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

Its literally just the same mission over and over again. Dont get me wrong the mechanics are fantastic and the idea is great and its fun for a while. But its not fun to do the same mission over and over. sure the obstacles and buildings are different, however the objectives are almost identical almost every time.

nice strategy game and pretty realistic for a strategy game.

pros:
-good price for what it offers
-realistic
-lots of units and weapons
-nice micro details
-strategical and micro handeling all together
-you can pickup and use any abandond weapon from the ground (even cows and chikens...)
-as well you can repair and use damaged tanks and equipment
-nice reinforcements system (but could of be beter)

cons:
-missions are very repetitive
-you can't apply efective strategy tacticts like other common strategy games
-graphics are moderate
-multiplayer is pretty much not existing (but it works through GameRanger for multiplayer)

overall score 3.5/5

I really liked the game other than 1 critical issue i had playing it and maybe/probably it was because i didn't know how and couldn't figure it out on my own. How do you order reinforcements? I was playing the campaign and beat the first US mission without any and cleared 3 capture points on the second map and after taking wave after wave of enemy reinforcements i couldn't order any of my own... Can you not order instant reinforcements? how do you order reinforcements? Well since i can't figure it out i only played for about 1 hour. Thought the concept was excellent, taking cover and cover fire was very cool. Just needs a better tutorial versus none at all.

Well I'd say that the game was fun, but that wouldn't be true. I love this game for the reason masochists love pain. IT JUST HURTS SO GOOD. Casuals beware.

Spam cheap infantry and take over the first few point easily. Ai spams tanks. You think 'Oh ♥♥♥♥' and instead of spamming tanks yourself, you repair and steal the old brocken ones fomr the AI earlier on in the game. You shout '♥♥♥♥ yeah!' Right before being blown up by their better tanks.

10/10 I love the repair feature.

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!

Im on the back foot...
Enemy infantry made it past my front line, a situation that comprimises my whole team, I purchase and sent out a Half-Track with mounted .50 caliber heavy machine gun to clear them up.. however on the way an the debries from a building hit by artilery hits happens to hit and take out the gunner.. Time for a bit of fast micro.. Upon reaching the area the enemy was last spotted there is no sign of them, they have likely scattered into various cover (all units in a squad can be indivudually controlled in fine detail or directly controlled) .. I spot an enemy half track! The hole in my front line is bigger than I thought.
I decide to play rambo with my driver, I dismount, detatch the .50 cal gun from it with my driver and take some TNT from the back. I command my soldier to only return fire preventing him from opening fire and giving away his location, I tell him to get down on the ground and crawl to a nearby bush. I know my empty half track presents an irristable target for the enemy to steal... the bait and trap set, I switch my attention to re-enforcing my front lines, perhaps a sniper to spot and an AT-gun patch up the line, cant afford more infantry yet, I spread my lines a little thinner.
I spot the red dots in my backline on my mini map, lucky I caught it! Switching back to Rambo in time to see the enemy attempt to jack my halftrack. I put him in direct contrtol more, and take my time aiming a perfect shot at the enemy half track approaching, some men already disembarking and running for my bait.. FIRE.. ♥♥♥♥ I mis-judged the distance! He's far enough away that my trusty .50 Cal cannot penetrate his armour, backup plan, I aim for his tracks as he turns to escape.. come on.. yes! I manage to break the track off the left side, disabling his movement. A man hops out to begin repairs... I put a .50 Cal in his skull.. he won't try that again. I mow down enemy infantry spotted until I've run out of bullets. I switch to my pistol, move into an impact crator recently created, there I hide hoping to find an oppertunity to use the TNT to maximise damage. Rambo has played his part... but all the while I have been equally creative with any of the hundred odd units on the field....
