Erwin Posted September 15, 2012 Share Posted September 15, 2012 Just completed this campaign. Well, I played all the scenarios but the last one (attacking the beaches) as it seemed silly and not entertaining so I CF'd after 20 minutes into the scenario. The initial scenarios were fun, although each successive one was less fun. Conrath was my first CMFI campaign and unfortunately, I didn't enjoy it as much as the CMBN campaigns. The problem I had was that all the maps until the last were small and one had limited options - every situation was a head-on assault. After a few dozen of those in CMBN and CMFI etc. they just get repetitive. I was initially excited re the final scenario as the map is one of the largest I have seen in any CM2 WW2 scenario. But, then one is only given 2 platoons and tanks and two platoons of inf and no artillery at all to cope with enemy ATG's. The scenario more than most became a game of examining LOS's to ensure that ATG's couldn't see/fire at the German tanks. Very time-consuming and not fun. The few units seemed lost in the large terrain area. I know the designer wanted something "realistic". But, I couldn't help but wonder if Conrath had more units than that when he arrived at the beach. However, it took a while to save, so I imagine that more units would have slowed things to treacle(?) So, a good effort, as I know how much work goes into campaigns. But, ultimately I hoped to find something more entertaining. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
