I hope you are all well during the holidays! ☺️
I am a 'newcommer' to the CM series and war gaming in general. I have been a gamer all my life, and love strategy games and especially tactical oriented games. I have played both, BN, FB, BS, FI and now I have taken the jump into what has to be the most interesting of all the Combat Mission settings imo, Shock Force.
Even though I own a lot of the CM games, I don't have a lot of experience with them. I don't believe I have much more than 100 hours total, and I am definitely not a veteran or pro yet. I do however feel that I have surpassed that initial learning bump and have come to grasp with a lot of the games deep mechanics (c2 network mechanics still elude me somehow).
The reason I haven't played every campaign to completetion in all of the titles yet, is that I quickly loose focus during the major battles of especially some of the ww2 titles. So far the scope of the vanilla shock force 2 campaign is right up my ally. I'm having a blast! I love the setting and the asymmetrical warfare and small to medium sized battles.
So here is my question. Of the three expansion packs, which one would you recommend? Which one has the most value for money and the most interesting campaigns and scenarios?
Thanks in advance! ☺️👍
