WTMG's Thomas Medina: "Company of Heroes 3 won me over. I will admit I went in expecting to hate it. Instead I can see why this franchise is spoken so highly of. The cover system is absolutely fantastic and just works as described. The level of destruction and interactability with the environment is something every RTS should have. It launched with two full campaigns as well, even if I much prefer the mission based one to the Total War knockoff. The biggest issue I have with the game is how unbalanced and limited the Multiplayer feels in its current state. There’s also a total lack of Multiplayer progression, which feels like a weird omission for an RTS title. Still, there’s nothing broken here that can’t be fixed, and while I’m really getting tired of playing unfinished games, at least the foundation here is incredibly solid and fun."
Took a punt on it as I hadn’t played the series in years and I never got massively into it purely because there were so many great games at the time or spent my time out at the pub.
Really enjoying getting back into it and it seems great so far. Hesitant to pay the £27 asking price as that’s a bit close to what I expect PC games RRP to be. Especially with its mixed reception but glad I did, so far.
I can definitely see why people would be annoyed at paying £60 for it though.
