“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.”

Men of War: Assault Squad 2 suffers from being a small step forwards from the first. If you haven't played the first of the Assualt Squads I have no hesitation recommending this for purchase if you have an interest in a deep WW2 real time strategy. Particularly if you played the earlier MoW and want a bit more then you won't be disappointed.

For those that haven't played any of the series MoW is an extremely deep RTS, each of your units has an inventory containing their weapons, ammo and equipment (including hat). Each of these units can also be controlled directly by you at any moment. This makes for glorious moments where you crawl a single man with TNT up behind a enemy Tiger and blow it to kingdom come, or your single tank goes on a rampage causing chaos everywhere. In addition to inventories and direct control there are a bunch of game mechanics to consider, the cover system and terrain is essential to keeping the squishy bits on the inside of your man shaped meat sacks. The ballistics and penetration mechanics are supremely important to tanks, angle your armour and more shots will bounce, shoot through buildings and your rounds will lose kinetic energy. Oh and you can destroy pretty much any structure if you fancy it.

The problem arises when contemplating a step up from the first Assault Squad. At first glance it doesn't appear like there is that much of a difference, it looks and plays very much like the first one with a few interface tweaks and improved graphics. Many of the improvements over the first are "behind the scenes" such as improved kill count mechanics and multiplayer functionality. The major game changer is the steam integration, massively increasing the availability of content and (most of the time) the ease with which you can play it. Sure the quality of a scenario or map will vary but there are good ones out there and reviews and comments make it reasonably easy to find them.

The new content is solid if a bit uninspiring, but new units and fixes are being dripfed into the game and what was a bit of a disappointing release in the beginning is getting nicely rounded out. So if you can get this at a discount then do it and check out the workshop, if you want a first time foray into the series then this is the one to get, the depth of the MoW series can not be oversold and when you get it, it is a thing of beauty. It should probably be mentioned most of my experiences are through co-op to give some kind of perspective. PvP is tense, painful, frustrating and beautifully rewarding in equal measure.

Just keep stealing hats and MGs and don't mention the voice acting.

I'm a massive fan of Assault Squad 1, I have 65 hours on it. But this... I actually can't believe they did this. But then again what did I expect from 1C? They've been using the same engine since 2006 with Faces of war, then with theatre of war then with men of war, then with assault squad, and now with assault squad two. Each time they've boasted about a new engine, new physics and new graphics. None of them exist (apart from the new textures in AS2 but same models as AS1).

This game isn't a sequel to the original it's the same game with better textures, a few ui changes, some new voice acting (still terribly funny), and multiplayer (as gamespy was shut down). I did not notice any new missions or units in the game since they are the same as the previous ones.

I paid £3.74 for this game and I still think that the price was too much, it should be free for owners of AS1 but 1C saw it fit as an opportunity to cash in some quick rubles by making it steamworks mulitplayer, adding in cards, and some new textures.

Any decent game developer (e.g Relic) would accomodate for the fact that people can't play multiplayer with an update not a 'full release'.

This is a terrible display of laziness from a developer and the worst thing about it is that I have to secretly recommend this game as AS1 now does not have have multiplayer..

Finally a game about ww2 without one-sided balance.
You can die for the Motherland, Fatherland, Churchill, Freedumbs or Emperor without yelling that everything enemy has is OP (japanese tanks will make you raise your eyebrows tho). Everything feels good: how tanks react, how infantry throw grenades or change weapons depending on target on their own, tanks and artillery operate at beliveable range, armor thickness and angle seems to work in realistic fashion too. However some weapons that should penetrate 160mm of armor can't kill pz4 which may be just bad luck, but is irritating for sure. Also it's always a big fanservice to me when each faction speaks on it's own language, instead of "Kill that faschistsky ♥♥♥♥ for stalin comerade boris tovarichs brat comerade" nonsense.


But, and it's a big BUT (Y(__|, there's some things that really SUCK:
1) it's basically same as previous game with like 5 new maps, fancier graphics and ♥♥♥♥♥ier netcode, yet costs full price and it seems that AS1 servers are closed.

2)If someone in same match as you have PC FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES, you will have tremendous lags too.

