About This Game

Men of War: Condemned Heroes tells the story of one of the infamous Soviet penal battalions during the WWII. These battalions are famous for being formed under Stalin’s "No step back!" order #227. They consisted of court-martialed officers that were given a chance to redeem their crimes, or incompetence, in blood by serving as the lowest enlisted rank in a battalion that was assigned the most dangerous tasks. These battalions’ images are surrounded by many myths, and this game tells the truth about these regiments based on real evidence from their former members.
Take command of one of these notorious companies and lead it to victory against all odds through most of the war on the Eastern front. Fight from desperate battles in 1942 in the area of Volyn in the Ukraine, to the massive operation “Bagration” in the Brest area, Magnush bridgehead and Warsaw area in Poland and finally to attacks on the German Altdam and Stettin near the end of the war.

Key Features:

  • Ultimate single player experience – 4 campaigns telling the story of the penal company from crucial 1942 to victorious 1945
  • Truth about Soviet penal battalions from their former members
  • New ultra-detailed photorealistic human models, faces and uniforms
  • Bonus single player missions focusing on other non-penal army units

Men of War: Condemned Heroes is affected by the GameSpy shutdown on the 31st of May. You can continue to play the game through LAN, DirectIP and GameRanger.

Personally one of my favourites in the series.

This is the hardest of the game, packing a variety of missions that put you in the shoes of the Penal Units of the Red Army who have to earn redemption for their crimes through enemy blood.
The missions are essentially suicide - you get a handful of people against vastly outnumbering positions of your enemies, clearing the field for the main army, doing sabotage and reconaissance.

The game uses well the advanced possibilities of the upgraded Men of War engine looking somewhat better than the original.


I personally love this game particularly because it doesn't give you that much of a story. Men of War typically has bad narrative, so I like to picture it for myself as "just another moment from the front".

People who enjoy a good challenge in strategies will appreciate this titles.

Do you like men of war? It is all same. Tactical strategy - no need to explain. I miss building troops but that is a different genre, so Men of war got it right. Every single game.

+ : gameplay, which strategy needs

- : maybe graphics, but it's an old game

6/10 but just because I dont like the genre otherwise recommended.

Cool Real Time Strategy game. Not much of a play-again game, because no matter what you do you have the same outcome usually.
