Not what i Expected, But i Loved it! :)
Well, for me the game is a bit obvious (I figuerd out the ending in the beginning..) and an alternative ending would be a plus to the game.
But the "Ride" is more important than the end and that's why I played it until the end and enjoyed it!
The Graphics aren't really great but they dont have to be better than they are since that's really not an important factor to this game.
However I loved it and would like to se a longer sequel or a similar game. Great Job!
Men of War: Assault Squad is a great add-on to the Men of War/Faces of War series. The multiplayer is greatly improved, as well as the addition of other things that contribute to it. One of the things that really irked me in the original Men of War was how the weapon ranges just blatantly sucked.
You had to be point-blank range with a 155mm Howitzer to actually hit your target and anything that should have been in the gun's normal range, wasn't accessible. Assault Squad totally improved on it.
Another thing about this is just the throw-in of skirmish mode. It's just for fun and to see how well you can do against a horde of AI-controlled troops. But alas, there were only a handful (4-6) of missions for each skirmish campaign, which drew away from the campaign feel of the game.
The graphics are dramatically improved, and might I add, the models as well. The helmets now have chinstraps, the rifles have realistic finishes, and that one crowbar looks like a crowbar instead of a badly designed toothpick.
