There are only very few games out there which actually deserve the over-used label 'epic'. Usually, games called 'epic' just go for broadness, i.e. they offer lots of stuff of the same kind. For example, such a game would have lots of levels, but all those levels require the same few activities and strategies.

Now you see the violence inherent in the system!

My friend and I used to play this a lot. We had the maps all stuck on the wall and would plan who to recruit. It was almost like a military operation.

Midwinter was undoubtedly ahead of its time and is one of the games of that era, like Sid Meier's Covert Action, that could really do with a modern remake.
