On the heels Close Combat and Close Combat II: A Bridge Too Far, Microsoft has released a third version of the turn-based strategy game, this time leaving the green fields of Holland and Belgium for the vast snow-covered wastes of the Russian front. Battle scenarios can be designed and commanding officers can now be assigned to each fighting unit to motivate the troops and prevent cowardly retreats.
The player's objectives are to capture enemy strongholds and win various campaigns on the Russian Steppes, using defensive tatics and ambush techniques. Enhancements and improvements offered by this edition in the series include the ability to assign hot-key shortcuts to groups of units, the use of waypoints, and the option of changing weather conditions toward the end of each mission. ~ Nick Smith, All Game Guide
