Company of Heroes 2 is the sequel to one of the greatest RTS games of all time. This time around it's the Eastern front of World War II that the game focuses on. As the Soviet army, you must fight your way to Germany and get through the land which is frozen by the harsh Winter. As a matter of fact, cold is a game mechanic here. Your units (and your foe's units too) can freeze to death! Your tanks and vehicles can even fall through the ice! This sequel also use a new line of sight system that permits a more interesting approach of ambushes. However, the game is a bit unbalanced. Beware the flamethrowers. These are deadly! The game looks really good and runs perfectly. Company of Heroes 2 is a good successor to its ancestor.
