Much of the same—which is good

TheBrowncoat | July 7, 2013 | Review of Company of Heroes 2

If you're looking for a huge gap between the original award winning RTS and its sequel, you're going to be disappointed. If you're excited to play a lot of the same mechanics with new units and factions then you'll be very happy.

The game looks, sounds and feels stunning with intense multiplayer action. The campaign is a little bland but the Theater of War section is addictive. There's co-op challnges, solo challenges and specific 1941 AI battles—obviously there's some room for DLC down the road.

It looks like they may be setting up a bit of a cash grab with an in game store, but as long as the DLC is meaningful but not balance breaking I'll be happy.

If you were a fan of the first, it's a must buy. If the original didn't impress you may want to skip on ahead.
