"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

I'm on the back foot... Enemy infantry made it past my front line, a situation that compromises my whole team, I purchase and sent out a Half-Track with mounted .50 caliber heavy machine gun to clear them up.. however on the way an the derbies from a building hit by artillery hits happens to hit and take out the gunner.. Time for a bit of fast micro.. Upon reaching the area the enemy was last spotted there is no sign of them, they have likely scattered into various cover (all units in a squad can be individually controlled in fine detail or directly controlled) .. I spot an enemy half track! The hole in my front line is bigger than I thought. I decide to play Rambo with my driver, I dismount, detach the .50 cal gun from it with my driver and take some TNT from the back. I command my soldier to only return fire preventing him from opening fire and giving away his location, I tell him to get down on the ground and crawl to a nearby bush. I know my empty half track presents an irresistible target for the enemy to steal... the bait and trap set, I switch my attention to re-enforcing my front lines, perhaps a sniper to spot and an AT-gun patch up the line, cant afford more infantry yet, I spread my lines a little thinner. I spot the red dots in my backline on my mini map, lucky I caught it! Switching back to Rambo in time to see the enemy attempt to jack my halftrack. I put him in direct contrtol more, and take my time aiming a perfect shot at the enemy half track approaching, some men already disembarking and running for my bait.. FIRE.. ??????I sim-judged the distance! He's far enough away that my trusty .50 Cal cannot penetrate his Armour, backup plan, I aim for his tracks as he turns to escape.. come on.. yes! I manage to break the track off the left side, disabling his movement. A man hops out to begin repairs... I put a .50 Cal in his skull.. he won't try that again. I mow down enemy infantry spotted until I've run out of bullets. I switch to my pistol, move into an impact creator recently created, there I hide hoping to find an opportunity to use the TNT to maximize damage. Rambo has played his part... but all the while I have been equally creative with any of the hundred odd units on the field....
One of the better strategy games I have played with realistic world war 2 content.. A bit on the repetitive side but for hardcore strategists, this game is a must play. If you loved Company of Heros, then you will love Men of War Assault Squad. A little more time consuming in strategizing and managing your squads. Very Realistic...
This is the most polished and best title in the series.This is the title to rule them all, because the Men of War games are just more of the same. It isn't something bad, because you won't miss out much by not purchasing and playing other titles except for the campaigns. Men of War is a squad-based tactical war game. You are in charge of a squad with each member having a inventory to manage. There are a lot of very realistic(and cool!) features like bullets ricochetting off tanks and using almost everything as a cover. Also your squad has the ability to repair vehicles. The different missions will usually start with a small map and expand as you progress through the objections. The mission objections are very varied and require different tactics to accomplish. A mission will take you from one to two hours depending on how fast you can figure out the game's mechanics. Technically the game may be a little bit dated in the graphics department since it still uses the same engine as the first title from 2009. Nonetheless the game looks totally fine. The controls take some time getting used to because they do not follow your typical control scheme of other games. Especially camera controls will take a lot of time to get used to. I'd recommend the game to strategy lovers, who love to manage a tight budget/squad in this case.
