Men of War: Assault Squad

Men of War: Assault Squad features a completely new cooperative skirmish game mode with access to five different nations (Russia, Germany, USA, Commonwealth and, for the first time ever in the Men of War series, Japan) as well as increased realism and accessibility.
Players can get behind the controls of a tank to smash through obstacles, crush soldiers under their tracks and fire high-explosive shells at enemy emplacements, they can even take control of individual soldiers as they fight. As in previous games in the series, Men of War: Assault Squad includes the unique "direct control" feature which enables players to be in command of any unit using the WASD controls, rather than pointing and clicking.

Key Features:

  • Different historical settings and battlegrounds for every nation presented in the game allowing players to face distinct varieties of enemies and tactics
  • Unique hero units with powerful abilities such as increasing units' firepower, boosting morale or providing other advantages to defeat the enemy against all odds
  • Bonuses featuring remote controlled bombs that can flatten entire residential blocks, airstrikes to destroy incoming tank columns, special "For the Motherland!" charge attacks and many more
  • Improved and dynamic AI ensures that no two missions in the game will play out the same way, making each battle a new experience against an AI that really fights back
  • A great choice of various locations including Western Europe to Eastern Europe, North Africa and the Pacific area
  • The ability to play together with up to four friends in LAN or cooperative online play
  • New multiplayer maps and game settings
  • Improved multiplayer providing authentic use of equipment and vehicles
  • Overhauled infantry squads and the ability to purchase specific soldiers
  • More realistic weapon behavior and penetration values
  • A reworked artillery system providing innovative assault and defense strategies
  • New types of ammunition which increase the tanks' strength

    Vivid and tactically demanding, Assault Squad is a brilliant multiplayer game that's even better with friends. [June 2011, p.78]

  • This is one of the most immersive and fun strategy experiences around, so dig in.

  • Men of War: Assault Squad offers a rich and varied multiplayer component, as well as various improvements in terms of graphics and artificial intelligence. A must buy for fans of the series.

  • This is a superb game, despite the saturation of the genre and the overexploitation of the setting, thanks to is great freedom, objetive design and visual realism.

  • For a strategy game, Men of War: Assault Squad features great environments and nice graphics. Enjoy the game - Men of War: Assault Squad deserves it.

  • The old soldier shows his gregarious side. This is gruelling but great WWII action, spanning every theatre.

  • Men of War: Assault Squad is a great game for real-time strategy enthusiasts.

  • PC PowerPlay

    Difficult to get into and somewhat unintuitive, but so wonderfully tactical and complicated! [May 2011, p.74]

  • The new expansion for Men of War, issued as a stand-alone product, allows us to take part in skirmishes set in World War II. Its control focuses on infantry units and remains flexible and fluid, while improvements in artificial intelligence provide a valuable tactical product. One of the best options nowadays, whether this is the first time you approach a game like this or you are already a veteran of the genre.

  • The authentic Men of War: Assault Squad packs plenty of challenge for real-time strategy enthusiasts.

  • A modern vision of chess game, Assault Squad offers a micro strategic vision of war, giving the possibility to control a little party of soldiers up to the victory.

  • At its best, Men Of War: Assault Squad provides hours of tactical chin-stroking, some stonkingly memorable engagements, and a whole kit-bag of replayability, especially in co-op.

  • It's old style strategy, unforgiving, hard to learn and harder to master. If this is your kind of stuff, you'll love it.

  • LEVEL (Czech Republic)

    Interesting, although limited development of good RTS towards multiplayer. This game is not a groundbreaker but if you like playing cooperative military action games it has a great potential to entertain you. [Issue#203]

  • A well rounded multiplayer extension of the classic Men of War formula, hurt most by technical issues and a steep learning curve. Worth a look for fans of the series.

  • There's no doubt that the gameplay of Men of War is brilliant, but seeing as Assault Squad is only a multiplayer expansion and features a steep learning curve, it's hard to justify the $35 asking price. Fortunately, those seeking a more campaign-based experience won't have to wait long - a Vietnam-themed title is due to be released shortly.

  • Recommended for RTS fans and those who can accept that the first hours are kind of hard, who will be rewarded with a fun and addictive game.

  • In no way an easy game, and probably an overwhelming experience for most people, but also the closest thing we'll get to the battles of WWII without a time machine.

  • Quotation forthcoming.

  • The total effect of the expansion pack is still positive (multiplayer is still fun; even the single-player has its uses) but there are a few worrying signs – the introduction of hero units and special abilities and the inward-looking nature of the entire game (SP as preparation for MP).

  • For as much as I was excited to play Men of War: Assault Squad, I was bitten in the ass by entering with no foreknowledge of the game.
