The title may be reminiscent of numerous other World War 2 strategy games, but after playing Men of War, you wont confuse it with any of them. For starters, the presentation is comically poor. The cut scenes are fuzzy, pre-rendered affairs and the...

Cast your mind back a few years and you may well recall a plucky little WWII strategy game going by the name of Soldiers: Heroes of World War II. It was great. Despite this, it didn’t sell as many copies as it should have, but it did well enough...

Men of War is a bit like The World at War television series, but without the superb narration of Laurence Olivier. The developers have attempted to provide gamers with a range of conflict situations. That means you get three campaigns from the...

Andra världskriget - historiens värsta krig och kanske den mest uttjatade inspirationskällan för digital underhållning. Strategispelen är inga undantag och denna gång är det Best Ways Men of War som fyller på...

International Review By Gamer.no on 80

Company of Heroes må stable sandsekkene sine så høyt de bare kan, for Men of War er absolutt en verdig utfordrer. Med sitt sterke taktisk orienterte gameplay, varierte kampanje og flotte fysikkmotor er det først og fremst i striden...
