Men of War servers are officially down, Gamespy is gone, but you can still relive the Nostalgic moment by downloading Gameranger (https://www.gameranger.com/), Sort of like Hamachi but you can play with others around the world in a sort of LAN community. The Community is nice and the cost of this game is 5 dollars. This game will usually be found on sale for cheap and its a well worth game! Don't let Gamespy get to you! Downloaded Gameranger and you can play anytime you want, Host or join other servers with people you don't or do know!

tldr; buy

Mission 1:

Your 8 soldiers and a tank versus ~200 germans, 10 APCs, multiple anti tank emplacements, a few panzers, and artillery fire.

If I wanted to play Dark Souls i'd go buy Dark Souls.

terrible voice acting, they cant decide whether they want british russian or german so they mixed the accents together. the american accent is cheesy, though still better than the russian/german one. but thats my only complaint, the game is very very good with very fun missions and many ways to complete them and many secondary objectives you can complete.

Even for a older game it's realy good and so hard! but at the same time fun. Me personally i love to mod the crap out of it then after completing a missions replay and do it with a million E75's :P. It's very stratagy based and can easily mkae you rage.... it's veyr very difficult and missions are not like call of duty where it only takes ten minutes.. on MOW missions take alonggg time to cplete usually. Definetly recoend it also considering it's only five dollars!

The game itself is AMAZING. Well until today. My entire game stopped working and it won't load when I try to enter the editor or the actual game itself. So I guess it was fun while it lasted, but I can't get it to work. So I'd say it's not worth the $5 .

Great WWII RTS. Highly reccommended, plus, mostly always on sale. If anyone is looking for multiplayer, friend and message me. I know a way. Single gets boring after a while you beat everything.

This is a great game. It has probably about the most realistic gameplay you will ever get from an RTS and it can be very fun to play. Watch out though, although not incredibly complicated it IS a hard game, even more so if you, like me, refuse to play on easy. Ever.
Although the voice-acting is terrible, the graphics are aged and the interface is not to write home about either, making the micromanagement (which is pretty much something you are constantly doing when playing Men of War) a little frustrating at times, the gameplay overall is really good. Also, it makes it all the more rewarding when successfully finishing a mission.

The singleplayer covers 3 campaigns (Soviet, German, Allied), consisting out of 19 missions total, and 5 non-linear bonus missions. As of now, I am busy doing the Soviet one, which will probably take me quite some time to finish, for the missions are really long and hard. The storylines cover some of the less famous battles of WW2, all squad-based.

All in all, if a challenging and realistic (relatively) modern warfare RTS is what you are looking for, you cannot go wrong with Men of War, even more so with the ridiculous price tag of €5,-. Less if you buy it on sale and/or in a package. Men of War is a VERY unique RTS and probably one of the best I ever played.

Best WWII and RTS game I've ever bought...
$1.24 I will never regret spending. Really cheap for a fun game. Thank the Asians and the moon for a sale.

I looted Germans during a mission and my squad of Russian troops now has a guy weilding the all-mighty MG42. I can even loot Pumas and get MG34s with 1000-count ammo.

If the campaign is too hard, try the editor. Endless fun!

Also Serious Review
Best war game ever made. I bought Men of War seeing video of humourous battles of 100 X versus 1000 Y but also I never tried RTS and the only WWII game I ever played (on PC) is GMod modded sillyness. But I though, I oughta try it out. I started the campaign and had to terrorize a Russian village filled with Germans. Failed all three of my attempts, but I saw the editor and gave it a go.

Thats when the game stole my life.

Im here a few months from now, I got mods and learned how to fly planes in MOW, the tactics, gamplay, even campaign/mission building. I came back and gave this game a serious part of my review to show its true content.

Conclusion
1942/10 Would Poland again.

MULTIPLAYER!
Thanks to my best friend, and this fellow: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=658531385 I never stopped.

Played untill 11:30PM EST, I got over 100 hours played.

This is a gem that runs on GEM, a must have for any friends who likes RTS and WWII!

- Captured enemy war base using only a knife

- Saw Sasha Kovlevski speaking in perfect english

- Destroyed a King Tiger with a molotov

- Threw a knife through Halftrack's armor and killed it's driver

- Spawned myself a tank in editor and enjoyed rolling through hordes of little enemy cars.

- Killed a Nazi and wore his hat

11/10 would kill Nazis for hats again

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.
