This is a really great series, but I'm constantly disappointed by the pricing. $60 is downright tame compared to the prices some of the last big release went for. Seriously, we have content packs that change the setting and equipment of Battle for Normandy to related theaters, and they're on the store for $75-$90? There was even a major patch that fixed a bunch of problems with the base game and offered various improvements to the interface, but you have to pay for it. As much as I love the series, it's increasingly hard to justify the price to myself, let alone trying to get some friends to buy it for multiplayer matches.

Price seems a bit steep on this one.
It may be an amazing game but I'll wait and see how this is ones it is released.

Not Close Combat. That's a totally different series.
