I don't know about the game but the bizarre Stuart tank on the cover does not bode well. It seems to be a US variant with a 76mm gun stuck onto it by photoshop. Couldn't they have used any of the zillions of Desert War photos available ?

This is not a company & series to bother about covers. I challenge you to find ONE good one among PG.

Not exactly, it is really a... er... um..., okay that is a reaaaaaaally long barrel on a really light tank... um... it doesn't look like any Honey I've ever seen...gulp I don't know what '41-'42 North Africa tanks have such a monster sticking out of it!

It looks like they 'borrowed' this M5 picture, reversed it and photoshopped it... it's too bad, if they grabbed an older M3 and didn't put it on Viagra (tm) it would have been a bit more pleasing...

I must admit, the cover is odd on this one. The last six boxed games since have been pretty good. But I hardly ever see the cover, since on the shelf it's just the side view and whats inside this box, rocks!
