4.0 out of 5 stars Great Game with the Worst Patching Scheme I've Seen January 3, 2008
By J. Chen
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
First of all, there are a lot to like about the CoH series. The graphics, the physics and the unit strategy elements of the CoH series of games are by far among the best in the RTS games I have played, and I have played RTS games for almost 20 years starting from a very young age. This series of games present campaigns in managable segments and load them with tons of strategic elements to make them fun and refreshing. The opposing fronts game adds two more armies: Britsh 3rd Army and the German Panther Elite to which you can command (in addition to the original CoH's US Army's 101 air born able company and the German troops).
My interest in the WWII history made this game even more fascinating to me personally as I can engage my computer units in some historically signifcant WWII campaigns. The game does a good job of including bits of actual WWII history to further engage the players. The representation of the units and equipment is also quite authentic, true to the real life. However, this can be somewhat problematic as the Panther Elite troops tend to be very strong (true to real life). In a small skirmish setting, this in-balance leads to some game play problems, as in a multiplayer game, a player commanding Panther Elite units can quite easily over power other players due to the high fire power and the great mobility of the Panther Elite units.
Panther Elite units are heavily armored, fast moving, and the basic grenadier units are good in both fighting and vehicle repair. The Panther Elite also has the best troop carriers, best armor protection and incredible mobility and mobile fire support to provide fast recharge to mobile units. This make the Panther Elite a force that is very difficult to defend against in games against actual human players.

5.0 out of 5 stars A welcome addition to a great RTS December 11, 2009
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I see a lot of review saying how terrible it is to patch the game, but I bought it a year or so after its release and have had no problems. I would recommend buying it on steam, because it patches automatically with relatively little fuss (though I still had to nudge it a few times).

That aside, I think the two new factions you can play as adds a great new dimension to the gameplay. The british are fun as they are extremely mobile: you can move all your headquarter operations right to the gates of your enemy if you so desire. They are much more specialized, in that you can focus much more heavily on tanks or artillery tactics, with some of the best capabilities in the game for either of those.

The panzer elite are a little harder to get used to, but also a great payoff once you do. They are great at anti-tank maneuvering especially, and their hetzer tanks are probably the toughest units in the game to kill.

There are many more sublte alterations to the gameplay for each faction that makes it new and exciting to play all over again. All in all, a solid expansion offering more units and factions that offer vastly different gameplay opportunities to an already wonderful game.

1.0 out of 5 stars Patches...Patches...More Patches June 18, 2009
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I usually disregard Amazon reviews of video games because they always seem overly negative and repetitive about bugs I never find in the game... that is not the case with COH OF. I played the first COH by disconnecting my internet whenever I played the game in order to avoide the online fiasco; however, this time I decided I wanted to play the game online(I did try my hand at disconnecting my internet to skip to single-player and the game read: "No Validated media" or something along those lines, so I thought I had no choice but to go through the online madness.)

Essentially, I started out by not being able to get past the install menu. After scanning through forums, I found out you had to turn off user account control(computer protection measure) and go through a process of right clicking on the icon, clicking explore, going into files bla bla bla... basically, it was much harder than it should be to install a game. Anyway, I got to the first page and it requried a patch. I clicked to download the patch... 3 hours later and with the patch harldy at half-way, I went to the internet to find a more effective method. After a long search through forums, I found an employee from relic that explicitly recommended file planet(a site that has nothing to do with relic)... So I went through the meticulous process of downloading all the patches from fileplanet(which requried me to install a download manager unique to the site) and I canceled the patch I had downloaded straight from the game(for some reason it only goes 1 kb/s when you click it on the game... employees on forums were saying you need to turn off your fire wall[I did this later with little avail])

Anyway, I got a bunch of versions and thought I was done... to find out that I had to apply it to the game.

1.0 out of 5 stars What a buggy POS this is.... December 11, 2007
By Jeff
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have never seen a more buggy game. Patch after patch after patch. On # 4 now and it won't launch. Finally had it working after extensive emails to customer suupport then, today, it decided it needed another 112MB patch. After downloading it, it supposedly patched but on relaunch still wants the patch. ARRRGGHHH! Who is writing this crappy code and who is checking it? I just want to come home from work and play a little game...instead its sheer frustration.
I understand their desire for copyright protection, but their requirements for you to jump through so many hoops is ridiculous. THQ you should be ashamed....
