I understand GtC is the last in the series. Pity.

One "can use the powerful editor". GTC's editor is anything but powerful, it's the same toned-down one from CC5.

I suppose it's an informative review for someone new to Close Combat, but for a vet, it's shallow. You didn't scrutinize anything--so I'm sure the developers will feature it all over!

To me it read more like a product description than a real review. Some of the same text was cut-n-pasted from Jim's PITF review also.

You're right to a large extent. I was trying to point out that, while still fun, the engine is getting long in the tooth. As for the cut-and-paste, I've reviewed so many CC games that I found myself repeating most everything. I cleared the cut-and-paste with the editor.

I also pointed out the the proliferation of Bren gun sections would allow some new infantry tactics.
