The original Company of Heroes is a pretty good RTS game. In fact, it’s pretty darn awesome. Released in 2006, it’s difficult to this day to find another game in the genre that’s its equal.
But is it still the best of its kind available today? Company of Heroes designer, and Company of Heroes 2 game director, Quinn Duffy is of the opinion that the original yet still yet to be matched.
“If you look on GameRankings or MetaCritic, we’re way up there,” Duffy told IncGamers. “I don’t know if that game has been superseded. It had a combination of gameplay, audio and attention to detail that really added up and created a compelling experience.
“In my opinion, I don’t think that has been matched. I play a game of Company of Heroes and I’m exhausted. It’s an experience and I haven’t experienced that in another RTS game. There have been some other great games, but the full blend of elements… I haven’t seen that. We’re getting to that level in Company of Heroes 2.”
