80+ Euro...

Ordered this game to replace the beautiful but unplayable Barbarossa: the Russo - German war. This is playable and a revamped version of the classic: The Russian Campaign. I guess I prefer the Russian Campaign.
Really a shame as this would have lifted it to the perfect Russian Front game of all time.

Another disappointment is the dominant presence of Turkey on the map but unfortunately it does not play a role whatsoever. Update: you can pay for the expansion of course.

Don't get me wrong this is a beautiful game but quite expensive for what you get and it feels like there are missed opportunities.

Good game but disappointed as there are no scenario's and I gladly stick to EastFront II

Sold it.

Solid game. Nearly a Russian Campaign clone but with extra chrome (generals, more detailed air etc) and, most importantly, fixed supply rules! The graphical presentation is good but not quite up to usual L2 standards. Lots of errata is made better by stickers that can be pasted over the offending rule/chart/map (yes there is erranta on it all). The standard game has 1/2" counters but you can request the updated, errata free, 9/16" ones. The graphics on the larger units are still generic Nato symbols and not the tank profiles of TRC.

Ultimately, this was simply too much like The Russian Campaign. Even the designer admits this. Traded.

Nice evolution of TRC, but not accurate enough as a simulation to satisfy me. Sold.

I really wanted to like this game, but incredibly poor development along with an endless stream of broken promises on the second (then third) edition rules caused me to look elsewhere for a good corps-level Russian front game.
