Company of Heroes was a game for true armchair generals. There was no resource collecting, no tank rushes, none of the hallmarks of other games that look like they're about a clash of armies but are really little but mouse-driven sprint races. Built...

To be honest, we really wanted to dislike Company of Heroes 2 . As is tradition whenever we have a new strategy game, we immediately fired up the game's skirmish mode and cracked open a delicious can of soda to accompany (what we assumed would be) a...

The WW2 genre; the setting of choice for the previous generation of consoles whilst the modern and futuristic genre took centre stage for this generation. Sadly it appears that the consoles have left the wars of old in the past, with the influence of...

In a gaming world where the rushing-tactic realities of StarCraft II's gameplay formula are the norm for real-time-strategy titles, it's about time there was a contender to the RTS crown where brains matters a whole lot more than digital brawn. Company...

Published by Sega following the demise of THQ, Company of Heroes 2 is the second outing for this acclaimed RTS, and although it doesn't reinvent the wheel, it successfully tweaks and refines the squad micromanagement formula to create another fine...

The real-time strategy genre is very under-represented these days, with three of its biggest players being Blizzard with the Warcraft and StarCraft series', Creative Assembly with the Total War series and Relic Entertainment with... let's just say that...

This week I've been getting lost in a part of the gaming world I know little about, real-time strategy. I've tried and failed at this genre before and I've yet to find a game that really hooked me, even then I think the last one I moderately enjoyed was...

Company of Heroes 2 is an RTS fan's RTS game, even if it’s neither flawless nor the game to put the genre back on top. It’s one of the most engaging strategy games we’ve had in ages, with enough going to give your brain and your senses a real workout, and enough depth of content to keep you hooked for months.

This familiarity is unlikely to breed much contempt, however, given Company of Heroes 2's consistent level of enjoyment. Its barrage of online and offline skirmishes doesn't always hit its mark. But when it finds its target, Company of Heroes 2 delivers a loud and mighty payload.

However, that comparison is to one of the finest real-time strategy games ever made, and being mostly as good as that makes this an excellent game on its own. Play the original first (it’s cheap) but Company of Heroes 2 satisfied my appetite for more.

While Company of Heroes 2 sometimes makes you feel like you're fighting the game as well as the enemy, if you take time to understand the systems at work beneath the carnage and pick and choose your battles wisely, you will ultimately be rewarded by a deep and enjoyable RTS.

Few real-time strategy games make battle such a visceral and satisfying experience as Company of Heroes 2. The core gameplay of the series remains intact while veterans and newcomers will have to adapt to controlling the Soviet Red Army in their battle...

For those of us not inclined towards a combination of the words 'Star' and 'Craft', Company of Heroes is perhaps the finest traditional RTS of the past decade. It's taken almost seven years for a full sequel to arrive, yet with Company of Heroes 2...

I’ve been playing a lot of strategy games lately, some turn-based and some real-time, which is very odd because I am the antithesis of a strategy gamer. I like to be able to jump in and just mindlessly enjoy myself for thirty minutes or maybe a few...
