All in all I had a very good time years ago... Land battles are so and so, but air and naval battles are great!
Best WWII global game (5th edition)!

I have to give this game a 10, although I have the slight caveat of "Given that I have enough time to play, I will always want to play..."

This game is the ultimate WWII grand strategy game.

For me, World in Flames is the game agaisnt which others must be compared.

I think the reason I like it so much is that it is a great strategy game for WWII and it includes a lot of detail; but I don't think it ever gets overwhelming. The reason it doesn't is because each 'part' is a regular sized game; the War in the USSR is a 150 piece game; the Battle of the Atlantic, the strategic bombing campaign, the War in the Pacific - each is manageable game.

The strategic element brings these all together. World in Flames can be played in many different ways, with lots of ability to expand and many optional rules. There are lots of scenarios to try.

It handles all of its aspects well and does integrate all of the 'games within the game'.

Finally, there is a fairly large and active community which is available for help, rules questions, strategy hints, etc.

This is the best game I've ever played (except for Junta). There's always a game going in my basement.

Excellent strategic level simulation of World War II. Beautiful maps and counters. Expansions allow you to add the "chrome" you like at your own pace. You must be able to set it up and leave it between gaming sessions. It will take a massive amount of time to play, but it is very fun and worth the effort. Plays best with a group of at least 4 people, preferably 5.

My favourite strategic WWII game... the 5th edition vanilla works better for me.

I have the WiF Final edition (punched excellent condition) and Asia/Afrika Aflame (mint).

How I wish I could find the room to play this. I' first saw it being played as 4th edition or thereabouts, back in my University days. Although I was playing a different game at the time, I would go over and watch this game being played whenever I got the chance. I now own 5th edition and Finakl edition with a few of the expansions thrown in. Problem is I don't currently have the space or time to play. And VASSAL isn't really an answer due to still not having the time. Maybe one day.....

One of those "universe" game, meaning that it's the kind of a game you can play without having to play another one. It's what I did for numerous years.
And a rich and deep universe it is. Graphically beautiful, hard to master, Wif is an excellent game. The multiple extensions changed the gampeplay but I still remember the thrilling when I purchased one...

Despite a few flaws in the naval system the 5th ed has stood the test of time. The final edition is an unplayable mess, but with some great ideas here and there. Immense fun and highly absorbing, it captures the interaction between land/air/naval units better than any other grand strategy WWII game. Don't be put off by whining eurogamers saying it's complicated - the mechanics are clean, elegant, and fast running. It takes a long time because it's WWII in all it's glory, but it's time well spent.

Great game. Good rules. Good game system. Lot's of strategic possiblities.
Not a very realistic simulation on the small scale (A game on this scale should not have artillery units), but on the strategic level it's IMHO the best complete WW2 game out there. (4 players recommended). Play it with "Days of Decision".

The best game of WWII I have ever encountered. Combines strategic planning ahead and production, world-wide strategy and local-theatre tactics in one. Lots of extra stuff and additional rules/units etc.
Does take a long time to play, and takes up significant amount of space, though. But a truly excellent game!

When inquiring about this game, the game store owner said that it is the best war game ever produced, with lots of counters. After learning the game, which is complicated, I agreed with the store owner. Not for the gamer that wants to finish a scenario at one sitting.

Obviously not for you if your idea of a long game is 3 hours! But I haven't played a better strategic level WW2 game, and I've been playing it on and off for nearly 20 years. I guess that makes it a 10.
