Welcome to The Few Good Men

Ya know? I went to Steam and was all ready to click <purchase> when I decided to take a quick look at user reviews.
Hmm. There seem to be some problems with it that would likely bother me a lot. To the extent that I decided to hold
off on buying this right away and give it a little time to see if/when they iron out some apparent wrinkles. They don't
look to be major problems.
Over the years I've been trying to curtail my impulse game buying and in this instance it has been a successful.
For how long is another discussion.

Well, they've been working on that title for a while, sad to think that it's "not quite right". Nice job keeping your wallet in your pocket.

It just seems like a dumbed down version of CS.

What's CS? Its not Counter Strike, for sure... :p

I have Lock N Load Digital (Nam) but just too many other things to nibble/play TBH
 
Nort is very old school. We used to play a lot of Campaign Series. A LOT!!
However, it had a fatal problem. When playing PBM your (or you) could replay indicidual fights until you got the result you wanted. Needless to say it became a HUGE problem when playing tournaments
over on The Blitz. After it became common knowledge the bloom was off the rose and its popularity dropped significantly. This is about the time it lost me too. It wasn't too long until this issue was actually
(mostly) fixed along with other longstanding problems. Nort kept right on playing, and still does. I tried to get back into it, but by then is was old and it just never ran properly on the next MS OS I was using.
I still miss it. It was/is very cool. I'd probably still be playing it too if it ran ok. I'm sure @Nort can fill in some more details.

There was no "fatal" issue with Campaign Series (CS). It is an elegant game. If you liked Avalon Hill's Panzer Leader and PanzerBlitz, this is the game for you. Plain and simple.

I clicked on the link and they still ask for €26, cheeky sods.

"There was no "fatal" issue with Campaign Series..."
I thought the ability to cheat was. At least it was for me at the time. Ending tournament play.
And I recognize that it was eventually addressed and mostly fixed. I mean a player could still cheat, but it could no longer be concealed from the opponent.
And the amount of time we spent playing it was soo much fun. It truly was/is a great game.
It's just not so great now given the difficulty most find in getting it to run.
