Description

"this is one of the most immersive and fun strategy experiences around, so dig in." - StrategyInformer.com

"I can only think of three decent reasons not to buy Assault Squad. (1) You fancy a break from the series. (2) You are a sucker for a story... (3) Between you and your local games shop is an emplaced MG 42, two PaK 40s, and a dug-in Tiger tank." - PCGamer.com


Men of War: Assault Squad is the new title in the "Men of War" series. Assault Squad takes place across the globe during the height of World War II and features a completely new cooperative skirmish game mode with access to five different nations (Russia, Germany, USA, Commonwealth and- for the first time ever in the Men of War series- Japan) as well as increased realism and accessibility. The expansion pack will deliver fans and newcomers an intense new WW2 spectacle with almost limitless replayability.

Like previous games in the series, Men of War: Assault Squad includes the unique "direct control" feature which enables players to maneuver units using the directional keys, rather than pointing and clicking. PC Generals can get behind the controls of a tank to smash through obstacles, crush soldiers under its tracks and fire armor-piercing shells at enemy emplacements, or take control of individual soldiers as they fight.


What makes the new skirmish game mode so unique?

  • Different historical settings and battlegrounds for every nation will ensure that each time players will face a different variety of enemies and tactics.

  • Unique hero units for every nation with powerful abilities such as increasing units' firepower, boosting morale or providing other advantages to defeat the enemy against all odds.

  • Fantastic bonus abilities such as remote controlled bombs that can flatten entire residential blocks, airstrikes able to destroy incoming tank columns, special "For the Motherland!" charge attacks and many more.

  • Improved and dynamic AI ensures that no two games will play out the same way, making each battle a new experience against an AI that really fights back.

  • Improved and dynamic AI ensures that no two games will play out the same way, making each battle a new experience against an AI that really fights back.

  • Choose from a variety of scenario locations ranging from Western Europe, to Eastern Europe, North Africa and the Pacific.

  • The ability to play this impressive game mode with up to four friends in LAN or cooperative online play.


More new features:

New multiplayer maps and game settings.

  • Improved multiplayer balancing to provide a more authentic use of equipment and vehicles.

  • Overhauled infantry squads and the ability to buy individual soldiers to suit players' needs.

  • More realistic weapon behavior and penetration values.

  • A reworked artillery system that provides innovative assault and defense strategies.

  • New types of ammunition that increase the depth of tank combat.

Good RTS with skirmish

iiilker99 | Dec. 23, 2013 | See all iiilker99's reviews »

Men of War was a good game , but It lacked a skirmish mode. And with Assault squad , we have skirmish mode now. In my opinion , this is the best game in series. Also , It still has got direct control so you can play your soldiers like a action game. And you can manage your soldiers inventory. Exciting graphics make the game even better. The game is really challenging (but enjoyable ,especially for RTS fans) and sometimes you will fail at easy mode. This game is a good choice for RTS players and a must buy for fans of Men of War series.

Great WW2 RTS

ivangroznyi1 | Nov. 6, 2013 | See all ivangroznyi1's reviews »

Men of War was good, but Men of War: Assault Squad is probably the best game in the series. It's more interesting and less monotoneous than Vietnam, and focused more on small forces and their actions. It is very enjoyable as a multiplayer game, so if you wanted a good multiplayer RTS it is the best Men of War game for this purpose. In this game it's very important to put the right person in the right place for the right task. Just as with other Men of War games, it takes some experience and practice before you are good at it, but if you like wargaming, you will surely enjoy mastering the game and find yourself disappointed with other less demanding games after playing this one.
