  • Excerpt: The Close Combat series is the granddaddy of historical real-time tactical games. Since 1996, seventeen games, including remakes, bundles and military training versions, have been spawned from the basic engine. Most products cover World War II but a few deal with modern warfare. The series has gone through three commercial publishers and four commercial developers.

From war-room strategy to gritty trench combat, battlefields come to life as you command Allied or Axis powers. It's a desperate fight--bridge after bridge--where every second counts.

Terror Strike: Close Quarters Combat Review

GameSpot
18 July 2007
  • Excerpt: Speed kills. Consider this the big message of Terror Strike: Close Quarters Combat, a year-old tactical shooter (it hit Europe in early 2006 under the name of The Regiment) from Kuju Entertainment that revs up the terrorist-killing meme of Rainbow Six so much that it feels like a lethal biathlon.
  • Pros: Ring of authenticity in the mission design and overall challenge, Authentic battle sound effects and voice samples
  • Cons: Half-witted squad members, Absolutely unforgiving difficulty, especially on simulation mode, Unlocking missions requires incredibly high success ratings

  • Summary: If you are a fan of this brand of war gaming (Command and Conquer comes to mind), World War II, or just want to be like Tom Hanks, Close Combat: Invasion Normandy is a smart choice. From storming the beaches to securing the inland, each battle is intense, and every one of your actions is important to winning the battle and, eventually, the war. So, I'll see you on the beach!
