Hey guys, just wanted to introduce some of you guys too this very, underated and underpublicized game. Its actaully the best RTS i have played in a while (especially if you like a realisitic underpin to your gaming). Most of the people who have played it say its better than Generals.

Heres a few reviews and pics

A video review from gamespot and giving it a 8.5 rating.

The new expansion looks set to break new records as far as RTS is concerned, realtime naval combat.

Anyway I'm looking to boost the ranks of players online because due to the economic problems of Atari this game was never publicised as much as it was meant to, which means the online gaming has died considerably, or more to the point never took off!

Does anyone else here play the game? Id like to try out a game or two against a human player, the AI is pretty clever at finding weakspots, but the difficulty levels mean it doesnt get used very well. Either insanely stupid enemies or a very clever enemy which gets massive build time and money bonuses thus swamping you!

Edit, fixed the broken linkys!
