The Backwards Reviews of Company of Heroes 2

company of heroes 2 reviews

One of my most anticipated games of the year, Company of Heroes 2, is finally out, and it’s being met with some pretty good review. Well, the number at the end of the review is good, but if you actually read the review, it paints quite a different picture.

Despite the praise heaped upon the multiplayer of Company of Heroes 2, and the new Theater of War missions which work a lot like an RTS version of Modern Warfare 2’s Spec Ops mode, a lot of criticism is heaped on the campaign. I can’t quite speak on CoH 2’s campaign yet, but I find it odd that a review would focus on the negative aspects of a game and then spend a little bit of time talking about the good parts and give it a pretty good score. Check out the reviews below:

Now, I don’t want to seem like I’m criticizing, but if I’m going to give a game a high score I’d list the good things in detail instead of the bad parts. I’m still looking forward to trying out some Company of Heroes 2, but what about you guys? What do you think about these reviews? Are you going to give CoH 2 a try?

  1. 8/10 is a very good score to be giving a game that gets ripped to pieces for its campaign in those reviews. I feel it may be a score that the reviewer believes is correct but they are possibly being hyper critical of the campaign due to the run away review successes we’ve had this year (Bioshock/Last of Us) so feel obligated to be critical about something and not look like the are lumping praise on everything that comes out.

    I’m actually surprised they spent so long on the campaign, since when were RTS games known for their good campaigns? I’ll probably wait till it drops in price but these reviews don’t put me off in the slightest.
