Summary: Same engine of CC Caen , not yet the 3D CC we waiting for (The Bloody First ... HYPE), BUT this CC, like all the other, it's awesome to play!.

Summary: Close Combat: Gateway to Caen is basically an expansion pack that is asking for stand alone game prices. If you have played Close Combat games before, the interface and concept is exactly the same and has not changed much since the release of CC:Invasion of Normandy.
Summary: Gateway to Caen is the 7th installment of Close Combat Series, and is also the last close combat game using a 2D engine: the next Close Combat game, "The Big Red One" will be the first CC with a 3D engine.
Summary: It's a pretty "meh" game. No real improvements to speak of over Normandy. AI is still absolutely terrible. Explosions look slightly better that's about it. It's the same game as over a decade ago.
Summary: This game I played for days, months even for a hole year (1997-1998). It is an amazing game. Before it came out in Croatia, I got the demo and I played it over and over again. Waiting for the postman to bring it to me. How I was happy on that day. It is a masterpiece. No doubt about it.
Summary: Most realistic tactical-level war real-time simulation by far, Close Combat is one of those underrated gems that few people know. "CC5 Invasion: Normandy" is probably one the best games in the series, which was remade in 2012 with an extended campaign as "CC: The Longest Day".
