Men of War

A real-time tactics game set in the World War II era, developed by Best Way and DigitalMindSoft and published by 1C Company. It features a highly simulated world, for example:

  • Each unit has its own inventory.
  • Modular damage system for vehicles instead of a health bar.
  • Line of sight is calculated for units.
  • Buildings with interiors.
  • Almost everything can be destroyed.

Singleplayer features 3 campaigns (USA, Soviet Union and Germany) and focuses on less-known battles of World War II in North Africa and the Eastern Front. Multiplayer features 5 factions; USA, Soviet Union, Germany, Commonwealth and Japan (added after release). Men of War and other games in the series also feature a map/mission editor and mod support.

Men of War: Red Tide

Features a Soviet campaign focusing on Soviet Naval Infantry of the Black Sea Fleet and the battles of Odessa and Sevastopol. It has the most missions in the series. New units and factions (Italy and Romania) are added, although they are only present as enemies and unplayable in single and multiplayer.

Men of War: Assault Squad

A more multiplayer focused game. It features better graphics and new units. A design goal was to increase the effectiveness and importance of infantry. 15 new single player skirmish missions are added although they are less story based than previous games, instead focusing on goals such as capturing points and eliminating all enemy units.

Men of War: Vietnam

The only game so far not set during WW2, instead focusing on the Vietnam War. There are 2 campaigns, one following the North Vietnamese and the Soviet Union, and one following the USA. Multiplayer only features playing missions cooperatively.
