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

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.

A very grandiose game about Second World War.
If you like realistic and detailed strategic games,
You might appreciate this one very much.

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 !

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.

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.
