Company of Heroes redefines the traditional WWII game as a strategy, but then redefines strategy by adding both the elements of Age of Empires or Command and Conquer (building a city and units) as well as the role playing of a Total War battle where you can command an army of units. The game is viewed in an angled birds eye view just like that of Command and Conquer or Age of Empires. It has the most brilliant graphics, sound and gameplay, but provided that you have the crazy graphics and processor requirements. The best thing about this game is its realism, not just that of the graphics, but the gameplay. For instance infantry units cannot hamr tanks or heavy vehicles with their guns and infantry also take for cover when under fire. Company of Heroes is extremely realistic and one of the best strategy games there is.
