Men of War: Condemned Heroes
This game comes with a complimentary Steam key.
Men of War: Condemned Heroes tells the story of one of the infamous Soviet penal battalions during the WWII. These battalions are famous for being formed under Stalin’s "No step back!" order #227. They consisted of court-martialed officers that were given a chance to redeem their crimes, or incompetence, in blood by serving as the lowest enlisted rank in a battalion that was assigned the most dangerous tasks. These battalions’ images are surrounded by many myths, and this game tells the truth about these regiments based on real evidence from their former members.
Take command of one of these notorious companies and lead it to victory against all odds through most of the war on the Eastern front. Fight from desperate battles in 1942 in the area of Volyn in the Ukraine, to the massive operation “Bagration” in the Brest area, Magnush bridgehead and Warsaw area in Poland and finally to attacks on the German Altdam and Stettin near the end of the war.
- Ultimate single player experience – 4 campaigns telling the story of the penal company from crucial 1942 to victorious 1945.
- Truth about Soviet penal battalions from their former members.
- New ultra-detailed photorealistic human models, faces and uniforms.
- Bonus single player missions focusing on other non-penal army units.

Men of War: Condemned Heroes is very repetitive, uncreative and uninnovative. While the idea is not bad, it fails to turn that idea into a playable experience. The controls seem very lacking, and so does the user interface, which can be hard to navigate. The missions are repetitive, the units are pretty much the same like in the original Men of War, and the game is riddled with bugs.
The idea of the game may not be bad, but it's execution is very poor, and has made this game an experience that is better to avoid, than embrace.
