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.Read more ›
The game is based on reality, it is history so they can't just make things up as they go along. Tech improvements and upgrades are historically based. There is no navy and really no air force so this is a ground based strategy game. As a vet of RTS games going back to 1997 i can say that COH provides the best strategy and team work and there are no all everything defensive structures or offensive units. No super weapons either.
This game is an interesting change for fans of Command and conquer, Age of empires or other top RTS games. Opposing fronts just ads to the game experience.
The upgrade patches are a pain and OF will make you do that all over again. Still it is worth it. For variety and fun there are many interesting mods that add new elements to the game while still allowing you to play the original.
There are very very few people who have given this game any time at all who can honestly say they don't like it. A homerun all the way so why not expand it with opposing fronts?
The big problem for me is that I have networked my and my wife's computers at home through a router. This game's multiplayer mode will simply not work online if you are trying to connect to it through a router. And this little tidbit of info is nowhere to be found. I finally did connect to someone in multiplayer mode who knew about this and was kind enough to inform me.
I have no idea why this is so, but more to the point, there is no reason why this should be so. This is supposedly a known problem with the game, and it seems like they could issue a patch to fix this. But there hasn't been one.
Obviously, this is fixable by disconnecting the computer from the router and connecting directly to the internet without it. But that's annoying, and then I'll forget to reconnect the router and get hell for it from my wife who hasn't a clue except that she knows that she can't get online.

I've always been a big fan of strategy games. This is, no doubt, one of the best strategy hate games I've ever played.Published 10 months ago by Jayid Alam
This game has a very realistic feel to it, not because of its historical similarity but its feel it’s so detailed to the smallest piece of debris on the environment around you. Read morePublished 12 months ago by DAVID SOLIS
