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

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

+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.

50% of the time you troops will jog through enemy fire without so much as raising their weapons. This is not sprint, this is just really dumb AI. And god, the AI in this game are so terrible. Easy=godlike soldiers vs enemy army of developmentally delayed people. Hard=an army of paper dolls vs an army of Jedi with tanks and machineguns. Enemy vehicles on all difficulty levels are OP as ♥♥♥♥. A jeep (which has no protection at all, it can be destroyed by MGs and has no sides) can easily slaughter a squad of panzergrenadiers. The player's AI will not throw grenades back or duck out of the way. The enemy AI will use every grenade you throw at them to throw back and kill your troops. Player AI will not use antitank grenades on tanks, instead they will use it on a single enemy unit running across their line of sight, instead of using the fully-loaded MP44 in their hands. There is no campaign, just skirmish missions with the same 20 or so units for each faction and the same 2 support options. This game was made for multiplayer only and yet it has no multiplayer. It also HAS NO GEM EDITOR.

TL;DR AI is broken, little content, do not buy
