Many of us have not been able to test The Bloody First, so I can't include in ranking, sorry.

They are all good in one way or another, but one you're missing is the original Close Combat. The one that started it all. But to answer your question, I will through my vote to Last Stand Arnhem (A Bridge Too Far).

1) Last Stand Arnhem - 2 BG’s per map that contribute units with possibly 2 entry VL’s for deployment
2) The Longest Day - less features than LSA but more than any Atomic CC game plus a large number of mods

Last Stand Arnhem only with the lastest patch published, it has better AI. If you do not know, I have made a mod few time ago converting it in a Wacht am Rhein 1946 mod. Just you need the original Wacht am Rhein because it uses the maps folder from it.

CC2. Easy decision. After that infantry became more fragile reducing the length of fire fights another outcome being high turn over of soldiers so less chance to bond. Also best campaign system.

CGGrognard, I think that "A bridge Too Far" and "Last Stand Arnhem are different; I put your vote in CC2 if you think that is ok.

don't agree on that point myself tbh,

quote:

Close Combat – Last Stand Arnhem is a highly enhanced new release of Close Combat, using the latest Close Combat engine with many additional improvements. Its design is based on the critically acclaimed Close Combat – A Bridge Too Far,


as i would have said A Bridge Too Far is only 1/2 a point same as Last Stand Arnhem is the same game just updated to a new engine and name imo

CC3 The Russian Front, most played, best memories.
CC2 Bridge too Far, a close second

CC4 and 5 never came close, limited playtime compared to CC2 and 3.

CC2 and Last time I think are different. Different campaign system. CC2_had a unique campaign mechanic. Also said it a lot but f irefights far superior in CC2 due to infantry not made of glass. Graviteam also get this right, takes a lot of bullets to get casualties which makes for a far better game and be able to create real life tactics without fear of most of your soldiers wiped out before you get anywhete. The twitch seemed to confirm my fear, in fact they looked even more fragile (actually it's more a case of units being way to accurate) than ever before.
