Gamesradar- Company of Heroes 2 Review

GR:World War II is without a doubt one of the most dramatic chapters of human history, and it’s easy to see why the conflict has been the fodder for cheap, emotionally manipulative stories of bravado and sacrifice. Unfortunately, Company of Heroes 2 doesn’t do much to dispel that pervasive stereotype, hitting hard with overwrought and heavy-handed themes delivered by poorly written and clichéd exposition and even worse voice-acting. Thankfully, Company of Heroes 2 more than makes up for its ham-fisted narrative with excellent environmentally driven, tactical play that consistently reinforces the genuine desperation of the Soviet forces as they repelled the largest invasion in the history of warfare. (Company of Heroes 2, PC) 4/5
