Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts PC Game

  • THQ
  • M - Mature
  • Genre Strategy
ICON Loading...

Take command of your company and lead your men to victory through the war-torn fields of France. Opposing forces is the stand-alone expansion to the award-winning real-time combat simulation game, Company of Heroes, which puts you in command of British, Commonwealth or German company-sized units from D-Day through the liberation of Caen. Break out from the Normandy beacheads and strike out towards the villages and cities. Or, as the commander of Kampfgruppe Lehr, defend Germany by throwing the British out of the Netherlands.

The environment has been crafted to take damage appropriate to the weapons and the units' AI is smart enough to seek cover, or take advantage of a newly created hole in a building. Take buildings for your own use or demolish them to create cover and deny them to the enemy. Real-time weather and day-to-night transitions add depth to the game. Take control of specific points on the map to acquire resources. Defend and connect these points to provide a clear line of communication back to your HQ or your supply line will be disrupted.

You'll have at your disposal a large arsenal of weapons and troops including specialist units such as the Tetrach airborne tank, Jagdpanther and Commandos. Set up minefields and strongpoints to disrupt enemy counterattacks and zoom in or out of the battlefield as the action happens to direct your forces. Play alone, online or with friends. Pieces of buildings, vehicles and bodies hurtle away from the destructive forces that are unleashed. You must take – and hold – your objective in order to achieve victory!

1 out of 5 eggsBuy the gold version instead

Pros: Good game

Cons: Only British and Panzer Elite companies.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this version. Should pay 7 dollars more to get the gold version that includes all 4 companies American, British, and 2 Germans. I don't know why Newegg is still selling this version.

5 out of 5 eggsawesome game, fast delivery from newegg

Pros: As always fast delivery from newegg.
great game keeps u hooked on for hours.
Must buy if u love RTS games.

Cons: system gets slow in the game after few hrs of play, due to heavy graphics. which can be toned down but guess its cause i have only 128 shared Video Ram.

Other Thoughts: Have to disable the internet connection every time before start of the game. cause it automatically tries to connect and download Patch. Game should have feature to disable auto connect to online patch download. Anyways still great game worth buying for sure.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat game

Pros: Fast shipping.
The two new armies are quite different from the original two, so if you want something more than just the same old two armies then I suggest you get this. The graphical upgrade is very good as well since they added some dx10 features.

Cons: The new armies are kind of strange...they are a little too different from the original two. I am getting used to using them, but it's hard to not just go back to Wehrmacht and America because they are typical well-rounded rts armies. It's not so much a con, but they are still kind of strange how they are played.

Other Thoughts: Overall it's a great game, and if you liked the original COH then go ahead and get this if you are getting tired of the same old two armies.

5 out of 5 eggs5 Stars.

Pros: It has unique gameplay, and fast enough to keep you busy (not just sit and build like other RTS).
If you like the first version, you have to buy this!

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Some people is complaning about online-play, but this is an off-line game, and I think they are still in deveploving online servers. If you gave this game 4 stars because Relic's problem, then you are so wrong, it's about how good the game is, not about their network problem.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent game

Pros: Good game with interesting unique features. It's got a lot of character for it. In general I love the game, when it works correctly it's highly competitive and good solid fun especially in multiplayer.

Cons: The multiplayer protocols are horrible. Inability to connect to people is prevalent along with random errors in starting the a game and after loading a game. I think Relic needs to go back to the drawing board on their multiplayer capabilities and employ someone with talent. It is also has an online check for CD-key so if you don't have your disk you can't play unless you've got internet access or Relic's servers haven't crashed. Downloading patches are also a pain due to the way they've got it set up.

Other Thoughts: Cons aside, this is really a good game. If they can fix their problems then I'd give it 5 stars. The issues they've got only frustrate and require me to quit out and restart.

4 out of 5 eggsawsome ww2 game

Pros: this game is the master for rts ww2 games not since panzer general 2 has a ww2 game in the rts mode been so good. the graphics are outstanding if you can run the highest settings and very good if your playing on low-end gamming rigs. coh is well supported and the new content for the original is excellent.

Cons: the opposing fronts starts, uploading to online gamming and requiring a patch, if you don't have the latest patch you can't even play single player. this is stupid in my opinion. this is the only reason i gave it 4 stars

Other Thoughts: none really except if your a ww2 rts fan and lover panzer general, get this game.
