Tons of units at your control.
Easy to access cinematic camera to watch the action unfold.
Little needless micromanagement.
Interface is good & easy to get used too.
Two campaigns offer plenty of variety.
Utterly generic feel with braindead AI.

Muddle color palette makes tracking troops a challenge.
Gameplay is too simplistic.