3)Units' pathfinding is probably most infuriating thing i encountered in my life, and believe me, living in Russia you will get thing or two to be pissed at in your lyf. Units will try to go through impassable terrain and get stuck if you wont control them like babies, infantryman, after an order to throw grenade can start doing modern dance moves and catch a bullet instead, SU-122 will agro at infantry and will get shot by Jagtiger in the ♥♥♥ when you're not looking, etc.

4)INTERFACE. Your first couple of hours will be literally unplayable since you will have to call all the scientists in the world specializing in awful GUI to help you figure out what the hell is going on with this squad control. Also half of your keyboard is some random hotkeys that control everything from towing artillery pieces to manually jacking off your soldiers.

5)Units' field of view: you will see for yourself should you decide to play this.

6)ELO in a game where 2v2, 3v3, 4v4 modes exist. People just never learn that it only works in 1v1.

Now after my ♥♥♥ finally chilled, let's get back to good shieeet again.

Unit variety: even tho as a result of applying semi-realistic characteristics to tanks and stuff some units are just too useless to call-in, amount of options is really big for each faction. Even tho, as example, for soviets you will usually get something like some infantry, dshk, zis and then if everything is good you will wait for t34/57 or get that funny howitzer-tin coffin-tank thing that's at lvl 10 or something, or t60, things that you can do with spetznaz with stolen bazooka and flamethrower guy are lewder than most kinky porn. Also when was the last time you saw flamethrowers actually burning everyhing inside of a tank? Games like Company of Jobbers 2 will always shield themselves with some non-existant "MUH BALANCE" holy cow, but in reality Relic just dont know how things work and can't code if their life depended on it.

Manual aim: this is plain fun, even though it seems tanks ironically actually lose in accuracy if you manually aim them. If you remember Crimsonland - when you control soldier with PTRs and noscope360 enemies through covers it feels just like this. However, while you having fun you will probably lose rest of the army because i didn't find anything resembling CONTROL GROUPS IN THIS GAME AND WORKING WITH THIS MINIMAP REQUIRES 900+ APM.

Little things: A lot of things here are just priceless: manually refilling artillery ammunition with infantry squad by moving shells from a truck through inventory (if you played a lot of Zuma at MLG tournaments you will be good at this), shooting cow and then search it's corpse, kill a guy, stuff his corpse's inventory with artillery shells and then move it near your artillery like some sort of death metal treasure chest, throw grenade into trench and then order machinegun to fire at position so enemy won't ever escape, run your flamethrower tank through building filled with enemies, ram enemy fortifications and then detonate it with grenade to see most useless fireworks ever, roll out IS-3 and lose it to one-shot from enemy AT, etc.

I give this game 100 executed war prisoners out of 100. Even though interface and matchmaking are modern means of mental torture, game itself is pure fun. As for singleplayer missions - they don't seem to be as much fun as they were in very first Men of War so i never tried them.

Win for the Rodina or die trying!

There's not that many strategy games out there nowadays and those that do come out usually end up as a disappointment because of being either too bad of a game or too simple and generic (A + Click, I win etc) with no strategy or tactic in place.

The problem with Men of War Assault Squad 2 does not fall into either of these categories. It falls into a special one

Now, when I first heard that they'll be releasing a MoW2 with Steam Intergration I was excited until I saw the price and notice that not many things changed. Paying ~$35 for the same thing is not really a good thing so I decided to buy on sale which I did. And from what I've experienced thus far, thank goodness I bought it from the sale.
_______________________________________

Gameplay
--------------------------------------------------------------
At it's core, MOWAS 2 is a 'what if' Company Of Heroes 2 had much more micromangement and detail involved without the base building and includes mechanics such as managing an individuals soldier, tank or artillery inventory and even ASSUMING CONTROL of them when needed to fine tune your orders such as timing a cooked grenade toss or aiming a specific part of the target etc.

