It's difficult to give a note to the Western Front Armies. If the player is discovering the series with this stand-alone he'll find here a rich multiplayer mode and two quite interesting factions to play, and for who already have the basic game they'll will pay € 20 for 2 factions and 8 maps. Although this is outrageous, it would still have been good manners to offer 2 different rates. In short, you weigh the pros and cons depending on your case, but rest assured about the quality of the content. Pros: *The high mobility of the U.S. Army. *The German defensive mesh. *8 new interesting maps *New types of environments *Full access to multiplayer modes for 20 €. Cons: *Too expensive for those who already have the basic game.

I love this fantastic strategy game in real time, it first part also i loved and 10 years after launch I can remember some moments playing to this one DLC. Maybe the DLC have a few bugs in the multiplayer, and also have very few units but this is no problem as it is a great game, and it gameplay is awesome. Same that the first part you can handles a platoon of soldiers consisting of a single unit; these units can gain experience of struggle, to level up and the same with vehicles, as Tanks or Half-tracks. Throughout the campaign we are Allies of the West Army, And Axis West Army (EEUU and Germany), we will participate in amazing and fierce battles in western Europe, with this DLC we will forget the Eastern Front of original game. The online game now is much better because it received a update some few day ago. It is a great game despite being the continuity of the first well, However is 100% recommended.
