 Cheaper than what I paid for the expansion alone!

Company of Heroes is the best RTS for many years and the expansion is just as high in quality. The 2 new armies play very different and have some versatile and fun toys to play with.

£18 for both is very good value for money. Even if you have the first maybe its more reasonable getting the Gold Edition!

 Modern day classics!

Just when the market for innovative RTS (Real time strategy) games was getting stagnant along comes this gem!

Unlike the C&C series, you have to control sectors and resources such as fuel and ammunition, because of this tactics plays a much larger role and its not simply a case of sending everyone charging into battle. The AI in the game (both the original and Opposing Fronts) is great, with enemy units who come under fire diving for cover behind walls etc.

However, graphics (providing your computer can handle them) are jaw droppingly gorgeous, especially with some of the dynamic weather effects. The battlefield looks even better as a barrage of explosions rips through the enemy ranks spraying dirt, shrapnel and limbs up into the air!

Whilst the graphics have certainly managed to capture the dirty and gritty feel of war, the music and sound to the games really heightens the whole experience, with breathtaking classical tracks providing a soundtrack to a war in which your soldiers shout verbal abuse at the enemy!

Overall, if you are after a good looking world war 2 RTS game but which isn't just all gloss, but has some pretty decent AI/tactics etc going on then pick this up. With both games in this pack you don't have an excuse!

 Great Price and Package

Company of Heroes is an amazing RTS game with realistic damage and destructible environments the visuals are inspiring

The multi-player and skirmish is fun were you can choose to play as the Allies (Americans) or Axis (Germans) but the real experience is in the campaign. Seen through the Allies eyes you must move through France to Germany, but along the way you see some of the most moving character sequences I've seen in a game, making you almost feel the horrors of war and the battles are very cinematic
If you've seen the opening to Saving Private Ryan then just imaging that scale and ferocity as you play the beach landings and from then on the game still never lets up with the intense rush of adrenaline

This package is a great deal as for the price of 1 game you get 2

The expansion adds 2 more intense campaigns and 2 new armies The British and German Panzer Elite

The British campaign is the liberating of Caen and the German campaign is the struggle to repel Operation Market Garden

This is a must for all RTS and WW2 fans

Even if you already have one of them as the expansion is standalone you should still invest in this as its still cheaper than buying them singularly and you could always give the other to friends or family for them to experience

 An outstanding & refreshing take on Real Time Stratergy.

When it comes to RTS games it seems that the first player to build up their base so that they can get the biggest and best units & amass a huge army will be the winner. Dawn of War, Relic's other RTS, is certainly guilty of this, though perhaps not as guilty as some.

Company of Heroes drastically breaks this trend. Making almost every unit just as valuable as the rest, with very individual abilities and uses. It's possible to be attacked by the largest possible army, and repel them with a few well placed Anti-Tank guns & Heavy Machine Gunners.

This makes the game far more strategic than most other RTS games. Your units are valuable, and looking after them rather than throwing the recklessly at the enemy will serve you well. The terrain is destructible, walls and buildings can be blown down to create new paths. The cover system provided by the terrain for your units is very deep, so finding the perfect placement for your units is also very important. Not to mention that the graphics are fantastic, adding a certain feeling to the experience that you might not get otherwise.

All of this comes together and morphs in to one of the greatest RTS experiences you can find. Coupling that with this package, of the original game and the expansion for a great price, and you're looking at what should be an instantaneous decision. If you can run this game on your PC, you should play it ASAP. It's an experience you can't get anywhere else.

 Best RTS ever
