Default Company of Heroes...

Anyone played it yet? Whats your opinion on it? Has amazing reviews and I'm bidding on ebay for it. Should I be excited to get it?

Yes. If you played Dawn of War, and if you liked it, be prepared for a more epic WWII version of it. Even if you hated DoW, Company of Heroes is still a solid strategy game. Little bit steep on the system requirements, however.

It kicks ass. I cant wait to start playing multiplayer (damn my policy of playing through the single player campaigns first!)

The realism involved makes it great. I also cried when my squad took cover on its own and someone said:

"Does anyone have a fucking grenade?"

I finally got around to buying my own copy of it, and my god, it's incredible. More so than I thought originally, when I played my friend's copy of it.

I like how it's so incredibly difficult at first, but not like Warcraft III difficult where the computer cheats and rushes you so fast. The AI is, god forbid, intelligent.

Yes it was an awesome game for sure. And I like how you had the option of how to use the army by choosing what command points to spend and such.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Am I the only one that thinks this is exactly the kind of RTS where the units should have ammo? I don't know, that just seems cool to me.

>> Quality game. imho, better than any of the dow games. The difficulty and the ai are well balanced too. Buy this game, its well worth it. off topic for a minute. I was in my local HMV the other day and they were selling COH by itself for 19.99, and behind it they had the version with the FREE copy of DOW for.... 29.99? I asked a member of staff why this was, and he told me it was because thats what they are told by their bosses to sell it at. When I said DOW is free with it, he told me it was;nt his problem, and walked away. Great stuff eh?

Nice. Always a joy to run into such caring and helpful staff eh?

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?
