Insanely short scenarios

Summary: While it does give you some new units to work with the scenarios are the shortest I have ever seen, kinda a ripoff. This thing is worth about a dollar in the bargin bin for the scenario factor, maybe $5 for the added skirmishes and units.
Summary: The game itself is awesome but this version does not work properly. It has shadows instead of showing the actual things on the game, which makes it impossible to play. I would love the. Game if I could get one that would work properly.
Summary: I've been sorely missing a good RTS since CoH came out and have been disappointed with other video game offerings out there. So I decided to play CoH all the way through on Hard mode. Just completed. It was definitely worth doing, though ToV was not only short, but had a lack-luster ending. Still worth playing though--for the right price. I think I bought all three games on S_team P0wered for about 12.99 on a weekend deal--now that's worth it.
Summary: ToV is a standalone expansion as just about everyone and their mother has said. I'm a CoH fan, but I play single player, and skirmishes against the AI, and for thirty bucks, this gets you nowhere in terms of bang for said money. You'll see that you get three new campaigns on the main menu, and might think "okay then, three new campaigns! Great!" You will absolutely rocket through them in a matter of a couple of hours.
Summary: I just bought this so-called stand alone game (I own the previous two COH's) and havn't gotten too far into it yet other than some skirmishes on single player. I really enjoy fighting all four opposing armies on my own for five straight hours while my comrades (or allies) sit with their guns slung over their shoulders or have 30 tanks idling in one spot doing nothing but getting blown away by enemy AT weapons. The AI has some serious issues.
Summary: Well, I purchased this after really loving the last two Company of Heroes. I will keep this short, cause just as others said, this game is way to short. You can complete it in under 3 hours. This game if you want to call it that should have been [...] bucks. Way overpriced for what you get. And enjoy the Relic patches that keep breaking CoH. I had to finally disconect my PC so it would not patch after a clean install so I could play it.
Summary: As other reviewers have stated there are only 9 missions for the solo player. What I didn't notice them mentioning was that none of the missions even have a "base building" scenerio. They are all attack this or defend this area missions. None are start with your headquarters and build from there which makes them very fast to play. I feel cheated...First Total War with their terrible Steam DRM and now Heroes that I finished in 2 days and barely spent any time playing it.
Summary: Let me start by saying I've been playing CoH since initial release and so far have bought every installment of it on their respective release dates. I'm not going to tell you that ToV doesn't add to the game. It does, and as a matter of fact, I would recommend getting it at some time. However, that time is not now, as so far this product is grossly overpriced. Let's compare.
Summary: Do not purchase this "standalone" expansion if you like long single player campaigns or b) like low dollar per hour entertainment The single player campaigns are literally 3 missions long and take only 1 hour to complete each. So thats roughly $10 per hour of entertainment if you do not play RTS's online. There's an extreme lack of content here and its borderline gouging.
Summary: I have always enjoyed the CoH series and this expansion pack in a sense gives us a little bit more of what they wanted and that's being able to get up close and personal with some of the major battles that has been fought in the game. I like the idea that Relic has moved this game from more of the same to a more tactical RTS. But it's not enough...read on and see what I am talking about.
