It’s Back

November 21st, 2007 by Troy Goodfellow · No Comments · Matrix, Wargames

In their continuing effort to revamp, revisit and release every great old wargame from the past, Matrix Games has announced the arrival of Larry Bond’s Harpoon – Commander’s Edition. This isn’t the realistic and ugly Harpoon 2 and 3, it’s the classic Harpoon design with a few new bells and whistles.

Harpoon was the first game that really hooked me, much to the annoyance of my college friends. The computer only had a PC speaker, so the screeches of the alert sirens were pretty grating. In any case, I’m treating this as good news in spite of my reluctance to encourage revisiting the past at the expense of investing in the future.

Oh, and there are some new screens for Empires in Arms, too. There’s a game that I wasn’t sure would ever get done.
