About this game

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.

With game mechanics that have been pared and honed almost to perfection, plus arguably the most accessible of game settings, Company of Heroes' combination of heart-pounding action, visceral presentation and emergent tactics not so much raises the bar for RTS games but twists it into knots and blasts it into orbit.

Gameplay is fun, addictive, fast, exciting, and will likely stay fresh for a long time. Both visuals and sound have been given great attention to brilliant effect. The transformation from a idyllic little town into a heap of crushed buildings and burned out husks of vehicles can be shocking. Seeing and hearing major explosions that cause bodies (and bits of bodies) to fly across the screen along with rubble from a nearby building simply puts you more into the battle than any RTS in memory.

Relic has gone above and beyond to polish and nearly perfect the necessary ingredients to a successful RTS. You might miss playing an Axis oriented campaign but in the end, Company of Heroes is a solid real-time strategy experience that should keep you busy for much longer than expected.