Armoured Warfare in this game puts CoH2's to shame because of how each (and there's a lot) and every Tank has seperate parts which can be neutralized to decommision a tank such as destroying its mobility with a shot to its track or destroying its main gun so that it can no longer fire. Note that they can be repaired should the inventory of the tank or crew have a spare repair kit. The way tanks are destoyed in this game is also amazing as tanks do not have health but instead, rely on their armour thickness and the direction from which the AT fire came from (did it hit from a sloped angle or the rear? etc) so you won't see funny things like a Stuart destroying a King Tiger.

The gameplay in this game is solid and rather in-depth which is the main reason why I enjoy this game so much.
_______________________________________

Single Player
--------------------------------------------------------------

Nothing too interesting here. 7-ish missions for each of the 5 factions which are basically reskins of one another. Luckily, there are mods that add interesting scenarios and SP (or Co-op) missions of their own.

However, Single Player Co-Op has this weird mechanic where person A can buy a Tank but the game decides to give said Tank to person B because he has a smaller army count. In addition, buying a 8-man squad can end up becoming a 2-man squad as a result of this mechanic. Though units can be given away to other players, for a game that has players speaking many languges, trying to share these units can be a hard unless playing with a friend in which case it's only a minor annoyance.

SP can be fun though doing the same thing over and over again can get boring unless you use mods by individuals such as Sir Hinkel.
_______________________________________

Multiplayer
--------------------------------------------------------------

Alongside the weird 'sharing units in Single Player campaign' thingy, multiplayer also has a weird mechanic which although can be turned off in an unranked lobby by the host, it cannot be turned off in ranked matches, period.

Basically, its a levelling system. If I'm not mistaken, the maximum level that one can achieve is around 20 if not more. At level 20, you can purchase any units during a ranked game. At level 1 which most people start as off, you can only purchase half the units at your disposal. Basically, your low level is preventing you from making any expensive yet powerful purchases such as Elite Infantry Units, Heavier Tanks and Heavy Artillery support including half of your special faction troops being locked.

How does 1 increase their level? Two ways. Either they play (and finish) more ranked matches or play through the SP campaign either alone or with a friend.

This levelling system is in my opinion, extremely flawed for players attempting to get their feet wet in ranked multiplayer. Aside from some toxic players which most game have, going against a level 20 opponent when you're simply level 1 offers the new player a huge disadvantage for them and removes the fun for him as he will basically get rofl stomped by superior equipment. In addition to this, most players who I've met in a ranked game tend to have double digit levels while I'm still level 3 and I fail to see how this create a valid and fair leaderboard let alone match when high level players are always going up against lower tier players such as myself. To me, this seems downright broken and makes ranked matches unplayable until I've played a countless number of SP missions for a game that emphasizes on Multiplayer. This mechanic is such a major turnoff that I regret buying this game, even though it was during a deal UNLESS players start getting paired against similarly ranked or levelled players.

One thing that this game has done to avoid players from dropping is by forcing you to finish a game by removing any form of concede button where only your ELO is affected. Instead, even when outnumbered in a 2v1, 4v2 or any other match where you've lost everything, leaving a game midway will do three things instead. Decrease your ELO, degrades your Ranked Trust Rating and finally, Negates you from earning any EXP you gained from that match neccessary to level up your army. And mind you the levels are factions specific. You can have a level 4 Germany army but a level 1 UK army.
So, do players finish a losing game where they get absolutely zero enjoyment because of getting owned hard? No, they don't. They either cut their internet connection, desync the game or simply use Task Manager to close it. Through this, there would be no changes for their ELO, trust rating or EXP earned.
_______________________________________

Conclusion
--------------------------------------------------------------

Good game, great gameplay, great mechanic. Poor Ranked Multiplayer

You can have fun with this game in either SP or unranked MP with a buddy or friendly strangers. Sadly, you won't have fun in a Ranked Multiplayer game.

And as MOWAS 2 is a multiplayer orientated game whose only major difference from its predecessor is Steam Intergration with the price of ~$40, I can't recommend this game to anyone unless its on sale.

As a casual player
I cannot recommend this to other casual players. Get the older one. It does everything this one does as far as I can tell.
There just is not enough changed from MOW AS.
I held off this review for a very long time. I backed this when it was in development.
No new maps.
No Skirmish AI.
Nothing for us casual players.

