    I sold my hard copies and re-bought on Steam for this exact reason! Thoroughly enjoyed it after that :D

    Hopefully the second won't be quite so messy :p

    You have just made my day if this is true.

    Loved COH, Opposing Fronts and Tales of Valor.

    Gerard, persevere with it!! its worth it. Look up the "Blitzkrieg Mod". Loads of new vehicles, units etc.


    COH2, yeh!!!!!!!!!!! WOOP

    OMG OMG!! I heard they were working on something.

    I've been playing a good mod called 'eastern front' and highly recommend.

    It will be very interesting to see what they add to this game :D

    Ill post some key features:
    Set in the beginning of 1941, the players role will take him from the defense of stalingrad to the victory at berlin.
    Graphics look amazing the soldiers look just as good as they do in other ww2 firstperson shooters.
    Realistic snow, tank treads make realistic marks, also tanks can get bogged down in snow drifts.
    Snow melts Eg: a soldier with a flamethrower burns a farmhouse the snow on the roof melts and makes the roof fallin.
    You can vault over fences.
    New Feature called "True Sight" You can only see what your units see.
    More advanced covering system...thats all it says about that.

    Oh wow, this would be fantastic.

    Fingers crossed for a Pacific Theatre, there is so much they could do with a Japanese faction, kamikaze, infantry only, etc. Some nice lush jungle landscapes would be amazing. Am going to keep an ear to the ground about this.
