"The alternative to the blockbuster Company of Heroes, the 'East' Variant of the two. More emphasis on realism and personal micro-management. Amazing."

I have invested over forty hours into this game and I haven't even finished the German or Us campaign yet. It has amazing replayability and the multiplayer was awesome before it was shut down. It is an amazing realism based game that has almost endlees replayability. I can't recomend this enough to any RTS loving gamer.

The game is fun to fault. If your wanting a well thought out stradegy ww2 game that has mediocre graphics and a kinda bad story line, this game is for you. I tried playing multiplayer though and could't connect, so there might not be online multiplayer anymore. all in all it's a pretty fun,classical game that in would recommend.

A superb tactical inventory management simulator.

Men of War is at its best when it is exploring the intricacies of men carrying things. Gripping shuffling-crap-back-and-forth action is, however, occasionally interrupted by other soldiers with different uniforms who show up at random and shoot at your own troops. The only function of this feature, as far as I can tell, is to deplete your own ammunition; if one of your units dies it's either entirely shruggable or a nigh-mission-failure anyway, so it doesn't matter much.

And ammunition micromanagement is what Men of War excels at. It's enthralling to send a truck scurrying around the map to scrape up spare machine gun ammunition for your tank which is locked in combat with a large number of enemy soldiers who are unreasonably insistent upon its demise. There is also tons of pixelhunting fun to be had trying to click on the thing you want to click on, with tension provided by the ever-present possibility of accidentally telling a soldier to take cover on the wrong side of a wall or do something similarly bat-guano stupid.

(I'm not sure why Steam says I don't recommend this game; honestly, it's the best man-to-man cartridge-counting game around.)

**** 4 out of 5 stars in my opinion.
Yes, I really enjoyed playing this game. Graphics, for 2009, are quite good, explosions are well done, and it is played in real-time. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is smart, but can be overcome as it tends to repeat most of its moves at each mission restart (predictability). But, you will be CHALLENGED to get through some of the missions and strategy will be required as the enemy will change its strategy in ways that you may not expect. The AI will provide some "surprises" which makes it entertaining. It will keep you alert (situation awareness) and busy planning your strategy. I found it to be quite ENGAGING and felt determined to finish it - and did. It has been 5 years since I played it, but I remember it as one of my favorites in this genre. Try the DEMO and decide.

It isn't for everyone, and the difficulty and learning curve are both high. It's commonly compared to Company of heroes. Men of War has more functionality but less polish. You can do more things, for example, steal enemy vehicles and weapons, and with the line of sight, stealth is sometimes a viable option. I'd reccommend it if you like Company of Heroes and are looking for a more indepth experience. The campaign is great once you understand how to play. For Multiplayer, you might want to try Men of war : Assault Squad.

I recomend this classic and epic game i have played for years. This game is definetly a 10 out of 10 and 5 of 5 stars.

you will not be dissapointet if you going to like a high replay abilty.
(play and doing your missions in your way or with the craziest tactics you can ever think of)

The diffuculty changes from camaping to campaing and missions to missions too. from easy to the imposseble. (depening on your tactics)

You can do stealth in Men of War and it is relaible, not like an another RtS game has to fired on many times while here you can take them out with a one single silent hit.

They include an advanced system for vechiles that let you see the shells bounce off from shots to shots.

And best of all, direct fire. controll your aim on your selected solider or tank and shoot to get the kills and make an advantage on your battlefield.

Men of War has is hard to learn in the start, my exsperience when i first played the mission number one, i failed endlessy. when i devolopet a tactic that will work it began to be more and more advanced, while i am imroving for hours and hours. Men of war might not be for evryone but if you loved to play Company of Heroes you would defenitly like this one.

I definetly recommend you to try out Demo if you are not sure about to buy Men of War. I palyed 1 month on the demo for i was adicted to the game. And thats why i think you will not be dissapointed.

So realistic, I use this game to base other game's realism. It's both a fun sanbox and an intense command sim. Be prepared to be outwitted, brains over brauns here, as simple as the combat is it's up to you to turn a fight to your advantage. There is no win all weapon it's how you use it. For instance, I used to never spawn any vehicles other than a puma, for this reason, every person I had to fight, would have a much slower and less agile counterpart. Simply hide the puma behind a building lets say, send infantry to distract his piece of steel, send in the puma when he isn't looking, and there you go you just wrecked a 100 point tank with a 25 point scout vehicle. And you can't complain that it's just a scout, because in real war all options are open, and this game really gives you all options. MUST PLAY FOR STRATEGY LOVERS.

Great game. Incredibly it has the same faith like Midtown Madness 2, even thou it's old, it's community is huge!
Only problem is that it doesn't like my internet connection and the graphics (they max out on a HD 5450), LOD is not really big.
