“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

System Requirements

    • OS: Windows XP/Vista/7
    • Processor: 2.6GHz Processor or higher
    • Memory: 1GB or higher

A great strategic game, it's one of the most awesome games i've played. It's a shame that GameSpy is closed, so the multiplayer doesn't work anymore :(

I belive that anyone who enjoys strategy games or urban fighting should at least give it a try. It also gives you a good mix between farmfields and local towns.

Super in-depth, super detailed, super good. Not only can you steal enemy vehicles and guns, you can steal those vehicles' supplies and use them yourself, and then ASSUME DIRECT CONTROL with E and turn the game into a third-person shooter. You can control the inventory of individual infantry down to their damn hats and the bullets in their gun. The environments are almost entirely destructable to a striking degree of detail, which leads to awesome moments like when the bomber you call in for an airstrike is shot down by enemy forces (Yes, you can do that too) and it crashes into a house and knocks it to pieces.
The only two complaints I have about this game are that you can't commandeer everything on the field (Battleships, a German artillery piece in one or two missions, some boats, etc), and that there are too few singleplayer missions: only three per faction, plus the American tutorial mission. I suppose this could stem from the fact that they're all taken from real battles that faction actually won, but I think the base game could stand to have a little more replay value. Still, though, given how much fun it is to play the missions that are there, it doesn't hurt the game much.

It is worth it if it is on sale...

Short game if you only like to play as one or two of the factions. 3 missions per faction.<lame as hell.

You need to buy the DLC 4.99 for 1 more mission per faction..LOL

Not as good as COH 1.

The editor is very hard to use/learn...lots of scripting.So not worth to buy just to make your own missions...would take ages. 5 dolla game imo. Most my hours are in the editor.Maybe 12 hours on the USA and Brit missions. played them a few times each..lol

Would never buy another men of war.

This game is an amazing game. It has hundreds of hours of play value between the Campaign missions and the Editor. Plus, mods such as the Cold War mod make this game even better. Although there are some things to be considered when buying.
Pros:
-Great WWII combat with in depth gameplay and hours of fun
-In depth editor that allows you to create maps and missions
-Great mods to add to the fun
Cons:
- No multiplayer due to Gamespy's shutdown (Unless through a 3rd party program)
-Graphics quality, while decent, is not as good as it could be

TBH, It is worth the $3 you pay to get it, but with a lack of multiplayer, it might be best to get Men of War: Assault Squad 2 for better graphics and multiplayer as well as new stuff.

I really like how this game delivers units, from the way you can control a whole battalion to the way you can control each and every single soldier individually. Also, you can rain down rocket barrages directly on your friends, and who doesnt like that! CALLIOPES 4EVA

An amazing game, fantastic in so many ways, It's good and usefull to practice being a tactican, A game with so much potential, and Inspiration. The story isn't bad either, infact it is quite fun, The Weapons, Tanks and Names are Historicly Accurate, if and it's Strategic system are different than any games, Men of War brings a new Experience, And once the player is used to it, The game it self would be easier than before, For the WWII Tanks fans like me, Go and buy this game, I promise you the Tank system isn't dissapointing, and it's Realistic in penetrations, parts and everything. Get the game and you'l see the Lovely contetns and gameplays.

Have fun playing it~
