Top 50 Title:
"The transformation from a idyllic little town into a heap of crushed buildings and burned out husks of vehicles can be shocking. Seeing and hearing major explosions that cause bodies (and bits of bodies) to fly across the screen along with rubble from a nearby building simply puts you more into the battle than any RTS in memory." - IGN.com
"Technically remarkable and features some novel twists that make it unique among real-time strategy games. Yet while it's easy to get into, it's not just difficult to master but also rather difficult to manage, partly because the game does such a good job of evoking the sheer chaos of frontline WWII battles." - Gamespot.com

An older game from the mid 2000's with graphics that feel a bit dated but still offer a great sense of enjoyment. The sounds in this game are decent and offer the quality expected of a game made in 06. The story is great and thrusts you forward with a sense of accomplishment. AI will keep you on your toes in most skirmishes. Buy on sale and you wont have any regrets.
Decent game but with an extreme difficulty curveBlockAgent | Aug. 8, 2014 | See all BlockAgent's reviews »
Company of Heroes is a decent RTS game with good graphics and pretty good gameplay. It is very polished and well put together as I never saw any glitches during my play through. This game does however have an extreme difficulty curve. The first 2 to 3 missions are challenging, but manageable. The 4th mission and on though, are very difficult, even on the easiest settings. I found myself being obliterated over and over again. So if you like very challenging RTS games, pick this one up, you will love it. But if you like RTS games, but are not an absolute pro, you may have trouble progressing very far into this one.

Company of heroes is a RTS based on World War II which offers excellent graphics (for the year it came out), good gameplay, realistic ambience, many variety of units and machines, many types of scenarios, very good effects on the shots and explosions, good soundtrack and 6 campaigns of long duration, which will put us in the perspective of the different factions who fought in western europe. It is a game made with a lot of dedication, which will be remembered in gaming history as one of the best RTS ever made.
The best strategy RTS game of Second World War .AugPL | May 17, 2014 | See all AugPL's reviews »
I bought it in the premiere edition and have never regretted . This game has everything ,good graphic (2006-2008) ,interesting story ,very good models of tanks, soldiers ,beautiful maps forcing a rethink of the strategy (for example Sheldt) and the best community in multiplayer. In multiplayer I spent many hours, days, or even weeks together with my clan. This game is definitely worth buying ,especially in GreenManGaming. As for me, this game is the best strategy in my "gaming life" ,and mods, adding dozens of hours of fun . Buy it today!

While I am definitely not a person who is remotely good at strategy games (this game included). To say I do not enjoy this game would be a lie. This game allows for enough challenge and re playability just through the skirmish matches you can play. I also have not been able to finish the campaign, aside from a few missions, but even so the gameplay is still amusing. Whether a fan of RTS's or WW2, this is a definite must buy.
