Decent game. Assault Squad builds on the premise of the original Men of War game- extreme realism, even if that realism becomes painfully annoying. I bought this game for my old Vista computer, and then just sort of left it there. Later, I realized I could use my CD-KEY that came with the retail version of this game to get a digital copy, which I could use on 8.1. Men of War is a game of ups and downs. It's really cool and exciting to see a squad of 10 mechanized infantry hold the line against a series of enemy attacks. 100 men strong, and you just think "wow", but when that same squad gets absolutely destroyed by multiple enemy tanks and armored cars, then you just sort of feel sad inside because you know that eventually, you will have to deal with 5 armored vehicles with AT grenades and short ranged rockets. The campaign, or "skirmish mode" as they call it, is a real dedication. It's not a pick up game, you really have to put time and effort into even one mission, which can last for hours. Defeat is a relative term in the singleplayer, as I have never actually lost, but rather quit out of rage, frustration, or sadness over losing so much ground. Another feature which leaves much to be desired is the "squad" feature. By default, clicking on an individual soldier creates a squad, so does dragging and selecting multiple units. Later on, in the late game, this "squad bar" becomes extremely cluttered and hard to navigate. Overall, if you're pretty good at RTS and looking for a genuine challenge, get this. However, be warned, it is not a casual game.
