Enjoyable but still comes up a bit short

The little orphan brother of the CoH2 mission packs. The base game has nothing in the way of campaign missions for the Wehrmacht faction, which was a disappointing omission. At least the Case Blue DLC does its best to make amends for that, even if it could afford to have a bit more to offer. It's a pretty light in the content department, with only 5 missions to choose from, which isn't really a lot. You get a little bit of everything, at least, from challenge maps to new skirmish missions. The two challenge maps in particular are fun, if not particularly inspired. Fans of the game who are looking to expand the scope of the campaign should be sure to pick this up, but be aware that it doesn't bring particularly much new to the table.

Relive the winter offensive

Fall Blau or Case Blue was the code name of German offensive on oil-rich Caucasus area. This expansion for Company of Heroes 2 adds a selection of scenarios based on battles of this offensive. Some of them are co-operative, like the Voronezh battle, some are intended for solo play, like the 'Tiger Ace' scenario taking place near Volga, and another one from the Stalingrad area - 'Destroy a Convoy'. Then there are two AI battles as well, expanding the replayability of this expansion. I think for a WW2 strategy gamer this expansion is a must-have, especially if they're interested in the Eastern theatre, but I doubt it could be any different now after playing the excellent Company of Heroes 2 game.
