**** 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.

Men of War is a great game. The campaign is challenging and offers a wide array of units, strategies and tactics. MoW also features multiplayer and LAN so you can play in games with up to 16 people. The game also comes with a free mission editor so you can create your own maps and missions. Okay the AI is quite bad and the voice overs aren't perfect but over all this is a spectacular game with rich and diverse gameplay

LOVE THIS GAME! I go back to Company of Heroes after playing Men of War, machine guns and explosions actually kill people! The campaign can be quite challenging but that is a good thing, several different ways to complete each mission and the campaign can be played in coop with up to 4 people!

The best modable RTS game with a great battle system.

Why modable? Because vanilla is kinda lame(too less troops and stuff).

What mod I recommend? You still can download some, I can recommend moddb Iron Cross(you find it via the download section(get the version of Lucianus)).

Have fun :)

This game is my favorite game ever! In the single player it makes you feel cunning and smart but is still tough! While in the multiplayer you get annihilated. But the biggest and best feature of this game is... the editor! It is very useable and powerful you could use it for a great mission or you can just have silly fun! (Most of the time I'm doing the second) My only complaint is the defence missions! No matter what you do you either win or lose it's a matter of luck! When you have a line of defence and a enemy army there is nothing to do besides watch and hope it does well! But really this is a great game I would recommend this any day.
