About this game

Content Rating: Mature

Summary

Players must take control of certain points on the map. The more of these points a player controls, the more resources they acquire. This concept demands constant expansion of a player's territory. These points are connected like supply lines, and so, during the course of a battle a player can capture one point in the supply line, isolating the rest which had been connected to the base through it, therefore reducing the enemy's resource intake. Players collect three resources: manpower, munitions, and fuel. Manpower is necessary to produce all units. Munitions allows players to upgrade individual squads or vehicles and use special abilities. Fuel allows players to purchase tanks and other vehicles, build base buildings and acquire global upgrades.

Company of Heroes is a busy looking and sounding game. The environments are filled with details, down to the thousands of individual, and ultimately destructible, bricks that comprise a small apartment block. You will also see great vistas of the European mountains, hills, forests and farmlands where the actual battles took place. The character animation is realistic and the particle effects of the fire and explosions will send shivers.

Company of Heroes is technically remarkable and features some novel twists that make it unique among real-time strategy games. Yet while it's easy to get into, it's not just difficult to master but also rather difficult to manage, partly because the game does such a good job of evoking the sheer chaos of frontline WWII battles. In spite of these issues, remarkably, Company of Heroes still stands out from the glut of WWII-themed games released over the years, as well as the glut of real-time strategy games.

The single player mode is downright extravagant. Gorgeous in-game cutscenes and moody narrated storyboard-style videos set a perfect atmosphere. More than 15 well-scripted, challenging and very replayable missions (secondary goals, like inflicting a certain number of casualties on the Nazis, keep you coming back for more) unspool the familiar story of the D-Day invasion that spelled the beginning of the end for Hitler.
