Men of War takes place in Europe and North Africa during the height of World War II. The story takes place over three different campaigns and players take on the role of Soviet, Allied and German soldiers. Each campaign has its own scenario and structured timeline, which brings different elements of the war to life.

The game features hundreds of accurately modelled historical tanks and vehicles — including new designs of tanks, APCs and heavy guns — all of which are ready for your command. Dynamic in-game cutscenes enhance the single-player by telling the plot, without pulling the player out of the game experience. What's more, the sounds of war have been given a new lease of life, with more than 1,000 sounds effects of weapons and combat gear; all recorded under real operating conditions.

The single-player campaign also features a customisable user-interface, so players can have the command controls laid out in their own style. One of the biggest changes for Men of War is the inclusion of a comprehensive multiplayer, featuring new maps and modes, including Capture the Flag, High-Value Cargo and more. Also, there's a refined rating system to ensure a fair fight in online multiplayer battles.

Overview:

The Axis Foreign Army can deploy advanced units faster than the other factions. However, these units are initially badly trained or equipped with obsolete technology. Most of the units has 2 upgrades that are automatically unlocked when the proper amount of tech points is collected. For example, the PaK 36 will be upgraded to PaK 38 and eventually to PaK36 with a Stielgranate 41. Unlike the other factions, the Axis Foreign Army consumes tech point when ordering an upgraded version of the reinforcements. It is possible to reduce and eventually stop the tech points consumption with upgrades in the “Manage supplies” section of the reinforcement menu. Here it is also possible to exchange other tech points for a particular type of tech point (for example you can get 4 infantry tech points at the cost of 2 artillery and 2 vehicle tech points).

It is mind boggling to me how this game is recieving no attention in North America! The only retailers I have seen with it are EB games and Amazon.com. This game has so much more depth than Company of Heros and other such rts games. In fact, this game beats COH in every department save voice acting.

I have to agree with this. CoH is great, but its not the simulation that MoW is. The whole series of of War games goes pretty much un-noticed over here in the UK too. Right back down to soldiers: heroes of WW2, Faces of War and now Men of War. This games simply rock on a level most war games will never even achieve.

How can a game of such technical and game play achievement go so un-notices, its simply criminal.

Wonderful game. Beautiful physics and graphics with low spec requirements. Voice acting is *SUPERB [insert sarcasm] but the cover system and missions are hard and fun.

Incredible game that deserves WAY more attention in the states than it's getting right now. It's like Company of Heroes for people who like more realistic simulators. Seriously people, if you haven't tried it, try the MP beta at Fileplanet. Me and my friends have been playing non stop and will buy it as soon as it's released in America.