It's sad that the developers of these games gave up so many years ago.

The "Single player missions" in this game are boring, storyless multiplayer maps with bad AI. Nothing more. They have no objective other than pushing forward and capturing "flags"

The multiplayer community is small, toxic and crippled by horrible engine optimization and network connection errors. You'll be lucky to ever finish a match in this game without someone lagging out or being kicked by players who refuse to communicate.

I'm reinstalling Faces of War and playing the single player campaign again (4th time). I will never buy one of these games again, you've ruined it for yourselves.

It's a very strange game. It's good, but bad at the same time. Well, not bad but it does have it's share of flaws. The gameplay is really good, it's very in-depth and tactical, if you ever learn how to play it. There's almost no tutorial at all, you have to go into the controls settings and learn them yourself. The graphics are great, the sound is amazing, and the gameplay is fluid. What it lacks is a good story, a good tutorial and a good singleplayer. Even though most MoW fans mainly play multiplayer, 1C could have stepped it up more on the singleplayer. The story is really dull. Probably the biggest flaw to this game is how similar it is to MoW:AS1, which was an amazing game. It would seem that a game that is similar to it's predecessor would be equally as good, but somehow this is worse. I reccomend it, but MoW:AS1 is just a whole lot better.

If you have the first Men of War: Assault Squad I would not bother with this one unless is it on sale at a heavily reduced rate. Most of the missions are the same as in the first game. However, each army getting some new missions.

Its a good game. But I wouldn't bother buying it if you have the first one.

Some minor tweaks to the game engine - thats it.

Still no campaign - the skirmish missions are exactly the same.

Crappy reinforcement design for mp games. Why do my reinforcements get randomly dished out to other players.

Do not pay full price for this one. Get it on sale!

When I first started to play this game, I thought to myself. This has a really familiar feel to it and as I got further and further into the game, I confirmed it. Men of War: Assault Squad 2 is the exact same game as the first one. I'm not saying the mechanics are the same. I'm saying they are literally selling you the exact same game with a two on it. There are a FEW small differences in the game mechanics but overall, I've seen DLC add more content.

The game is very much the same Assault Squad game as it was before. After playing it a few hours I realy can't tell the difference.

The only hope is that community will produce some quality content for this game.

The best mod for the original Assault Squad was Dynamic Campaign Generator.

I hope the DCG mod will be ported for this version also.

Hmm well Men of War Assault Squad 2 is some what disappointing. Being that Assault Squad 2 should not be considered as a new game more like an add-on, expansion or update. if you have Assault Squad 1 play it instead because there's so little that was added only like 5 co-op maps. Now with that out of the way I love WW2 games and the Men of War series as well so the people that do not have Assault Squad 1 I say buy this "new game" MOW is one of the best WW2 RTS ever. What was added that i have seen fixes, some maps, steam worckshop, texture updates, (not much of one) audio update, explosions look better, new co-op game play 1 map for each nation (5) and some i can't think of or not worth adding. The reason im not recommending it is because i have Men of War Assault Squad 1.

So yeah. As same opinion as many other curators. It's Probably not deserve to be named sequel, but still a 'Men of War™', a.k.a. most authentic WW2 RTS with strong basis from old ones. If you have enjoyed this franchise or haven't played before, you may feel free to purchase it. (Also it is the only way to play the public PvP multiplayer of MoW series in practice bacause of In-game population matters.)

DO NOT PLAY RANKED MATCH if you just here for fun. It's just 'Another screwed-up RTS w/ Unlocks-by-Level system™'. Also haven't gets any better with it's horrible vehicle navigations and skirmish AI at all.(steering, targetting, name it!)

+ Also finally, replay system soon to be coming with DLC.

++ Wait a second, Improved UI for Deluxe upgrade? JFC, i never expect you guys were genius for making business!

The Game is not worth it, its basicly the exact same as MoWAS1 with worse performance. I lost faith in DigitalMindsoft.

its the same game with 1 or 2 extra maps for each country.... ive never felt more ripped off on a patch that calls itself a new game. love the game, hate the monsters that market/sell it.
