As much as I can imagine the odd mega-scale wargame, I very like a platoon-scale one as well. A game where you're in charge of sixty troopers, a half-dozen vehicles, and a piece of battlefield very little larger than a suburban area.
The Troop is simply such a wargame, one set in World War 2 and zeroed in on the British and Canadian powers battling across Normandy from the early long periods of D-Day. That immediately makes it stand out, as not nearly such countless games center around the Brits and Canadians as the US powers. What else makes it stand out? Dissimilar to a ton of other wargames, it appears to really get that this is a game, not a simulation. Realism, however a worry, takes a back seat to enjoyable gameplay.
From what I've seen up to this point, the AI understands and plays by the same guidelines as the player. It'll stay out of your view, pick angles that don't allow you to fire back adequately, and assuming it can't see your troops it'll act like they're not there. This is a game, with rules, and the AI is playing to win. I like that.
The Troop also has a pleasant narrating arrogance, and provides its units with a touch of character. It's something helped by its totally fictional battles and missions.
You can track down The Troop in early access on Steam. Designers Giant Flame expect to save it in early access for about a year, aiming for a full release in something like December 2022 or January 2023.
