Jun 21, 2012The entire Men of War series is an unrealized diamond in the rough. The premise is great, but the execution is severely flawed. Controls and User Interface is most wanting, and anything more than two squads and the gamer is basically swamped. Line of Sight, while a very interesting proposition is poorly implemented due to the typical atrocious AI.
This could have been one of the better or best ww2 squad based action rts out there, but it fails fairly miserably due to poorly implemented basics.
Veterans of the game may say otherwise, but if you're a newbie to the genre, there are better offerings out there like Relic's Company of Heroes. If you're a sucker for punishment, then try one of the many Men of War iterations. However, stay clear away from Men of War Vietnam, as that is the worst of the entire franchise.… Full Review »
Apr 23, 2012Very hard, but if you're willing to dedicate time to it then it's a great game. And they also included multiplayer, but even if it is only 4 maps and 2 gamemodes I don't care, because I played AS for the single player so I don't find that a sad loss. But the singleplayer is great, and it will take you a while. Overall, good for fans of the series but newcomers should try out AS first. If the single player is difficult on easy for you, then STAY AWAY from the singleplayer. It is very hard! Also, the game states that the men must not be called 'cannon fodder', GAMESPOT, as it is insulting those men who were killed in battle.… Full Review »
May 24, 2013Not even comparable to Men of War: Assault Squad. Just plays like a broken record of bad boring small team missions. I stopped playing this after a few hours of realizing I just wasted my money. I'll give it a one rating since there were no technical issues. I recommend Assault Squad if you are looking for a Men of War game.… Full Review »
