Default Company of Heroes Complete Pack worth it?

Only played the original. Are these expansion packs good?

I haven't had a chance to play Tales of Valor yet, but the other one is good. I'd wait for it to hit 30 and then jump on it.

Personally I did not enjoy it

I have the original one. Its just to clunky for me. If there was a pause button I would like alot more.

Funny how they call it a pack as if it comes in a box.

The original and opposing fronts expansion was fun if your into RTS games. I haven't played the new expansion Tales of Valor yet but I heard its terrible.

For MP or SP? I'm pretty sure if you bring up the menu in SP it pauses the game.

Just pausing normally. Having to select it under fire makes it very awkard and detracts from the enjoyment.

Also I found it really clumsy. Like on the beach, they would run around like d1cks and would not lob grenades properly etc. I should give it another try at some point, but it failed to capture my interest the first time round.
