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
  • Over 100 different military units: tanks, artillery, armored cars, planes (fighters, bombers, transporters), war ships and boats (cruisers, torpedo boats, gunboats)

-----------This is my review account, because the low playtime.
Graphics:
+ varied terrain
+ handsome effects
+ high visibility
- low-detail soldiers
- ugly cutscenes

Atmosphere:
+ highly exciting shootout
+ destructible buildings and trees
+ physics effects
- boring cutscenes

Sound:
+ realistic weapon effects
+ very good, powerful 5.1 sound
- creepy-phlegmatic speaker

Balance:
+ speed can be slow down two-stage
+ three levels of difficulty
- already at level "easy" difficulty
- no tutorial

Mission Design:
+ different mission types of commands to mass slaughter
+ scripted counter-attacks, reinforcements, support
- big battles confusing

AI:
+ clever opponents
+ skillful use of weapons
- pathfinding sometimes bad (ditches, building corners)

Units:
+ many kinds of infantry
+ own inventory per soldier
+ many (conquerable) vehicles and guns
+ ships and aircraft in support

Campaign:
+ six campaigns
+ also relatively unknown scenarios (odessa)
- generally weak, dry presentation

Game Size:
+ solo playtime around 30 hours
+ historical campaigns with 23 missions
+ many long missions without idling
- no multiplayer

Multiplayer: No Multiplayer

Without training on the front - that survive only experienced tactician. There are great scenes in which my boys jump from cover to cover or my conquered tank with the last shot lands a direct hit. Negative falls, the small size of scenarios, there is no multiplayer and you can neither the Germans nor the Romanians play. In short: For patient tactics professionals is Men of War: Red Tide as an unpolished diamond in the rough.

Score: 74 / 100

Ну что, тяжелая стратегия, кидая сразу в гущу событий, дает под управление амрмию, противник, который всегда преобладает в колличестве и качестве, промахи в тактике не прощает совершенно и отряд который бъет в лоб разбивает без потерь, Правада в дальнейшем (на момент написания каментария прошел 1-ую главу) дают уже маленькие отряды и воевать приходится более продумано, т.к. пока контролируешь захват позиции одними, в других уже гранаты кидают. После любой перестрелки приходится чистить карманы противника ибо патроны у отряда не бесконечные и тратятся достаточно быстро, тоже самое с любой техникой.

Это не просто стратегия, а в неком роде симулятор военных действий, в большинстве случаев приходится работать в тылу и надо всегда проявлять извращенность ума, что бы отобрать или уничтожить военную технику противника.

С такой сложностью и интересным гемплеем рекомендую однозначно.

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.

My only real issue is the difficulty and that there's no music in the rest of the game as far as I know.

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!!!

This game is based in the Russians marines and their fight in WW2, the missions are not repetitive and fun to play the game is challenging and maybe even hard but after some tries you can pass the missions, maybe even the best single player campaign in Men of War series in my opinion, one fact that let me sad there's no music for menu...WHY??

You can throw knives across a 20 meter distance with supreme accuracy, sneak up behind a machinegun nest, and pick that knife back up before throwing it again.

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 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.

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!
