I've been looking at this game on Steam, and before that, keeping an eye on some of the preview material, I keep going back and forth on buying it, does anyone have any ideas as to what it's like to play? any good?

IMO, it's a click-fest. I find the UI very hard to use when you have many units. It is very difficult to select the one you want. At this time, there are many of us who simply cannot play the game due to freeze-up bugs. To me, the game is very simplistic.

Stockholm, JUNE 8th 2012 - With your mastery of the seas assured and your control over the world's most powerful weapons amply demonstrated, it is time for the student to now become the teacher - time to design new challenges and new scenarios as others prepare for war at the top of the world.

I hope this gives NW a boost. The lack of an editor was one of the weakest links in this game.
I also hope we see some Pacific scenarios one day, even in an expansion. I would be much more interested in a hypothetical Sino - Et Alia war scenario than the game's stock Cold War Redux campaign.
"We cannot seem to replicate it on our end and are trying to set up systems that will reproduce the problem."
They've been saying that for months and the problem is reported by folks using XP, Vista, and Win7. So, it isn't specific to one system. They may be sincere in their efforts, but that's irrelevant if they cannot solve the problem.
A new video for "NWAC Bug avoidance techniques" has been added the YouTubeHarpoon for Dummies channel to help players navigate the complexities of the game and to deliver the best possible playing experience.
