Summary: Following last year's release of the single-player expansion Ardennes Assault , developer Relic Entertainment expands Company of Heroes 2 again with the standalone multiplayer expansion of The British Forces.
Excerpt: One thing I really enjoy about gaming is that you get to dive into a different reality. Some of those realities are based on actual history, and because I’m a sucker for World War II I really enjoy it when developers use this setting in games, which is why I was so excited about Company of Heroes 2.
Pros: : Really good weather system; Great visuals; Amazing historical accuracy
Cons: : Needs a beefy machine to run; Can be harsh on beginners
Excerpt: The Eastern Front of World War II really does sum up everything that's bad in the world of online gaming. General Guderian's development of Blitzkrieg tactics, the massing of mobile armour to punch a hole through enemy defences, was the original tank rush, and the Russian human wave assault strategy...
Pros: Sounds brilliant, Plays like it should, Plenty to keep you going
Cons: Snow not all that great, Storys not amazing, Graphically adequate
Company of Heroes 2: The Western Front Armies Review
24 June 2014
Conclusion: Regardless of whether it’s perfectly balanced at launch, Relic has shown its dedication to listening to the community with subsequent updates, and The Western Front Armies is a worthy addition to any multiplayer-loving Company of Heroes 2 player’s war chest.
Excerpt: Americans love World War II–our version of it, anyways. We delight in watching movies and television shows depicting honest farmboys picking up their rifles and storming across the Atlantic to solve all of Europe’s Nazi-related problems.
Pros: Refines the excellent Company of Heroes formula, Soviets are distinct from previous Company of Heroes factions, Excellent improvements to multiplayer, Twitch.tv integration and replays mean newbies can learn from better players
Cons: Lack of WASD Camera controls, Some of the major battles of WWII’s Eastern Front are suspiciously absent, Escort mission in campaign is really frustrating.
Conclusion: While this point may ultimately prove to be a non-issue, there are a couple of odd glitches at play in an otherwise honed gameplay experience. Using hotkeys to jump between units consistently results in weird bouncing objects, and the Havok physics engine occasionally fails in hilarious ways.
Summary: Embora não revolucione o gênero RTS da mesma forma que seu antecessor, Company of Heroes 2 é obrigatório para qualquer fã do estilo. Aprimorando quase todos os pontos vistos em seu antecessor, o game oferece uma experiência envolvente que deixa aquela sensação de “quero mais” mesmo após você passar...
Company of Heroes 2: The British Forces - Anmeldelse
1 September 2015
Conclusion: British Forces er ikke revolutionerende. Men fans vil elske det. Muligheden for (igen) at spille de britiske styrker (som det var muligt i Company of Heroes 1) er længe ventet af CoH spillere. RT
Pros: Tilføjer flere lag til en i forvejen dyb strategisk og taktisk oplevelse, Et meget generøst tilbud for RTS-spillere
Cons: Har fortsat en meget stejl læringskurve (hvis det er her man vælger at starte med serien)., Svært i skrivende stund at mærke præcist hvilke balancemæssige udfordringer, der kan ligge mellem fraktionerne i spillet
