It's a cracker of a game...bargain price
on 7 September 2012
Played the original COH some years back, and well kept coming back to it more often than I expected to (multiplayer esp but even skirmish)
This all in one adds the expansion packs to the original making more units available and opening up many more maps and multiplayer options.
As a one player game COH is fun, either in campaign or skirmish mode, but really comes into it's own in multiplayer either networked or online.
I bought 2 of these one for me and one for my son and we've had a great time playing against each other or in a co-op skirmish, mix in the new units, and online play and this is a game you'll still be playing years down the road.
Graphics have had a boost over the original game, and it scales well to a variety of hardware even non gaming pc's should be able to play it on reasonble settings. This is probably one of the better RTS games and whilst others have tried different twists (men of war quite good too) this seems to be the one you come back to. A new COH 2 is due next year, but in the meantime you should almost certainly check this out to keep you busy until then. Even if you have the original game, this is well worth a look. A classic in every way blending strategy, ease of use, enough depth to please a variety of player, and that feeling you can turn the tide even if you are losing the battle is something very few RTS games have managed to pull off effectively. But most of all it's fun..and great fun at that.
Just an update, since I bought the game THQ took a dive and went under, the game developer was sold to Sega (it has a strong following online) the online playing is now via steam (not sure if newer boxed version are updated to refelect this) Steam will accept your THQ serial and allow you to download it and play online.
