Can you zoom out a little further than in original DOW? I hated how close the camera was all the time in that game.

This is the default, can go out a little further but not by much
Still can get a pretty decent view of what's going on in larger skirmishes, and stays close enough to get a quick idea of what cover works how well at a glance

I was really excited about this but it got a fairly poor review in UK PC Gamer; they said the single player was really repetitive and a bit boring and seeing as I don't play MP i'm not that interested now.

Already preordered. I haven't got much time to play these particular weeks because of my studies, but it's the creators of Company of Heroes, so it basically cannot fail

I hope the SP campaign will be good, which is my interest. MP, not getting so good responses...

Been having a great time with the mp so far, and from the looks of the day0 patch notes will still be just as enjoyable in the retail version.

IGN gave it a 9.0 (with 9.5 for the graphics)

It's now available on Steam, the night before retail (for once).

Downloading...

Amazing presentation, menus, graphics, etc...

Single-player gameplay seems good so far, though very simple early on. I love the leveling system and that alone will probably keep me playing this game forever. Finding new equipment and building a character... awesomesauce.

Game crashed on me no matter what on "ultra settings." I put them down to "high" and turned off Physx and the game ran great.

Awesome to hear back, yea I didn't know there were RPG elements in this, that definitly makes up for no base building!!!

Looking forward to this game!

I love the interface... I seriously am in awe of whoever designed it. Little things like that can make a game feel so much more polished. Look at this interface, seriously:



Rest of the game is just as polished. The RPG elements are really awesome. It almost feels like a Baldur's Gate style game, even though it isn't. The 3rd level's boss fight and subsequent loot really made me feel like I was playing an RPG. Great stuff.

Nope. Not my kind of game at all. If I'm living under a rock for not playing games like this, I'll just stay there (as long as I can pull my computer in there with me).
