Close Combat 2 is the continuation of the massively popular tactical wargame
(such as Command and Conquer
) of the same name that rocked the gaming world back in 1996 and is almost worthy of its predecessor. This time, you get to recreate the battle of Operation Market Green
and as last time, you can select to play as the German or Allied forces. You can choose to play just one battle, a scenario featuring man battles, of a campaign
, where you get to play out the whole operation. As last time, your units have personality and you can't help but sympathize with them, they can be fatigued, of low moral, they can lack ammunition, much like in a real combat. Also as last time, the game is fantastic in detail and authenticity of the weapons and combat system from World War 2
. The visuals are as stunning and detailed as they were in the last game, maybe even better and have excellent and realistic sound effects, down to the rifles firing. The game is insanely addictive and fun to play for hours on end and if you like wargames, this one is a must have in your game collection.
