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.

For those who know what Company of Heroes is, I will just review what the Eastern Front mods does.
Overview: This mods adds the Soviet Union and soon the Ostheer, or the East Germany Army, to the Company of heroes game. You can still play the other factions, so there isn't a need to panic about not being able to play the Us or the Wermacht.
Gameplay: Playing as the Soviets can be both fun and difficult. You begin the game with no engineers, and upgrades cost both fuel and ammo, so you can do what every Axis player does and vet up very quickly. once you get the core mechanics of the Soviet down (such as deteriorating ammo income due to vehicles) the doctrines are well thought of and interesting. Call in a squadron of Il-2 CAS planes to kill German tanks, call upon the Russian artillery divisions using the God Of War, or call in the very power ISU-152.
Graphics: Since this is a CoH games, the graphics are very good, though the soviet Characters can looks a bit under detail at times.
Noise: The explosions are good, the tanks make their own unique noise, and the Russians speak Russian.

Final Opinion: This mod is a must download for any CoH fanatic, however, if you do want the Soviets in your CoH games, check out the Blitzkrieg Mod, which is just as fun.

The Eastern Front is a good theme for a CoH mod

I like playing like USSR but, they are to unbalanced at the start at the game.
When Panzer Elite and Whermacht spams me with Panzer VI and Stug VI... i have only some few conscripts running around and literary are getting shot to pieces. Maybe you should try to balance the start phase by example making a new armory (Light Armor/ Armored cars). In the Light Armory you can maybe try to have some kind of light tanks example T24...

The T34 (both) is very effective, and perfectly balanced against the medium Stug VI and Panzer VI... SU-100 is very good, but i missed the machine gun on top...

The USSR heavy tank is good, but the KV-1 was a little weak. KV2 should be added fast...

I will try to review the mod again when the Eastern German army comes, a silent applause for your hard working mod team ;D

Rating 10/10!!!

Come on folks they deserve more fans!

adding a completely new faction is challenging, and actually making it successfulness is better
