“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.”

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

Brilliant game. It's realistic as can be and fun as hell.
You can lob a grenade through the roof of a Greyhound and decrew it like a boss.
You can ambush Nazi pigs like a boss.
You can storm the beaches of Normandy like a boss.
OR
You can just ♥♥♥♥ing obliterate everything with scorched earth tactics and ♥♥♥♥ing level entire cities like a boss.
Hardest ♥♥♥♥ing RTS of life, But by far one of the most badass series' ive ever played.
The ONE THING that gets to me (I've just gotta ♥♥♥♥♥ about this) Is how easily you can lose high value units.
You can spend 1000cp on a Veteran Tiger and roll it on up just to have it get detracked by invisible commies throwing homing AT grenades.
THEN BC HEAVY TANKS ARE SLOW they can just keep lobbing at grenades and ♥♥♥♥ your ♥♥♥♥ up.
Flak 88's can destroy anything in one shot (Unless you're the luckiest SOB ever).
AT Guns are very easy to decrew but if cared for you can win with just AT guns and infantry.
Infantry goes hard. The MEN of Men of War are the key and by far the best part. It's almost like you're watching a real war.
Finally, the GEM Editor is fantastic. If you like this game check out the Cold War mod (v1.5.7) and take it into the editor. It's a much better game with everything from M1A2's and Apache's to BTR-90's and T-90's to play with.
Fantastically done.
10/10

Some people might disagree because of bugs and how bad this or that is, but hey there arent to many good WW2 rts games (Other than Company of Heroes 1 and 2) and there are other good ones but this is a very great one it is old and not as good looking but it has tons of content and a very, very good modding community im betting the multiplayer if still up would be filled with people. Now then lets go to pros and cons

Pros-
A lot of content
Great Editor
Great Multi and Singleplayer campaign
Realistic physics (sometimes buggy though)
Great Modding community

Cons
Multiplayer closed (have to use third party to play)
buggy
Not so pretty Graphics
No basebuilding (just me though)

And i would recommend Men of War Assault Squad to those that are fans of the series and or rts games such as Company of Heroes or War game Series

This is a highly amusing take on the RTS genre, ww2 style. I found it to be very amusing once I mastered the inventory system. Arming your sqaud with pilfered .50's they walk around with for the win.

Men of War Assault Squad is the best WW2 real-time tactics game! I've been following this game series ever since the original 'Soldiers Heroes of WW2'. When I tried the demo back then, and realized that you can take the shells out of your broken tank to load a stolen anti-tank gun, and you can scavenge the fallen bodies for weapons and ammunition, and you can take cover behind virtually everything, and you can drive tanks through buldings, I was immediately sold.

This amazing level of detail and authenticity is still present today, and it brings an immense level of control and different tactics that you can use. That comes at the expense of very much micromanagement and almost every key on the keyboard being assigned to some action. That makes it hard for newcomers to pick up, but once you memorized everything, you're going to have a blast.

The multiplayer component is a bit shaky, because it uses an old GameSpy service. That's why I have very high hopes for the upcoming Assault Squad 2, which promises to have full Steam MP integration. The developers have been listening to the community a lot and have published several free updates with lots of new content, so I trust them on this one.

If you have played World of Tanks, Battlefield, Company of Heroes and Call of Duty... you're gonna like dis.

Because:

If you like World of Tanks, you can have realistic tank battles with penetration, armor angling and nobody will call you noob if you use gold (apcr) rounds! :D Plus, Tiger actually has armor here! PLUS, here you can see what would have happened of WoT had infantry!

If you like Battlefield, you can capture objectives and receive reinforcements! You can fly a plane, drive a car, shoot a bazooka, shoot a rifle, have classes, custom gear, kill cows and get a FULLY destructible environment! Yup! All buildings can go down! F*ck tickets... KILL THEM ALL!

If you like Company of Heroes, you can control people just like in a RTS game! Squad control, tank control, Hold Fire, Fire at Will, Artillery strike, Cars, Smoke grenades, AT infantry, Snipers, Take Cover (specific! :D)... and you can HIDE FROM ENEMIES! :D

If you like Call of Duty, worry not my friend! Yes, you can enable direct control if you think that your idiot can't shoot properly (Which is a very annoying thing in some RTS games)! Exactly, now you can "Be" him and rush in guns blazing just like in CoD! Just take a Machine Gun, enable direct control, rotate the camera so you can see things in front of you and BOOM! You have an Action Shooter!
