I have a love/hate relationship with the Men of War series in general. On the one hand, if you are looking for an accessible World War 2 RTS that focuses on tactics and realism there is really no other option. On the other, the games can be such an unbalanced mess with dumb AI that will make your head spin.
The main issue with MoW: AS is that the developer can never seem to get the game quite right in terms of balance or content. It feels as if they just had a bigger budget or better research the game would be amazing. As it stands the game only really shines if you mod it and there are quite a few good ones out there. I would only recommend MoW:AS if you are already a fan of the series and are willing to mod the game or you find it on a Steam sale and want to try a World War II RTS other than the "arcadey" Company of Heroes.
