Great WW2 tactical game

I may not be the most hardcore strategist, but I like to play some more demanding games sometimes. Theatre of War 2 falls into this category, as it has a bit steep learning curve. Of course you can play it carelessly without much practice, but it won't get you far. But if you spend some time learning the game and practising, you will be rewarded by one of the most challenging strategy games. Actually it is more of a tactical game than a strategic one, due to the scale of battles presented, but let's not go into too much detail. You will be commanding your forces on unit level but with enough detail to give it almost a RPG feel. Your troops gain experience and improve. You have a choice of various arms - infantry, armor, artillery and more. It's not a good entry into strategy gaming, but if you have some experience under your belt, you should love this game.
