Video Review 3: Tales of Valor

I finally made some time to get another video review done and uploaded to our YouTube channel, this time for "Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor". Since my "Grand Theft Auto IV" Video Review, I have purchased a new Samson C03U Multi-pattern condenser microphone, so the audio quality should be much better this time around. I also wanted to have a good mic in case we ever decide to do a podcast. We’ve thought about doing a weekly news recap but we’re not sure yet.

I decided to start out this review with a clip from the "Causeway" single-player campaign, because numbers are really one of the main problems. Fighting with just one or two units that are super powerful just didn’t seem right for this series and the $30 price point seems much too high for what you get.

    If you like WW2 games you may want to check out “Men Of War” it's not as polished as CoH, but with a true to life physics system, it has a lot of things CoH lacks..

    My experience with the multiplayer community is limited at best, but the few times you manage to find a server with good ping and english players (english players is the hardest to find) It can be extremly fun.

    There is no base building involved, at all. instead, you have a force and you have to make due with it.

    Theres a Mod out called Dynamic campaign generator, which is basically like an advanced skirmish mode over a longer period of time, since the game lacks a regular skirmish mode (sadly, but is supposedly one of the main features in an expansion that is being worked on atm)

    I highly recommend you try out Men of War with the mod I spoke about,
