will be buying the game today hope it delivers what it advertise.
Hmm you would think by this time of age in gaming these strategy games would look more life like, yet they still look rather meh...
Just bought this yesterday, look forward to having time to play it. It's really what I'm in the mood for.
*Thanks for a 'video' review gs.
Why many of you guys always compare this game with StarCraft. Both of these games are great but very distinguished in GAMEPLAY. In case of production quality, both of these games are actually distinguished in theme, how can they represent as the same as each other.
7.5 does seem low when you compare what Starcraft 2 Heart of the Swarm got. I enjoyed Heart of the Swarm but it's hard to see how it was significantly better than CoH2.
7.5 is a little low of a score for this game. It deserves at least an 8 maybe an 8.5 There is less new that many people would like but like someone else said how much was new in Starcraft 2 yet they still gave it like a 9.5 rating.
a 30 second ad for ghastly Internet Explorer before every video review? please gamespot make the torment stop. advertise something better, sausages for example, or new sofas
I played the beta and have the full game right now. Its a good game, if you like COH 1 it is just that with more stuff, which is good, the old formula is good and they improved it. Some new gameplay things are pretty awesome and better than CoH 1, balance seems sometimes off but mostly not, the open beta stats said 51% german win and 49% russian, and on the forums both accuse eachother of being OP, so in a way it is pretty balanced. However the 50 euro price tag isnt justified, I bought it new for 35 euro becasue I love COH and i dont regret it but 50 euro would be too much.
I started playing the game in the OPEN-beta period. The game then was in my opinion very balanced! Way more balanced then company of heroes 1, were the German tanks were indistructable.
People are talking here about bugs & balancing issues like it is the new Simcity. I really think this game doesnt deserve that. I cant imagine that this game would be a waste of your money. (if you like strategy games afcourse)
I am the happy person who refunded this game in beta. This is a game that have huge balanced problems and the tactics getting old really fast compared to COH1. Few units the counter common units on the other side make the game boring.
It is a game that is designed to competitive gameplay and already now you can buy dlcs that give you new abilities ingame that other may not have. I have money for that, but didnt meet my expectations.
I find the score 7.5 right on, this is more like a mod in progress. Wait a few months or a year, then pick it up perhaps.
People are obnoxious about review scores go review the game yourself damn...
The snow terrain stuff looks awesome!
did the people below play the game? go to the steam and game forums the game is messy now screwed balance, tech issues for some people, crashes and freezing after 5mins or every 1 mission, the game have few maps too, you cant host a game as of now you have to pub with lvl 1 noobs, laggers and droppers etc 7.5 is a good generous score for it as of now but it will get fixed like COH 1.
ps. there is a 56$ worth of DLC out for this game already LOL.
Considering the video review essentially calls it the pinnacle of strategy gaming, is a 7.5 score really representative of that? From the tone of the review, I would have expected at least an 8.0.
Score in the video review says 8.5 but 7.5 on the game page.
ah the flamethrower halftrack, the bane of inexperienced players from the start of the closed beta. Keep in mind this vehicle has been nerfed multiple times since then, its a mere shadow of its former glory.
@PurePropagandaThere is. You'll find it when going to the options when hosting a game. Not the game options, though, the options button when creating a game. ;)
@TheTrueObelus These media sites get paid to put out higher reviews, everybody knows that.. and especially by big business like Blizzard.
Why compare it to Starcraft 2? Compare this to the original Company of Heroes. For COH fans, I guess this could be a disappointment but I'm still going to give this game a chance. A chance that I will probably like it a lot despite a number rating.
@TheTrueObelus Because it is starcraft,i think
@dinu No you do, you just win faster. I've been playing without paying and have a Tier V Medium tank already. Just takes longer if you don't pay.
@dinu This game deserves what the reviewer thinks it deserves because it's his opinion. How would you feel if someone told you what to think about about stuff?
@JPokes Paid off by Blizzard, it really is sad how obvious it is right?
@zolos100 Yeah, revolutionary with big money.
@Foxhound1982 ever heard of google chrome? might wanna try it... and if you like Internet Failxplorer use a popup/addblocker
@CoolKidX Like CoH1, Germans have bunkers, and Panzer Grenadiers! Sold! :)
@CoolKidX The factions are balanced. Some units could still be balanced better to give more variety in strategies, but no game is perfectly balanced on launch.
Reading forums i wonder if some people just want the factions to be mirrors of each other though. ("Buff russian tanks!" "Buff german squadsizes!")
@Max_160 How is 7.5 a trash budget game rating?
@Max_160 it has some budget game feel to it the terrible voice acting of the units, the small maps and the small number of units each side have besides it was made under THQ management they were not doing good on the $$$.
@Cloud_imperium well pal if u know about WWII military and tanks u won't like the balace at all, but if u like starcraft II and fast based strategy games this is good 1
@Cloud_imperium IGN knows more about Game of Thrones than videogames.
@Cloud_imperium Ign, dont trust those guys
@uglypinkmoose Hell no, I want people to review for me! That's their job, not mine! I'LL BE DAMNED IF I PLAY A GAME!!!
@ravenbeast If you like the game then go buy it you muppet. Pull your head out your ass.
@with_teeth26 Keep your eyes cleaned.
Shouldn't we be talking about CoH2 NOT Starcraft2, or any other games for that matter if you please/thank you very much??!!!
Whats wrong with the voice acting? Its equally good as CoH 1, some better, like new awesome taunts "Lebensraum? Who wants to live here when we're done?". Small maps, yeah some, their smaller than CoH1 but it works good. They most likely will update wth new patches giving free maps and stuff.
@Mantan911 I don't trust them either, but I don't trust any site's reviewers over the opinion of a trusted friend/gamer's take on it. ign lost cred a long time ago. Some would say the same of gs, for me- I like the video reviews -not to take a reviewer's word for it, but to see for myself and make better decisions but very little of what a reviewer has to say matters -only black/white facts- the rest is subjective.
