Reviews & Mini-Views: Company of Heroes Collection
Company of Heroes Collection ($29.99)
When Feral Interactive surprised us with the Company of Heroes Collection for the Switch, it raised some eyebrows. The classic real-time strategy game makes its console debut, and the conversion is nothing short of excellent. However, it’s important to note that this may not be the ideal way to experience Company of Heroes. Let’s dive deeper into this review.
A Unique Control Scheme on Switch
Company of Heroes Collection on the Switch is priced at $29.99 and includes the base game along with the paid expansions: Opposing Fronts and Tales of Valor. If you’re new to real-time strategy games, this is a fantastic starting point. Keep in mind that the control scheme on the Switch is unique, setting it apart from other versions.
Controller Support and More
This Switch version only offers controller support, with no touchscreen functionality. Compared to the iOS version of Company of Heroes, which includes touch controls and keyboard/mouse gameplay, there’s a difference. However, this control option for the Switch has proven to be excellent, providing a comfortable middle ground for different control schemes.
A Visual Downgrade, But Still Impressive
While there is a visual downgrade compared to the higher-end iOS versions, Company of Heroes on the Switch still looks impressive. It might not be as sleek as the iPad Pro version, but the gameplay is smooth and enjoyable.
Future Multiplayer and Cross-Platform Support
It’s essential to know that the current release of the Company of Heroes Collection does not include multiplayer. However, this feature is planned for next year, along with cross-platform support for mobile and Switch. Even without multiplayer, there’s a wealth of content in this release, making it well worth the investment.
A Unique Portable Experience
If you’re seeking a portable gaming experience with controller support and have yet to try Company of Heroes, the Switch version is a superb choice. While the iPad remains the preferred portable platform, the Switch version offers an enjoyable gaming experience.
