Currently Playing Company of Heroes

| May 25, 2012 | 8 Comments

Strategy games on the PC are probably my favourite type of games and recently I decided to buy Company of Heroes from Steam without knowing much about it.

Within a few hours of playing it I became engrossed in the game and because it’s a strategy game based on World War 2 I couldn’t really ask for much more. The controls are simple so I had no need to try and figure out how things worked or any need to read through the manual which I don’t tend to do for any game.

Company of Heroes has DLC but the main game is based on the invasion of Normandy. So far I’ve played through 13 missions and it has taken me at least 1 hour to complete each one. I’m one of these players that doesn’t like to rush through strategy games, in fact I’d spend the majority of my time setting up my base and soldiers before even thinking about taking on the enemy.

I still haven’t completed the main campaign and I’m not sure how many missions there actually are but hopefully I’ll get a few more hours out of this one. Once I do complete the main game I’ll be moving onto the DLC.

Company of Heroes is available from Steam currently priced at £6.99

      I loved this game. Haven’t finished it yet and had a long break but few days ago I’ve found it among my old PC games and I think I’m going to remember how amazing this game was.

      Yeah its been a great game so far. I’ll probably get the DLC and maybe another series.

      Good to hear from you again Thrash 🙂

    3. It’s on sale at Gamersgate but I think I played a demo of it and it’s just not my cup of tea.

      Besides, too many other unplayed games …

      Yeah I know what you mean there Donncha. I’ve approximately 15 games that I have yet to even install but I’ve been doing well in not buying any new releases, except Sniper Elite.

    5. Damn Steam Sales. I bought Company of Heroes 1 and 2 yesterday. 🙂

      OK OK So I’m late on a subject yet again..

      How did you end up getting on with this and I now have all 3 titles and started playing it last night.

      Always late to the party I am 😉

      Better late than never 🙂

      Yeah I’m still playing this when I get the chance. I haven’t completed it yet but still having fun with it. If I ever do completed it I’d probably but the DLC as well.
