The Most Comprehensive World War II Games that depict both Europe and Pacific both in the same game.

How do these games compare/contrast to each other?

If you want to play the whole of WWII in one game which would it be and why (or which wouldn't it be and why not)?

Feel free to add in any other comprehensive WWII games (both Europe and Pacific not just one theatre of operations)...

Here is another. A SPI game from the 70's. I owned it but never played it. Sold it a few years ago.

Slightly more obscure title. Seems like it's supposed to fill the same niche as Axis and Allies, only better.
