there was an awesome westwood idea when they made dune 2000, which was to make a command and conquere game (also used in tiberium sun) they gave a few options of where to attack what territory. which is more like the game risk and in general a good idea to do. often though the enemies rarely counter strike or weakly counterstrike.

it would be neat to have a game command and conquere like for world war 2, have your factories in 1 spot or a few, instead of on site unit building which is rediculous, have it more realistic in that sense, train your units, and allow them to have skills, which is often forgotten by many games. it wouldnt be that hard to give each squadron and division a skill rating, when there beat up repair and resupply it. would it really be on the scale of world war 2? no, but it would be fun to control squadrons of fighters, take them from multiple locations on the world map and attack the same province, mean while the enemy is re routing his reserves to the battle. and it would be good because the outcome of 1 battle will have a major impact, it wont be like in other command and conquere games where each battle is like a fresh beggining, and the most you can lose is a territory then regroup as if nothing happened.

it would be intresting for them squadrons to return to base after the battle, if they arent obliterated or damaged they could fly more missions for you. then you could time attacks to these bomb and fighter raids.

what would be intresting is lets say you just repelled an enemy attack, and there regrouping, you could then attack or send bombing raids anywhere of your choosing.

probably be more geared to people with brains (strategy players) but others could enjoy it to?

i checked that out, that game is neglecting air power? one of the big draw backs to first person shooters, in reality one side may call in fire support from artillary or air strikes and the block the enemy was on is leveled...

Why do you say that strategy game players are the ones with brains, btw?

its the most mentally demanding game type by far obviously, a good strategy game is 3 dimensional chess even up to 5 levels... under water, above water, on ground, in the air and in orbit. requiring weapon systems to neutralising them planes of fighting at the same time, while attempting to exploit holes in the enemy defenses... often start out heavily out numbered with an army in dissaray.

rpg's in most cases have a 1 way path you have to follow, fitsr person shooters just mean you have to shoot stuff, often walk throughs.

You want a WW2 RTS? Or is the risk-board metagame important to you?

a hybrid of risk and command and conquere with ww2 as the game theme. so rather then have the game decide if you win or lose by dice it becomes a battle on the map.

for example when you dominate an enemy with air power in a campaign mission, why not bring some of them units to your forward operating base? force you to gaurd territory and update other areas on the map. as you know in games like this the tech level rises, so if you have hurricane fighters gaurding your capital and havent gone to that map in hours/possibly days depending on the mode. them hurricanes may be going against me 262's which would be a massacure.

it would create more enjoyable play from the saspect if your an average player you can play defense for an hour or so, build up bomber squadrons, and tanks so when you do go into battle you can bring in as many units as you want to make the battle easier for you, as long as you have them units. there likely is a civilization game like this out there? likely not as much detail and things of that nature though?

Any of the Sid Meier turn-based games probably have the complexity you're looking for.
