“"Faces of War really makes full use of its physics system. Since blowing things up, apart and around is the whole point of war in the first place, Faces of War's physics really bring a high level of excitement and interest to the experience."”
7/10 – IGN

Faces of War is a highly recommended strategy wargame which has been made by a collective of talented game developers. This isn't the first installation in their highly successful franchise, and for those players which are interested to see from where it all began, i suggest you purchase Soldiers: Heroes of World War II

In this review, i will try to keep the whole overview of the game as short and simple as possible, so you yourself decide, whether this title is for your future enjoyment or not.

The first thing to actually keep in mind while looking at Faces of War is the fact that the game is rather old, and what used to be it's forte back in the day, to say the least, is now outdated - the graphics. Today, with games such as Company of Heroes 2 available on the market, this RTS looks a bit flat, but it is still nonetheless unique in many ways. One of it's bright and unmatched sides is the direct control over nearly any unit availible on the battlefield, ranging from your vulnerable yet versatile infantrymen to a mighty King Tiger tank. Direct Control, by the way, is especially thrilling when used while commanding a tank or some other land vehicle. This slightly changes the game from an RTS to a shoot'em'up action (might sound like a joke, but it's not). The in-game physics, even to this day, are awesome. Tanks explode, with turrets and armor bits flying everywhere. Structures, along with landscape, are completely destructable. This was also the case with Men of War's predecessor, which i have wrote earlier in this review. The atmosphere of the game is highly detailed and authenthic, regarless of the oudated graphics. The audio in the game is of very good quality, including both the original soundtrack and the sound files themselves. Machine guns rattle, explosions dominate the battlefield, soldiers scream in the heat of the battle, and all of this is accompanied by a decent amount of good generic soundtracks.

The game has three campaigns, German, Allied and Soviet one, which are all split up into three mini-campaigns. Battles range from small firefights and even covert, commando operations to massive battles (an especially good example of a mission with a massive battle is the last German mission which involves a huge armoured full scale assault on an allied occupied town )

Another part of the game which made FoW unique is it's multiplayer. Unfortunately, since Gamespy has been shut down, playing this game on-line is now next to impossible... And as far as i have heard, even before GS ceased to provide it's services, practically nobody played this game on-line lately, prefering rather to play Assault Squad 2

I recommend this game for it's sheer quality. Out of the downsides, i can outline only the oudated graphics, the lack of multiplayer(if your really want to play, you can hook up with some other guys and play a local game on Hamachi) and perhaps my own subjective feeling of the game not possesing that *hollywood* image to it which is very often found in games these days. FoW is a good game which you play instead watching, and will bring you both a good challange and a fun time.

This is actually really good. :o It's plays just like Company of Heroes without actually having to build a base and all that. For five bucks you don't have much to lose. :3

As a fan of the Men of War franchise, I thought this game might be worth trying, as it is made by the same who brought Men of War. I knew going into it that it would not be the same as Men of War, but similar. I thought the gameplay was just like the Men of War games, and I enjoyed it, being a bit challenging at times, like most Men of War games are. The controls, however, are a bit different than the traditional Men of War type, where now you must click different tabs for different unit commands, instead of having just one tab for all, which is a bit meticulous. This is my only complaint. I would recommend to anyone looking for a good RTS that has a few challenges. Good game.

I first hilariously ready this as Faeces of War, but I had quickly reread it to make sure it wasn't that.. But anyway, it is great and all, but a little confusing for starters. But after I got the hang of the controls and using the UI and such, I've found that it is quite enjoyable. I'd reccommend it, 8/10!

(This review has only been written about my 2.5 hours expierience)
Never really liked RTS games, like ever. See this one on sale. Buy it anyways with leftover dollars. Play long @ss tutorial for what seems like 3 god forsaken hours. As soon as I'm done it forces me to do another tank f0ck!ng tutorial. Finally after 3 long years, I complete it. Finally start first mission, kinda pumped. Entire team dies, only one left. Go Rambo. Kill like 50 Krauts with 1 anti tank grenade because the frag grenades are kinda pointless. Win mission by blowing up 3 vehicles and sniping little Nazi b!tches like it actually is 1945. All in an RTS kinda game, so do I recommend this game? I think yes.

