Ultimately, the game offers a lot, but just feels cold. All of the controls and options are there, but you're left with hours of uninteresting menu navigation. You should feel more of a sense of accomplishment for achieveing success from your tactical decisions, but it just isn't there with FOM. For die-hard sim fans, there is some value here, but you'll have to work hard for it. For casual gamers that get bored easily, this one is not for you.
