Operation Combat 2

Operation Combat II 2 By Land, Sea & Air PC CD turn-based war strategy tank game 






This turn-based strategy game offered on a single CD-ROM resembles a simplified version of QQP's The Perfect General. The graphics and sound found in OC2 are right around par for games in this genre (and price range). Landscapes are fairly detailed, with different town buildings such as churches and farmhouses. The various combat units are fairly archaic, but can be easily identified. Sound effects remind the gamer they are in the middle of a battle, with the squeak of tank treads, the stomping of marching infantry, and blasting shells doing their destructive work.

Choosing one of six battle terrains, the gamer faces off against his opponent with the simple objective of annihilating the enemy's headquarters. Of course, the opponent has the exact same objective, and there is no such thing as a "tie" in war. Battles are fought until a victor is found. Using six types of attack ordinance, in cooperation with supply vehicles and air support, the player attempts to achieve his goal. Each unit must be moved, aimed and fired individually, and within a certain time frame. Manipulation of the units is simplified by using the mouse to point and click their actions.

Aiming for attack is totally manual, the firing unit's gun must be pointed at the target before firing. Since the offensive fire travels only in a straight line, accuracy is assured if the target lies on the horizontal, vertical or diagonal axis from the firing unit. Obstructions such as trees, walls, and buildings cannot be destroyed (unless obstructed mode is turned off). Each hit on a unit causes damage, until the unit has sustained enough to be declared destroyed and is removed from the field of play. Each unit carries a certain amount of ammo and fuel, and must be re-supplied by supply vehicles to continue their fight. A tank without ammo is a sitting target, so planning re-supply activities is crucial to an effective offensive. Gameplay remains mostly intuitive in all areas except the supply factor.

OC2's interface divides the screen into two sections. The top 2/3 of the screen is the battlefield map, while the lower section is the control panel. The battlefield map displays the immediate area around the selected unit, and only map areas containing a player's unit can be viewed (except for air support reconnaissance). The control panel of the lower section is comprised of five distinct areas providing information and game controls. The ordnance status table provides information on the selected unit, while the technical grid is a small view of the entire game area with the player's units and known enemy positions. The remaining areas are the ordnance controls, the multiplayer message lines, the game turn and connect timers. Everything the player needs to know is found in the control panel.

For DOS/Windows (via DOSBox) [*Please review compatibility/platform sections in 'What You Get']


This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.


All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.


Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.


Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.


Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.


  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.
