Moves the battle away from the common Western Front focus of World War II and refocuses on some of history’s most brutal and devastating conflicts on the Eastern Front, challenging players to take command of the iconic Red Army and repel the Nazi invaders from the very gates of Moscow.
Many of the stuff has been done in the past, nothing is new in this game.
Other games from other companies does better, the best example: "Faces of War" and "Men Of War", example they worked with the ice effect long ago and much better and realistic than in this game.
This game not superated the first and the story, (plus the mods does a much better work for save the first game).
I will reconize something and I would liked more focus: the story, it would be better if not added too many propaganda and those things about policies.
I was close to buy it original, I´m glad I tested a pirate version.
What else...¡ Ah, yes... When comes WH40k: DoW3?
Filled with historical innacuracies and borders on Nazi sympathy. Also, the gameplay was considerably dumbed down from the first game, there are less units, maps are smaller and more restricted, badly implemented mechanics, poor optimization, etc.
If you're truly interested in the Eastern Front, I fully recommend the Eastern Front mod for the first Company of Heroes.
dear coh2 scriptwriters, i spit in your face, nazi scum. you desecrated memory of true heroes, soviet soldiers who gave their lives to save the world from fascism, making them look like criminals, cowards, traitors and murderers, in comparison with them even nazi' SS and hitler himself are archetype of kindness and friendliness.
yes, i'm pretty sure that this wasn't random stuff, random at all, this is defenitely paid provocation to create such image of russian soldiers. but ok, choke on your money, history depends on who tells it. all i can say that there is no word of truth, game is filled with nazi propaganda, russophobia, false facts and accents, while the game is claimed to be "historically accurate". ********.
what about game itself, i can only say, that this is degenerated coh1, but with enhanced graphics. not worth buying it, 1/10
Why i have to spend more money on DLCs than on the game itself? there is a big difference between expansions with new features (good COH1 strategy)and a stupid game divided on microscopic parts, each one costing too much for the little improvement it gives... i´m not going to pay for something the game should include from the begginning. NO MODDING POSSIBILITY? definitely, COH1 was way better than COH2...
