Awesome gameplay and unique features that give you unlimited control over your forces... The only thing that is not good, is the translation in certain game areas... Cut scenes are translated ok and the voice is well picked, but doesn't relay the original intonations of the Russian language... in game translation sounds silly though... but this is, after all a Russian (Ukrainian) game... If you don't know the language it will make the game seem very fake in terms of voice. (I am now looking for the original Russian release) Bad things out of the way this game is simply awesome, In terms of control, strategy and value. I can't ever get tired of playing this game. Combat is amazingly detailed, exciting and memorable... Graphics are excellent !!! Might be missing some special DirectX 10 effects, but nevertheless is simply beautiful to look at and play. Don't know why Gamespot rated the graphics as dated...!? The game is designed with a very specific look that the developers achieved in brilliant colors ! I have to give this game credit !!! Might have some minor things missing for certain people... But it deserves a 10 based on my judgment.
I wanted to play this game for quite a while. I enjoy RTS games, and it's one of the few genres that I still enjoy military combat in. It's definitely a quality game. It runs smoothly, it still looks nice, and it has a ton of nice strategic quirks. My problem is that it's horribly boring. As a fan of RTS games, I'm cool with just managing the action and watching it unfold. This game borders on a non-interactive experience in my opinion. You click on a group of enemies, and wait for them to run into your bullets, and that's about it. There are many options, but you won't use most of them. Overall, the RTS is well designed, but the AI is terribly easy, which is among he worst things you can to to RTS games.
Men of War game's have allways make you feel like your commanding a real army with hundrerds of soldiers Take the fight in this amazing World War 2 game and blow up your enemy's fighting to death each part of the game count's very much but if you finished the game or want some extra fun why not try multiplayer! it will be way more fun fighting against real people than fighting with an AL right? so what are you waiting for?! buy it!
I myself am not a person who pleys a lot of strategy games but still I enjoyed Men of War, for the simple reason it provides true strategy and a interesting campaign. Note also you can install hundreds of mods, like a zombie one or Star Wars so if you don't like war games you can use it to play some good mods.
Men of War is very similar to Company of Heroes in many aspects, yet different enough to stand out. One thing that makes it different is the fact that you can control units individually, managing their inventories as well. In a typical RTS you don't have to worry about a unit's ammo, in this game you do. It plays very much like a tactics game, but still with the RTS feel to it. For example you can order some units to guard an area, take direct control of one unit, having them run over to an abandoned tank, hop in and then drive that around to flank the enemy. There's a lot of that sort of interesting, dynamic feel to it. In some ways, this game seems like an ARMA game, but in RTS form, and it's great. If you enjoyed ARMA and/or Company of Heroes, this game is certainly up your ally. Definitely worth a try.
