Reviews

“What Assault Squad does do is transform and reinvigorate Men Of War as a multi-player game, as well as set itself in stone as one of the greatest and grandest co-op games available.”
RockPaperShotgun

Update Notes

Men of War Assault Squad is affected by the GameSpy shutdown on the 31st of May. You can continue to play the game through LAN, DirectIP and GameRanger. If you want to make use of full Steamworks integration for multiplayer we recommend to choose Men of War: Assault Squad 2, which includes all content of the first part and much more.

About This Game

Men of War: Assault Squad features a completely new cooperative skirmish game mode with access to five different nations (Russia, Germany, USA, Commonwealth and, for the first time ever in the Men of War series, Japan) as well as increased realism and accessibility.
Players can get behind the controls of a tank to smash through obstacles, crush soldiers under their tracks and fire high-explosive shells at enemy emplacements, they can even take control of individual soldiers as they fight. As in previous games in the series, Men of War: Assault Squad includes the unique "direct control" feature which enables players to be in command of any unit using the WASD controls, rather than pointing and clicking.

Key Features:

  • Different historical settings and battlegrounds for every nation presented in the game allowing players to face distinct varieties of enemies and tactics
  • Unique hero units with powerful abilities such as increasing units' firepower, boosting morale or providing other advantages to defeat the enemy against all odds
  • Bonuses featuring remote controlled bombs that can flatten entire residential blocks, airstrikes to destroy incoming tank columns, special "For the Motherland!" charge attacks and many more
  • Improved and dynamic AI ensures that no two missions in the game will play out the same way, making each battle a new experience against an AI that really fights back
  • A great choice of various locations including Western Europe to Eastern Europe, North Africa and the Pacific area
  • The ability to play together with up to four friends in LAN or cooperative online play
  • New multiplayer maps and game settings
  • Improved multiplayer providing authentic use of equipment and vehicles
  • Overhauled infantry squads and the ability to purchase specific soldiers
  • More realistic weapon behavior and penetration values
  • A reworked artillery system providing innovative assault and defense strategies
  • New types of ammunition which increase the tanks' strength

+Complex Editor for building your own missions or let simulate a fight between the AI
+accurate hit-detection (you can shoot off every part of a tank basically)
+modsupport (I recommend the Blood and Gore mod)
+Coop/Multiplayer modes (you can play everything in COOP if you wish)

It is like "Deaths" cage, You are fighting steel with steel, rifle with rifle, planes with planes, ships with ships and Bayonets vs Boynets. It is like you become so war torn that your mind processes one thing, WE GOTTA TAKE THAT BEACH! The raft drops, You been through alot through the years and it's June 6, 1944. The raft drops it's doors carnage unleaches men have been torn apart by bullets and flesh fleshless. You are so scared but at the same time adrenaline rush is going through you, You see guys limbless walking about the beach. But the beach is only the beggining, As we pushed through 1 sherman hit then 2 then 3 then 4. We had to get those 88's all of a sudden I remeber hearing a loud roar BOOM I was knocked out cold. I had awoken minutes later to see that we were pushing forward, I recall seeing this young kid proablly 17 killing 6 German prisoners. You can't imagine what I have went through "Men of War".

Just a made up little story I decided to write for the review for readers, But really I love this game it's great to go into dev mod and make your own missions and maps.

It was cold, very cold, our orders were simple: survive.
it was January and the russian winter was ending or so it seemed, our armored divison arrived 3 hours late, Mud they claimed but we knew it wasnt mud, no, not mud it was plain simple it was fear. The russians were infamous for jumping out of the treeline with rockets and molotovs a real pain for our tanks.

As the snow begain to stop and my vison cleared it began. zooop! bullets rained around everywhere it was the russians one after another bullets flew past and screams became louder, this was it but why? why am i so scared? i signed up for this to fight for the Fatherland.
Engines roared as the panzers drove past and the cannons blasted ripping trees and slinging dirt and debris into the sky
Waiting paitently with my sniper i look down my scope and see him, a boy 19 0r 20 a sad face, i understand him i.. i am him at this moment, but honor for my people kicks into my mind and i squeese the trigger. i hear a loud pop and see a body drop suddenly he is dead.. Pop... my ribs they hurt why? why do i feel so good? i look over to see a russian soldier with his Mosin aimed at me and i look down to see a crimson red in my chest i look up and yell Fur das Vaterland!

Now im cold and lost will you guide me to war? or have i saw the end to it?

10/10 Fun strategy Game.
