The military element of the game is played through battalion-sized units represented on the game map, that can be controlled and given orders using the mouse individually or through groupings. Optionally players may leave unit initiative turned on, which will allow the AI to control military units for the player.
The player may also use Cabinet Ministers to assist with the operation of their regions, through the use of a Minister-priorities system and an in-game alerts system.
The main focus of the game are on four campaigns, each taking place from the perspective of either Germany, Japan, Italy, and the United Kingdom. Scenarios depict key moments in the war, such as Operation Barbarossa, Case Blue, and even alternate history scenarios such as Operation Sea Lion.
Multiplayer is available in LAN or Internet play for up to 16 players.
