A great multiplayer title

Mithanlas | Aug. 6, 2013 | Review of Company of Heroes 2

Company of Heroes 2 is extremely faithful to the first part of the franchise and old players will feel right at home. The mechanics such as cover are largely unchanged except that winter and true fog of war bring something new to the table. Make no mistake, even though the campaign is decent and the new Theater of War mode is plenty of fun, CoH 2 is at its core 100% multiplayer oriented. As of august the balance between the game's two factions is okay, even though there's definitely more room for tweaking.

Some minor gripes: aesthetically the game hasn't evolved that much over the years, but then again CoH has always looked rather impressive for a strategy game. Also, the UI takes far too much space during gameplay, and those used to tweaking the UI elements to their liking will find no such luxuries here.
