Company of Heroes – Legacy Edition Concept 4/5
You lead troops that in the beginning land in Normandy. The main goal is to get an advantage on the Western front and kill bloodthirsty blackshirts, taking part in key battles. The single-player campaign will carry you to those times, showing horrors of the war.
Each person can think up his or her own strategy that may be either aggressive or surreptitious. Sometimes it will be necessary to sacrifice important troops to fulfill a big plan that further will hand a victory. The player needs not only to direct soldiers, but also to control the most important resources. There also presents a possibility to develop troops and gears.
You’ll have a large arsenal of weapons in hand. It includes dissimilar rifles, pistols, mortars, and bomb-throwers. Among other things, you’ll be able to use armored fighting and off-road vehicles that will make combats more energetic.
Americans have got three military branches: infantry, assault and armored forces. Only you will decide what troops you would like to command and what weapons to give to soldiers. After the death of the followers, the player can collect remaining guns.
Visual Effects 3/5
In our Company of Heroes – Legacy Edition Review, we would say that graphics in the games reminds of «good old days». The game was released in 2006, and for those times visual effects were innovative. Even today it doesn’t look bad, but shapes of armors seem to be simple, there are not many details, and textures went out of date. The animation is done well, and the interface is user-friendly.
Audio Effects 5/5
Audio in the game makes you plunge into the atmosphere of the war. Sounds of shooting, driving and live throwing greet from all sides. You always hear followers’ reports out of walkie-talkies that are interrupted by blanking. If the headphones are attached, it impresses unusually strong.
In RTS games it is always necessary to use many buttons, and CoF isn’t an exception. If default settings don’t fit your style of playing, you can change them. Controls in the game are smooth, there usually don’t appear any problems with them. Using hotkeys meaningfully raises chances of success. Cursor control of the game slows down the process, and troops begin to die.
Replay Value 5/5
Availability of multiplayer makes this game highly replayable. There can gather from 2 to 8 people and combat with each other for key positions. You and your friends may get new ranks, and due to it, you’ll have the motivation to compete. It’s also entertaining to go through single campaigns over and over, choosing new strategies and tactics. You may use other weapons or develop special forces and see the game in a new light.
Company of Heroes – Legacy Edition shows important historical time, and lets you be a part of it. Choosing soldiers, buying weapons, commanding the troops during various battles, the player helps to win the war. It depends on him or her how many resources it will be used and how many people will die. Download Company of Heroes – Legacy Edition and show that you are a great leader!
