Although World War II might have officially ended September 2nd 1945, millions of people are still fighting it out everyday on virtual battlefields. Video game series like Call of Duty, Medal of Honor and Commandos have all enjoyed phenomenal success by depicting the most memorable and infamous moments during the war. Invading Normandy on D-Day through the eyes of a solider is an exhilarating experience that can only be relived via these different games. However, one thing that is rarely represented in most World War II series is the strategic finesse required to win battles against overwhelming odds. While the Commandoes franchise does necessitate tactics and strategy, it’s only on a small scale since you never end up controlling more than four or five men at a time. But all that was about to change when the Relic Entertainment unveiled the revolutionary World War II based RTS game called Company of Heroes.
