The sequel to Microsoft's Close Combat, Close Combat: A Bridge Too Far continues the World War II theme by recreating the events around the ill-fated Operation Marketgarden. Players can choose to play a single battle or an entire campaign. A resource allocation model allows players to decide when to reinforce or rest their troops and offers the capability to add new weapons and units.
The game contains 130 realistically modeled infantrymen and vehicles, including assault units, flame-throwing tanks and half tracks. Players may choose various levels of difficulty and may play as either the Axis or Allied powers.
Close Combat: A Bridge Too Far supports one or two players with two-player mode available by modem, LAN or Internet (via Microsoft's Gamezone). The game, at the time of release, requires players to have Internet Explorer capability in order to play at the Microsoft hosted site. Gameplay is mouse and keyboard driven with most functions controlled by drop-and-drag or mouse clicks. An in-game tutorial, detailed manual and reference card is also included. ~ Jim Muntone, All Game Guide
