“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.”

“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.”

Men of War: Assault Squad 2 is a nice strategy game. The graphics are nice, everything looks more realistic, compared to the older Men of War games, and also the textures have been improved. The graphics have also been slightly improved from Men of War: Assault Squad. The atmosphere mostly happens in open fields, villages, cities, forests, and even other environments. The audio is pretty nice. I like the sound of the guns, tanks, etc. The music is nice, the ambient music turns into combat music well-synchronized, and it’s overall sounding nice. It sounds less patriotic than the older Men of War titles, but I guess times have changed. The voice acting is also pretty nice. The gameplay is complex, in each mission you have to accomplish some tasks, alike killing certain enemies, cleaning fields off enemies, destroying some units, reaching a point, capturing a point, holding off certain positions, etc. The story focuses on the Soviet, German, American, British and Japan forces during World War 2. The game has 6 campaign, the 6th one of them being the bonus missions. Compared to Men of War: Assault Squad, this game has brought us several types of new missions. That’s a thing I like. But a thing which I don’t like, which is pretty bad: most of the missions have been reposted from Men of War: Assault Squad. This proves that the developers might have worked more on other features, instead of new missions, which disappoints me, because new missions are always an important feature. The mission which have been reposted are also pretty repetitive. The cut scenes of the missions are also pretty nice. The user interface is well-optimized, with no bugs and well-synthetized information. I also like the overall design of it. The controls are pretty good, except with 1 thing: the rotations’ controls of the cameras. I highly recommend you to reset them with the arrow buttons. The engines, just like in every Men of War game, are not perfect. The game has rarely crashes, and when it crashes, you obviously lose the progress of your mission. Try and save the game as often as you can, in order to avoid too much progress lose. You don't want to waste your time by restarting the mission from zero, right? The mechanics are sophisticated, being pretty nice and everything moves well-optimized. Now, I’m going to talk a little about the G.E.M. editor. Just like in every Men of War game, you have a G.E.M. editor. You can create your own battles in it. It is complex and with a various number of functions. This game has brought it more forces from the Earth, more units per each country and overall you will have more diversified fun. I can’t talk about the DLCs of this game, but a friend of mine told me that they contain missions. If you are looking for more content, I’d highly recommend you to purchase the DLCs as well. He also said they are better than the vanilla ones. This game also brings in a new implemented Steam feature, the Steam Workshop. At the workshop, you will find a lot of community-made content, including maps, missions, mods and replays. You can upload your content there, making the community happier, and you can also download content made by other users, to add more content to the game. I have tried the multiplayer, it is still alive and you should try it. There are 5 types of gameplays, a bunch of maps to choose from, and many servers/players. Overall, this is a nice strategy game which simulates the battles of the Soviet, German, American, British and Japan forces during World War 2, but however, has many reposted missions from the original Men of War: Assault Squad, which is a disappointment. Even with this disappointment, I still recommend this game if you are looking for slightly improved graphics, slightly improved AI, and the new missions available.
- Nice and well-designed graphics and textures
- Pretty nice audio and nice music
- Fun and challenging gameplay
- Many missions throughout the 6 campaigns available
- Infantry, heavy guns, batteries, cannons, vehicles, tanks, airplanes, and many other units available
- 4 difficulties available (the heroic difficulty is new into the Men of War series)
- A pretty nice designed user interface, and some well-designed cut scenes
- Some pretty stable engines
- Some pretty nice mechanics
- Nice DLCs, very rich Steam Workshop and a well-made multiplayer, which is still alive
- Trading cards would be a nice feature
- The heroic difficulty should be easier, it is almost unplayable
- The new types of missions are repetitive
- This game literally copies most of the Men of War: Assault Squad’s 1 missions, which is a big disadvantage
- There are some rare crashes, like in all the Men of War games
