Default Wargame: European Escalation Thread

Hey everyone, there is a game that was released a few weeks ago called Wargame European Escalation. Its an RTS, with pretty sweet graphics and over 300 units. Its takes place during the Cold War, with the forces of NATO squaring off against the Warsaw Pact forces (Soviet / Communist Eastern Europe). So far though its been pretty under the radar for such a high quality game.

I'm currently downloading it off steam at the moment, and I was just wondering has any one else got it and if so what do you think?

Also, if there are enough of us we could get a list of Heresy members with the game, and get a clan/team going and perhaps play some online MP 2v2 or 3v3?

Anyway here are some youtube vids for it:

This game was on sale on Steam recently, and I'm just curious if anyone on Heresy plays it?

I thinks its simply awesome, and would highly recommend it to RTS fans.

I play it and think it's a fantastic game.

I love that it's entirely based around unit tactics, there's no resource gathering or base building, victory is purely dependent on how well you use your units. The 'deck' feature is interesting, with so many units to choose from you really have to think carefully about what you want to include.

I also think it has some of the best explosion fx for any rts i've seen. You'll know what i mean when you see some artillery or rockets come down.

I'd be keen for some team games, my handle is Colonel Killanger (for some reason i thought that was the name of a character from Dr Strangelove and couldn't resist the Cold War reference. It is of course, no character's name and i have no idea where my subconscious got it from).
