Summary: I played the Demo of this game and decided I had to get it. Found this older copy and thought what a steal for the price. Found that you need to down load the up dates to make the game playable on Windows 7 but once done the game is great. Just go to Battlefront.com and follow the instructions.
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: For any armchair general looking to command modern forces in either real time or turn based mode (for those who really like to plan their moves out) you couldn't ask for a better game than this.
One year later, out of the tunnel. full steam ahead!

Summary: Since it's release last year Battlefront has been plugging away at what initially was a rather too buggy and inaccessible (interfacewise) game, with a more than fair share of frustrations in the game mechanics (mind you, that is compared to the "almost flawless" first generation Combat Mission...
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.
Possibly the best PC wargame that (almost) nobody has heard

Summary: The Combat Mission series took the derivative world of computer wargames and introduced some game mechanics that set it apart from everything before it. Put briefly, it managed to introduce a dose of realism into a turn-based system, where previously these had been rather 'gamey'.
Summary: Deciding whether or not you will like this game is remarkably easy..... If you want to see movie-style action of rows of soldiers being gunned down and vehicles exploding in real-time then you might be a little disappointed.
Summary: When I stumbled across Combat Mission: Beyond Overlord some two years ago I knew my prayers had been answered. Finally a WWII strategy game that solves the traditional problems of turn based games but without the awful click fest of an RTS, through its unique method of WEGO rather than IGOUGO.
Summary: This is the second of three "Combat Mission" releases by independently-minded designers Battlefront.com, the other two being "Beyond Overlord" (the first one) and "Afrika Korps" (this year's release). Battlefront is now working on a new engine for a future series.
