Inside Mac Games has posted a review of Battlefront's recently released strategy game, Combat Mission: Barbarossa to Berlin.
Here's a clip from the review:
Starting from scratch, Combat Mission is unlike any game that's been seen on the Mac to date. Yes, strategy games sell decently, the World War II perspective adding almost nothing new, especially in the wake of hits like Medal of Honor: Allied Assault and Return to Castle Wolfenstein. Combat Mission has fused the two themes together, the most similar game to it being Microsoft's Close Combat series, which used real-time strategy with combat-realistic elements such as routed forces and simple unit emotions encoded into the game.Be sure to check out the complete review.
IMG Review: Combat Mission: Barbarossa to Berlin
Combat Mission: Barbarossa to Berlin has trumped the Close Combat games in almost every respect, the new ruler of the playground ensuring that Microsoft's lunch money never actually goes towards the purchase of food. Similar in appearance only from the first glance when players are asked to position their units using the classic overhead view, the differences begin to spawn in what turns out to be an extensively updated version of Close Combat pumped full of barely-legal steroid-esque substances and stepping over Close Combat's twitching body after stealing its giggling, attractive and personable prom date.
