Again, the overall reception to each new release has been less positive than for prior releases. Reasons for this are open to interpretation, but something hasn't been "as good" as before. IMO, Opposing Fronts was OK, but over-priced and little improved. If Tales of Valor was an experiment, I fear it was a failed one....which doesn't give much support for a CoH2.

For the record, I wouldn't mind seeing a CoH2 as my hope in the MoW franchise has pretty much faded completely....

Company of Heroes was great fun, on all levels, I played multiplayer for a bit.

I'd love Close Combat on this engine instead though...

CoH 2 has been announced. Eastern Front! New graphics engine. Sounds awesome.

I need some help with CoH. I'd love to reinstall it on my PC but the patching takes FOREVER when I do the autoupdate. I have to download probably 30 patches one by one to get it all up to date. Is there an easier way to do this, in one giant megapatch from the disc retail version?

Yeah I hated the patch dance after each new OS reinstall... I finally just picked up a copy of COH on Steam during some 80% off sale last year so I wouldn't have to redo the dance ever again.

I picked up the Steam version as well along with the first expansion pack. I held off on the other update I heard it wasn't as good? Anyone ever play it? Goodbye patch dance! Started the campaign over again. Damn Red Ball Express mission has me stuck again. I don't know how I beat it last time haha.

CoH 2 has a few posts on their facebook page, if your a fan of this series I'd recommend following it. No doubt it will be amazing.

I played them all, and as I noted before - I found both expansions to be over-priced and little-improved, but I also paid something like $19 bucks for each. To be perfectly honest tho, I don't think I would have felt much better if I'd paid only $3 for them. Just my opinion, but I didn't think there was enough here to warrant any cost.

As far as your "No doubt it will be amazing." comment - I have my doubts. For starters, the current THQ situation might force a rushed release and rushed releases are almost always a bad thing. I've also got some dislikes about the current CoH which very possibly might not get addressed in CoH2. That said, I sincerely hope I am pleasantly surprised. There's certainly no doubt it will look awesome (Relic games always do) but will it deliver on the promised enhanced strategy and tactics......one can only hope.
