Company of Heroes 2 pulled from shelves in Russia

Complaints about depictions of the Russian army have lead to some shops withdrawing it from sale.

For reasons that most people don't understand, the US media, press, entertainment (including Jewllywood) just don't like Russians, Ukrainians and Germans. I guess that's not something that's gonna change that easily until the European people of the United States take over their country and kick out those Khazar crypto Yahuds who own and run pretty much everything in that country back to Central Asia where they come from (Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan).

Isn't it fairly historically accurate though? I'm sure they did huge amounts of research and lets be honest, every nation committed some form of war crime during WW2.

I think it's more the idea that it's an American made game and that there was no acknowledgement of atrocities by the US in the first game.

Company of Heroes 2 has made headlines before due to showing the Russian army in a highly negative light.
So, basically the truth?

Given that Sega is a Japanese company, and given Japan's record during WWII, I'm sure they will take the depicting of a nation's atrocities seriously. Airbrushed history here we come...

I don't see why you people try to discourage konstantine from voicing his opinion?

It is the best entertainment available around here!

You can't make this stuff up! (See what I did there...)

You play as the Russians but instead of just making it colder and giving you different weapons they decided to depict the Russians as ruthless and mean. Troops are shot for retreating and several missions involve your troops being killed by their own side or left to be killed. All the while the story is told via cutscenes showing your character who has been imprisoned for standing up to these harsh tactics.

It's all based on stuff that actually happened but it's a bit heavy handed and feels particularly awkward given there was no acknowledgement of the sacrifices made by the allied side in the first game. Also, it doesn't half make the game grim and depressing.

Portrays soviet soldiers being send to fight without weapons...
Implements a very harsh Order 227 game model...
Includes several stereotypes...

From what I read.

I think they should pull it from sale just for being ****. I was a huge fan of relic and the original COH so this pile of dog poo is very disappointing.

The story and the themes of COH2 might be historically 'based' but they are clearly not a documentary style re-telling and maybe the tale of caution here is to remember that this is a game and not a history lesson.

Some of the review for COH2 hit the nail on the head when they say that the harsh depiction does little to make you feel for any of the characters in the story, when many consider the Russian army of the time the barely the lesser of the two evils.

Good article, but the opening title should read "A distributor has hit the brakes."
