“What Assault Squad does do is transform and reinvigorate Men Of War as a multi-player game, as well as set itself in stone as one of the greatest and grandest co-op games available.”
RockPaperShotgun

Update Notes

Men of War Assault Squad is affected by the GameSpy shutdown on the 31st of May. You can continue to play the game through LAN, DirectIP and GameRanger. If you want to make use of full Steamworks integration for multiplayer we recommend to choose Men of War: Assault Squad 2, which includes all content of the first part and much more.

About the Game

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

System Requirements

    • OS: Windows XP/Vista/7
    • Processor: 2.6GHz Processor or higher
    • Memory: 1GB or higher
    • Graphics: DX9c compatible GPU

Men of War Assault Squad is the best WW2 real-time tactics game! I've been following this game series ever since the original 'Soldiers Heroes of WW2'. When I tried the demo back then, and realized that you can take the shells out of your broken tank to load a stolen anti-tank gun, and you can scavenge the fallen bodies for weapons and ammunition, and you can take cover behind virtually everything, and you can drive tanks through buldings, I was immediately sold.

This amazing level of detail and authenticity is still present today, and it brings an immense level of control and different tactics that you can use. That comes at the expense of very much micromanagement and almost every key on the keyboard being assigned to some action. That makes it hard for newcomers to pick up, but once you memorized everything, you're going to have a blast.

The multiplayer component is a bit shaky, because it uses an old GameSpy service. That's why I have very high hopes for the upcoming Assault Squad 2, which promises to have full Steam MP integration. The developers have been listening to the community a lot and have published several free updates with lots of new content, so I trust them on this one.

Assault Squad is my favorite Men of War game and maybe my favorite strategy game from WWII. Why? Becouse of great atmosphere on the battlefield, many original elements and ideas (you can control EVERY unit separately), really funny and challenging multiplayer, authenticity of war and more. Yeah, there are bugs. Yeah, maybe the graphics isn't the best. So what? I bought it, I enjoyed it and you should too.

8/10

**4/8/14 Update to Review**

Recently announced, Men of War: Assault Squad, will not be playable in multiplayer after May 31st 2014, the game creator is ending it's steam support for MOWAS, aswell as the earlier versions of the series. Their explination seems to stem from "We're unable to provide support, but, you can purchase Men of War: Assault Squad 2, and it will be fine" , that in itself seems fishy, but overall I leave people's interpretation of that move up to them. The game review still stands, tis a great and fun game, but all in all, the company's descision to end multiplayer essentially kills the game unless you're willing to risk using a 3rd party software for MP. Telling your customers to simply "Purchase the new game" instead of continuing support of your recent products, is an unfortaunte situation for everyone that enjoys MOWAS1 , so buyers beware. If the company comes out with a new game in a year that's based on the Men of War series, you could be looking at this happening again. I personally am retiring from the Men of War series over this move. Very, VERY toxic business move.

A very, very in depth RTS that is more historically accurate and well put together than games of the same Genre (IE Company of autists) , You will not be dissappointed if you're looking for a quality, well made RTS based around WW2 with a few extra easter eggs thrown in. (Christmas mission to defend against the grinch, ect.) Not for those new to RTS's but it does have a tutorial that will show you the ropes. Multiplayer can be a challenge as there are several instances of a little lag, and others not speaking english, other than that, MP offers 1 on 1 up to 8 on 8 matches where you can lay down some serious hurt. Squads can be broken up into 1 man detachments or anything in beetween, different level of infantry can mean the difference beetween conscripts equipped with pea shooters to elite troops with body armor and assault rifles and are fully trained. Vehicles and artillery can range from a simple machine gun or jeep, to a 60 ton late war tank or heavy artillery, how you field your army is up to you , use them wisely!

This is my favorite in the Men of War line. With one BIG reason, skirmish option!!! you can set yourself up on a selection of maps. Victory conditions either Capture the Point till X amount of resources or my favorite annihilation. You can setup massive defences and just maintain a line as the AI tries to drive its armies through to your H.Q. Big fan of Men of War: Assault Squad. 5/5 *****
