"F*@#ing Wankers" - COH Addon 

Well, lookie what's gone up on Eurogamer just this minute - it's my review of Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts, the standalone expansion for what was anyone with a brain's RTS of 2006. Or, arguably, ever.

I could easily have done a Gillen'n'Boiling Point and given this multiple scores. One for Joe Ooh-I-Like-Tanks-Public, one for established RTS fans and one for people who really, really dig Company of Heroes. It was a tough decision, but I think I hit the right compromise.

Oh, and here's a quote in case it helps you summon the extra reserves of energy you need to click through to the review.

I can't tell you how relieved I am to not hear some hackneyed "Jolly good, let's go show them what-for, what? Fnarr Fnarr" soundbyte when I select a unit. "Let's show these F*@#ING WANKERS!", bellowed with the full, furious force of a beefy cabbie who's just been dinged by a scrawny, bug-eyed tracksuit kid in a Ford Escort, really puts the spirit of war into me.

See? There's swearing in it, so you'd defintely better go and look now.
