Not only is CC in the Top 250 PC Games of all time.

Its now listed as one of the best 20 Wargames ever made:

Long before Company of Heroes and Men of War started storming MG nests and petrol-bombing Panzers, Atomic’s Close Combat series was running amok with a hot Thompson, a pilfered Panzerschreck and a backpack full of pluck. Utilising a surprisingly sophisticated top-down tactics engine, the CCs boldly combined credible ballistics and true line-of-sight modelling with real-time action and brutally honest psychological simulation. Shells ricocheted, men cowered, PC tacticians purred appreciatively. Instalments 2 to 5 are generally considered the apogee of the series (I’m particularly fond of A Bridge Too Far) but the relatively modern Matrix Games remakes (Iron Cross, The Longest Day, Last Stand Arnhem, Panthers in the Fog, etc,) also have their adherents.

Crazy huh? Nice to see Open General- Freebie/Win7 version of oldtimers game Panzer general 2 on the list also.

What a game that was, as well as the grand old times on the old Club SSI forums.. 20 years ago?
