Review: Company of Heroes 2 (New Gamer Nation)

Real Time Strategy enthusiasts have had to wait seven years between the release of Relic‘s original Company of Heroes and its sequel. If this were reflected in the game’s setting, players would now be commanding American forces in Korea against the Communist scourge. Instead, Relic Entertainment has brought their story back in time to 1941 and Operation Barbarossa; the German invasion of Russia. The experience will be familiar for anyone who played the original installment, but it still presents a refreshing alternative to most modern RTS conventions. Company of Heroes 2 is a mixture of the successes of its predecessor and the limited ambitions of its designer. It is by-and-large a solid but cautious success. (Company of Heroes 2, PC) 8.5/10
