Reviews

“If you haven’t played Men Of War before, then this is a rich and rewarding place to start. And you really should play something in this series if you have the faintest whiff of interest in RTS, because it is one of the great masterworks. To not play it is to waste your life.”
Rock, Paper, Shotgun

“With a substantial graphical upgrade, a bunch of new units and a fleshed out multiplayer component (as well as skirmishes, finally), every fan is bound to get hours upon hours of fun, visceral and emergent gameplay. In case you haven't had contact with an Assault Squad game and you're an RTS gamer, you will not be disappointed. That's a recommendation right there.”
Mouse N Joypad

“Accidentally discovering something awesome will soon become a four-word summary of my time with Assault Squad 2. [...] I love Assault Squad 2, but it was not an easy romance. Its brutal difficulty spikes and hands-off approach to training should serve as a warning to all but the most grizzled of armchair generals: this game is war, and war is hell.”

I love this game! The only issue that I have had with the game is that every time I tried to run the game it gave me an error and didn't run. My gaming experiance was on my cousin's computer and I loved every second of the game! I could have sat there and played for hours! I have yet to get the game to work on my own computer, but if you get the game working it is wonderful! I would definitly recomend it to my friends!

It is somewhat disappointing that I bought the game 3 days before this game went on sale, but it is a GREAT game to play for herotic and valiant RTS gameplay. Great graphics, great gameplay, its just awesome over all. Beside being somewhat expensive (according to me), its great and worth the cost.

First of all, it might seem like I know nothing (like John Snow) at first sight. I've played all of the Men of War series and the elder ones of this game just not in this account. So please read:

If you like WWII and RTS like me buy it. But:

Do NOT buy it if you want a solid, story rich campaign. If you want that, buy Men of War. If you also don't mind old games, I would also recommend playing the ancestors of this series Soldiers and Faces of War.
This game is based on Multiplayer gaming. Do NOT buy it if you don't want that. It only has Skirmish missons as Single Player.(Which I also enjoy playing)

This game, like all of the ones in the series, have bugs. But only minor bugs. (And a bad AI) This will never be gone until the engine made this game is changed. But the game is worth it. Don't hesitate to buy and try it out yourself! I just wanted to make a quick review for the newbies.

I bought this game a few days ago for 30 dollars (This is alot of money for me at the moment) It was amusing for a while but them I realized that it really isnt worth what is charged. I know iv'e played 8 hours on it but that was out of desperation, to atempt to prove it was worth the money, it isn't. And without anyone to play with me the only thing I have is the singleplayer campaign in which you can play as one of the major contries of ww2 but unfortunatly it wasnt until a few hours in that I realized that each countries campaign is a shameless copy of the last. Furthermore seeing as the recent sale has made it significantly cheaper I now look back on the day I bought it and wish that I had just waited.

Recommended!!!!!! Heres how it goes:

Plays as USA.
Feels ready to throw down an epic battle.
Gets enough Field Centers to call in the epic 101st Battalion.
Deploys them behind enemy lines.
German Medium Tank comes up.
It shreds them to pieces.
Calls them in somewhere else.
Another tank shreds them.
AT grenades the tanks to death.
More show up.
Kills them.
Even MORE show up.
One last Field Center is left.
Starts airstriking it and deploys the 101st battalion.
Repeats many times.
Finally wins the Battle of the Bulge.
4535235235/10 would attempt and fail a lot again

Tries again on MP match.

Sees enemy tank

Tries using an AT Infantry Unit

-_- Were it so easy

RIP AT, ripped apart the Tank and it's men.

Simply the best. Before this game I used to play Soldiers Heroes of World War 2 (SHOWW2 for short) when I was 9 years old, which was the 1st ever Men of War game! I was pretty sad when I found out that nobody played that MP game and all the units that went into the waste. But then I found out that there was this series called Men of War and now I'm reliving my dream. After playing this game I cannot and I repeat CAN NOT go back to Company of Heroes 2 cause it's unrealistic and I'm so used to damaging the machines that I find it unrealistic how those units suck up damage and the HP bar. All in all If you enjoy realistic games and teamwork then this game is for you.

Watch out for my tiger c;

This game is my absolute favorite speaking of rts games.
it comes with all the options someone could ask for.
great map/mission editor inclusive.

You can have massive battles with tons of tanks and arty,
you can also have infantry squad based, storydriven stealhgameplay in
which you e.g. need to lead a group of airbornes to infiltrate a german flakbase.
You can also have both at the same time.

to top it all, the multiplayer is great. its possible to launch an 8vs8 battle,
though, it can causeserious lags and performance drops - depending on the match's option ofc. 2vs2, 3vs3 or 4vs4 is no problem most of the times. gamemodes are
battlezones (in which you need to capture flagzones, if you keep more than the enemy,
your team will gain points). combat (in which you get points for destroying enemy units)
and some variations of those. you can set the options like how high the pointscap will be,
the maximum of how many troops someone can call in or lead at once, etc all yourself.

hundrets of different vehicles and units like mortars, mgs, howitzers are awaiting you. the content is amazing. mods will deliver you even more, high detailed units or even whole factions.

micromanagment is a big thing in this game, though you dont need to take care of each soldiers inventory (yes, thats actually possible). every soldier has a name, skills and his job. you would need to control a soldier to throw a nade into a good spot here and then, but most of the times you will find yourself controlling your favorite tank and hunt down others in direct mode.

speaking of direct mode , its the thing which seperates it from other ww2 rts games most, imo. you can, if you want, control single units in WASD mode, use the weapon or other items (even throwing knives for the fun of it). nothing is more satisfying than hitting an enemy tank into its ammo depot (the game is doing a great job in hitboxes) in direct mode, causing a huge explosion which will destroy the buildings around it, including the snipers in them. mmh. feels gud man.

if you want to make a map yourself, do it. the editor is a quite easy tool to make super detailed maps, waiting to get released on the workshop. there are plenty tutorials on youtube or on communityhub. i have created a few of them my own, its worth to get the game only for checking out my incredible beautiful maps.

the mods will let this game staying alive for long long time. star wars, realism mods, a mod in which you play the sp campaing of call of duty mw2, terminator mod schwarzenegger style, mods which will let you explore the modern war or just simple skinpacks or soundpacks - all available here on steamworkshop.
easy installation and setup.

if you now think "meh, all i was asking for is a simple rts game" , its simple if you want. a simple rts game in which you can call in infantry and tanks to destroy the opposing
armies and conquer some ground. but you can go deeper if you like.
alot more deeper. and its always better to go deeper no homo.

if you want to learn more, about the details or whatever, feel free to send me a
friendsrequest here on steam. o/

Great RTS for a "pop-in-and-play" session however the this game is in my opinion just a reskin of assault squad 1, i prefer this game over assault squad 1 due to the better UI

Pros
1. Good UI
2. Challening AI
3. Okay cover system (its mediore because it sometimes is a bit buggy)

Cons
1. Hard to start a multiplayer game as almost everyons is what seems to be a pro
2. Russian tanks are OPAF
