Well, what can I say… I’ve been drooling after CMANO since the creators (WarfareSims) ran a competition to name it!
The game, actually a proper War Gaming Simulator with (W,G, and capital S), is immense, deep, somewhat hard on the eyes but a definitive experience.
It is pricey at over 70€ on any normal day, but to be fair, it’s totally, totally worth it.
Now… knowing myself, my fear of commitment and my many many interests I couldn’t bear myself to buy CMANO as it is (despite being totally WORTH IT) and that’s when WarfareSims competence kicks in:
they release every few month a stand alone expansion that achieve two main goals.
1- defines smaller (but still zealously detailed) scenarios, focusing on a specific experience (plus some free candy in the shape of What-If scenarios)
2- allow users with a history of non-commitment (me) to have proper fun with CMANO powerful engine at a reduced price tag.
What’s not to love?!
The best part of all of this is the complete tutorials!
Just started the first one.
(Learning how to select, choose, and command a single aircraft: the granularity and control of this game is nothing short of breathtaking!)
Let’s see if I manage to squeeze a couple more before going to bed.
