Just finished the Soviet Campaign.
I loved it. It's very well made.
Especially the cutscenes.

Edit 1: Finished all campaigns. The rest is not as good, or long as the Soviet one. But still worth playing.

i think they should add mods like a zombie mod for the game in this case i mean they should add a workshop for this or transfer the mods from men of war assault squad 2 to it.

Got 100 men, 20 tanks, 5 artilleries and aaaalll the time in the world to wait on you Nazi scrotumflakes.


-OH GOD THEY HAVE BETTER ARTILLERY-


Defense wiped clean. Entire enemy army emerges from the treeline and begins advancing across the battlefield.


-OH GOD YES REINFORCEMENT TANKS-


Organize counterattack and push my tank division to the front lines.


-ALL MY TANKS KILLED BY LONE NAZI SUPERTANK-



Would lose all hope and regain it all only to lose it again, again. 10/10

The voice acting is hilariously bad. But it's a pretty damn good RTS. You can even play as individual infantrymen, so that's a plus. But then again, its voice acting is just godawful, so I hope you enjoy playing with the volume muted and subs on.

Combine a solid single-player experience with in-depth stratagey gameplay that almost reaches RPG-levels of inventory managment, and the fact that this game is a modern classic as it was the first Men of War game (which is now a large series), this game is great. IF you prefer larger scale battles with a little less micro-managment, I would recommend Men of War Assault Squad 2. However, if you're looking for a solid single player game and don't want to bother with the rather excellent and always expanding Steam workshop for Assault Squad 2 (one of the best communities of developers out there), give the original Men of War a shot.

This game is actually pretty good. There's alot of unit variation and serves its role as a WWII game well. This is very different from most RTS games, as enemies drop armour, bandages, ammo and guns, so you can command units to loot dead corpses.

Tanks are very powerful, like they were in WWII, seemingly unstoppable.

However, this game is very hard, I ended up getting a refund because it was so hard. Before buying this, finish the demo version. I played on easy mode and it seemed impossible. This was also the first mission, 4th objective.

Its overall very good, but really hard.

this game is amzaing, but the voice acting is....... IS THE BEST THING EVAR. I MEAN IT SOUNDS LIKE THEY HIRED REAL RUSSIANS AND GERMANS TO VOICE ACT THE TROOPS, AND IT TOTALLY DOSEN'T SOUND LIKE A CHEAP AMERICAN ACTOR TRYING TO SOUND RUSSIAN.

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.

Hmm... how should I put this?
Imagine Arma, okay? Imagine all of the realism, immersion, tension that has Arma featured. Now, since Arma set in modern world, how about change them into WW2. Nice, isn't it? Alright, now change the FPS camera into isometric top down that can zoom in into your unit's scale.

Now you get Men of War.
10/10
