Eastern Front is a free mod for Company of Heroes. Following the ethos of mimicking a Relic Entertainment expansion pack, Eastern Front has succeeded in adding two full new factions, the Soviet Red Army and the German Ostheer, packed with unique and exciting units to the existing armies - a feat never before achieved in the Company of Heroes world.
This is a very good mod but it does have some problems. This is proberly because it is not finished yet.
Very fun, Although I feel it's still a lil unbalanced
its agood mod but the damage system isnt not so good (i dont like vanilla)
Eastern Front adds an entirely new faction. That is something new and a huge accomplishment! I always wanted a Soviet team in COH. Also, they managed to balance it out evenly with the other factions so they are not sUper ULTRA-PWNAGE 1337 AWESOMENOSS unstoppable, but then again, they are not too weak. This was pretty good. However, the mod keeps alot of the original elements. Even the original penetration system. Some new, realistic eastern front skins for the Germans would have been nice too. Plus I send in two T-34s, a SU-100 and a JS-2 to the german base. A panzer and a panther take out the JS-2, the SU and damages the T-34s. They retreat but get killed off by a stug. I think the Soviet tanks should get a buff, but all-in-all, its a good mod that will please many people.
High units detail, more realistic combat, and of course more unique and powerful units. Not to mention it compatible with Tales of Valor factions.
I think this mod is well done, and there was alot of hard work put into this, but it is not refined at all yet. First off, the soviet structures still copy the Allied and German structures, when they are obviously capable of editing the models. Second off, the Soviet faction should be speaking English, if they want it to be more like a "Relic faction". Finally, some of the sounds and models are not good. One of the soviet husks is screwed up, and is a completely different color, and some of the soviet rifle noises are much louder and much lower quality than the allied ones. I also come across alot of FPS lag issues, and the mod is not stable, crashing often for me. Nevertheless, it is still an incredible mod, although I do feel like the Soviets are a bit OP.
This is the best mod ever, adds great new fractions the soviets and ostheer, which good units, thanks
Now, this mod isn't without its flaws. But then again, there are fully fledged, multi-million dollar games with far more flaws.
When seeking to expand upon the base game of Company of Heroes, there are a variety of total change mods that drastically alter the gameplay and turn the experience into something completely new - the ultra high speed modern battlefields of Modern Combat and the hellish, uber-realistic slog of Blitzkrieg come to mind.
But it's important not to lose sight of the masterpiece that is vanilla Company of Heroes - the sheer fun and competitiveness. And this mod does a fantastic job of keeping that in sight.
The addition of two fully fledged, totally unique factions to the base game is quite an achievement. I wasn't even sure it was possible to alter the UI enough to be able to select an additional Axis and Allied faction, but I guess anything is possible.
The new factions are satisfying, unique, and balanced - perhaps with slight Soviet bias, but that would be understandable. I actually enjoyed the Ostheer the most - the Elite Troops doctrine allows for some particularly rewarding Tiger spam. Yeah, Tiger spam. Unit caps are for sissies.
This mod also adds some fantastic new features to the base game. Unlimited Popcap mode is a no-brainer, and the new reward units really help. With the Comet tank, allies finally have a proper response to the likes of the Panther. The 105mm Sherman is perfect for dealing with nasty Panzer Elite blobs. The Jagdtiger is self explanatory (Think a Jagdpanther crossed with a King Tiger and mixed with a pinch of nightmares) - so are, um, Snowman Grenadiers (Just Grenadiers and nightmares).
Definitely the best CoH mod of all time, and certainly one of the best mods on ModDB. Hopefully it will shake the current phase of dormancy it seems to be going through, and the planned additions will come to fruition.
Until then, excellent work, Comrades!
very good mod, now with the new update has better textures soldiers, tanks, etc., new skills, in addition to added to russia, type of support, Romania, Italy, Hungary
I don't have much else to add to what the other good reviews have to say, I largely agree with them. I just really enjoy the mod, I have a really hard time going back to vCoH after playing it, especially when I have other people to play with. The only real problem is the exposure and accessibility to the most recent builds at the time that I write this.
