Summary: this game is a real gem for tactical combat gamers it needs concurrent management of attacks and has long life playability it contains two mod we go and real time I'm playing we go mod so I'm evaluating only it
Summary: Another solid 2nd gen Combat Mission title. If you enjoy the series and have any interest in the theater then it's pretty much a must buy. Same as with CMBN I still believe the series could use a serious graphics engine upgrade but that aside it's still a great game and there is nothing else really like it out there.
Summary: This is really quite a good game and the ai is much better than they say especially on defense and if you use and all infantry attack. This series was made with 12-13 year old wargamers in mind and i think it will certainly give them a challenge even on offense but for wise old wargamers who have played for years it's just another wargame with great graphics.
Summary: With the Gustav Line expansion, it is obviously Battlefront getting themselves geared up for an Eastern Front title. A mess of great formations over a large period of time (with weather and changing foliage that has a real impact on the combat). The AI still leaves a lot to be desired, especially in quick battles.
Summary: The next installment in the Battle Front Combat Missions series Fortress Italy (CMFI) brings all the good features, relative spotting, full one to one representation of soldiers on the battle field real ballistic modeling found in Combat Mission Battle for Normandy. And then adds excellent new features to the map / scenario editor.
Summary: The Mediterranean as a Theater of WW2 has not held near the interest for me as any other. Not entirely sure of why that is, but probably has some to do with the reading that I have done that has peaked my interest in WW2. So much more is devoted to the Western and Eastern fronts or even the Pacific.
Summary: Still the gold standard for WEGO, squad-based, company level "strategy" games set in the Second World War. Panzer Command is coming along nicely, but lacks a decent map editor. It's unfortunate BFC put this one in the rearview mirror with a couple of minor bugs still on the workbench, but it shouldn't deter players from still enjoying this one, even years after release.
Summary: This has to be the best of the CM WWII trilogy back out at a price that you cannot afford to miss. This game allows for the armchair general to control his or her troops in action - and you can cheat using non authentic units for those who must win.
Summary: ...As the Rainbow Six games (bar the Las Vegas nonsense) are to shooters: Very good, difficult, and tactical. If you find click-fest "strategy" games dull, and yearn for a game where understanding realistic tactical problems - not knowing how to tank-rush - is a boon, then these games are for you. A further benefit is the still-active multiplayer scene for these games. Playing against human opponents is a challenge like no other in combat mission.
