Reviews

“"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

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.
