  1. If you’re looking for an infinitely replayable wargame, then look no further. CM2 will provide you with hours of fun.

    This is, quite simply, one of the best games of any genre available for the PC (and even the Mac!)
  3. All the innovations and improvements in Barbarossa to Berlin... take a great game and make it even greater.
  4. The game is about as deep as they come, boasting advanced unit AI, a multitude of options, all the unit details anyone could possibly want, an astounding ballistics physics engine and literally hundreds of hours of play time.
  5. This is the champagne of tactical wargames, and the best vintage at that. [Jan 2003, p.72]
  6. A true tactical strategy game with enough combat scenarios and a great multiplayer feature fans of this genre will like.
  7. Through four years of massive commitment and seasonal hell with over 300 vehicles and 600 infantry types, this a game to challenge the serious gamer.

    Perfect strategic and tactical WWII wargame. It really makes you use your brain!

    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.

    Needs a brush-up on the graphics.
