  1. These games really are the pinnacle of strategic warfare, and anybody of this bent who hasn’t already visited really should give the Combat Mission Anthology a shot. Sure, the complexity will be too much for many, but persevere and there’s a wealth of intelligent fun to be had here.
  2. Overall Combat Mission Anthology is a great buy, if you’re looking to explore the deeper end of the World War II tactical combat pool.
  3. The whole gambit of interesting locations from Normandy to an entire Russian campaign offers the strat player a real mind throbbing treat as you can play and assume a number of sides.
  4. Moving about the map and changing views quickly to cover all your troops during the movement turn isn’t easy and the path-finding ability of some of the units leaves a bit to be desired but on the whole Combat Mission Anthology can be highly recommended to all the armchair generals out there.

    The Combat Mission games are not for the faint-hearted or action RTS fan. If the prospect of flipping back and forth between the game and Acrobat for a few hours doesn't phase you, then Combat Mission could be right up your alley.

    The Combat Mission series is still my favourite computer game now in 2007. "Beyond Overlord" isn't as good as the others, but when it was released seven years ago it was ground breaking. Full Review »
