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.
It's a really fun mod, and I have to give it credit for being the first mod for CoH to add a complete faction to the game and as much as possible not sacrificing balanced gameplay, action, and fun.
People who review this saying it is bad because it isn't realistic like other mods don't understand the point of the mod. The mod wasn't made to be realistic or historically accurate. It was made to add a new faction for players to enjoy alongside the existing factions, without modifying the already existing factions for balanced fast-paced gameplay.
I'm not rating it perfect because there are some hiccups and glitches, as well as extremely frustrating AI. At times I have seen the AI use tactics they never used before and displaying more intelligence, but other times, it seems like they have an unfair advantage. It's like they build faster than you do and they pump out tons of units(mostly vehicles) and overwhelm you.
I can't wait for Ostheer :P
This mod is as close to perfection as you can get. Expanding the roster to 6 factions is just awesome.
The Russians are a total joy to play, and feel uniquely balanced for the experience.
The Ostheer are also starting to grow on me too; it's just strange we have so many German factions. It's representative of the setting so I can't argue. Still, having an Italian faction or Japanese Faction would be interesting too. What's here is MORE than impressive, and I am NOT saying I'm either capable nor willing to tackle such a task myself. Just voicing my opinion on having so many German factions.
That strange interlude aside, this mod is very impressive. It was awesome with even just the Russians being added. The recently added Ostheer are just icing on the cake.
everything is good in the mod except the katyusha rockets it's kinda of unprofessional job for the texture, and the rockets does not launched vertically so it hits everything in it's way even friendly targets so if you fix this bug you'll have the perfect mod
The mod itself is great. The reason why I'm not giving 10/10 is because after you download the mod (1.9 GB), you must download the compatabilty patch. Whoever made this mod should've make it all into 1 download(the mod and the patch) instead of making it difficult(extracting the files) and downloading twice
