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.
Finally got around to playing this.
Great atmosphere, but that's really all this had.
The zombies were not at all threatening, and they only legitimately scared me once and that was when they first popped up.
The only other highlight of me playing this was the last sequence. It was an extremely large and bizarre difficulty jump and I very-much do not look forward to stuff like that in the future parts. Not saying the fighting was bad, but it was just the ridiculous difficulty. The majority of the time spent on this was on that last part. It was extremely frustrating.
I do like where the story is going, though. I look forward to that at least.
All-in-all, this is definitely worth playing, if you can excuse that difficult jump (I BARELY can). But it certainly needs more polish and probably some balance tuning.
The graphics are way behind and the animations are strange.
The missions are stupid and so easy to **** up it hurts.
After you **** up, you would Imagine you could just free-roam. Wrong. The game is too buggy for that.
And the combat... Just crouch and nothing will attack you. Idiocy.
And the developers are the worst part about this pile of horse ****- they censor all bad reviews, claiming 'copyright infringement'. **** you. If someone doesn't like your game - and there are a lot of people that don't- take their critique and fix your damn broken game instead of attempting to silence the hate. It won't work.
In conclusion: I just hope that you never make another game again. Ever.
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...
