Since I have been lucky enough to acquire early acess to the Beta of it and have logged over 200 hours on the 1st Assault Squad I figure ive earned some right to comment on this upcoming release. I have to say that I am having very few graphical issues, only one instance where i can remember a serious shader error but it was easily fixed by minimizing the game and re opening it. The graphics do look very nice and there are several small details i appreciate like the ejecting shell and the smoke from the breech of the cannon and other small things that added to the whole. The gameplay is just as good as the first Assault Squad and ive played 3 matches so far and 2 of them had good frame rates and all while one was bad but hey 2:3 isnt to bad especially for pre-release. There is still the fun 3rd person mode and all the other things that make men of war the amazing RTS it is. I would certinly reccomend this game to any fan of the men of war series and really to anyone who enjoys RTS's or stratagy games in general.

Assault Squad 2, the true successor to the amazing first title, is the embodiment of a true WW2 RTS. The in depth armour system and weapon mechanics are complimented by fantastic graphics that are pleasing to the eye as well as improved UI from the previous Assault squad title. Although the current beta is a bit chunky i have the utmost faith in the developers at Digital Mindsoft to continue the fantastic legacy brought by the first title.

The gameplay is in-depth, the setting and units accurate, the gradual increase to the scale of warfare presented in a skirmish or Multiplayer competitive matchup is a welcome test of one’s foresight and planning as more often than not the crucial moment of victory will not come in one distinct period of the game. The ability of this game to allow a player to exploit an opponent’s flaws in defence or his ability to capitalise on his own armoured or support advantage is astounding. A player may use a series of approaches to try and obtain victory, and the games can end up insanely close as players scramble and crawl their way to victory. Nothing beats the feeling of outwitting your opponents and somehow pulling a victory out of thin air.

If you seek a game that compares to company of heroes you must look elsewhere as both titles have their own distinct style of gameplay. If you want an in-depth somewhat realistic WW2 RTS with stunning gameplay, good graphics and a stellar community look no further. All elements of the game compliment your experience to make for one of the best, if not the best WW2 RTS games in today’s market, and i hope that if you choose to purchase this title, that you will enjoy it as much as i have.

Great game , beats the crap out of CoH. Direct control is great & everything is alot more realistic than in CoH . Graphics are amazing and detailed, gameplay is fun & challenging. Skirmish with friends is great timesink and offers replay value just like multiplayer.

After they iron out some of the bugs / crashes / fps issues this will be 10/10

First off I am going to write this review assuming you have played the original MoW:AS.

1.) It has stepped up and offers outstanding graphics compared to the original. (The dirt is so beautiful)
2.) The AI is human-like and fluctuates on its reactions as the battelfield changes. (Hiding in impact craters, using tank husks as cover)
3.) It offers a few new maps (as far as the Beta is concerned). It also has a few old ones.
4.) All the sounds, music, and textures are recycled from the original.
That's about it in regards to being different to MoW: AS

The second part of this review will be to describe the MoW experience to those that have yet to play this game.

1.) The game is brutal, and unforgiving. (not your typical RTS) You must use your resources wisely as you only get so much and to recover mistakes mid game is almost impossible.
2.) This game stresses on hardcore realism in regards to bullet penetration and physics. (Tank rounds will bounce off certain tanks and shred others.)
3.) If your infantry is not in cover, they are already dead. (Tactical placement of infantry is the key to victory.)
4.) This game is basically as real as war can get.
5.) If you press down your Ctrl key you are able to manually control and operate any unit. (This is a big plus to the RTS genre.)


All in all it is a decent game, however for the fans of the original, you may be disappointed with this new release as it has little to no changes gameplay-wise. However, if you are new to the series then I suggest you watch a few videos to see if this game is right for you.

Update: 3/19/14: 1C has pushed this game back yet again for the second time since they collected for preorders. The game is now available for Early Access, not recommended, although my review above still stands true.
