    Men of War: Assault Squad 2 is just about the best multiplayer experience the World War II games have to offer. [June 2014]

    The newest expansion to Men of War demands tons of patience and some knowledge about military equipment. It's one of the biggest strengths of this product, but at the same time its biggest flaw (nobody likes a boring game, no matter the theme). The developers put lots of work into a strictly military aspect (weapons, ammo, multitasking, various difficulties) and it paid off - it is the essence of Assault Squad 2, you just have to like it very much.

    At 29 Euros, Men of War: Assault Squad 2 is a big bang for the bucks for those who didn’t buy the original game. Fans of the series, though, have all the reasons to complain for what’s more of a DLC than a truly new installment in the franchise.

    Men of War: Assault Squad 2 is a rich and compelling experience flawed by lack of real gameplay improvements.

    A great entry point to the series for those who have not played it before and also makes a solid addition to the collections of all longtime fans as long as they have even the faintest interest in playing with other humans rather than only the Artificial Intelligence.

    If you are a fan of the WW2 strategy game genre then I would highly recommend this game as the multiplayer holds many hours of entertainment. The biggest let down for the game is the single player. However, I found myself glued to the seat with such a strong multiplayer, and I can see many people enjoying it.

    When looking at SP. You're doing it wrong. Multi Player is one of the better things out there. And you'll find it a tonne more amusing.

    Io preferisco giocarlo in Single Player, con le sue tantissime MOD, GSM su tutte e sono arrivato oramai a 1.600 ore di gioco.

We played CoH in MP for a long time until we tryed out MoW:AS2 and then finally switched to it because its much more detailed and realistic. For large scaled WW2 battles with demanding micro management there is currently no other game that offers nearly an comparable experience. Expand

    A mediocre patch for Assault Squad labelled as a sequel. It was quite obvious from the start given how little change there was announced. NoA mediocre patch for Assault Squad labelled as a sequel. It was quite obvious from the start given how little change there was announced. No improvements to skirmish at all, most of the updates are geared towards pvp and leaderboards.

    If you are looking for a game against AI, don't bother all they did was rehash the old maps and game modes and and nothing meaningful to the game at all, the same pathetically limited set of units in player versus AI mode.

    This game has the biggest unit selection of any RTS and they are all locked behind badly design game modes and the "realism" excuse, no sandbox.

    I have been extremely disappointed in the unprofessional and, in my opinion, very underhanded treatment of the purchasers of Digital MindI have been extremely disappointed in the unprofessional and, in my opinion, very underhanded treatment of the purchasers of Digital Mind Soft's (DMS) Assault Squad 2 (AS2). The game had been advertised as a pre-order for a sequel to their first Assault Squad game with a lot of promised features. Myself and many other players purchased this pre-order under the assumption that DMS intended to meet this expectation. In order to be brief, DMS has fallen very short of their advertisement. They even went as far to change their game type from pre-order to "Early Access" when they failed to meet their release date twice. Suffice to say, we the customers are very upset and wish to share our disgust. The developers at DMS have chosen to bring on a community manager who makes it his business to completely remove any/all comments posted which even hints at disappointment in their decision to change the game to being "Early Access" at the last second. They have even began censoring all comments, reviews, or chat, that expresses any dissatisfaction in their product at all! Please take an administrative interest in the AS2 Steam forum. Like I said, many customers like myself feel that it is completely unethical for DMS to exercise this level of censorship. We are justified in being dissatisfied and have an obligation to voice this dissatisfaction to deter DMS from completely ostracizing the AS2 community. DMS is clearly showing a complete lack in ability to plan and execute the launch of their new product, including proper risk mitigation. It's a wonder that 1C can continue to support their fly-by-night software development practices. This game barely has all the features that the first game had and is extremely glitchy and unplayable. Stay away, you've been warned. Expand

The voice acting is still horrible, the AI, the explosions are the same as in AS1, which are bad. Graphics are the same, the performance is garbage too. This is so embarrassing, i dont even know how the developers can sleep after releasing such a piece of *** and they are asking $30 for it. They have no talent for videogames. Expand

    The game has been transformed in some kind of test ape for DMS future product: Call of Arms. Features, which have little or no benefit forThe game has been transformed in some kind of test ape for DMS future product: Call of Arms. Features, which have little or no benefit for MOW, are rushed in a pre-alpha status and they have completely broken the game. Many people can not start the game, most of the people are suffering frequently crashes. Finishing a 2v2+ game is impossible because of an apparantly unfixable out of sync error.

    After one year from release the game fundamentals, like stability and lag, are still broken and nothing let us think they will be fixed. I waited one year in the hope that items for which the game was sold would be fixed. But this is the status today:

    - steam integration (to start the game you have to deactivate steam overlay)
    - improved graphics ( maybe a little on some machine)
    - steam multiplayer (lags as hell)
    - matchmaking (does not connect and if it does it does not match)

    Half of the veteran community has been life banned on the forum for reporting problems. In the meantime DMS has abandoned the game, without fixing any issue and is focusing on Call to Arms.
