"All-told, Company of Heroes 2 is a worthy, if not excellent, heir to the franchise’s legacy." - 4/5, Games Radar Review
"It’s an enthralling example of the genre, and one that deserves a good following. There’s plenty here too, between a lengthy (though not too horribly padded out) campaign and the various multiplayer modes." - 8.5/10, NOWGamer.com
"_Company of Heroes 2 does feel right. What I’ve played perfectly captures the grim tone of war while still being an exciting and tactical RTS. _" - PCGamer.com
"This is Company of Heroes with several twists, essentially two new armies and more maps and weather effects – and that should be enough to make any fan excited." - IGN.com

If you ever played Company of Heroes 1, you will realise that the game gets a bit repetitive after awhile. Rush to expand, build mg nests, hold out for tanks. Well, not in CoH 2. CoH 2 has been re-designed to make every unit more easily killable and they revamped the commander points system too, which can be further buffed with " achievements " called bulletins. These bulletins can then chosen to give your forces a boost, up to a maximum of 3 bulletins. While not being game changing like in CoH's Nazi V1 or mass building british artillery, these bulletins often decide which way a tight battle turns.
You will find that CoH 2 is much more intense, and more often than not, find yourself at the edge of your seat as you plan, scheme and try to outwit your opponents tactically. Yes, you've read correctly. Tactically !! Unless most RTS games like C&C or even Star Craft 2, just because you have superior units does not mean that you will win.
Moving tactically, flanking and communicating with your allies are much more important and contribute to the fun.
If multiplayer isn't your cup of tea, the campaign and single player achievement missions will whet your appetite for gruesome battles and tactical battles. The AI are now much smarter, and will not hesitate to over run you with just infantry when the chances arises,
All in all, a fantastic game. Definitely a game worth getting if you are looking to invest a game for the summer or winter.
CoH2 ReviewLethal18 | July 3, 2013 | See all Lethal18's reviews »
CoH was on of my all-time favourite games and was by far the best RTS game ever. CoH2 on the other hand is different, it fine tunes the realism of war, the effects of weather is the biggest difference of the game, but i feel that not adding LAN mode to an RTS puts a hole in the soul of this franchise. Other than that, the best RTS franchise of all time and i hope they make a third (with LAN)
A good strategy gameCavalieroscuro | July 2, 2013 | See all Cavalieroscuro's reviews »
Company of Heroes 2 is a really good strategy game. You will lead the Red Army against Nazi, in a pretty long campaign. Thanks to online mode (both competitive and co-operative), Company of Heroes 2 grants hours of gameplay. The graphic is very good thanks to Essence Engine 3.0, the soundtrack is nothing special sadly.
