Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts

Game Over Online
4 August 2008
  • Excerpt: This is going to perhaps be the quickest videogame review I’ve ever written. It’s an easy one, because Relic has made themselves a very run-of-the-mill “expansion” pack (the reason that I put expansion in quotes I’ll cover in just a moment) for Company of Heroes, their outstanding RTS of two years ago. New playable factions? Check. New single player campaigns? Check. It forges little new ground, though I would argue that it didn’t need to.

  • Excerpt: Company of Heroes was one of the best, if not the best, strategy games of 2006, making it a tough act for Opposing Fronts to follow. In spite of this it manages to hold its own, delivering some exciting new gameplay without disrupting what made the original game so much fun to play.

  • Excerpt: Though "stand alone expansion pack" is something of an oxymoron, Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts nonetheless expands on the original Company of Heroes to great effect. Plus, you don't have to own the original game to play this one. Follow?

Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts (PC)

Crispy Gamer
30 January 2008
  • Excerpt: Okay, first, a rant. There's no point mucking up a review of a perfectly good game, so let's just get this out the way. By adding a restrictive copy protection scheme, Opposing Fronts breaks one of the very things that made Company of Heroes in particular and THQ's games in general so good. The new game even retroactively changes the copy protection for the core game.

  • Conclusion: always a chance to stage a comeback, usually in a spectacular fashion if you've hedged your bets properly, which is particularly satisfying online.  But that's where the strategy comes in.  Opposing Fronts adds British and German campaigns but no matter what side you choose to march with, learning the advantages and disadvantages of each individual unit -- and figuring out how units can be grouped together to make effective fighting forces -- is the key to victory,...

  • Pros: Two brand new factions to battle with; new layers of strategy.
  • Cons: No revolutions to the gameplay; forced signing-in is a hassle; a lot more micromanagement.

  • Excerpt: If you haven’t figured out yet, Opposing Fronts is a not-so-stand alone expansion. Let me elaborate a little. During the installation process, the game checks if there’s the original Company of Heroes installed on your hard drive. If that is the case, it first uninstalls it –along with any mods that are present- before installing Opposing Fronts. It’s a dubious way to start the day you might say.
  • Pros: Two new campaigns, polished graphics and sound
  • Cons: Installation is a hassle, dubious copy protection system, feels semi-finished
