Best squad based combat game similar to CMBO?

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if you war game fans can help me with a question.

I used to have Ambush and Squad Leader as board games when I was a kid.

 

I have CMBO, and I enjoy it, but there are no individual soldiers.

 

I enjoyed controlling a squad and there were also RPG elements to that game, since soldiers could survive

and return in other campaigns.

 

I am wondering if there a pc game that is squad based war combat and similar to those squad boardgames?

 

Thanks in advance.

I am not an expert on them at all but you might check out the class of games called first person shooters. Otherwise, I can't think of an Ambush for the PC (I owned the game too).

1st person shooters are definitely a different category all-together, I would classify that as action, not strategy.

 

There are games like Company of Heroes that are in the spirit of games like Ambush, but they are real time strategy, not turn-based.

 

Some similar games that have been suggested are Jagged Alliance and Battle Academy.

 

X-Com is a great squad game, but not WW II.

 

Welcome any other suggestions!

Perhaps not the thing you are looking for - but battle with snipers and a few LMGs can be arranged in CM. No carry over per se.

That's as close as you can get to individuals.

Perhaps Men of War - Assault Squad 2 might be what you want, or the Commandos series of games? There is also Silent Storm which features squad-based combat, and in the FPS genre there is Hidden & Dangerous 2.
