Which of the following games about Stalingrad will give me the best combination of immersion, feel, and theme regarding that particular battle?

Stalingrad: Verdun on the Volga
Storm over Stalingrad
Stalingrad Inferno on the Volga
Turning Point: Stalingrad

It does nothing new. Compared to the mentioned games, I have played each one, overall verdun just does everything better.

Will and Luke have it exactly right. I've played all four (Inferno only once, but played the hell out of Turning Point in its day) and it's Verdun hands down.

My only big disappointment with it: no Vassal Module sadly. C'est la guerre.

I had spoken with the publisher recently and he said he was looking into it.

I think you made a good choice. Even though I still have a soft spot in my heart for TP:S, I think S:VoV is the better game because of its Attrition model versus the Fresh/Spent model of TP:S. I also like the concept of the Logistical Pause which can be frustrating to German plans. I hope you enjoy the game. Cheers and Merry Christmas.

No problem with a Vassal module on my end. The game has been out for a year now and it was reported the print run has largely sold out.
