    Oh, yeah...I did play those Close Combat games..There is a whole series of it.
    (starting with russia /fire brigade ?).

    The next having a bit more sharp figures/tanks than the one before.

    It's fun , for once .
    It's great fun, to play it...but I never replayed them.

    If you find it cheaply (say 2 euros/ 2pnds) it's worth the buck for today's standards, anything more is too much.

    I keep meaning to buy it myself. Played most of the MS Close Combat series as they came out. I believe the Matrix versions have been updated and expanded. Gameplay is simple enough that you can dip into it as you fancy, no need to set aside a couple of hours of intense concentration.

    CC: A Bridge Too Far was the only one of the originals to include British troops which was a big plus. The only real gripe was that Bren gunners only had about 10 mags while the Germans seemed to be able to carry a thousand-or-so rounds with no penalty for their MG34/42s!

    Wonder if it's too late to add it to my Christmas list...
