    I really doubted the single player campaign in CoH2 could surprise me in any way, but the introduction of the strategic map made Ardennes Assault worthy of even being sold as a separate game. I’m impressed. [01/2015, p.56]

    This new addition costs as much as the core game and lacks multiplayer, but if you're happy stomping AI then the long, rewarding campaign will see you right. [Feb 2015, p.79]

    As an expansion, The Ardennes Offensive feels a bit expensive for what it is. The campaign missions are well designed, though, and increasing the importance of the individual soldiers is a great addition to the game mechanics. [Jan 2015]

    With this new structure Ardennes Assault represents the best single-player experience seen in a Company of Heroes title to date.

    COH 2 is steeped in quality : he got rid of unnecessary additions of episode 2 and offers us an intense and gripping single player campaign. The series is back on track.

    Relic's latest standalone expansion represents the best elements of real-time and turn-based strategy, making it worth playing for anyone who appreciates the form and likes to see it taken in new directions.

    Relic’s attempt to create a more dynamic single player campaign is partially successful, but the systems of company permanence don’t entirely gel with the inflexibility of an Iron Man save system, and the map is light on grand strategy.

Goebbels would be proud...
    I was still willing to give the multiplayer a chance, but that failed me too due to the lack of balance and constant buffing some type of German soldiers or vehicles. But that's not it. The DLCs that are game changing are really unbalanced. They are overpriced and overpowered.
    This game is a complete disappointment for me and many other Company of Heroes fans. Don't buy this unless its on 80% off or you know history well.

Sega/Relic continue on their road to completely ruin the series withThis expansion is another slap to the face for all fans of the franchise. Sega/Relic continue on their road to completely ruin the series with their descisions. AA being the latest failure, it offers nothing but the same bog-stupid unless predictably scripted AI, no multiplayer content and a sorry excuse for a campaign. Pricing this at 40€ is outright confusing, since you'd inspect for actual new content to be created to justify that price, which is absolutely not the case. Expand
