Company of Heroes 2 review: same intensity, little innovation

Company of Heroes 2 review: same intensity, little innovation

For many, Relic Entertainment's original Company of Heroes is the standard by which RTS games are measured. The seven year old classic refined resource gathering to be more realistic. Players had to go out to capture and hold objectives to build a war machine, allowing them to focus on combat and strategy. Units were to scale, as infantry was dwarfed by armor. Infantry squads bolstered by a remarkably intelligent AI knew how to take cover and not stand in the open, and they could be equipped with machine guns, mortars, and other items left by dead units.

Company of Heroes 2 plays to the strength of the series: building up a force and going to war, combined with a depth that few strategy games can match. Unfortunately, it does little to move the series forward aside from some minor bells and whistles.
