    Default Let's talk about FREE WAR GAMES; Abandonware

    http://free-game-downloads.mosw.com/...e_too_far.html


    Close Combat 2 Operation Market Garden.

    Folks, this is a classic tactics game and even now in the age of dazzling graphics you won't be wasting your time downloading this little program and playing it. It's addictive. But seriously, teh Brits had the worst antitank weapons; not rocket propelled, but SPRING PROPELLED. They guys that designed that weapon had a big hate on for Tommy Atkinson or something...

    My favorite moment in the game? ordering a squad of Brits to run from the shelter of a farmhouse across the road to a block of houses and getting mowed down by a German machine gunner on the roof. When I looked back to check on them there the poor buggers were in pools of blood...

    Sorry for being a bit anal here, but I feel I must comment on this.

    Yes, the PIAT wasn't very good - it had been superceded by rocket-propelled devices such as Bazooka, but it did work (although you needed balls of steel to get within range of your target in order to use the damn thing).

    The British also had the very good 6lbr anti-tank gun, and it was this which enabled the Oosterbeek perimeter to be held against the SS Panzers for so long.

    Unfortunately, in order to have heavy weapons like the 6lbr, the British drop needed to include gliders to carry them, meaning that it had to take place several miles to the west of Arnhem where there was the necessary open space to land the gliders.

    Haha, I've still got Close Combat 2 on CD. I took it out, installed it, and started playing it not long ago. I found I'd lost all my skill at the game and I got absolutely destroyed. I remember being good at that game.

    I was going to say....it can't be abandonware because I purchased Close Combat V this year from a games shop.

    I dont know if its abandonware, but CC2 is 11 years old. I got it cheap back in the 90's anyway.
