Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts

Game Over Online
5 November 2015
  • 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...

  • Excerpt: The last year the RTS landscape was dominated by Supreme Commander and Company of Heroes and both didn’t have to wait long for an expansion. COH is the first one with Opposing Fronts, a stand-alone expansion pack that lets you play with the British and Panzer Elite troops.

  • Summary: Last year’s Company of Heroes from THQ gave the real-time-strategy genre an injection of vigor not seen in a long time. It mixed up the standard notions of play and introduced elements such as varying types of cover and directional fire; all underscored with a heaping helping of micromanagement to...

  • 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.

  • Summary: I'm sure a lot of people wondered “What's that supposed to mean??” the first time they heard the US Army's “Army of One” tag line, but anyone that has played Call of Duty will know exactly what it means. “Johnson! Take out that machine gun!” “Johnson! Grab that Panzerfaust and stop those tanks!

  • 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.
  • Pros: Two new campaigns, polished graphics and sound
  • Cons: Installation is a hassle, dubious copy protection system, feels semi-finished
