WALL OF WORDS INCOMING
Men of War: Assault Squad is horrible.
It is. Its the same engine used years ago since Faces of War.
I can't find anything decent in this game.
Graphics are the same, the ruthless unforgiving campaign in Men of War and Faces of War has been replaced with a repetitive, boring skirmish mode where you can spawn troops at will. The objective the is same in every mission, go capture all these points and win the mission. It is not fun to do that over and over again. But then the people who bought this game might say about the graphics "WAT U TALKING ABOUT U FEG THERE R NEW GREHPICS" Well. So we have this awsomely HD textured M4A3 Sherman with more ploygons, and then directly beside it theres a Panzer IV that has used the same texture and amount of polygons since Faces of War. Its the same thing with the soldiers. New awsome hat texture with more polygons! Until you realise right below it is a soldier skin that has been once again, been here since Faces of War. They also removed a crap ton of skins and vehicles. For no apparent reason.
There was a multiplayer, yes, there WAS
a multiplayer mode. Its gone. Forever.
Its been shut down by Gamespy. More or less Assault squad was aimed at multiplayer instead of a action packed campaign. I've hardly had any experience with multiplayer as I joined the wagon too late.
There is a modding community like Men of War. But now that community is slowly dying out as the release of Men of War: Assault Squad 2. There is only one mod that you can look toward to have a fun campaign and that is "Europe at War." But after that mod has been released and been played, they will be moving on to MoW:AS2 leaving the modding community to die out at this point. Sure there are other mods but they don't seem to be polished and some times shoved out of developement for demanding users and updates would be added gradually. Others are abandoned never to be updated again. You may say the SirHinkel's missions are better. But in all fairness its basicly the same as the skirmish missions but with German Soldiers Mod. I tried it.
If you want different types of missions, you either have to wait for the mods to be completed or create a mission yourself. Which is not an easy task as there is no tutorial to help you. Sure there are some youtubers that teach you a thing or two, but only teach the basic stuff to make it work to some extent. If you want to make a mission like in MoW or FoW. Your going to have to buy those games to learn all the scripts and so on.
Although Mow and FoW are really showing their age. (Graphically and mechanically.)
This review applies to Men of War: Assault Squad 2. Exact. Same. Thing. Other than the fact it has multiplayer which will shut down several years from now.
Most importantly THIS GAME IS IN GERMAN HANDS.
The original company, Best Way, which is a Ukrainian company, seemed to had no involvement with this game.
