GMR Taken by Silent Storm

The boys at GMR have posted a three paragraph review of Silent Storm giving it heaps of praise and a score of 9/10. Here's the review in its entirety:
If you've ever played Jagged Alliance 2 and thought "Hot diggity, if this took place in World War II and was in 3D, it would rock," here is your dream game. For the rest of you who didn't understand that reference, just know that Silent Storm is a 3D turn-based tactical game taking place during World War II.

The core game involves guiding six soldiers (either Axis or Allied) through missions ranging from simple "defeat the enemy" to complicated affairs like "assassinate the general" or "protect the scientist." Since the game is in totally destructible 3D, you can blow up walls, shoot through floorboards, or hurl guys through windows.

Fact is, despite some minor points (long enemy turns, mediocre voice acting, semiwonky camera), this is simply the best turn-based game on PC right now. Whether you're old school or new school, it's not to be missed.

It's also interesting to note that review mentions that the game is better than UFO: Aftermath and not as good as Jagged Alliance 2. I am inclined to agree.
