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 â including some competition (Steel Beasts et al).
Maybe there are some current players out there.
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.
I down loaded the game a couple of weeks ago and was wondering if its worth getting the marine version.
Does it add anything worth paying for to the game or should i wait for the British forces add on?
The Marine module does add to the base game as it adds new red units as well.
If you download the latest Demo, there is a mission with Marines in so you can get an idea of the differences.
If you have problems with it at all, track down the technical support forums on Battlefront's website. The developers will help if they can.
The learning curve is rather steep. Small things make big differences and it is very different to nearly every other game out there.
Losses depend on the side that your are playing as. The Red forces are usually going to get a pasting, even if they win. Blue forces can lose big in an asymmetric scenario, such as when red has armour and blue doesn't have much in the way of anti-armour assets, or in urban fighting, where it is very easy to make a mistake.
Large losses are often a sign that you are being too aggressive and not moving with sufficient support.
