Company of heroes is in my opinion the very best real time strategy available. This why I think so: 1) Balanced macro and micro management I played several RT strategies before, but this game thought me most of what I know now about strategy and tactics. This game opened a whole new chapter even for my personal development. As I wanted to be better in this game, I have read art of war, watched several youtube channels for strategy hints and found out art of war knowledge works very well with this game. I also watched The pacific series - and it actually helped me with usage of mortar teams in this game. Real world strategies works very well in this game together with clear strategy and tactics definition and that's what I love about games. 2) Teamwork and memorable moments We used to play together with my friends, we were in top 2% when there was COHO and had amazing memories of games when other team was pushed in their bases while the match was tole to be easy for them. Later on, another group of our friends were playing together, and thought they are good eough - we used to play 3 vs 2 and we were losing - not badly, but losing. When we join 3 vs 3, we owned then so badly, they unistalled the game and never played it later on. Those are the memories I love about this game. 3) The Rest Graphics are good even after years, sound effects are amazing, performance is excellent.
