    It can be tough for developers to make sequels to best-selling games. Vary the formula too much and people will complain about you moving too far from what the game is about. Don't change things and people will moan that you've produced an overpriced expansion rather than a new title.

    For Company of Heroes 2, Relic's sequel to their very popular 2006 strategy game, they've gone conservative. The shift in focus and time means new sides - the Russians and the German armies of the eastern front - but the improvements over the first game are modest. The graphics are better, but not as improved as you might expect given the seven-year wait for this game. This is less of a dig at Company of Heroes 2 (which is still the best-looking strategy game in existence, at least until Total War: Rome II launches in September) and more of a reflection of how astonishingly far ahead of its time Company of Heroes was in 2006. The sound is a lot better, with booming explosions and realistic machine gun noises, a lot of them sampled from the genuine weapons. Sound design isn't usually something that stands out in games, but Company of Heroes 2's is simply the best I've ever encountered in a game.

    In terms of gameplay, things proceed much as before. The battlefield consists of a home zone for each team and a patchwork of territorial zones in between. By capturing territory you boost your resources and can summon new troops to the battlefield more quickly, as well as unlocking fresh abilities through combat. Units gain experience in battle, becoming more accurate or tougher, and so does the commander, unlocking abilities such as recon planes, artillery bombardments or air strikes.

    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
    The eastern front may or may not be where WW2 was won, but it is certainly where WW2 was lost: after Stalingrad and Kursk it wasn't that Germany still thought they could win that kept them going, it was the belief that they could get better terms than unconditional surrender. The eastern front was also brutal: less Allies were killed in combat by Germany on the Western front than Russians were shot for desertion by their own army in the East. On the German side, one of the biggest failures of the German strategy was that they could never bring themselves to tactical retreat, thus signing the death warrant of millions of men.

    The eastern front was also a more varied area of operations than the Western front: you had the open plains of the Ukraine, the massive tank battles of Kursk, to the street-to-street fighting of Stalingrad, along with drastic seasonal changes. And of course, in such a huge front the railways were the most fought over thing, because they were crucial to either side.

    And yet, Company of Heroes 2 doesn't feel that different from the original. There's better graphics (although they only look better compared to COH1 - compared to modern competing titles, they are better described as merely 'current gen'), and be aware that COH2 seriously underestimates your hardware - you only need about 30fps average in an RTS rather than 60fps, but COH will drop your settings right down unless you manually take control and give yourself better quality - and it even sets 'medium' quality on both a 6 year old and a pretty fast current machine (see my computer specs at the end of the review).

    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    It has been 7 years since the release of the original Company of Heroes - one of the most favoured RTS games of all time on the PC. So the sequel, Company of Heroes 2 had an awful lot to live up. Well did it do so? Kind of..and I'll give my opinions as to why in this review.

    First thing to take note of is the game is divided into 3 core sections: Campaign, Multiplayer and Theatre of War

    The Campaign:

    Away has the focus gone from the over done to death, Western front of the Second World War, and Relic now turns it's eye towards the savage, gritty Eastern front. It does so pretty well actually, capturing the brutal, desperate moments that the Russians had to embark upon to defend their homelands from Hitler's ambitions.
    The Campaign will probably take the average player, depending on the difficulty, around 9-12 hours, and for the most part it is an enjoyable, immersing experience.
    You take part in historic battles such as Stalingrad and take part of 'scorched earth' tactics in order to delay the German advance.
    All these missions are pretty well done, but I can't help but think the lack of morals from Russian Officers is slightly over exaggerated in the cutscenes and in game - it actually gets slightly annoying at times when all you hear every couple of minutes is a reminder that 'Retreat is not acceptable, it is punishable by death..' etc etc. Although it may be true it can feel rather forced.
    However, I suppose this is a rather minor niggle, and overall you can learn an awful lot Historically about the Eastern front, whilst having a pretty good time also. You can tell the team at Relic spent a lot of time digging through Historical Data!
