I'd rather play that game in co-op than playing so called tactical games in Arcade mode with (coughing loudly) hard core simers! (coughing again)
I like the idea of monitoring the battlefield through a drone or a satellite.
It is also interesting that the creator of that game is the creator of "Ruse" which was an unusual concept at the time with things like dummy battles, spies, monitoring and deciphering enemy radio traffic, radio silence, an "Intelligence" and "Counter Intel" dimensions built within the game...Ruse went a step further into a side of battle which is often overlooked.
Then Wargame: AL is a French take on the European cold war theatre of operation, war technology and technical details.
I also like the fact that a RTS can be played Solo, CooP, or force on force.
What I don't like is that public chat is used to entertain conversation totally foreign to the topic of the game, and the IQ level of those exchanges is as high as the room temperature.
However,it is overall an unusual game in a pleasing way!
