Close Combat: First to Fight is a modern military first-person shooter. The player leads a marine fireteam in a fictional campaign taking place in Beirut, Lebanon. At certain times in the single player game, it's possible to call in mortar strikes and air strikes. Enemies have a psych-model similar to what is in the classic RTS Close Combat series, which causes them to hunker down, or even flee when they take enough fire.

The game features four player co-op through the entire single player campaign, as well as multiplayer deathmatch. Available weapons are: M16A4, M203 Grenade Launcher, M249 SAW, M590 Shotgun, M67 Frag Grenade, M8HC Smoke Grenade, AK-74, SVD Sniper Rifle, M1911 Pistol, RPG-7, and RPK.
