Men of War: Assault Squad is the brand new title in the Men of War series. This stand-alone takes place across the globe during the height of World War II and 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. Men of War: Assault Squad will deliver fans and newcomers an intense new WW2 spectacle with almost limitless replay ability.

Like previous games in the series, Men of War: Assault Squad includes the unique "direct control" feature which enables players to manoeuvre units using the WASD controls, rather than pointing and clicking. PC Generals can get behind the controls of a tank to smash through obstacles, crush soldiers under its tracks, fire armour-piercing shells at enemy emplacements, or take control of individual soldiers as they fight.
  • What makes the new skirmish game mode so unique?
  • Different historical settings and battlegrounds for every nation will ensure that each time players will face a different variety of enemies and tactics
  • Unique hero units for every nation with powerful abilities such as increasing units' firepower, boosting morale or providing other advantages to defeat the enemy against all odds
  • Fantastic bonus abilities such as remote controlled bombs that can flatten entire residential blocks, airstrikes able to destroy incoming tank columns, special "For the Motherland!" charge attacks and many more
  • Improved and dynamic AI ensures that no two games will play out the same way, making each battle a new experience against an AI that really fights back
  • Improved and dynamic AI ensures that no two games will play out the same way, making each battle a new experience against an AI that really fights back
  • Choose from a variety of scenario locations ranging from Western Europe, to Eastern Europe, North Africa and the Pacific

  • More new features:
  • The ability to play this impressive game mode with up to four friends in LAN or cooperative online play
  • New multiplayer maps and game settings
  • Improved multiplayer balancing to provide a more authentic use of equipment and vehicles
  • Overhauled infantry squads and the ability to buy individual soldiers to suit players' needs
  • More realistic weapon behavior and penetration values
  • A reworked artillery system that provides innovative assault and defense strategies
  • New types of ammunition that increase the depth of tank combat

Assault Squad is a Multiplayer expansion, although there are 16 Skirmish missions you can play single player, they are designed for Co Op play. There is no campaign.

The multiplayer aspect of the game has had a lot of attention, balancing the factions and fully incoporating the Japanese who are great fun to play with. Highlights are the mortar truck and kamikaze infantry. Frontlines has been streamlined and is now more fun although it is sometimes difficult to get a game started as Assault Zones is far more popular. In the latest patch (#2) DMS have added ranked servers and also a few more units including the Stug III. Each patch they have updated the tank models to high poly and resolution. The new Panther, Tiger and Shermans look awesome.

The Skirmish missions are set factions, so there are 3 for each side where you battle a pre set defending faction. This is not how alot of people percieve Skirmish, so for example one Mission is Battle of the Bulge, you are the USA and the AI is Germany. This can only be changed through a potential mod. Also the Skirmish missions dont give you access to the full range of units, however there are already mods changing this. Check out the DMS forums. There are 4 difficulty settings and if you are new to MoW, I strongly recommend starting on Easy. Even Normal can be tough to crack on your own. Hard should only be attempted with more seasoned players who work together and communicate. Mumble is a great piece of voice software which greatly aids Co Op gameplay. Overall whilst the Skirmish missions are similar in layout and units available, they offer hours of fun and Co Op is much more rewarding than playing on your own. On Hard 1 skirmish mission can take 2 hours + to complete. Heroic is another story.

Overall the support for Assault Squad since release has been amazing, adding new units, listening to the community feedback and really refining the online experience.

It is a shame that the frontend of the Multiplayer is not as user friendly as much of the community would like.

Its a tough game to master, but when you do it is a WW2 strategy experience like no other.

Keep a look out for Downloadable Content adding new Skirimish Missons, hopefully some defence based and also adding more units to the fray.

Just recieved this game last week and it's great! Not as hard & difficult
as the 1st installment.I bought MOW in '09.I just finished the 1st installment. The original is quiet hard to play and get into,but once you do it's great!! The only disappointments here are the missions per country are too short.Has a few bugs that need to be worked out.
This game is highly recommended!!!
