The Great War is a modification for Company of Heroes meant to bring the war two decades earlier. This mod focuses on the later years of the First World War. Currently the two teams will be the British Expeditionary Force against the German Empire, however with time the team will try and bring some more nations in, such as France and Austria-Hungary. This mod will focus or realism but keep the game balanced enough to make it enjoyable. Things to look for in the mod are the famous artillery strikes and the infamous gas attacks. Trenches will provide vital cover for infantry while tanks will roll over the battlefield and instil fear into the enemy troops.
An impressively stable and bug free release of an equally impressive mod that nails most if not everything i sets out to do, from the new thrench system to the gas attacks.
Even the two factions(as of now) seems to be fairly well balance between eachother, allthough the enemys damn Mortar allways seems to outreach mine, this could be completely imaginated from my part of course.
The new tanks are also slow sluggish and deadly, wich is very spot on, oh and the Tank models are also very well done.
The same can also be said about the models for the various infantry and support units on both factions, and the new threnches is also very nice and well suited for me as a defensive player.
Overall a very promising start from a Mod and Mod team i wish all the best.
The idea is awesome. Also the mod is:you will feel like you are playng a new game. Nice gameplay and textures.
It would me a 10/10 if it was so unbalanced, let me explain:
AI will almost alway try to push into your land with mortar and artyllery spam.
THE TROUBLE IS THAT THEY HAVE SUCCES WHEN DOING THIS. Arty was made insanely OP and able to destroy everything. Dont say to me that i should use mortars or snipers, because i did not install this to play spamming.
I hope that TGW developers take this as a sane but angry review, Im angry because the cannon-mortar spam actually does not allow me to play this AWESOME mod on wich i would spen my money into.So i hope the developers take in consideration a better re-balance.
I seldom use my account on moddb, but I had to for this mod, its ******* amazing.
The revamped damage modifiers for all weapons and the ability to construct long trenches (like walls in age of empires) manned by simple, and not overdone, infantry platoons make the defensive aspect of ww1 come alive.
Tanks are the slow and lumbering beasts that they once were and along with mortars and artillery, the only effective way to break a defensive line.
I warmly recommend this mod to you peasants.
COH has had a few excellent mods and this one takes the cake as the best one of them all. This mod took years of effort and it shows as almost every unit and doctrine show amazing levels of detail. I am a big fan of the grand offensive mode and its ability of creating huge battlefields that take long amounts of time to resolve, giving it a WW1 feel to it. The only problem I have with the mod is the trench system can give problem to my units pathfinding, this has led to my units dying a bunch of time. Besides that little problem, this mod is easily the best one that a COH owner can download.
Awesome mod...one of the best i ever play ! World War one games are really really rare...and this one combine perfectly Fun with a high respect of history ! Very beautiful models, uniforms, tanks, gas effects and masks EVERYTHING is just perfect .
