I bought it, it's fun. I have it, Operation Star and Mius Front, as well as Steel Armor, which is more a tank sim, ala the old M1 Tank Platoon, all Graviteam titles. As I have not played CMX2 I can't give you a comparison. RTS, of course. You plot orders, but you can't micromanage to the degree you can in CMx2 from what I have read. Gotta get ready for work, will try to detail more later.
