(+) Graphics are great. Snow looks good, small things like wrecked tanks on the battlefield go a long way.
(+) Nasty explosions leave arms and legs and guns everywhere, even though it's nasty, it's real.
(-) Cartoonish look to armor, IMO
the tanks are a step down form the previous CoH looking almost too blocky and unrealistic.
(-) Inaccurate portrayal of the Russians.
(-) Campaign feels a bit repetitive, attack the defending Germans with wave after after wave of conscripts until you break through. No real replay value
(+) Refreshing Eastern Front story mode, not just the ole' USA view point. USSR gets love
(+/-) Another story as the US is avaliable, via DLC. Yet it's $40.
*Note for the first point, here's a more in depth analysis of the inaccuracy of the way the USSR was portrayed.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2m4SCUaBHS8
(-) Some balance issues, I play all of the factions and I have to say the lack of heavy tanks for the USF and numerous heavy tanks for Germany (Elefant, King Tiger, Tiger etc.) is a bit strange and makes larger games very hard for Allies to win. Especially since the Pershing heavy tank was in the original CoH, but taken out in CoH2.
(+) Aside from the first point, balance is solid
(+) Good options to auto-match with friends, either against AI or PvP
(+) 4 Unique factions each with unique abilties and strenghts
(+) Good infantry cover system
(+) True line of sight adds a bit of realism to game play
(+) MG suppression is great
(-) Tank movement sometimes a but clunky, if you click somewhere the tank often time responds poorly, it hits objects to slow it, reversing and going forward ultimately getting itself killed. Reminds me of the old Austin Powers scenehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iLKR9tCiwvA
Bugs and Fixes
(-) Retreat pathing is sometimes horrendous, when you retreat units you will find them sometimes stuck on dead bodies leaving them fully exposed to enemy fire. Very frustrating to lose a squad this way.
(+) Overall the bugs have been worked out, outside of the one I listed I can't name a bug that has had an impact on gameplay.
(-) Micro transactions, and an almost pay to win feel through the purchase of new commanders
(-) Over priced DLC, and selling us factions that should have already been in the game
(+) Fixed bugs, added new feautures like the cool spectator mode that allows you to watch any Live game being played
Compant of Heroes 2 is a solid game, it's action packed with a lot of fun moments to be had playing with your favorite faction or trying new ways to win. Although the game isn't perfect, it does a good job of providing hours of good gameplay. Altough, I could do without the money grabbing ways of Relic and the lack of US relevence in Multiplayer. Not even the Holiday Sale brought down that $40 over priced DLC.
