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.”

Like a more hardcore Company of Heroes. Epic moments when the last member of a squad manages to scavenge an AT grenade from a neaby corpse and finally take down that enemy tank that's been harassing you.

But being only 16 and so having played the series since the age of 6 I can safley answer your question by saying, this game has been literaly the majorty of my life.

In the start you are tactically fighting to keep your men alive while trying to overtake the enemy posistions but towards the end you are pretty much focused on sending armored cars to their deaths to deal with artillery and heavy anti tank guns that keep killing off all your troops and vehicals. Fun.

Very fun.

But, I must say that I find this lacking in quite a few aspects.
For one,
The singleplayer is a joke, the missions aren't bad, its just that the missions are all the same for each nation.
That is all there is to the vanilla game unless you mod in some custom missions. When you complete one campaign, you've completed them all. So unless you fancy the same missions 5 times each, multiplayer is the only alternative, which I will now touch on.
Two,
There is a multiplayer, but don't have any hopes for it, as you are going to be kicked out of any game you join. So if you don't have any friends to play with, multiplayer is just bouncing from lobby to lobby until you find a game you aren't immediately kicked from.
Three,
The map editor is interesting, and I think that it is great to be able to create my own battles. Yet the controls are rather jerky when trying to navigate the map. There are also several minor complaints I have about it but I won't trouble you with them.

However, this has the potential of being a very good RTS game, there is a very in-depth range of actions, and multiple ways of approaching each encounter. and mods can add to the experience, making for some spectacular battles. But it is drawn back because of the shallow singleplayer and unwelcoming multiplayer community so I barely recommend it.

In short:
It has very good gameplay, but is set back by a repetitive singleplayer and multiplayer that is nearly innaccessible without friends.
I'd give it a 7/10- Pretty good.

This game is perhaps the closest a WW2 game will get to perfection.

I'm serious. Nearly everything about this is perfect.

You want diversity? This game has diversity. Dozens upon dozens of units to choose from 5 different nations. You want action? Hell yeah this game has action. Both Multiplayer and Singleplayer are choc-full of people/AI that will destroy you if you allow them. You want challenge? As I just said, set AI to the highest or pick some guy out of Vietnam on multiplayer and you will definitely be challenged.

Maybe you don't like multiplayer? Maybe you don't like getting your ♥♥♥ kicked in 17 different ways, or you just want to be alone? Then play singplayer. Unlike most games where the singleplayer is tacked on, and nobody cares anyway because SHOOTEN OTHAH PEOPLZ the singeplayer for this game is damn good. Every nation has like 8 or so different missions, that are /somewhat/ copy-paste between, but they're all pretty good in their own right.

And if that's still not enough? Step right up to the workshop folks, we got literally everything you want. More units? Hell yeah. More nations? Definitely. More maps/missions? I shouldn't even have to answer that.

TL;DR: This game can satisfy almost any WW2 enthusiast's dreams. Singleplayer, multiplayer, doesn't matter, they're both good. Not satisfied with what you have? Head down to the workshop for even more. You're literally making a mistake by not buying this game. ♥♥♥♥ing do it ya pansie, 30$ is well worth it for a game of this quality.

This game is probably one of the only strategy games where I can't get bored by it. The singleplayer is enjoyable and challenging in any difficulty and the multiplayer is great with friends. Sometimes, the opposition can be really hard to defeat on multiplayer if you aren't familiar with the game but other than that it is good fun.

Enjoyable, realistic and very satisfying.

Men of War: Assault Squad 2 is an effort to produce a WW2 RTS that feels authentic, vehicles and soldiers have ammunition, weapons have their characteristics modelled accurately and armour penetration chances too. This then leads to wider considerations such as logistics on the battlefield, the careful selection of units and your force composition etc. The singleplayer campaigns for the five playable nations will break you in nicely ready for multiplayer, and multiplayer has a variety of modes such as; co op skirmishes, vicotry point matches and comabt matches. The graphics and effects look really nice but can be a drain if the system is getting on a bit, so be warned before cranking it up to ultra! Other features such as direct control mode allow a single unit, from a lowly rifleman to a 50 ton tank, to contorlled directly by the player - aiming weapons, steering/ movement etc - thus providing a finer degree of control over more specialised vehicles/ situations. Would certainly recommend if you want something inbetween COH 1/2 and more serious games like the Combat Mission series.

The "game" is simulation. If you've ever wondered how a King Tiger provoked nothing but terror, what a Bofors cannon would do to a village, or how the MG-42 ambushed it's prey, well this game's for you. It's as graphically stunning as it is enlightening. I've learned more about mid century warfare from this game than any predecessor. The amount of tools and tanks you get at your disposal leaves nothing to desire. Learn how mortars and MGs compliment each other and utilize single soldiers at the touch of a key.

In this game there is "no god" or little to no random number generating. If you don't like how a unit is performing hit a key and micromanage it to victory. Hammer windows with high explosive tank rounds and push into crippled landscapes with your wily storm troopers.

The games not at fault, the hick-ups lie in the animations and AI. These should not deter your purchase. This game is striving for the moon in realism. It's essentially a WW2 sandbox with a decent campaign and extremely fun multiplayer.

When you Play Men of War: Assault Squad 2 you feel as tho you can relate to Rommel. The struggle is real. Those generals had a lot of variables to consider, and now so do you.

As an RTS gamer, I expected this game to be similar to Company of Heroes or StarCraft. I was so very wrong.
((I came into this game with no experience of MoW 1))

Pros
-Excellent selection of units; and when there isn't something there, there's a mod for that.
-Large-scale battles
-Lots of micro required
-Reasonable tutorial level
-Level creation

Cons
-Selecting a group of units can be finicky
-Lots of micro required (it's a love/hate relationship)
-Lag spikes are easily enough to crash a good PC (can be said for most RTS therefore isn't really a complaint)

All in all, good game. I won't comment on price because Steam Sale is a thing. 7/10, would recommend.

1) Start the singleplayer game
2) Clear the first couple of enemy positions with no real problems
3) Get overconfident and lose half your men to a single machinegun position hidden in a bush
4) Ah! I see how this works now.
5) Spend hours carefully blowing up AI positions with mortars and heavy tanks
6) Definitely know how this works. Time for some multiplayer.
7) EVERYTHING IS DYING WHAT IS GOING ON HALP

For reals though, install GSM as soon as you get this. Great game.

When you could say the only new thing about this ``new`` men of war are satisfying graphic, the game is worth it for the editor. With the addition of steamplay, they added the workhshop and the game just became more than it has always been.
7/8 of my time was on the editor to play with mod like ROB realisme and Star Wars mod.

I think i had even more fun than i did in the editor of Age of empire.

I love this game would be an understatement, especially once you add the Sir Henkle mod.

A hardcore RTS where every soldier has his own inventory, and tough but fair combat on hard mode.

The only this that bothers me is when you play online and you order a squad then your friend gets half the forces when he has less, which don't get me wrong kinda makes sense, but when I order a unit I need it in full squad not just 1/4th of the squad. It's fixable by having your friend gift the units back to you but it should be an option not enforced by default.

At the time of writing this I have played 101.8 hours and loved every second of it.

Hard game play, you never win a match in hereos mode without statify at least 100 troops, 30 viechels, not like COH, you can control every single person in a troops for difference task, beward that there is a limited in aim and magazines, also fuel, therefore, you need to have a lot of plans to choice in the battle, because if you keep moving your tanks left to right or right to left of the maps, your tank will be out of fuel and have to stop somewhere....may be get ambush....if you are new to the game and playing Multi-player matchs, Germany is the best option with planty of aim...
