Brutal winter, snipers, frozen lakes swallowing tanks and humans, and some large firefights all get screen time. The PC-only title, coming from THQ's Relic Entertainment division, is scheduled to come out in March.

        unfortunately MOW went a little to heavy on the realisticness of war, imo? I think COH hit the sweet spot on realism and gameplay.

          I'm still gonna vote in favor of Men of War, simply because that game had full campaign co-op (and is the only reason why I still play it, along with it's predecessors, to this day, over and over again).

          Is there any news on if COH will have campaign co-op? I'm sure it'll be fun and I'll play it regardless, but I'll always consider it inferior until that's confirmed.

        I counter your Men of War with Tiberian Sun, the real first game to do tanks crashing through ice!

      Looks great. Hopefully the multiplayer is just as fun as the first game.

        How was online multiplayer on the first game?

        There's master servers?
        It allows for hosting your own server and friends can join?

        Requires port forwarding on the router?

        Hamachi needed?

            Not strictly true...the online component had a shit load of issues with NAT. Not sure if it was fixed with later patches but playing with a few friends was sometimes impossible.

      They shouldn't show those first-person cinematic angles that make it look like a poor man's FPS in the graphics department. Instead, they should show more of the overhead RTS view, because the few seconds of that look great and intricately detailed.

      Now that everyone has CoH from the THQ bundle, and CoH2 around the corner.... I think we need some COH shackbattles. I would fucking have an orgasmic heart attack if everyone gets this mod and we play a tourney: http://www.moddb.com/mods/europe-at-war/downloads
