Seems like the US side could use a few more troops for better play balance.

Well balanced, great tactical infantry knife fight amongst the ruins of a village. Very atmospheric, enjoyed it, very tense!

Interesting scenario due to the scale, yet I am not sure the CMx2 engine copes very well with the kind of intricate terrain being represented. LOS was kind of a hit and miss thing.

Leaving that aside, this was a very good tactical exercise :)

It's a very unusual scenario. A fierce, intense town battle with mainly infantry and almost no line of sight.

Never played a scenario like that before. It was a very interesting and unusual battle.

I loved this dirty little knife fight amongst the ruins. Kudos to the scenario designer for a great looking map and well balanced scenario. I would only suggest either additional ammunition (a few of my German sections were down to grenades only by the time we ceased fire), or a reduction in the time limit..

Some issues with entering certain building levels.

A bit different - small unit with interesting asymmetrical objectives. Loved it. The game went rigth to the end with many of my teams running out of ammo. A nail biter.

An entertaining scenario but not sure the Allies have enough troops to get the job done without a strong dose of luck.

I've played this scenario twice now. The first one was vs a similar level opponent and was very close. The 2nd was against a far superior opponent a total victory for him.
