Set during World War II Company of Heroes allows players to command their own military units. Requiring players to carefully manage their supply lines of manpower, munitions and fuel while taking control of key map locations the game successfully captures the style of warfare that was utilised in World War II.

In addition to careful resource management Company of Heroes encouraged players to strategically upgrade their squads and consider the most effective use of vehicles and buildings in order to be successful in each mission.

With the range of combat units and special abilities that these squads unlock with upgrades the strategic military depth of Company of Heroes made it a fan favourite for strategy gamers, in particular those that prefer a modern era title over the historical, space or fantasy settings.
