Just wanted to know any ones thoughts on this - is it still worth a punt ?
Noticed a number of threads regarding bugs & issues - is it still a good game to buy?

It depends if you have additional ~ 30 quid in your pocket.

I'm kinda of hoping its a complete remake of the A bridge too far, that was a fantastic theatre.
In my opinion ABTF was a real turning point for the CC series.

I think it is worth it.... There are a lot of enhancements in LSA over previous versions of CC which resulted in a lot of the bug posts/talk but with each patch the game is getting the fixes it needs....

Been playing a H2H campaign using the 21Beta patch

Great fun and very few issues... certainly none major that we've seen.

Thanks gents, - an hour to go before the download finishes. Hopefully ill get a chance to run through a few maneuvers before the Mrs calls last rounds.
I opted for the download only version, anyone know where I can get some album covers if I decide to burn it to DVD ?

Try torrent sites.

And I guess you can also use torrent file as your game file when you want to reinstall it. Just deposit your serial number.

If you come from the originals, stick with them (one exception being CC4/WAR). If some reputable mods such as GJS get ported over to one of the new versions, maybe. All the re-makes are rather dry (weak Grand Campaigns).

At the current time, a modded CC5/CC3 is much more entertaining.

One exception being, if you are a Battle of the Buldge guy, take WAR over CC4.

Hey arkturas what did/do you think?

Just interested as almost everybody here seems to be positive or negative. Doesn't appear to be any middle ground or depth to the feedback....

Here is a site with art for the game: http://www.mobygames.com/game/close-combat-the-longest-day/cover-art/gameCoverId,172842/

Don't know about COI, WAR, TLD, or LSA. Sometimes, I like to think, I was "smart" enough to not involve myself.

Its not really a money issue. For me, its a time issue.

I bought CCMT, so if you can figure out how to get at the "Updates", this game is neither Dry or HORRID. It avoids, most of the poorly executed features, by simply not including them.

You get a pure wargame, with the best mission editor, and very few system contraints, which allow you to set up any scenario of your choosing.

Data modifications are easy, and the soldier actions, are an outstanding improvement of the base games of the 90's.

Yeah.  Don't waste your money on LSA.  The best mods on CC5 make lsa look like a joke.  Stick to CC5 and enjoy years and years of great mods.

I have been thinking about LSA, so I was wondering if you could elaborate on your remarks.

The reasons I haven't gotten LSA so far, are as follows:

1. I am not sure, but I cant seem to find at least thumbnails of all the maps.

2. It could take years for the debugging to take place, if in fact it is eventually finished.

3. I want to wait until it hits the bargain bin (under $ 20 or $ 15), as a matter of principle (i.e. not money).

My brother & I are avid CC fans, LSA for us was a good game - nice remake of CC2:ABTF, IMO.

I like LSA.  I especially like one of the campaign enhancements.  This is the first version that doesnt make a battlegroup completely disband in every case off the map if they lose the battle.  In LSA, if you (or the computer AI) still control an exit VL that leads to a freindly map and force morale drops and the battle ends, your battlegroup will retreat back to that map instead of disappearing to the rear.  

I always hated the way CC4 and CC5 would remove a battlegroup full of men off the map if for the misfortune of one bad battle.  This often left nothing to stop the enemy for several rounds.  Now, if your battlegroup retreats to next map, you can 'live to fight another day'.   Makes playing the PC a little more tolerable too.  Gone are the days of CC5 where you could clean out the first few maps in the campaign vs the computer and walk unopposed all the way in.

I also like the merging of BG's  Nice way to get 2 weaker battlegroups into one stronger battlegroup to keep the fight going.


If the modding eventually starts to use LSA, I think some really nice GC's can be made with these improvements.  GJS and Stalingrad would be some good ones to port up to the new engine.
