Game Informer Rating:

Rated 7.5 out of 10 by Game Informer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great game, hardcore players preferred this is a really great in-depth strategic game revolving around world war II. It is especially great due to the factions in the game and the units available to each faction. This allows for a good bit of variation in the game. Although, i must say, i am not to fond of the games skill level (as it is meant for good gamers). I mean, you don't need to be really good at games to play it and still have a lot of fun, but it ws probably made for more better gamers in mind. If you do hapen to get into it, it can start getting really fun though, and it has a great multiplayer matchmaking system to keep things interesting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A great game, but an okay expansion Company of Heroes is a great game. It is without a doubt the most realistic and entertaining WWII RTS game out there. However, Tales of Valor did not offer much. It came with three new campaigns, and three new game modes. Not worth the 30 bucks it was released as. Luckily I bought it for only 8 bucks when it was on sale at my local Gamestop, so I could critique it without spending too much. If I were to rate Company of Heroes as a whole, I would give it a 10/10. However, if I were to rate Tales of Valor, I would give it a 6/10. I do recommend this game, however if you buy this expansion, make sure you don't blow anymore than 10 bucks on it wherever you may find it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice units...not much substance So this expansion gets rave reviews. No way, this was not worth $30 unless you're into online gaming. It adds new maps and new units. Some of which are really awesome, but the amount of substance and work put into the new campaigns is laughable at best. The three new campaigns are extremely easy, and can be completed in about 30 minutes each, not the mission the whole campaign. Anyway I was disappointed after playing the other campaigns from previous expansions and expected something equal to those in substance, sadly this is not the case with this expansion. I expect expansions to carry a lot more re-playability than this one offers, even the intro movies are generic at best, granted I don't really gauge a game by that, but this has so many shortfalls you tend to look at the whole thing as some attempt to throw an expansion together as fast a possible to generate revenue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Realism, Storyline, and Fun – What more can you ask for? I have ill-spent hundreds of dollars on similar WWII strategy games. Company of Heroes (COH) is by far the best I have ever seen. That being said, their expansions have no let downs – not like other games. For one, Tales of Valor is independent from the original – and their other expansion “Opposing Fronts”. Not just the single player gaming – but the online multiplayer too – it’s a huge plus, especially if you don’t have ~60 bucks on you. Second, when they say “expansion” – they mean it! You are getting what you pay for, and although it may seem cheaper than other brand new games – but I would most decently pay more if need be. Next, Tales of Valor gives you a new, interesting perk into the high quality game play – which the other expansions don’t have. This “perk” is the ability to aim your specified units. Now – I know other games allow you to do this also –but Tales of Valor has gone about it in a more appealing way. If you plan to buy a Company of Heroes game for the first time, I don’t recommend Tales of Valor. This expansion gives a different look into COH than the originals – don’t get me wrong is a beautiful add on – and I am in high appraisal of it, but to get the full COH experience – get the original and Opposing Fronts expansion in the Gold Edition. In general, if your computer can handle it – the detail of this game is amazing! You sit there surveying the battlefield from a 3rd person view – and with a swipe of your mouse wheel, you’re in a First Person Shooter (FPS). Although I am not much of a story line guru, I really enjoyed the 3 campaigns that came with Tales of Valor, and even more appealing: the whole series. The controls are easy, navigation is simplistic, even downloading patches – couldn’t be any easier, it’s all done automatically… One of the biggest reasons I love the COH series, is because of the realism. There is no other WWII strategy game the even comes close to the amount of realism that COH provides. Weapons, vehicles, damage, maps, terrain, reactions, explosions….all though not 100% accurate – again, the best you will find! In conclusion, buy Company of Heroes Gold Edition – which includes both the Original and Opposing Fronts for the same amount – if you like it, I highly suggest Tales of Valor, it adds multiple new extras here and there for your overall enjoyment. For those who already own COH, Tales of Valor is definitely worth the money – you will get more than you expect from it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ok, but not amazing This game definitely is a good buy, ever since the first Company of Heroes was released I was hooked, however in this expansion pack, they released several new maps, some of which are user-created. There are also some new units that can be used in place of old ones and the units are somewhat better than the ones they replace. The story line is really good, but quick and short, there is little to be played. Graphics are still amazing and jaw-dropping! Several new multi-player modes are at your disposal yet all the modes are very challenging and are not really that fun. The original online gameplay is still in place and in my opinion is the best way to play online. There also appears to be a new online rating system: skirmish. In here, I noticed that the AI is ten times more difficult and they seem to have the better advantage over your teams no matter how good you are at the game!! My friends and I are really experienced at this game and 3 of us playing 1 medium got so hard, its like the medium AI is now experts... So, in conclusion, the game is a good buy for someone who never owned the game, if you already own the game, just download the patch, unless you want the 12 or so new units and multiplayer modes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Game for a Low Price Company of Heroes is an overall great franchise which has allowed for a solid strategy game that involves true tactics. Tales of Valor augments some fresh new game types and maps to help keep old players hooked and new playersmore to get hooked on. Despite the system requirements stressing most non-gaming pc's, the game can run on a lower end comp with the right settings. The new units offer better tactical options for each army as well as the three new short campaigns offering a rewarding experience. Some cons although are the much anticipated new armies, which made no appearence. Most would agree that the Italians and Russians would have made a good addition, but Relic still has room for one more expansion in my opinion. An otherwise great lineup of maps have been cut in half (Origianally 18 new maps were revealed to be included. ToV only ships with about 9). For the thirty dollar price tag, this game is a great addition to the series, and a great standalone for newcomers.
