As a MoW Franchise fan, I can't believe how BAD this game is. Story: It's an RTS that narrates a lot of the stories (most of them exaggerated) of the infamous penal platoons that served in the eastern front on WWII. It's not dramatic, and the stories that could've been told with this jewel were thrown to waste. Maybe because Russia now tries to "forget and erase" the mistakes that the Soviet Union did, but who knows... Gameplay: It's the easiest of the MoW franchise, the level design is LAME, because of it's a linear map in most if not all cases. It doesn't give you strategic options, you have to go in a straight line killing everything til you reach the end of the map. I can't believe this are the same guys that made the First MoW, that is a Jewel on WWII RTS games. Music and Sound: The music it's one of the best things of this game, because it manages to transmit the heroic feeling of being on one of those death squads, but the sound, perhaps the biggest MoW flaw, it's still unpolished. The studio should've learnt by now that they need to recreate a battlefield sound, not a peaceful and quiet landscape if "nothing is happening". Multiplayer: It's the SAME multiplayer that's been going since MoW 1, which it's really good, but we have to criticize the lack of innovation. Innovation: No one. Difficulty: It's really easy. I should recommend to you this game if you're new to strategy and even more if you haven't played a MoW game before, or any RTS. But if you're not a noob, this game it's not a challenge, it's almost a 2D - Scroller. Overall: YOU DON'T WANT TO BUY THIS GAME. This could've been perfectly a DLC for MoW 1 or MoW: RT, not a standalone game. This one in particular is a way to steal money.
