RicardoL.Mar 9, 2004Wow! what a nice game! I recommend it!
PaulC.Aug 16, 2006Cracking game - loses one point for the AI being not "quite" as good as they make out. If you get caught out on either offensive or defensive operations, your nominated commander's decision making skills go "walkies" . I think the exit strategies they try to employ are very long term, where in some instances a "get out of there asap and screw the consequences" approach would be better. You end up having to micromanage these situations. But not bad all the same. The "Combat mission" series is particularly bad at this, you are a divisional commander with literally thousands of units of all kinds under your control, and you end up having to tell a guy in a building to kneel down and crawl forward 3 yards to get a better line of sight. At least this game tries to be consistent - you are a divisional level commander who"occaisionally" has to micromanage. Combat Mission has you doing both in a round after tedious round of micro management to the nth degree over. So a better game than that. Can't wait to see the new release from Panther, coming soon.… Expand
