    It may lack an ambitious single-player campaign but this value for money proposition serves to highlight that sometimes less really can be more. [Sept 2014, p.98]

    The new armies are unique and fun to use, and the extra maps seem well balanced, but if you are looking for new single player content or for something to get introduced to the world of Company of Heroes 2, you will find this here. This expansion is recommended only to the experienced players.

    Company of Heroes 2: The Western Front Armies is a great deal for newcomers, who can buy, for 20 euros, a deep RTS online. Existing players will have a solid DLC, but a worse deal.

ItThis is what Company of heroes 2 should have been like all along. At the price of 20€ for us Europeans it is nothing less then a steal. It completely transforms the game into something with a little more edge. The units, the graphics and even the physics seem to have gotten an overhaul, with the welcome addition of two new armies and the introduction of the American forces.

    Another welcome addition is the new lobby system that now allows for users to make their own custom matches without all the hassle of only being able to invite friends via steam.

    On top of the lobby system, is now the new "spoils of war" loot system, that will randomly drop you a "supply crate" after a game has ended, rewarding you with a random new upgrade weather its a new commander, skin or bulletin of various "rareness". A brilliant little feature. All in all, if you liked the original Company of heroes or the sequal, the Western Front Armies is nothing short of a must buy.

    10/10! :)

    Fun for an substantially indefinite amount of hours.
