Company of Heroes 2 Pixel Judge review

Pixel Judge: "There is a saying amongst geeks that the sequel is commonly the peak of a series, in terms of quality and polish, as well as showcasing the essence of what makes the series great. This applies to all walks of geekdom, be it movies or, more importantly, videogames. This is a pretty common rule, which brings us then to the case of Company of Heroes, a Real-Time Strategy game developed by Relic Entertainment under the now-defunct THQ in 2004. It smashed its way into the industry, guns blazing, clinching a slew of awards as well as the title of Highest-Rated RTS of All Time. Its innovative gameplay coupled with intense atmosphere and well-developed design choices, catapulted it into the gaming Hall of Fame, where it influences RTS games to this very day. In fact, my very first review on Pixel Judge was for the original game, where I gave it a stellar score as well as a glowing recommendation. And now, the sequel is out - a turn of events that awakens both excitement and trepidation for the fans of the original. How does it fare? Does it take the series to even greater heights? Or does it crash and burn? Let's find out." (Company of Heroes 2, PC) 4.5/5
