Company Of Heroes 2: A new angle on an old war | EDGE

EDGE: "Company Of Heroes 2’s scraps feel wonderfully desperate, and the shifting battle lines give each contest its own narrative. The fight for an icy river crossing can escalate to a horrifying meat grinder in minutes, and there’s a kernel of chance at the heart of each encounter that allows the smallest squads to hold out just a bit longer than you’d expect, turning humble engineers into heroes. Senior games designer Matthew Berger lists this element of chance as one of the 'quirks and peculiarities' of the series. In a genre awash with nostalgia, that shock of peculiarity is even more welcome." (Company of Heroes 2, PC)
