i will re-edit this review when i am more awak. my honest review of this game.
the game itself is meh. the fact firing shells is limited by range is dissapointing. even if the shells wouldn't scratch a tank it was fired at, it still would be nice to shoot. infantry hardly respond to orders, they move very clunky and awkwardly, attack move is pretty much useless because even if your infantry spot the enemies they still keep running until half of their men are wiped out and only then do they return fire. issues with grenades. if an enemy throws a grenade at your men, 99 percent of the time they just cower down and get blown up, rather than jump forward to prone position. also how when you send infantry to throw AT grenades at tanks, they run up, and pause just before they throw their grenades leaving them to be easily slaughtered
tanks. as for tanks, some shells that bounce off on other tanks would make you think "what the ♥♥♥♥, how the ♥♥♥♥ is that possible?" for instance, maybe an IS2 within throwing distance off a king tiger, shells bouncing. just toal unrealism.
no planes to be able to use in custom multiplayer, only rarely can we use planes in SP. i know there's mods to use planes but that's beside the point. also Artillery can be a gamebreaker, it is overly overpowered.
i got this game at 75% off but i can still say i got my moneys worth. whether they will add more stuff to the game rather than minor patches i don't know. also the multiplayer is prone to desyncs and crashes. going on to steam overlay will black screen your game, atleast for me on a very good gaming rig.
Performance wise, the game runs quite okay until city maps with big battles. on an i5 4670k @3.4Ghz 8gb Ram, 970gtx, it can dip on high-ultra perfomance to about 20-30 fps, depending.
i would still even say buy it at full price, even after what i have said it is still a very great game, and a more realistic alternative to COH2.
