    Company of Heroes 2: The British Forces is an excellent multiplayer expansion pack for veteran players, while it's also a great entry point for newcomers with its standalone design.

    By offering players a choice between the Hammer and the Anvil, Relic has prevented the British army from feeling like a retread of the formula established in the original game. An excellent addition.

    That seems like a pretty good deal for $12.99, and I think will make some hardcore CoH2 guys thrilled. For the rest of us, it’s kind of a blur of explosions set in yet more mostly bombed out cities featuring capture points and choke points and guys running around and tanks.

    Company of Heroes 2: The British Forces it’s a well crafted DLC, in line with the quality of the other factions released by Relic in the past 24 months.

    There's a lot to enjoy here, and for newer players who need a little early help, (or for turtlers who prefer to hold on to what they have), the British Forces are a godsend.

    Fifteen new units, six commanders and eight maps seem little for the 13 € of this extension. However , if we translate them into possibilities, means much fresh air for an aging with dignity saga.

    A good standalone expansion with one new faction and 8 new maps. [11/2015, p.52]

    if you read a history a little more . you will see that the British Army couldn't defeat them without any help of USA & USSR .Then weif you read a history a little more . you will see that the British Army couldn't defeat them without any help of USA & USSR .Then we shouldn't see this fact of history as a week of this game. you have to look at game-play,visions , story tell,camp mods,buildings,unit.facility controls , and many options do we have in this game . i always fun with this series .

While the balance at the release could have been better, the british forcesThe British Forces is a great addon for an already great game. While the balance at the release could have been better, the british forces provide a very interesting new approach to gameplay.

    If you enjoy tense multiplayer matches in competetive match ups with a lot of innovative and realistic game mechanics such as suppression and cover systems, you are gonna love this game.

    At the end of the day there is no comparable RTS on the market right now.
    If you want to give it a try without any risk go to coh2.org and start watching some streams!

    Go and enjoy!

As of right now, it can't go head-to-head against OKW; British are actually UP as you will see when you play them. The emplacements are the key to this faction (in my opinion). Any other tactic I tried using ended in a complete loss but just seeing that bofurs chew up infantry was worth it. The anti-tank emplacement can take out many light vehicles w/ one shot! Would have loved to have seen more content given to current races along with this nickel+dime piece but not everyone can be like cdproject red! Hopefully, with mods, it balances out with current roster. I don't know if it's just me but the A.I for Brits is actually extremely good and setup emplacements strategically.
    Would not pay more than $10 for this one race. Wait for steam sale unless relic adds more content to all existing forces.

    The Brits are a little weak to be honest. True they can set up emplacements which are powerful, but Axis players are not that dumb. If thereThe Brits are a little weak to be honest. True they can set up emplacements which are powerful, but Axis players are not that dumb. If there was any wermacht players, you'd be sure they'll whip out mortars and the emplacements become sitting ducks =( Once the enemy tanks start rolling in it's pretty much bye bye to these emplacements. Brits shine when you play the game defensively, so you better hope you have a Soviet player on your side or else you're pretty much scr*wed. Because if you do decide to play offensively, the Brits does not have 1 heavy tank that can take on a German heavy. Not one... Hmm... You'll have to risk a few medium tanks to flank it. So at the end of the day, the fact of the matter is, you can keep the Axis at bay, but for how long exactly?

    The Brits are a nice addition to the game as it breathes some fresh new air into this somewhat old game. But as it stands, when it comes to Allies, the Soviets are still more powerful and Brits as a faction is rather weak tbh.

    Dev, keep telling yourself that this **** is balanced, like in CoH1
    When in fact all it takes to blow this lie is a single SQL statement.

    This series is completely dead, fallen to some sorta pure rip off, gg.
