        Well when they release crap then screw the community they loose respect from me. Then they say they are stopping patching the game. How about their other games. Turning Point: Fall of Liberty .. crap...Soldiers: Heroes of World War II.. crap .... Their company is known for making games that are buggy and full of glitches.

      Codemasters did not develop Turning Point or Soldiers, they only published them.
