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....

More than anything I could possibly write about Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts, no matter how effusive the praise, nothing speaks louder to the depth of this stand-alone expansion to last year's Company of Heroes than the fact that...

Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts marks the first expansion to the well-received WWII RTS from last year. This expansion is also a stand-alone title, so newcomers can pick this up and play with no problems outside of not being able to use the...

Making that human connection Its the presentation of the war, though, that helps the Company of Heroes franchise become just that little bit more engaging and reminds you that these are little fake people youre ordering around. (It doesnt sound...

World War II-set Company of Heroes is the greatest real-time strategy game ever made, according to some. Its only problem is that when you play it, you could be forgiven for thinking the Americans won the war on their own. This standalone expansion...

The more Ive played Opposing Fronts the more Ive loved it. Honestly, at first, I hated it (by comparison to the original). Yet for review purposes I had to play enough so I can write about it accurately. That right there did me a favor; now it is...

There's no doubt that with Company of Heroes, Relic practically reinvented the WWII-themed real-time strategy, which has long since been regarded as a rapidly decaying genre. In a sense, Company of Heroes introduced a whole new aspect of real-time...

When subordinates asked him for a word of advice, Erwin Rommel commonly offered: "Never fight a battle you have nothing to gain by winning." Updated for us gamers, the Generalfeldmarschall's adage might run: "Never buy an expansion you have nothing...

When a game gets as much praise as our 2006 PC Game of the Year, it cant be easy to decide what to do for an encore. Company of Heroes was a revelation when it first released. Not only did it actually make World War II (a badly overused videogame...

Few expansion packs come loaded with as many new features as Relic has seen fit to put in -- two entirely new sides, an equal number of expansive campaigns, and enough potential multiplayer action to keep any player occupied for months. With that said...

By IGN Gear on 88

Company of Heroes brought new life into the RTS market for me last year. Relic created the truly complete package with spectacular sound, visuals, single player, and multiplayer gameplay. Relic has certainly tried to maintain the level of glory they...

Real-Time Strategy fans can be heard rejoicing throughout the net this year, spoiled by a plethora of triple-A titles such as Supreme Commander and Command and Conquer 3. Relic looks to continue adding to this impressive list with Company of Heroes:...

International Review By Gamers Globe on 80

Savner du noget nyt indhold til dit Company of Heroes? Så få besøg af den engelske hær eller den tyske Panzer Elite i denne udvidelse.Det er ikke meget man ser til 2. verdenskrig i de traditionelle RTS-spil, man kan finde på...

International Review By Komputer for Alle on 80

Company of Heroes Opposing Fronts er et rigtig godt strategispil, der udspiller sig i slutningen af anden verdenskrig. Man kan enten spille som tyskerne, der kæmper for at holde stand, eller som de allierede, der skal sprænge sig i gennem de...

International Review By FZ.se on 80

Den fullspäckade spelhösten fortsätter med en utmärkt fristående expansion till Company of Heroes. Nya fraktioner, kampanjer och kartor håller hög kvalité rakt igenom men grundreceptet är sig likt. Company of Heroes tog pc-världen med storm i slutet...

International Review By GamePlayer on 80

Jag och Olle Agebro har olika smak när det gäller mycket och framför allt när det gäller Company of Heroes. Andra världskrigsstrategispelet från Relic Entertainment var fram till i höstas det absolut bästa...

International Review By Clubic on 100

Un an après Company Of Heroes, Relic revient à la charge, sans véritables innovations, mais sans faux pas non plus. Extension oblige, Opposing Fronts reprend les mécanismes qui ont fait le succès du jeu de base il y a un an de cela en apportant juste...
