Close Combat: Cross of Iron Review Click Here
Score - A tremendous updated version of Close Combat III is filled to the brim with improved AI, a new scenario, community modifications, and engine tweaks: 7/8
If you’ve never played the Close Combat series, you’re really missing out on a great tactical strategy game. If you have, then Close Combat: Cross of Iron treads familiar ground, but the compatibility improvements and game enhancements are enough to justify a look. Close Combat: Cross of Iron has a lot of scenarios covering battles, operations, and campaigns on the Eastern Front of World War II: plenty to keep you busy. The tweaks made to the game are meaningful and driven by user feedback, and the replay value is high with the included modification tools and multiplayer components. Because the game has been out for quite a while, there are already a huge number of modifications and additional battles available, and the community is feverishly converting them over to this title. This is by far the best of the Matrix remakes so far, and even though Close Combat: Cross of Iron appears to be a superficial revision to a nine-year-old game, the added content makes the game a notable improvement.
