Close Combat is a computer game originally based on the acclaimed Avalon Hill board game Advanced Squad Leader (ASL). Each game includes a mixture of infantry and armoured units, while the later games also included artillery, mortars and air support. Although viewed from a top-down perspective, the later games modelled terrain elevation, and included buildings with multiple floors and viewable sides. The major emphasis has always been realism, and modelled the emotional or physical state of the soldiers and equipment which included, panicked, berserk, burning, fatigued, incapacitated, pinned and many others. There are many other innovations in the Close Combat games, which combine to make Close Combat much unique amongst other Real-time tactics [RTT] and real-time strategy [RTS] computer games. The psych modelling of the individual men, units, means that the game requires realistic military tactics, such as careful placement of troops in cover, ambush, advancing under cover and using terrain or smoke-screens to cover advancing troops. Good tactical management, such as keeping teams near their officers, not sending raw recruits on assaults and maintaining fire discipline so as not to run out of ammunition are all necessary for the player to win. In many ways, close combat is both a simulation and a game. The game can be played against an AI opponent in campaigns and operations or head to head against other players. There are quite literally thousands of mods and maps as well as mod/map tools for download to cover almost every major WW2 campaign. There are also mods for many other periods and conflicts. You can download them all from here at CSO.
Close Combat II Downloads Forums & Discussion
The best games remain exciting years after they're released. That's definitely the case with the real-time strategy game Close Combat and its sequel, Close Combat II: A Bridge Too Far. In this instalment, you command troops on the Allied or Axis side, attacking or defending strategic bridges. The game's most distinctive feature is the way it factors in the psychology of your troops: if your soldiers think an order is ridiculous or if their stress level exceeds a certain threshold, they won t obey. Close Combat 2 A Bridge Too Far focuses on the Airborne drops into Holland during Operation Market Garden. Many payers favourite version. V hard. Loved this when it came out! Published by Microsoft.

Close Combat V ALL Downloads & Discussion
Close Combat 5 Invasion Normandy drops you onto the beaches and hedgerows of Normandy. Published in 2000 by SSI. The Close Combat series has been in development just about as long as World War II lasted. In that time, the series went from the hedgerows of Normandy to the floodlands of Holland, out to the snowy steppes of Russia, and into the snows of the Ardennes during the Battle of the Bulge. The fifth Close Combat game takes the series back to where it started: in Normandy during Operation Overlord - the D-Day invasion. However, Close Combat: Invasion Normandy isn't actually billed as Close Combat 5.

Close Combat First to Fight Forum
Not strictly CC, but a branch of the same tree! Close Combat: First to Fight is a squad-based military first-person shooter (FPS) game created by Destineer Studios for the Windows, Macintosh and Xbox platforms. It was released in April 2005. The player commands a fireteam of 3 other U.S. Marines in a realistic, though fictional, scenario where the United Nations sends Marines into Lebanon when their Prime Minister falls ill and Syria and Iran send forces to bolster certain factions. The game features a psychological model for every AI character, including enemies, civilians, and team members. No two games should play the same due to the variability of the simulated human reaction to stress.It was designed with input from active-duty and retired Marines from 3rd Battalion 1st Marines, who recently participated in combat around Fallujah, Iraq during Operation Phantom Fury that became known as the Second Battle of Fallujah.
