Wish there was a turnbased version

Great little game, but I wish it were turnbased. If so, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

I fully agree. I would like to take my time with this one.

Not to take anything at all away from Firefight. But there is a turn based/realtime (It's an interesting concept actually) WWII sim in Combat Mission. Which like this game is only sold through a website.

They actually have a couple of versions now. There's Beyond Overlord (D-Day to the Rhine basically.) then if you want more armor battles there's the russian front Barbarossa to Berlin. You could check it out at

Me and my dad (in Iraq) play the game by email all the time.

Doesn't take away from this game however, So buy these games first then pick up one of those other games because it's different not because its better.

I've been playing Combat Mission since it came out about four years ago. Excellent game but a whole different feel from Firefight. I wouldn't like Ff in turn base. To me, this is almost the perfect squad based game. Years ago I played Close Combat 3 for a while and thought what a neat game it would be if it had a random map generator and you could just play a scenario. The only two things I'd like to see are a better zoom feature and a meeting engagement type of battle.
