        You ask a complicated question - and the answer will vary WIDELY on your expectations. The Operational Art of War III (Matrix Games) is an excellent choice if you enjoy "hex based" wargames. It is not quite as good at modern war stuff though - and it is a bit high on the complication scale if you are totally new to wargames.

        Are you just looking to throw money at something, or do you have more specific interests? We can help you narrow it down, but we need more to work with.

          I would avoid complicated wargames like TOAW III if I were you, what do you like best? turn-based or real-time?

            What is better? TOAW? or WinSPMBT?(already have it.) i like Steel Panthers, starting to get th hang of it. Is TOAW better? Any good alternatives?

            I think id prefer a tun based game but either would do.

              I'd go with 'Airborne Assault: Highway to the Reich'. It's 'real-time' rather than turn-based and features one of the best AI programmes you can find. The only down-side is that it's pretty time-consuming to play online although I enjoyed the experience very much.

              The latest game from the developer is 'Conquest of the Aegean' which is a fine game but the subject matter may not appeal in the same way that HTTR will do.

              http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/default.asp is a good place to read up on these games.

                My response will be ENTIRELY biased, because I am going to just ignore anything I don't like

                For Shooters BF42 wins. No other game in it's type hit the mark more than it.

                For Real Time Strategy, Rise of Nations. The rest I won't play if paid to.

                Squad Tactical Steel Panthers World at War through a Mega Campaign. Many versions of Steel Panthers exist, but only the Mega Campaigns are truely awesome.

                Tactical goes to Highway to the Reich series. Nothing comes closer to be awesome use of proper chain of command.

                Operational = The Operational Art of War3. No other game gives you more games in a box.

                Grand Strategy Gary Grigsby's World at War A World Divided. Gives the whole globe.

                Board game Advanced Squad Leader. It has no competition at all.

                Uniqueness vote. Up Front. Sadly not on sale as we speak. Plays like Poker, can be taught to a wife. Can play it nearly anywhere.

                Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
                I didn't for a long time either.

                  Hoi 2

                  Hearts of iron 2 is one of my favorite games of all time. Im trying to play as the Germans and it is really tough.
