Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts review

We get tanked up in this stand-alone expansion of the epic RTS

Another quibble lies with the lack of proactive attacks from the opposition, which often feels somewhat stagnant: a problem given that Opposing Fronts is a territory-based game. With your foes rarely venturing out of their comfort zones to retake the territory you’ve just prized out of their grasp, victory can sometimes feel rather inevitable.

Conversely, some other missions are too taxing. Throw in some suspect pathfinding and the fact that troops often ignore your commands to take cover, instead opting to run into the open and get pumped full of lead, and you’re left with an unbalanced and unpolished experience.
