Winter!: Prepare for holiday gaming!
My introduction to this great series :D
+ The game mechanics are simply awesome. Start off by expanding your influence and prepare for the first encounter. Rush to some good strategical position and outsmart your foes. And don't forget those CO's! They really add a general feel of "this is my army, see? I even customized it to match my personality".
+ Designing maps. Great fun altough rarely balanced xD
+ You play trough the campaign, facing (seemingly) impossible odds only to find out your enemy isn't the real enemy... prepare for Sturm! Awesome character and just fun to play with, despite him being broken. (seriously, use him on a map heavy with woods and watch your foes falter behind you.)
- I haven't got anything negative to say. I'd suggest getting this game and Days of Ruin/Dark Conflict and prepare for hours of fun xD
