Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

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.
