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.

Like many people who've been reviewing on this item about all the patches, I agree about them, but it took only an hour to download five of them and they wait was worth it. This is a great game to the additional CoH series, although the speed of the game was so slow at first, but after a few games I could not stop and write a review on Amazon. I was skeptic about the game when I had to download the patches to get online, but after they had downloaded I had figured the skirmish and campaign were included through the multiplayer. There are a lot of new features to the CoH series with this game: when you play the skrimish, you have a rank that goes up on how many games you win and it keeps your stats of wins and loses too; if you had the first game all of that stuff is already included when you install this game, for example, you get the Normandy campaign and the maps from the first title; and when you play the multiplayer they keep a track of your stats and rank just like through the skirmish stat. I would recommend this to anyone who had the first CoH and for whoever likes real-time strategy games like Age of Empires, Command & Conquer and war games. I would give this game an 'A-,' for great graphics, new features, better maps and for having some what a slow speed to play offline.

One of the shortcomings of COH is that you have no choice really as to what faction you play with in multiplayer or skirmish modes. You are either the Germans or the USA. That is the number one value of this add on to get 2 more choices to play with the Brits and the Panzer Elite. I didn't expect much more than that and you don't get much more than that.

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?

I was addicted to this game for quite awhile. I stink, but I was still addicted. It is a fun strategy-type game, putting you in an semi-omniscient god mode. It is a worthy successor to the original, as the new units are fun to use.

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.

Otherwise, enjoy.
