"Close Combat 2: A Bridge Too Far" comes to mind.

I think the player is using some kind of Roland32 emulator for the music.

I'll throw one into the ring. One of the first proper flight sims I ever played. Really liked this game growing up.



I loved that one "Feet Wet".. But I was already grown up, so now you're making me feel old. Graphics were much better than Red Baron/Aces over Europe/Aces over Pacific.

I had a Mac in 1993 and played the following: Graphsims FA-18 Hornet (now available on the IPad), A-10 Attack! and several games by a company called Deadly Games. The three I remember were U-Boat, Battle of Britain and M4 Sherman. Played them to death.

Absolutely loved Lords of Conquest!  That and Starfleet are my two most missed games.  If I could ever get off my lazy butt, I would love to write my own Starfleet.

I was a complete SSI Whore the entire 80's beginning with Kampgruppe and played the hell out of Battles of Napoleon. And I'm still mad about their folding-up.  >:(

One of the first wargames that got me hooked. Learned just a while back that Charles Moylan was one of the devs who now makes Combat Mission which is the game series I'm most hooked on now. So I have him to thank for a lot  :bd: :notworthy: O0 :smitten:

Flight Commander 2
