So what do you think?

If you're looking for a quick or introductory game of Axis & Allies this is the one. It also has a very special collection of never before seen plastic units.
Just to mention a few: German Tiger tank, Russian IS2 tank, US P40 Warhawk, German FW-190 Folkwolf, Japanese Kongo class battleship and the HMS Hood, and oh yeah... the German He-111 Heinkel bomber.

The new sculpts will prove a big selling point, I am sure.

It is pretty much the only reason I will buy a few copies as I don't suppose I will want to play on a small board ever again...

Dude its not out yet. Look toward Late July.

The game is fine but i wish they redid the map retro Milton Bradley style..

I guess it's an answer to all us folks who didn't like the "iconic" unit choices.

It will probably be the tournament standard game for all rounds till semi final and final, which should be global 40. Perhaps the goal was to make it a family game again rather than frumpy pizza/beer types looking for a good time with Adolf.
We really need an Axis and Allies World War one game so i can play that on August 1st, 2014.

No typically the date was changed. WOTC does this all the time.

Love the late 1941 setup.

Great feel to the game to set it just before Pearl Harbor.

In classic and revised, it seemed like Japan was already at in full stride, and was moving on to ahistorical attacks on its first turn (ie a powerhouse out of the gate)

Now Japan has to build up for a turn or two, then balance out.

I really like it. 1941 is a good start point for a WWII game.
