  1. Loaded with tons of action and realistic war time simulations, SA2 even with its flaws, gives any RTS fan a realistic taste of war.
  2. Tactical combat in World War II with a realistic flair is Squad Assault: the Second Wave’s claim to fame.
  3. While we still admire the unique gameplay mechanics of Squad Assault, it certainly feels as though the series, as well as the technology, is being pushed a game too far with Second Wave.

    There isn't much more here than we saw with Squad Assault: The West Front, when it comes right down to it. And with no facelift in the intervening years, it's going to have that much harder of a time appealing to the non-bearded types.
  5. Mediocre "Close Combat" update, two years old already. [Christmas 2005, p.102]
  6. I admire the level of customization that Freedom Games put into this title, but it seems that it may have detracted from creating an overall enjoyable experience.
  7. I admire the level of customisation available but it seems that this may have detracted from creating an overall enjoyable experience.
