Company Of Heroes is one of my personal favourite RTS games. The sheer quality and responsiveness of control comes only second to the brilliant immersion. Being able to even control if you want your tanks to reverse to safety to avoid exposing their vulnerable rear armour adds whole new layers to the strategy, with Machine Gun posts having a limited firing arc, the Flak Shield on Field Guns only protecting the crew from small arms fire coming from the front, etc means that the game has whole new levels of intricacies and mechanics to learn.
If you like anything even REMOTELY RTS or WW2 related, you NEED this game.
Explosively Idiotic funIzunundara | Aug. 27, 2013 | Review of Magicka
This game is quite possibly one of the greatest ways to blow away entire evenings with a couple of friends over a few drinks. The hilarity inherent to unfriendly fire only escalates when lightning storms, meteors, showers of icicles and blasts of flames begin to erupt from a friend saying "I wonder what would happen if I put four fire elements on a rock..."
Death is not the end, for your allies can quickly resurrect you very easily (provided they don't accidentally electrocute themselves in the attempt), meaning that accidents will be common, but not troubling in any way. The sheer depth of the spell casting system is fantastic, with so many different combinations thought out and implemented. Blasts of steam, electrified water cannons, miniature volcanoes, or even a series of reflective shields so that you can create your own deadly disco of lasers, this game has it all.
