Eldon from Denkiphile: "The Company of Heroes franchise holds a very special place in my heart. Back when World War 2 first-person shooters flooded the market, the only thing I played at the time was Counter-Strike 1.6, Warcraft 3, and Call of Duty 2, so the concept of a World War 2 RTS was mindblowing for me. I ended up dumping countless hours into the first Company of Heroes, and all I did was play the single-player campaign and matches against the AI where I would play maps with chokepoints and spam defenses and artillery. Keep in mind this was all done while using a computer that required me to turn down specific settings in the user configuration file for Counter-Strike: Source. Playing Company of Heroes 2 brought back fond memories of my 13 year old self who spent an eternity immersed in the gameplay of Company of Heroes."
