Combat Mission Shock Force — British Forces

Discussion in 'Gaming and Software' started by stickybomb, Nov 26, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Looks like there's a new CMSF British Forces module due out soon from Battlefront a $25.

    I haven't played CM for donkeys years but I thought that it would be worth a heads up for the Arrse gaming community.

  2. Is CMSF any good?
     
  3. Sorry Instinct, I only ever saw the Mk 1 version which was around about 10 years ago. Mind you, it was the mutts nuts at the time but a lot has happened since — including some competition (Steel Beasts et al).
    Maybe there are some current players out there.
     
  4. I think CMSF is actually quite good. when it first came out it was full of problems but it has since been patched up and is very enjoyable. Marines is a good add on, so hopefully the Brit Module will continue in that vain when it finally comes out.
     
  5. Call me Mr thicky but what does CMSF stand for ?

    Knackers. just seen the topic title. what a tit :oops:
     
  6. Id have deleted the first part of your post when you editited it. :wink:

    Is CMSF similar to the CM games?
     
  7. If you search for Combat Mission Shock Force theres, guess what, a demo. Cheers for that sticky, i'll have a look.
     
  8. Guess what i just did. And i lost the whole damn weekend. Its now ordered off amazon and i cant bloody wait!!!!
     
  9. Good stuff. Ive always had the demo but after reading this thread i got the game off ebay (last week). For the price im not complaining, and the Brit forces will be good.

  13. would anyone compare it to COD or BF2 :? Is it worth investing in?
     
  14. Personally, I'd recommend it, but it is nothing like COD or BF2.

    It is a tactical wargame, with forces up to a battlegroup being playable, but you can get more on a map. It is unlike almost any mainstream game in terms of accuracy of simulation and playing style.

    It's a small company that makes it, so it was a bit buggy when it came out, but numerous patches have made it much better.

    Try the demo. The 1.11 version should be out shortly.
     
  15. I have down loaded the demo and can't get the damn thing to work. When I get to the set up screen the controls all appear at the bottom but the top 2/3 of the screen still has the mission brief on it. :x
