Great Games and Accessories for the PC from Gamesbuyer.
See World War Two from three different sides -Russian, Allied and German –as you command entire armies and plot your battle strategies across epic maps based on real-life locations.
Men of War takes place across the globe during the height of World War II and features three different campaigns, each with their own unique units, vehicles and missions. From the Russian missions starring two student comrades fresh to the horrors of war, players are soon catapulted into massive battles with dozens of units under their command.
In addition to the in-depth single player experience, Men of War also unleashes a range of multiplayer maps based on the main missions along with action-packed 'capture the flag' and 'high-value cargo' modes.

It is comparable to Soldiers Heroes of WW2 and whilst its not quite as polished as Company of heroes, it also doesnt have that arcade/console-like feel to it either. There are occasional moments when you get the feeling there is a rigid scripting engine in the background, but thats just a minor drawback. The beauty of this game is in its depth and attention to detail. The game itself allows you to approach your objective with maximum amount of micro management if you want to, i spend hours kitting my troops out with the most awesome german weaponry on almost every mission. In some ways it has that RPG feel to it because it allows you a lot of inventory for each unit. My riflemen almost always end up being upgraded to snipers, MP44 assault troops or MG42 gunners. AI is ok in battles, you have control over your troops to inhibit them from opening fire, returning fire, fire at will.. but i think most folks who really get on with this game will manage at detail level.
Unlike COH, Some of the missions are absolutely brilliant and will entertain you for a long time, many will take you many attempts to figure out how to accomplish the objective. Major assault missions can be really really full on with shells exploding and tracer flying all over the battlefield with a good level of NPC activity to make it feel on a large scale. Much larger than any other RTS ive played. Explosions and other ordanance seems to have good physics with good visuals and sound effects.
People only used to console type games, i think you might not like it, but for pc gamers who appreciate the attention to detail, depth and better graphics.... if you like WW2 RTS, then its an absolute must purchase.Read more ›
Graphically although the game doesn't seem much improved over the previous titles it's still among the finest looking RTSs out there with a FULLY destructible environment. Every building can be smashed, every tree uprooted and proper 3D craters appear where shells land that can provide cover for your infantry. The AI is also extremely good at making use of cover objects and pathfinding across a battlefield that quickly becomes littered with burning hulks and rubble is usually very good. Only occasionally do your soldiers get confused and run out in front of the enemy's guns although when it does happen it's very frustrating.
The only downside I have is that sometimes the micro-management of soldiers can get annoying.Read more ›
This game is the follow on to Heroes of ww2 and faces of war, and the whole thing now exudes polish, and feels much slicker than before. The missions are varied and often involve epic battles that really feel as if stuff is going on. The infantry units actually move with purpose towards you using cover, and running away if confronted with impossible odds. There is no jerkovision that was sometimes very evident in Faces of War, and you can zoom out a bit more giving a better veiew of the battle field.
enmies hide and take out your tanks with grenades, and you can't rush mob handed at the enemy and expect anything less than a maasacre. The command sytem has been refined and it is easier to reassign squads than before (that used to be a pain)
I love it, it is better than the original game, and way better than faces of war, and way better than Company of Heroes, although Tales of Valor may change that. The graphics are great, and everything is destructible. The sound when turned up is like a war going on in your living room.
If you like rts's you must buy this - it requires your attention
In short an essential buy and one that sits proudly alongside the equally brilliant Company of Heroes series.
