this game is amzaing, but the voice acting is....... IS THE BEST THING EVAR. I MEAN IT SOUNDS LIKE THEY HIRED REAL RUSSIANS AND GERMANS TO VOICE ACT THE TROOPS, AND IT TOTALLY DOSEN'T SOUND LIKE A CHEAP AMERICAN ACTOR TRYING TO SOUND RUSSIAN.
This game is my favorite game ever! In the single player it makes you feel cunning and smart but is still tough! While in the multiplayer you get annihilated. But the biggest and best feature of this game is... the editor! It is very useable and powerful you could use it for a great mission or you can just have silly fun! (Most of the time I'm doing the second) My only complaint is the defence missions! No matter what you do you either win or lose it's a matter of luck! When you have a line of defence and a enemy army there is nothing to do besides watch and hope it does well! But really this is a great game I would recommend this any day.
I find Men of War to be the best in the series, I find it a big step up from faces of war, and I actually feel it's better than the newer Assault Squad games. it has a story albeit its read by someone who sounds like a history teacher, and some of the voice acting is pretty laughable, but this game has realistic physics, and a great ballistic system making tank, and gun duels to be very exciting, and stressful! Watching your tank rounds pinging off of a Panzer's armor is pretty scary, and Angles and armor thickness play a part in it too. I love that ♥♥♥♥. The difficulty, well...this series is known for it's difficulty and long missions, and I can easily say this is one of the hardest strategy games of the Real Time non base building type, the AI is exciting to play agaisnt. The graphics are not the best, but with some of the newer features on graphics cards, this game can be forced to look very nice, very advanced controls (you can even control your units like a shooter) and a fast (but scalable) pace
An incredibly underrated game, from an awesome series. Many compare it to COH but Men of War deserves some credit in the fact that they cover a wide range of weapons, units, and vehicles, with a much more advanced ballistic system, and a much more advanced control scheme, they also cover missions and scenarios not seen in other game along with it's varied objectives that bounce you back and forth across the map it makes for a pretty exciting game. Much more than your average skirmish the computer war game
This is just the best strategy game I have ever played, maybe even the best game i have ever played. For those of you who dont know men of war is a real time strategy game where you can take direct controll over one of your units and play as him (works like a twin stick shooter). The whole series is just genious it has fun missions epic battles and even a little element of story. The missions are like a pazzle and you are basicly free to do the mission how ever you like for exemple: if you need to infiltrate a base you could try tom look for a hole on the fance,you could make a hole yourslef using an AT grenade,you could wait for enemy patrol try to steal theyr tank, you could try to snipe everyone in the base from far away or just try to just walk in from the main door.
this review applies not only on the original men of war but on all the series.
if you havent played it yet u should, no u MUST try it!
Thanks to a silly physics engine and an option to directly control your units like an isometric shooter, memorable carnage can erupt from even tiny shootouts. Whether it's pulling off Commandos-style raids on trenches or sending convoys of armoured behemoths through walls, Men of War is a delight. Every soldier has a name and the potential to be a hero with one tap of the direct control button. It's clever, quick and lethal.
Just bought the game and it is amazing, the details in the game is beyond anything i've ever seen in a game like this. The mechanics are seamless and easy and the gameplay is INTENSE. I may have finally found a game that replaces Empire: Total War and coming from me that says alot.

Men of War... well, what can I say!
What an outstanding release. Truely remodelling the idea of RTS, not only to the vanilla game itself, but to the endless mod list created by the community. GEM2 engine is a very good modding platform. Thank you Best Way Games for such a game engine marvel!
