Players endeavor to wrap their minds around the myriad factors that shaped the outcome of World War II in this comprehensive turn-based strategy simulation by Gary Grigsby and 2by3 Games. Choosing one of five playable forces — Germany, Japan, the Soviet Union, the Western Allies, or China — players take full command of all military and industrial operations involved in their faction's war effort. The game features 15 basic combat units, each defined by as many as 14 individual attributes which may be improved or altered through the course of play. Production facilities and supply routes are also accurately accounted for, though players can choose to automate the maintenance of these resources to focus on the turn-based combat itself. Gary Grigsby's World At War includes four separate scenarios, each starting at a different time and place but all playing through to the end of the conflict. A tutorial is provided to help ease players into the game, and up to five human competitors can wage war against one another through "play by e-mail" ("PBEM") support. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
