Disclaimer... I am a WSR playtester/scenario designer so I am inclined to view this game favorably. I really love this game [will write a full review to provide more detail]... beautiful components, solid system derived from the WaW rules with changes to reflect WWII. Lots of fun to play... and I should know given how many times I have played most of the scenarios in the box.

Was a playtester for this, and have played all the scenarios at least once. Great game, and nice to see the actual production components vs playtest components.

not convinced that chit draw is the right system for a game with a small number of units, but NaW works pretty well overall. nice presentation, solid rules, and a quick playing game. take this game for what it is - it's not grognard heaven, it is swift, destructive and you have to enjoy riding the wild swings of luck. play aggressively, have a cohesive plan, and hope for the best. despite all your best efforts things still might not go your way. and so it goes.

Fantastic system, great scenarios, and a lot of tense, close scenarios. About what you want from a wargame.

Nations at War: White Star Rising

This has to be one of the finest war-game products I have ever purchased. The quality is out of this world. From the all color rules/scenario book to the color playing aids/charts, to the extra large counters and the fine hard board playing maps, not to mention the box, all excellent. It has all the counter types I wanted from a 1944-45 Western front game and a few surprise counters as well. I love the fact that I get my hands on a M26 Pershing Tank or a Comet Tank or a King Tiger II to talk of the big-boys in the games. The scenario mix is fantastic as well. One of the four map boards has a touch of ocean, all very cool. I can’t believe you can buy such a great product at this low price. If you guys haven’t purchased this one, you really need to, it’s a ten in my book. I’ll being buying more Nations At War games for sure and it looks like Desert Heat will be next. Maybe an Eastern Front after that and who knows, maybe a Pacific game as well, count me is for all of them with this excellent quality.

One of the best games you will ever purchase. I guess you can tell that I am recommending it!

First class contents, mounted maps, nice BIG counters, color rulebook, and laminated charts. A modernized Panzer Leader in a way, but with everything upgraded. I was one of the first ones to receive a copy it looks like, and JD and I liked the first impression we got of it. I've since played in on VASSAL, and using Skype it's like a face-to-face game. Glad to see Mark going with the flow on VASSAL, my opponent in upstate NY doesn't have the game, but now after playing he's buying a copy for his wargaming group!

Great game!
Components are very nice; Unit counter art is beautiful, some of the info marker colors (out of command, chaos) dont fit with the rest of the game. Boards are hard mounted, graphically simular to the ones in the World at War series. Game play is fast and fun. Rules are good - not in love with layout and organization but they are fairly clear and efective.
Looking forward to the Desert Heat Expansion.

My first wargame was Panzer Blitz, $8.75, and in a slipcover box. Later, I added another copy and two of Panzer Leader and one of Arab Israeli Wars. I still have them today. I have been waiting for a good platoon level game to replace these for years and have tried other systems at this level but for various reasons they have never quite done it for me. I think the Nations at War series will do it. WSR has fast and engaging play, well done scenarios, beautiful LARGE counters, very nice mapboards, and a set of well-written rules; these all combine to make this a winner. I know there are some minor production problems (mapboards cut very slightly off line along with a tendency to warp, still nicer than PB/PL/AIW) but I feel this is very insignificant compared to the excellent game play and pure beauty of the game. I believe Lock N Load has much potential with this series and I am looking forward to Desert Heat and then wishing for an East Front game followed by one on the Pacific.

WSR is a rising star for me. The system plays very well and models formation command nicely. The combat system is the fistful o' dice variety, so in some sense feels a bit like miniatures.
