Men of War: Assault Squad Review
By Joseph Gaskill
First off this game is for people who like to play multiplayer online and that love tactical realistic war games with the action of RTS. If you only like single player games and simple arcade type games don't get it. Also, I have played Company of Heroes and Men of War is way better. It's way more detailed, better graphics, way more realistic strategy and super engaging hartpounding gameplay. I've been playing games for 20 years, PC and Xbox, first person shooters, stratgy, role playing, sports games, you name it, and there are few experiences as good as a good game of 5 on 5 in Men of War Assault Squad. If you like Company of Heroes but want somthing more realistic and better, this is a must buy. I would give it five stars, except for the fact that there is no match making system so its hard to get in a game with other players of similar skill. Often you are playing with expert players and get killed (however, you have almost as much fun losing in this game as you do winning) and there are also a few user interface items that one can nit pick about too. This game takes about 50 to 100 games just to feel like your not a complete Noob, but it is really run trying out all the units and seeing what tactics work etc. It's like a big sand box with army men toys. Also, because the game is by some small developer in east Europe somewhere, it has not been widely marketed and the player pool is still relativly small compared to other bigger marketed titles, but it seems to be catching on and growing and you can always find a game. I read the negative reviews here and disagree fully. Most of the serious gamers and wargamers I know love this game and see it as a little heard of diamond in the rough.
