These several days I played the game "Codename Panzer: Phrase 1". I wanted my RTS fix, and my computer's so totally not up to the newer RTSs, thus I obtained this game.
Anyways, the game has a lot of the features of Company of Heroes. Things like side/back armor is weaker, mines, experience, etc. It also reminds me of Call of Duty amongst other things, probably due to the campaign style and several oddly similar maps/names (I thought there was a guy call Barnes in CoD, and the Caen-canal map was really similar). Anyways, its a great game, albeit some realism here and there mostly due to the weak weapons and really short artillery range.
Anyways, 3 things hurted it - gamespy, starforce, and bad marketing. Buy anyhow, its far more fun than AoE3 at any rate.
