  1.  Best RTS for a long time


    I've been playing this game since launch and each of the expansions on release day, it is without doubt the best RTS avaliable. The first 2 parts of the game have real single player experiances, ToV is mainly a Multiplayer expansion, The story mode is good fun and the AI is well designed, but the main attraction to this game is the multiplayer.

    For me this is the LAN option, as a group of 6 to 8 people we used to play C&C but once we started this we've never been back, we've had some awsome 3+ hour battles but dont think that the game is over if your on the back foot, everything can change in an instant. The other feature which is really good is that should you be destroyed quickly your not out the game you can call in units to rebuild and get back into the fight I dont know of any other game that lets you do this and this is a fantastic addition

    If you decide to buy this game and you really should just install from the Tales of Valor disk and add the CD keys for the other 2 parts once you've entered the game, doing this will save you alot of installing/patching time and will guarentee that everything will work first time and you'll only need to download a couple of patches instead of 16-17 you would be prompted to install if you start with CoHs origional
