Trivia

This title draws inspiration in some respects from the series Band of Brothers (2001). The title is in fact a direct quote from Richard D. Winters : "I cherish the memories of a question my grandson asked me the other day, when he said, 'Grandpa, were you a hero in the war?' Grandpa said, 'No, but I served in a company of heroes.'". The paratrooper unit also directly quotes from winters "we're paratroopers, we're supposed to be surrounded" See more »

One of the Ultimate RTS games of THIS time!
13 December 2006 | by reephamike-1See all my reviews

For the past few years the gaming industry have been trying to make world war 2 games as authentic and thrilling as possible.

A lot of World War 2 game fans have played Medal of Honor, Call of Duty and others likewise in First Person Shooter so you can experience the thrills and chills of the war, running and ducking for cover from MG42s, flanking German Tiger Tanks, suppressing fire on the enemy and best of all, fighting along side with comrades. However Company of Heros takes you out of First Person Shooter and takes you to an overview of your men, there you command them where to go and what to do.

This is the next step in computer intelligence where your troops takes cover in the nearest ditch, debri and trench that comes available to them. When you are launching assaults against the enemy you can devise strategies to fight the enemy like how you have done in the FPS games.

Company of Heros is a RTS game that will have a title in the history of the games industry as one of the most beautiful, cleverest and thrilling games of all times.
