Its not that great of a game in my opinion.
The game was fun for the first level, after that its difficulty went mad high and you couldnt train any units, I expected the game to start with a base and where you could train units give them guns and such like that, no you have 3 campaigns and a few bonus missions, there wasnt a skirmish mode or anything like that, I expected the controls to be easy to understand, I was god awefully wrong, double shift double num 0 what... no just do all the normal keys not all this double press crap. Since there are only 3 campaigns, I dont think it will be that long of a game, nor will it be an everlasting fun game. It was made in 2009 and it does have good aspects and good gameplay, but the game shouldnt be any where near 15 dollars since its that old and has very poor voice acting, it was literally hilarious I was laughing out loud because of how bad the voice acting was. So, to wrap this up, if you like Age of Empires or any other stradegy game on the planet, do not buy this game, you will be madly dissapointed. A waste just like War Z was.

Your opinion, is noted. Now move on, we don't need inflammatory threads.

To clarify, while I respectfully disagree on a myriad of points you cited, I won't denigrate you for it.

I disagree on all of your comments, the game is easy to learn, just figure out how to do it with a mouse. Also the voice acting sucks, I know so what? No skrimish mode? Try Multiplayer I promise you won't regret that. No there is no base building it puts a greater focus on Combat then base building. However if you are looking for a WW2 Base Building game, I suggest Company of heroes.

You probably should have done more research as well as oh i dont know maybe use the demo before you figured out this isnt your little brothers arcadey rts this strives for realistic combat which is why you literally have reinforcements. I would rather have bad ♥♥♥ mechanics like this game offers then fancy shmancy voice acting, and no most missions are at least an hour long so it is quit a good campaign where is dawn of war 2 i scooted through missions in about 15 mins. Everyone else has touched on points i did not if i am missing anything also, i can play this game one handed so I am not sure what the big deal is it's not about memorizing hot keys. Enjoy your day and if you need someone newer to skirmish against get in contact with me.

You are a casual gamer, this is not a casual game, this does not mean the game is bad, it means its not for you.

Any other discussion is just pointless.

Not being a casual game doesn't make it automatically good either. Just saying...

Its my opinion, might as well warn everyone else who likes classic every day stradegy games right? Right. It's my opinion, don't get a bonor over it.

Hyperbole like "waste like WarZ" is the kind of ♥♥♥♥♥♥*t that people need to be called for, this is a complex game that, while it does have its problems, is most CERTAINLY a GOOD game and when you come and compare it to scams like WarZ you need to be called out on your ♥♥♥♥♥♥*t.

What you did here was the same as if I would go to the DCS forum and say "GUIS WAT IS DIS WHY IS IT SO HARD I WANTED TO PLAY HAWX GUYS THIS IS AWFUL GAEM DONT BUY"

some of the worst voice acting this side of the iron curtain, but some truthly unique and fun gameplay

dont expect easy games from the russians, seriously, the guys are known for their simulation games


also did you really compare this game to the War Z? please... for starters these devs are doign something original, second only the graphics and voice acting are bad, on the techincal and mechanical aspects, everything works top notch, unique, responsive mechanics, some nice destruction engine, pathfinding is usually very good, and the game puts all of its tactical options on the table for you, is it overwhelming and difficult? yes, is it boring or unintuitive? no

it was disappointing but is not really a bad game, but is definitively unexcusable for it to be so freaking unbalanced at launch after a long beta period, 6 years of balancing CoH 1, decades of RTS making experience from Relic and a 60 dollar price tag

Actually, it's not the difficulty, it's the game that is just a garbage quality production. Nice graphics and some detail, design direction and everything else is abysmal. One of the worst productions in the genre.

we must be playing different games then, as far as im concerned, one of the finest examples that its gameplay and not graphics or sound what make a game good

this game is an RTT Real time tactics game not an RTS that's why is focusses more on the combat and strategy side. sadly RTS games have lost that strategy side now and become mass zerg rush basically. such a shame.

MOW is a nice mix and a brilliantly complex RTT that i love having to manage my units ammo, the fuel for my tanks, all sorts it makes this game so much more worth the playtime. i miss games that actually made me think about flanking and ambushing my opponent.

and why would you want an easy rts game seriously they're supposed to be about defeating the impossible odds.

This game is all the great things you said but I wouldn't call it intuitive. If you don't really try to learn how to play which includes lots of memorizing of hot keys and checkings bindings then it will be difficult for you to get better. I didn't pick this game up naturally it took a little work.
