Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts review

  • Core gameplay mechanics
  • New distinctly different factions
  • Two new campaigns
  • Somewhat unpolished
  • Weak plot
  • Missions can be taxing

Some of Opposing Front’s missions are persistent, meaning that the destruction you inflict on the scenery carries over to the next mission (if it’s based on the same patch of land), although admittedly these can sometimes feel like developmental short cuts rather than masterstrokes of innovation (i.e. just another section of the previous level getting opened up).

Opposing Fronts provides a decent, frenetic and entertaining stopgap between the original game and the inevitable sequel. While it has its fair share of hiccups, the game’s fundamental quality manages to shine through and ensure that there’s plenty of entertainment to be had.
