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

System Requirements

    • OS: Windows XP/Vista/7
    • Processor: 2.6GHz Processor or higher
    • Memory: 1GB or higher
    • Graphics: DX9c compatible GPU

If Company of Heroes and Blitzkrieg made a baby, this is what you get. At first I loved the baby, but then I wanted to punt it, mostly because of the terribly frustrating enemy snipers! Here they are picking off my perfect defenses, and there isn't jack sh*t I could do about it. I would spend so much time just trying to find them, and by the time I would, half my troops would be a pile of splattered brains on the ground. So I left the game for a few days, thought about it, and then realized I was moving too slowly. Make sure you grab those resources quick and early, and maybe you'll have enough to survive when bad things happen! So, I just finished playing a Commonwealth Mission, Operation Torch on hard. No idea how long it took, but it was the craziest slug fest ever. At the ramps there was a stalemate for hours. The dead tanks meant I couldn't rush with armor, and their constant sniper attacks were keeping my men from advancing. Finally the key...tons of antitank guns, lots of my own snipers, supported by infantry, and the occasional morter. Final casualty count - Germany Casualties = 7445men and 439 vehicles. Commonwealth Casualties = 2511 men and 164 vehicles. I $#!@#%@# love this game!!!

P.S. Anyone know how best to push dead tanks out of your way?

Ever wanted to fight a war, more so a World War that too in real time,than this is your game.It is an absolute mammoth of a game.Men of war assault squad is not for the faint of heart, so weak of heart read it at your own risk.


Men of war assault squad is a game well crafted ,to suit the need of any five years old ,who ever wanted to or did or does play with toy soldiers.The game has more than one campaigns and you can play in the skirmish mode as any of the allied nations,the common wealth even Germany.You start off each game with a basic squad and as you progress through, you have to capture enemy flag points to gain more troops or bonuses.There is smooth progression through levels as you capture each check point.At first generally light vehicles are allowed,at the next point you get your hands on heavier automobile troops.Than gradually bombers and even ship bombardments.


One thing that is going to attract any tactician is the fact that as you play as various factions you have to face different terrain types like tundra,farms,cities,towns,desert, and in each you have to adapt to a different form of war fare.In some snipers may rule the roost, in others heavy tanks and infantry.Likewise you have at your disposal every ww2 unit type, that was ever used in this war in the game.There are realistic commands you can give to your units like suppress fire,fire machine gun,heal a unit,or drive a car.Which adds an aura of realism.



As you play through various factions, you are deigned to face various battlefields which they faced in the war.There are typically nine flagpoints to capture, to win a level or a battlefield and each checkpoint is vital for even leaving one out can force you not to win the battle and proceed to the next level.The game is atmospheric for as you play you face different types of conditions in which to not just keep fighting but to survive with the forces at your disposal.There are many pros to this brilliant game



--------------------------------PROS------------------------------

+ You get hands on experience of the war fought eons ago at the touch of a mouse
+ You get it at a pocket friendly rate
+ You get to experience what it was like commanding troops in the war
+ realistic damage
+ You get to change history as in the way battles were fought within a rigid storyline frame work

--------------------------------CONS------------------------------

Cant think of any and the game deserves its popularity but notabily there are two
- No morale for infantry units
- graphics are a bit out of date


All in all a complete game,7/10 .Its definitely worth the buy specially at such low prices and more so for people who like to play with or have played in their childhood with toy soldiers attempting not just to recreate history but to relive it.

This is a strategy/tatical game. I have always been sceptic to it. Probably because I never gave it a real shot.
It can't be compared to Company of Heroes and shouldn't be.

The game has a very realisitic damage table which means that an infantary dies just after 1-3 hits.
Facing a tank can be a deadly outcome which can whipe a squad within seconds.
I strongly recommend that you start off by playing the easy campaign to learn the basic and still be able to enjoy the game.

+ Realistic damage
+ Slower, tatical warfare
+ Real WW2 weapons and vehicles.
+ Control units (WASD+Mouse) or run, walk, phrone, suppressing fire etc.

- The missions are quite fun but they don't give you many units to play around with. The Germans doesn't have air support (famous stuka?) or any of their famous arty guns.
- Missions are too similar. No big change in layout
- AI are really buggy and stupid. You tell a vehicle to drive from A to B and it get stuck half way.
- The resupply system could have done automatic. I'm talking about letting a soilder go back and forth to resupply an artiliitery for e.g. This is something you need to do manually and having 2-3 arty's takes time to do. I don't mind that it takes time but you leave the whole battlefield open because you are busy to resupply guns.
- Multiplayer could have been so much better developed.

Overall I think this game lack of hungry developers. It seems lke they are happy about how the game runs or not runs.
IMO if they actually spent money and time to come up with a new fresh multiplayer, fix the AI's. a better hotkey system (QWERTY) this game can easily be a top strat game.
At current state 7/10 because it cost less then a dollar.

It's not that this is a <bad> game, it's just so unbelievably frustrating it's not worth your time. Your unit AI will need micromanaging down to the ammo they need to shoot guns. They are too stupid to pick up ammo from bodies automatically. If someone runs out of ammo they stand still and wait to die. Pathfinding is completly broken. For example: A squad needs to get into a trench, instead of jumping into the trench from the side they are closest to, they will run all the way around to the far end of the trench will there is a proper ramp, usually resulting in the entire squad getting gunned down. Medics need your guidance to heal thier mates. They will wait next to someone bleeding out, unless you take the time to select the medic and click on the downed guy the medic will not heal him. Tank movement needs constant micromanagement as well. If you want a tank to back up, it will decide on its own to do a 180 and expose it's ♥♥♥ to enemy fire.

There is no story mode, the single player "skirmishes" are based on battles from history and (all the achevements are from singleplayer btw) are very cookie cutter, you start with one unit and take objective capture points one by one to unlock more tanks that can be called in as reinforcements. Every skirmish mission is like this. Skirmish difficulty scales way to high very quickly. Your tanks often get oneshotted by seemingly inferior enemy tanks. Advancing with your tank is suicide as enemy AT guns are impossible to take out before your tanks are one shotted. Your AT guns? Usually goes like this:
MISS
MISS
BOUNCE
MISS
GLANCING HIT
If you decide to play this game kep the asprin close. And stretch your thumb and index finger for the ineviatble ALT-F4

♥♥♥♥ing awesome game!
Buy it!
You have a campaign
And an editor!
Sadly enough multiplayer is no more😟 R.I.P

But the game is still awesome!
I do reccomend installing mods after a while
You can do whatever you want in the editor!
You can find the editor in you steam apps folder
\steam\steamapps\common\men of war assault squad\mow_assault_squad_ed.exe

Iam pretty sure you thought what a noob he hasn't even played over 10 hours
Well...
I played a cracked version over 250 hours
Wanna know why i still bought the game even if i had a crack?
Because its ♥♥♥♥ing awesome! They deserve your money😝

The original Men of war is so much better.

That game had missions where you had to do specific things like hold out in a mansion, stealth across a village undetected, and unique memerable missions.

So far I could only see that it took the company of heroes route but made it even worse.

It's capture these zones and once you have them all you win.
