“Company of Heroes 2” is the second installment of the RTS series that takes place during World War II. It was created by Relic studio accountable for the whole series. The studio is also known for many other great games, e.g. “Homeworld” or “Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War”.

This time the players are taken back to the times of World War II, to once again stand and fight as a troop commander. The players command Red Army troops (Eastern Front) trying to fend off the Nazis. The game begins with operation Barbarossa in the spring of 1941 to end in Berlin in 1945.

“Company of Heroes 2” presents the best elements of its predecessor. It is a RTS game with strong tactical elements; headquarters development is a secondary issue. At the same time the developers have introduced numerous improvements. Cover system has been completely rebuilt – soldiers make smart use of all kinds of covers. Moreover, they can quickly storm the enemy troops by jumping over low walls without wasting time trying to flank anybody. The vehicle mechanics and their animation have been improved as well – tanks omit the trees and do not block the infantry, a feature that improves the action on the battlefield. The mobility of units depends heavily on weather conditions – during blizzard soldiers cover their faces from falling snow and move much slower. If you do not protect your men against the cold, the chill can kill them.

The game offers complex multiplayer mode – you can fight for the Third Reich or Red Army. Matches are played on different maps, both winter and summer and up to 8 people (4 vs. 4) may be involved. Moreover, the game allows you to unlock special newsletters increasing combat capabilities of your troops, new commanders (doctrines), vehicle skins, etc.

Visually, the game looks much better than the previous part owing to new Essence 3.0 engine. It offers increased number of environment and unit details and more advanced physics that enables you to destroy every element of the map.
