Nothing they have shown about this game looks all that exciting to me. I haven't seen anything that feels fresh and new in Company of Heroes 2. Besides the change in environment, the visuals and animations look like they are from the original Company of Heroes. The ground textures look muddy, the animations are choppy, the explosions aren't incredibly detailed, etc. It just seems lazy and sad that they couldn't massively improve the visuals 6 years later. I honestly think the graphics look kinda bad, DX11 isn't going to fix everything up and make it look modern. The gameplay looks okay. I'm sure it will be fine, but again nothing really all that cool or innovative. It still looks like the original game with a few cool new features here and there. Also...why haven't we seen any single player campaign stuff yet?
Company of Heroes 2 looks more like a big expansion pack instead of a sequel to a 6 year old game. I think everyone had very high expectations for a Company of Heroes sequel. However, I feel like they aren't meeting any of my expectations or blowing me away like they should. Creative Assembly makes new total war games every 2 years, and they all look AMAZING. I don't understand why Relic can't do the same thing.
What do you guys think? Does this seem like a worthy sequel to you?
