Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor is a great deal at thirty dollars, and while the singleplayer campaigns are short (but provide a new way to play through the Direct-fire mode) and ‘new’ units are basically just replacements, new game modes...

Back when Company of Heroes was released many were amazed at the progress Relic pushed forward on the RTS scene. This lightning struck a second time with the release of Dawn of War II, which, again, pushed the genre forward a good bit. Some time has...

PLAYING the latest instalment in the Company of Heroes (COH) series is like being in a fleeting romance - sweet and heady but all too short.COH: Tales of Valor retains most of the beauty and addictiveness of the 2006 World War II real-time strategy...

Company of Heroes is the pinnacle of World War 2 RTS games. Relic, CoHs developer, takes a little bit of realism in their WW2 strategy, and removes most of the baggage from the genre to focus more on the tactical level. Today Im reviewing Tales of...

There’s no ‘U’ in Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor, which reflects the absence of a British campaign. There’s no ‘I’ either, but they probably should’ve worked one in. Considering the way most of this...

Stand-alone expansion Tales of Valor coasts on the name. That isnt necessarily a bad thing, given that the 2006 original is still the gold standard of World War II real-time strategy gaming. But this latest addition to the family is pretty paltry,...

If we'd walked into a store and paid full price for this without knowing the limited amount of play we'd actually get from it, we'd feel jipped. The extra multiplayer modes hardly make up the shortfall in content. You have been warned....

Given the tremendous success of the original Company of Heroes, it is not terribly surprising that Relic and THQ have been quick to capitalize on their franchise. The latest outing comes in the form of Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor. This...

If you enjoyed Company of Heroes, there’s little doubt you’ll want to pick up Tales of Valor. Just keep in mind that this is an expansion, meant to keep you satisfied until a true sequel...

Overall, the visuals in the game are impressive which makes for a pleasurable visual experience. So many war games have a cluttered feeling to them as they jam as many war torn elements on the screen as possible. This is not the case with Company of...

The stand-alone expansion pack is a strange beast. Its clearly not ambitious enough to qualify as a sequel but its few improvements seem to put it above the rank (and price point) of an expansion pack. Add to that the consumers freedom to purchase...

This is the first time I felt a little disappointed in Company of Heroes. Let's back up a bit: Company of Heroes has a great track record to date. The original game rightfully holds the title of "best WWII game that isn't Call of Duty 2." And...

Relics Dawn of War II was a big departure from what fans of the original game expected. Rather than just make a bigger game with better graphics, the development team decided to go in a completely different direction with successful -- albeit...

Relic has gotten the model for RTS down cold, and while they're willing to experiment here and there, they know a sure thing when they see it. Case in point: Tales of Valor, the newest expansion to the Company of Heroes series. It would be...

Well Tanks a lot for that, I had fun.Company of Heroes is usually a name which is given some much deserved respect from the RTS crowd, but Tales of Valour definitely isn’t able to stand shoulder to shoulder with the main game in some respects....

In 2006, the original Company of Heroes game gave military RTS fans and avid PC gamers something to truly get excited about. The game's thrilling WWII tactical gameplay coupled masterfully with its adrenaline-fueled presentation and deep strategic...

International Review By Gamereactor on 80

Det smukke Company of Heroes er tilbage i endnu en udvidelsespakke. Nikolaj har kommanderet rundt med sine tropper og er klar til at fortælle det hele.Mine listige kommando-tropper glider uset gennem landskabet mod deres mål, et lille fransk...

International Review By Gamer.no on 70

Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor kan godt virke som en noe fragmentert og ufokusert utvidelsespakke. Den inneholder ingen nye fraksjoner, og som spillere har vi to ganger tidligere blitt introdusert for kampanjemoduser som på sett og vis utgjorde...
