Company of Heroes...

Company of Heroes is a historical strategy game set during the World War 2. The main campaign focus mainly on American operations such as The Battle of Normandy where player must guide a small army to battle with the Axis forces.

Factions in the game:
There are only 2 factions in the game, the Axis (German) and Allied (America).
Axis: strong tanks and defense system.
Allied: versatile and fast moving.

Gameplay: Like any typical RTS game, player must build a base, then gather resources and annihilate your enemies. In Company of Heroes, player gather resources by capturing strategic points and ammunition points, much like the resource gathering system in the Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War series. The player can choose between the 2 modes in the skirmish game, Annihilation (Player must eliminate all of the enemies) and Victory Point Control (Player must capture the strategic points on the map to win the game) ...The A.I of the game can be describe as "cunning" and challenging. They often attack the places which are left unguarded and tend to surround your army and destory them.... 9.2/10

Graphics: The graphic of the game is simply awesome, with fully destructable environment, adding a much more realistic gameplay. The units, tanks, structures and effects (gun battle anfd explosions) are designed and created in full details. 9.4/10

Audio The sound effects are quite good but not that unique.... 7.5/10

Verdict: Company of Heroes is simply one of best RTS game alongside with Command and Conquer Series, Blizzard's Starcraft and Warcraft Series as well as Warhammer 40k series. ...9.5/10
