Unity of Command 2
Top Critic Average
Wargames don't see a lot of innovation, but Unity of Command 2 builds new things out of familiar parts.
Unity of Command 2 maintains a strong supply of deep, compelling wargame strategy once you break through its wall of jargon.
Unity of Command II shows that even in a genre as tried-and-tested as this, where so much has remained the same for so long, that there’s room for change that not only interesting, but exciting.
Unity of Command II makes for one of the most tactically engaging and challenging strategy games ever, enhancing an already excellent original with new features such as special attacks, a headquarters system which adds a levelling up system - working with the myriad of side objectives - and a very different type of war found on the western front to the east. It has quite the learning curve and may seem as impenetrable as the Maginot Line, but with a little time you'll come to love exactly how it works.
Like the prequel, also Unity of Command II is a great example of what a modern wargame must be.

Unity of Command 2 is an excellent evolution of the series that retains, improves, and builds upon the already high quality of its predecessor.
It should come as no surprise that Unity of Command II surpasses the original in every way. Its one-screen UI is still the one to beat, and reflects the original in all the right ways. There’s a lot new to the game, and it offers so much depth where there’s so much to talk about. I adore the strict turn-based time limit, as it gets you to think in a different way. Unity of Command II is wargaming at its finest.
