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.

Not sure why there are so many bad reviews for this game. Ok its not a step up for the series more of a step backwards but it's still a decent title if you like Men of War. I haven't found any errors or bad progrmming yet and Ive nearly completed the game.

EDITOR ONLY, STORY NOT REVIEWD

I like the men of war series, and with the steam sale I decieded to buy the men of war pack evenh though I already own some of the titels via retailers. So, I welcomed the idea of playing this very Men of War title as it would feature better graphics, which is true compared to the original faced of war/men of war, not that it matters because most of these improvements either don't work(hdr won't work for me) or are too small to be noticed(the higher poly count in the models, tanks are cubical and zooming in to see the faces of soldiers is unwise during combat as it limites your situaltinal awereness). Not that I really cared because I always prefered the ability to have massive battles and ambushes via the editor rather than it looking better, which is my main problem with condemmed heroes: the editor is ruined.

It is not ruined as in it is broken, no not at all. It just lists things you can place that are implacable, i.e. they crash the game once selected or placed. Not a big deal, all men of wars have had this problem, they just had it in predictable places. You could easily avoid them but here, no not here. Here they are all over the place. Look at that, gun_1, gun_2, gun_3 and gun_4, very nice except one of these will crash your game, no matter what. even if you only scroll over it: using the mousewheel to navigate the menu=crash. It gets better, as you can select certain items(be it tanks, guns or even soldiers) without crashing the game, but when you place them the game does crash. The number of units is very, very, very small. There are only two factions whith the germans having their regular number of units(less even when it comes to vehicles) and the russian have a lot more units. Sounds nice, doesn't it? Perhaps it does, but some of the russian units make the game crash, or are the same unitmodel but with a name(e.g. John) instead of ''rifleman''.

The campaign itself has been untouched as of the writing of this review so I have no idea as to it being any good. Should you like the editor a lot than DON"t BUY THIS GAME, buy the original or Assault Squad. Everything but this editorial heap of crash.

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

One of the best Men of War games there is it is quite hard but that is part of the fun a bit repeditive at times like you feel like you have just done something just like the last objective in the last mission but what ever a big like is the new graphics and textures like the new and cool looking faces and uniforms and guns and that sort of stuff but the Men of War games is still my number one Strategy game of all time

9/10

I guess that not everyone would be able to enjoy it due to its extreme difficulty level (even on easy), but for hardcore Men of War fans like me, this is a must own.

Quite good game for hardcore RTS fans bearing few bugs but still better than most of recent releases. Some gaming magazines/sites rated this game poorly, mainly because of AI flaws, physics error or "copy & paste" graphics from previous instances, but it's still good game for MoW fans.

It's almost exclusively for MoW series fans and even those could have a hard time. If youre new to the series dont even bother to play

Great game that I highly recommend for the CoH lovers that wants a little more military simulation. Graphics are not as good as CoH but hey the game is fun.

Make sure to download the co-op MOD!

They could have used a Russian narrator :-)

Bugs, bugs made this game unplayable. I played all the other men of war games, but I didn't meet so many bugs I did in this one. I stopped playing until I came to a misson the bugs ruined it all.
This game needs an uptade! THIS IS AN UNFINISHED PRODUCT
And what's even more annoying is that the deafult control setting is diffrent from the other men of war games, so either you have to take the time to learn the new control settings or change the settings.
In the other hand, I would highly recommend the other games in the Men of War series.
