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.

good ideas but the russian ai sometimes doesnt play well, needs to be fixed

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

nicely done

+++Before anyone gives **** for the score (I know you will) this is a judgement of the 2.10 release which is focused on the Ostheer+++

So after sometime I came and replayed this mod (I stopped around 1.2ish) with a desire to see how the Ostheer was. I left, disappointed?

Certainly some level of disappointment as about, I felt much of the same playing as the Ostheer but this could be due to what seems like bugged AI as the two standard (USSR) bots only built engineers and only tried to capture a terriory once. Though I am willing to chalk this down as nothing (I am much too familiar with crappy AI (see Blitzkrieg Dingo spam AI)), but even then the Ostheer seems a bit too standard.

When I first played this mod it had a completely new faction, one never seen before in CoH and this is why I played it until I finally stopped. The Ostheer do not invoke the same joy as when I first played as the Soviets when I first got this mod. There are only a few really new additions to the mix and the units which were added are not that amazing. The Pz.II Luch is basically an armoured Puma and the Kugelblitz is a duel barrel Ostwind.

Overall, I really don't feel like this mod hasn't advanced as much as it should. For all the new hype, most of it seems to be only the same things and that disappoints me. 4/10