Great tactical game (2006).
Not a simulator, "Game about War".
Graphics are nice and smooth, you may see details such holes on the walls or in the ground.
There are some really enjoyable missions in this game that are very well designed.

I'm gonna give you an honest opinion:

This game is great. If you like RTS, third-person shooter, strategy, and a challenge, this is for you. The levels are very nice and the mechanics compliment the time setting. It also has some pleasant blends including with Role Playing genre.
However, the game does have its issues. For example, the objectives are obscure and I often find myself a few steps behind my computerized teammates. It still requires some work, because small issues, such as the ridiculously low health of armored heavy machine guns, or the surreptitious change in objective. Overall, I'd still recommend this game to anyone wanting a challenge or something different altogether.

10/10!!! #1 game in the world, in my opinion i prefer it more than any MoW game!!!! I play it since 2007 but not that 1.04.1 sh@t version the original 1.01. and i probably have at least 500 hours gameplay(it maybe 1000+ idk :D)!! Really good strategy game what u can be use like a 3rd person shooter, a lot of weapons, looting system, lot of vehicle types and it allow you to get as much vehicle as you want in the game, awesome game controlling,good graphics,nice physics,no big bugs(i dont even remember if i find bugs in it) .Back in the days it had a great community, lot of people from lot of country it was really really enjoyable!.
I really miss those days :'(
Back in those days i would say to you "BUY IT ASAP MOTHA♥♥♥♥AAAA!!!!!!"
But NOW...its different !!
First of all, gamespy stop support FoW servers, so the game not even let you go in the multiplayer section.You just can use it in Lan with hamachi or tunngle or etc After the MoW series , the FoW community became small, but you always find servers on it and you always enjoy when you play with it!
Not just me and my friends think that FoW is way better than ANY! MoW game but a lot of old gamer who i talk with. Its maybe just because we grow up play with FoW, i dont really know but i dont even care at all.
If i can go back to those days to play again FoW in multi, i would do it. Miss those days...Good...Old....Faces of War

(sorry for my bad english its not my native language, and if somebody want to play a little fow, just add me on steam!:) )

A very good game simillar to Men Of War. I personally like the controlls that let you have the abillity to drive a truck or tank your squad is in. The controlls also let you shoot/walk your man in a squad to a loctation, basically like a 3rd person shooter. I really love the action in the game. Great thing to play if your into RTS, stragety, and combat sims. This game is a classic, and everything fit in like a puzzle.

First Men of War game to have been made before the Men of War series offically launched. The campaigns are quite decent. Soviets fight unto berlin, Americans/British in a combo fighting in falaise & Antwerp port, Germans in other specific places in Holland/Belgium. Very entertaining.

This is a very good tacticle war game. You can manualy control your units and you must micro manage to keep your troops stocked and alive in battle which gives a sense of realisim that most games don't have.

Better than his sequels (Men of war series) ! Especially because there are better historic maps (Reichstag, Omaha beach)

And the multiplayer with friends is awesome !

I have to agree with everybody else that this game is quite outstanding for it's age! Excellent detail, the UI is pretty good, and the FX is one of the best (personal opinion). Just wish they had better voice actors for the Nations....And then there is that server issue, meaning, nobody is playing Multiplayer! SSSOOO!!! People, please get a group started (or tell me if there is already on based off of this game) and open servers! And I hope I'm speaking for the all of us (if that makes since). FYI, the server issue "complain isn't meant to put down the game, it's just a 'note' to the people reading this. But yet again (must be repitition) this game is well rounded.

The predecessor to Men of War, this game is still worth the money for fans of the series considering it has some of the best single player missions in any MoW/Soldiers game. The 3 campaigns will definitely give you your money's worth, and are worth a playthrough from any fan of the series.
