Review at Meristation.es
7.5/10 - "Espana 1936 is an exciting title that allows us to recreate the Spanish Civil War with a degree of depth never seen. It's the closest thing there is to be truly in front of an army, and represents a very interesting challenge for all fans of strategy. AGEOD already had shown in any of their previous offerings, but the current atmosphere in a conflict so close to us, is another reason to throw himself to this complex, but satisfying, military simulation. It may not be suitable for all players, but lovers of high strategy can rub his hands. A great work of historical research that offers, as a result, a vision three years playable key to the history of our country".
