I was a beta tester of this game as well. This game rocks. I preordered it as well. I don't know about the single player, but the multi player was awesome. Even though i had my ass handed to me 90% of the time.
I don't think this game will please everyone, but it will be at least as good as Company of Heroes was, if not better. Although i don't think it will have as strong of a story as CoH had, but i usually don't care much about the story line anyways.
