Company of Heroes: Gold - £3.74 on Steam

6y, 3m agoFound 6 years, 3 months ago
Delivering a visceral WWII gaming experience, Company of Heroes redefines real time strategy gaming by bringing the sacrifice of heroic soldiers, war-ravaged environments, and dynamic battlefields to life. Beginning with the D-Day Invasion of Normandy, players lead squads of Allied soldiers into battle against the German war machine through some of the most pivotal battles of WWII. Through a rich single player campaign, players experience the cinematic intensity and bravery of ordinary soldiers thrust into extraordinary events.

The Gold edition of Company of heroes includes both the original game and the Opposing Fronts expansion pack.

N.B. If you want the Tales of Valour expansion too, it's cheaper to buy it standalone on Steam than to get the complete pack.

rubbish non-intuitive game......spent ages trying to guess the controls then gave up
#3
Bargain for one of the best RTS on the PC
#4
I spent a fair amount of time trying to like this game, having heard it is great, whereas its really just a mix mash of (small) set pieces and not really a lot of excitement in it :-( shame as it does look good from initial views, might try and give it another shot. Good price though.
#5
Bought the Anthology version. It's a tough game to learn. You need time to invest in it to get the best out of it. I did try but gave up. Good price so hot but be warned. This isn't a game for the casual gamer.

Good Lord

This is your standard RTS point and click game their is nothing complex to the controls its all mouse menu based. Running the tutorial will cover the basic movement and instructions in about 10 minutes.

I blame the console generation today if you cannot waggle a WII stick at the game they lose interest in about 5 minutes. This is a great RTS game that requires a bit of thought to play and will test you mentally as a strategy game should not one for the WII stick waggle players :)

The controls consist of the left and right mouse button.

The thing that annoyed me the most was deaths of my men that were not my fault, the amount of times I try and click the damn squad into cover only for them to go where they feel like which is normally straight into heavy machine gun fire ! :| It all just seems a bit slow and a bit boring if you ask me. Didnt stop me buying opposing fronts though to finish off the collection lol !
#11
Excellent game but getting on a bit now. A "free" (read microtransactions) online version is in development currently.
#12
Good price put the game is mediocre at best , i bought it when it was new the graphics are nice but it stops there.

if you look at the colour of the icon above your guys heads, you'll see that they are in cover as a group, so one guy may be in front of a wall, but he's as equally protected as anyone in the squad, but when the squad as a whole lose HP, he'll die first.

Great game, but one that requires perseverance and efffort to play. most people can't get their head around the fact that infantry against anything = death, unless they have specific upgrades for their target.

When I bought this last night, it was actually cheaper to buy the Gold Pack and Forces of Valor separately than it was to buy the Anthology. Since then, it seems like they've removed the Forces of Valor add-on as an individual item to be purchased.

Fantastic, was thinking of picking this up.

If you mean Tales Of Valour, appears to still be linked to on the front page:

http://store.steampowered.com/app/20540/

And yep, cheaper for that and the advertised pack rather than the Anthology, saving £1.26 :D

That's the one. If it saves people £1.26 then my work here is done!

Not that demanding, just uses a beefed up version of the DoW engine besides I''ve got an ION gpu ;)


Isnt the ion about equal to the laptop x1400? It cant really play DoW properly even before the beefing
#22
Good games, absolute bargain at this price. If you can handle C&C then you can handle this, so you can safely ignore anyone saying it's too complicated etc. Bought the two last time they were on offer and have just added Tales of Valo(u)r. It's not supposed to be as good as the others but, as someone else mentioned, it adds some bits to the multiplayer.
#23
This is still one of my most regularly played games, those who say the controls are difficult .. wtf ?

Simple strategic gaming, learn what the units do, and what they are best against see how your opponant is rolling then act accordingly.

Anyway great price, for a brilliant game.
banned#24
great game, sadly though, in my opinion, it was a bit boring overall. better buying a command and conquer game..

Not sure about x1400 but I can play DoW fine with the ION. I can overclock the cpu to 2.2ghz and the ION too so theres plenty of scope, will be trying CoH tonight

Good game, and obviously worth £3.74
#27
Good game - great price. Tough though; apart from the first couple of missions you'll find yourself restarting quite a bit. This is an old-school game, where it's actually quite difficult to progress. Games which have a console port don't seem to have any difficulty, and the player is hand-held through the entire experience. Here you actually feel a sense of achievement when you complete a mission. Rant over.
#28
I have the anthology CD version with the retail codes (as yet unused).
Does anyone know if I buy COH for £1.74 in steam whether I add in my codes to COH and therefore have a Steam version of all three?
(I'd prefer steam as it does all the patching for me)

I don't think you even need to to buy it again online. You can enter the CD key online and if it's genuine, you will then have access to the games via Steam as well as your hard copies. This is certainly what I did with Half-Life 2: bought the retail version, registered it online with Steam and then bought the Episode Packs via Steam when they were released. Although they were bought differently, I can download all of them through Steam; not just the ones bought through Steam.

Absolute bargain at this price, already got this a while back. It can be tricky to get to grips at first but is a quality game, hot!
#31
Thanks.
Can anyone confirm whether I can reuse my COH and COH:OF DVD games codes if I buy one of the steam games (e.g. Tales of Valor) to activate the other two on steam?

A great find and a genuine saving! We've featured this on Dealspwn, HUKD's gaming blog.

Isn't this the question I just answered for you?

Sort of, I was asking whether I could buy the last TOV standalone expansion and then apply the COH and OF CD/DVD codes to it, rather than applying TOV and OF to the first COH game.
