About This Game

Men of War: Red Tide is a sequel to the critically acclaimed RTS Men of War. Red Tide introduces a new story driven campaign based on the writings of Soviet scribe Alexander Zorich, it also includes dozens of new or upgraded units and weapons.
Men of War: Red Tide is a stunning mixture of RTS and a third-person action that introduces a new fighting force known for its brutal efficiency during the height of World War II. Played out across more than 20 missions, Men of War: Red Tide allows to take command of the feared "Black Coats," the nickname given to Soviet Marines, an elite combat group specializing in engagements near the shoreline.
The player has direct control of new game units including the Black Coats, tanks, self-propelled guns, armored trains, landing craft, artillery and new enemy emplaced weapons to capture and use. New air support options include fighters, bombers, hydroplanes; cruisers, destroyers and gun boats which provide naval fire support.
Fighting during the Black Sea Campaigns of WWII, history buffs and WWII aficionados will recognize theaters of battle such as Odessa, Sevastopol, Theodosia, Eltingen, Nikolaev and Constanta.

  • 23 missions - Soviet, German, Romanian and Italian forces
  • Six intense historical battles and landing operations during 1941-1945

VERY good game. Good mods too. Mods are hard to download though, there is no mod file just put the file example: Cheats mod in the game Red Tide but the extracted verison too. It also have a MP mod. Very Realistic. Good for those who like Great battles and Never ending Beach invasions. Also some Special Ops mission... Thats why I got cheats mod... Or get Editor for this too. Anyways, This aint a waste!!!

There's direct control mode[Control a soldier movement using arrow key and aim using mouse.]
Inventory system is really cool.
If you love to steal enemy weapons, this game is for you. lol

"You have 8 men, now please conquer this entire town full of enemies." -Easy mode

Hardcore strategy with the feel of an action game, plus you can do that cool thing where you can take control of a unit personally.

If you were disappointed by Company of Heroes 2 or just want a difficult WWII RTS then this is for you.

As part of the men of war series this game is a weird one, it's not great but not bad. On one hand it lacks a lot of the polish that the other games have, i lot of things are missing for example the main menu music or credits at the end of the story, the story itself seems even more like a collection of missions extremely loosely tied together. on the other hand the game does bring some new gameplay focused on the navy, you get to control large battleships, submarines, assault boats and small boats, this adds some variety and extra strategy options, also this time you control a smaller amount of soldiers in each mission and you often have to take whole towns all by yourself, and often fighting behind enemy lines adding to the games difficulty, it's definitely harder than the other games but not impossible, the single-player lasted 20 hours. If you're a fan of the men of war games you should play it.

The game is very glitchy. Units move without orders, and enemy units fire and hit targets that they should not be able to see. I do not recommend purchasing unless there are some serious updates.

I've just wasted 10.00 on this game. The game play is ok, but they are missing several game systems i liked from the vanilla. Mainly, I just wanted to play as the italians or romanians, but I 1st have to complete the russian campaign first, and it ♥♥♥♥es me off to new levels. also, i wanted to use the editor to make custom battles, but there is no editor.

I just finished then entire game on hard.

Some missions are FAR harder than any other, and require hundreds of loads, which is really painful in a game like this which takes a long time to load.

It was -OK- if you like Men of War. It completely lacks any music and recycles almost everything from the original game.

Find it somewhere cheap and paly it on normal/easy.

Probably my second favorite Men of War game behind Assault Squad, but is easily the most difficult! Took me forever to finally beat the entire game. Your men can sometimes act stupid, but the story of the Marines far outweighs that. I recommend this game to anyone who enjoys World War II strategy games.

Best strategy game money can buy! Very hard, even on the easy setting it's hard... I really love how each person you command is different, They each own thier own weapons, ammo, rank and specialty(s). You can tell your men to loot bodys to get ammo, guns, medpacks, ect..Very fun and very interactive. This game will always stand in good light with me. Great job 1C Company! You set the bar with this one! 10/10

This is the hardest ♥♥♥♥ing game I've ever played. When you can't beat the third mission on easy there's something wrong. I mean sure four guys vs a gazillion tanks and infantry with mounted guns everywhere shouldn't be possible IRL and I guess the game simulates this pretty well, but... it's a game and it's fun to play as it actually has an intersting, realistic campaign that shows the true colors of the Red Army in contrast to Company of Heroes 2. If you beat this game you're a masochist and you got my respect.

You want a real game where you expierence the actual Russian side, that's harder than ♥♥♥♥ing a owl? Get this game, better than CoH 2, which was a complete let down. 8/10

A nice continuation of Men Of War, without multiplayer though. If you are bored with big formations, and would like to take part in some sercet, silent operations of Russian special forces, this game is a perfect choice. Lack of multi is a bit disappointing, but anyway the singleplayer still rocks. Good game!
