How is this compared to the original. Is there an option use the classic game play? I remember jumping map tp map without any ammo left and that really strong feeling of dread from any attack. I am afraid the new campaign layer will take that tenseness away from the game.

All feed back is appreciated.

LSA is a much different game than CC2. It has a strat map like CC4/CC5 or TLD/WAR with some new features; blowing bridges, getting support squads from a 2nd BG, etc.

For dread ammo can run short sometimes but, especially for the Germans, the small BG's definitely make each man/squad important so you have to play very carefully.

Thanks for the reply. I passed on this but GOG had the original CC2 on sale for like $1.60 so I picked it up. It plays fine aside from the low resolution. I look forward to playing it this weekend.

I used to play CC2 back in the late nineties and it was one of my favorite games. One of the new features I like is being able to set way-points for your units. I just started playing CCLSA so I'm still learning. One thing I do miss about the original is that CC2 had a unit/weapons description which is now missing from CCLSA.

best wishes

In the Battle Group screen if you select a squad and then;
- hover over a weapon picture in the right bottom the name of the weapon will appear
- click on weapon picture you will hear the weapon sound

Unfortunately though there is nothing on this screen that provides you the damage or range.


When in battle though you can select a squad and see its AP and AT damage and range.




Still the best CC even with its known unaddressed issues: https://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=3716292
