You could almost say its like Dawn of War, but in a WWII setting.
Not alot of focus on basebuilding, and you can reinforce squads so you want to keep them alive.. you capture these map points (different ones brings in different resources) and so on, veichles can have their engines break down, gunners shot off, or go "out of control" which is pretty cool, a runaway tank plowing through brick walls etc..
It is pretty much a RTS tho, a action oriented one.

There is a hefty 1.8Gb demo to try out if you´re curios about it.
If you arent into RTS, it might not be for you tho.
Havent played that game you mention.

Soldiers Heroes of WWII was a great game. I got it for $7 shipped on eBay last summer and don't regret it one bit.

CoH, however, is a straight RTS with resource management (albeit a bit different due to its territory control scheme) with unit building, grouping, etc.

I bought the complete pack for $12.50 even tho I own the original and first expansion on D2D. I just like have everything in steam now. Its an excellent game if anyone hasn't played it. DX10 and all. Hopefully I'll have the time to play online this time. Also, the beta for Company of Heroes Online just started which is free to play, so I'm wondering if the online community will jump over there or if the games will integrate somehow

Terrible news:

Company Of Heroes Developer Killed In Car Accident


http://kotaku.com/5630790/company-of...n-car-accident

Quote:
Brian R. Wood, lead designer of Company of Heroes Online and a key player in the development of the series as a whole, was tragically killed on Friday night in an automobile accident north of Seattle.

Wood was behind the wheel of his Subaru Outback, with his wife Erin a passenger, when they were struck head-on by a Chevy Blazer driven by 21 year-old Jordyn B. Weichert. Two passengers in Weichert's car were killed, while it's alleged that the young driver was also under the influence of drugs at the time of the accident.

The Washington State Patrol say Weichert could be charged with vehicular homicide and vehicular assault once she is released from hospital, while another passenger in her car, 22 year-old Samantha R. Bowling, may also be charged with vehicular homicide.

Wood was 33. His wife, six months pregnant, is "hospitalized but in improving condition".

Our thoughts go out to Wood's family and everyone at Relic Entertainment.

Any one of us can die like that. You're driving down a two-lane highway and some intoxicated irresponsible teenager crosses the centerline. Terrible tragedy.

Quote:
Washington State Patrol spokesperson said Saturday that the driver of the Blazer, Jordyn B. Weichert, 21, of Oak Harbor, was believed to be under the influence of drugs at the time of the accident.

According to the spokesperson, the crash was triggered when Weichert decided to take off her sweater or jacket as she was driving north along the two-lane highway.

The remains of the crashed Blazer at the scene.Weichert's front-seat passenger, Samantha R. Bowling, 22, of Oak Harbor, held the steering wheel while Weichert removed the article of clothing, the State Patrol said.

During the maneuver, Bowling lost control of the Blazer. It swerved across the centerline, then back into its own lane as Bowling over-corrected, then back across the centerline, crashing into the Subaru, the State Patrol said.

Such a sad story.

The guy swerved the car to take the full blow of the incoming car, sacrificing his life for that of his wife and unborn child.

A true hero in my book.
