EG:Battle of the Bulge is, first and foremost, a hugely enjoyable strategy game, and if you've no interest in the history I'm sure it's possible to appreciate it as just that. But the way in which it frames its source absolutely enraptured me, reawakening a long-dormant interest and sparking a search for countless other takes on the battle and its wider context - many of which, it has to be said, didn't come close. To say that Battle of the Bulge gives you a greater understanding of the Second World War and its human cost would in the strictest sense be untrue. But it encourages you in that direction and shines enough light to guide an inquisitive mind further. A fantastic game and a fitting tribute, Battle of the Bulge is unique.
