The story was so much better and you really felt apart of the battle in COH.

CoH. WiC was an ok game but I wasn't crazy about the graphical presentation.

Company of heroes by a mile. It's actually the only strategy game I've ever finished, and liked.

Oh my. LOL. I thought everbody would say WiC. IMO I thought the story line in WiC was one of the most well played out and dramatic story lines ever. Probably because I didnt get that far in in CoH.

COH because I actually played some of it, as opposed to none of WIC.

Both are good but both are far different. There is no base building in WiC but there is in COH. The story is good on both sides but I still don't like the entire story of the US side that some how they beat back the Russians but in reality they would have most likely lost. Anyways I like the game play far better in COH. There is MUCH more strategy in an online battle in COH then WiC. Both have good graphics but smoke is far better in WiC. If WiC had the cover system and chance system of COH then it probably would be a better game although I really hate the helicopter part because it is supremely unrealistic.

world in conflict had some interesting visuals and special abilities but company of heroes had an easy interface that is very well presented. Such like the shield bonus/penalty icons when your cursor highlights a type of terrain. Not sure about the online community for World in Conflict but COH has a healthy population. It's just a damn shame that most experienced players kick you out of their games or spend the entire game insulting your decisions rather than trying to work with you.

If you're new to COH I'd suggest automatch in pairs and try joining a small forum to find some partners.
