Editors' Review

+
The best games remain exciting years after they're released. That's definitely the case with the real-time strategy game Close Combat and its sequel, Close Combat II: A Bridge Too Far. In this installment, you command troops on the Allied or Axis side, attacking or defending strategic bridges. The game's most distinctive feature is the way it factors in the psychology of your troops: if your soldiers think an order is ridiculous or if their stress level exceeds a certain threshold, they won t obey. The two-dimensional graphics still look passable, and the sounds effects are impressively realistic, though their sample quality is low by today s standards. With all its small buttons and bars, the interface initially looks intimidating, but it's actually quite straightforward. If you have any trouble, you'll find an in-game tutorial and a bunch of help files in the Internet. WWII fans and strategy buffs will like this game a lot.

"The Best Top-Down, Tactical WWII Game Ever Made!"

December 04, 2007  |  By evergreen88

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

None of the other games in the series played as well as this one. CC2 just had "something" the others didn't. Be warned though, like most AI's this game doesn't provide the challenge you get from another human opponent, so do yourself a favor and find one. You'll soon understand why there is STILL a fervent following of this game--because it was that good!

Cons

Occasionally, the AI will go screwy. Tanks will get caught on buildings and such. However, it still doesn't take away from the awesome game play of this game.

"Best Squad Based Wargame Yet!"

June 08, 2004

 |  Version: Not Found

Summary

Great RTS wargame, realistic strategy, plenty of action. While people searching for state-of-the-art 3d graphics and instant action-filled gratification will probably not enjoy this, if you like realistic warfare and combat that requires real thinking and strategy under fire, while commanding many types of real WWII units/vehicles you'l enjoy this.
