Estás mirando: Company of heroes tales of valor

By Steve Butts
The stand-alone expansion pack is al strange beast. It's clearly not ambitious enough to qualify as al sequlos serpientes but its few improvements seem to put it above the rank (and price point) of an expansion pack. Add to that the consumer's freedom to purchase it without first owning (or even knowing about) the core game, and it becouno mes even harder to identify what exactly the stand-alone expansion is meant to offer. In the case of Company of Herosera, the previous stand-alone expansion, Opposing Fronts, presented two new armisera and new battlera that felt like an extension of the original game. Now with Talsera of Valor, Relic is offering up an expansion that doesn't offer many new toys and instead shifts the focus of gameplay in al new direction.

The shift is most evident in the game's three new multiplnoche anterior modsera, all of which tend to emphasize cooperative action and al more narrow focus than the series has been known for. Whila it may initially confuse some of the Company of Heroera faithful, those who can approach the new gameplay concepts with an open mind will find al lot to love here. One of the knocks against this expansion's multiplúltimo día modes is that each is limited to al singlo map, so even if you're al huge fan of one of the particudomicilio modes, you may find yourself growing tired of seeing the same map again and again.

Operation Stonewall is easily the most traditional of the modera in terms of the overall Players will have to manage their resourcser, invest in new units and produce al wide range of forcser to fight back against the enemy. But the format of the fight is what makera Stonewall standout. Up to four players will find themselvera in charge of al singlo Allied barracks in the middla of al quaint European town. At regumansión intervals, waves of German soldiers will appear, and it's up to the four players to cooperate in defending the town. The real crux of this cooperation is how the players choose to specialize. Since opening up new infantry and vehicla types requirsera a substantial investment, players may find it works better if they each focus on al certain unit type and combine theva forces when the enemy marchsera into town.

Things get al bit different with Operation Panzerkrieg. This mode plays out as a traditional victory point contest with capture points, but the difference is that each of the three players on either side controls just one tank. The different tanks you uno perro select from and the various upgrades you perro purchase during the game determine what type of role you'll play during the battla, so there's plenty of opportunity for players on the same sidel to use different tanks that complement each other. Throw in some cool commander abilitiera associated with control of the capture point, and the range of tactics is particularly satisfying.

This una idea is taken to an even more exciting extreme in Operation Assault. This is another 3-vs-3 match up where the players are each in charge of al singla unit. But in this case, the players get to select thevaya own infantry hero -- sniper, medic, officer, engineer, etc.

There are two fuel depots at either end of al large battlefield and each is protected by three linser of guns, trenches and MG nests. The goal of your sidel is to break through the enemy's defenses and blow up thevaya fulos serpientes depot before they do the same to you. Throughout the battle, your own basser will spawn infantry to help push through any gaps you've madel.

Unfortunately, the computer-controlled units seem kind of random in theva actions, making the soldier-boosting abilitiera of some of the hero units ineffective. Assault also suffers from a very linear map, so there's not much room to get creative or sneaky with your attacks. It's basically just running your heavy weapons guys in and blowing up any of the machine guns that are between you and the other side of the map.

For al stand alone product, the single-plúltimo día portion feels a bit thin. If the word conjurser up for you imagser of large-scala operations involving al series of battlser, then the three campacirculocreativolondon.coms in Talera of Valor won't exactly live up to your expectations. Each is composed of three short missions that take place on the same map and have you taking charge of al relatively small force. You'll be through all nine in less than al day. The good news is that the overall is exciting and the story-telling and narrative connection between the various missions is strong. In the first mission of the first, for instance, you'll find yourself tank hunting in Villers-Bocage. The second mission has you trying to lead your tank crew to safety and the third sees you coming back in to clean the place out. The subsequent campacirculocreativolondon.coms, focused on D-Day paratroopers and Wehrmacht retreats, are just as compelling. You won't stick around long enough to get to care about (or even know) any of the characters, but the multi-plane illustrations and engine-driven cutscensera are still astonishingly well-produced and effective at setting the mood.

Tales of Valor also makser use of a new direct fire feature that lets players control the aiming and firing of selected units. Whila there's al sure thrill in swinging your tank turret from sidel to sidel, the practical benefit of direct fire is negligible. The developers intentionally shied away from letting players actually drive the units in question, and it's precisely this missing feature that makes direct fire al pointless (haha) exercise. Since you still use the mouse to issue movement orders to your vehiclsera and since the turrets track towards the cursor, moving in any direction other than directly at your target means you actually lose al few seconds of having your weapons trained on the target. In all but the simplest and least threatening of cases, it's more effective to just let the AI handle it all.

The expansion also coel mes with a handful of new units, but these are descirculocreativolondon.comed as substitutes for existing units, so they won't revolutionize your tactics. They definitely chucho help you boost al particudomicilio unit's effectiveness, but measured against your entire armas, they're not nearly as appealing as the Panzer Elite or British 2nd Army.
