CC2: A Bridge Too Far had the honour of being the computer game I kept the longest, and I got it out periodically over many years to give it another go. In spite of its flaws I enjoyed how the Grand Campaign (was it called that?) played out. How does the GC compare in this remake for players that have played both?

Thanks!

P.S. I bought the Longest Day a while back, but couldn't get into its campaign - it just felt like a random battle generator to me.

For me CC2 seemed to linear or "guided". I personally prefer the CC4/CC5 strat layer to all previous CC incarnations. It seems more realistic since you have the option of moving your battlegroups multiple directions as opposed to being on a track. There are still plenty of abstractions that parallels between CC2 and CC5 could be drawn but IMO CC5 went in the right direction in removing some of those movement restrictions and introducing more depth to the strat layer.
