Combat Mission app review: engage in an intense mission



Are you ready to accept a mission that is intense, fast-paced, realistic, and incredibly challenging?

Engage in Battle

The Combat Mission app throws you right into the heart of the battle, which is actually the invasion of Normandy which took place in June 1944. Here you will be commanding the German and American troops in a 3D battle. You'll be able to engage in eye level and bird's-eye views to ensure you take control of the battle and come out on top. You can play head-to-head online or you can play on your own if you want. The app supports Game Center so you can invite friends to play or you can just allow the game to find you an opponent online. What's really cool with this game is that it uses actually historically accurate infantry units and vehicles from the real battle.

Keep in mind this app is meant for players who are 12 years and older due to the realistic violence. In the app's most recent update there were a number of bug fixes. There is one in-app purchase available priced at $0.99 and gives you a Scenario Pack. Players have given the game a pretty high user rating of four out of five stars. Players have made all kinds of comments about the game as they love the strategizing that is necessary, the incredible graphics, and the battles themselves.
