"Men at War: Red Tide is a little dated but when it comes to gameplay, this is the highlight of the title. So put on your black coat, grab your gun and start liberating a country! BANG!" - ImpulseGamer.com
"if you enjoyed the rich scenarios of previous games in the series you probably own this game already. If you don't, and if you're looking for an entry point into the phenomenon, this is as stellar a place to start as any." - CPUGamer.com
Men of War: Red Tide is a sequel to the critically acclaimed RTS Men of War. Red Tide introduces a new story driven campaign based on the writings of Soviet scribe Alexander Zorich, it also includes dozens of new or upgraded units and weapons.
Men of War: Red Tide is a stunning mixture of RTS and a third-person action that introduces a new fighting force known for its brutal efficiency during the height of World War II. Played out across more than 20 missions, Men of War: Red Tide allows to take command of the feared “Black Coats,” the nickname given to Soviet Marines, an elite combat group specializing in engagements near the shoreline.
The player has direct control of new game units including the Black Coats, tanks, self-propelled guns, armored trains, landing craft, artillery and new enemy emplaced weapons to capture and use. New air support options include fighters, bombers, hydroplanes; cruisers, destroyers and gun boats which provide naval fire support.
Fighting during the Black Sea Campaigns of WWII, history buffs and WWII aficionados will recognize theaters of battle such as Odessa, Sevastopol, Theodosia, Eltingen, Nikolaev and Constanta.

If you like single player RTS, this is for youalbero78 | May 17, 2013 | See all albero78's reviews »
Men of War brought a lot of innovations in the world of RTS. Graphics and gameplay are really well-done. You will need a learning process, but once you're used to keyboard shortcuts and micro-management, saving a wounded sniper will give you a lot of satisfation. This Red Tide is a nice (stand-alone) addition to the previous chapter "Men of War": it consolidates the gameplay adding a very nice single player campaign (attention: no multiplayer here). You will see that the missions in Red Tide are more "commandos" style and you might use some stealth skills since your men are outnumbered. I really enjoyed the whole single player campaign. If you have a choice I strongly recommend to grab the first chapter "Men of War" because it is more complete and various. If you already own it and you want more single-player action, consider this Red Tide as well.
Great but with some mistakes.Sharptap | Sept. 26, 2012 | See all Sharptap's reviews »
A nice continuation of Men Of War, without multiplayer though. The AI is awful , and you will loss millions of men because they will run into machine gun nests and fail to toss grenades over walls.There is some bugs but you can pass through them. The game can be hard sometimes and can be a real challenge.The new units are great and the graphics could be better.if you want WW 2 RTS COH clone this game is good for you.
Good game but very hardpanz3r88 | Aug. 5, 2012 | See all panz3r88's reviews »
Men of War Red Tide is a game for player really expert in RTS games. The game is really hard and if you make a simple mistake you will easily fail the mission, so you must plain carefully each move and use in the best way all your available men. Each soldier has an inventory you must manage in the best way to have in all situation the correct resources to complete the mission. If you like RTS and very hard challenges these is the game for you, if you are not good in this game genre you will find it frustating and you will hardly complete even the first mission

Red Tide is an expansion pack for MoW. For people not familiar with it - it is realistic strategy that focuses on troop micromanagement. It is quite a challenge compared to other strategies. Players must plan all their actions very carefully and fight against clever AI. It is a special joy when a well executed attack finally succeeds after several attempts. Red Tide offers long single player campaign with 20 missions. It is a well polished and historically accurate WW2 game, strategy fans should not miss it.

I was a big fan of the FoW and SOLDIERS, but what they've done with MoW, it's just a very, very bad game, with boring missions, and poor controls. Don't play it, kill it with fire!
