Game Description:
         Men of War is another one of those titles that I like to call a 'silent stunner'. It didn't make many waves, and probably went relatively unnoticed by more mainstream audiences (strategy games not part of blockbuster series generally do). It's realistic approach to combat, its focus on action orientated game play (as opposed to the tried and tired base building of old) made it shine as bright as any AAA release. Without a doubt, it was one of the best World War II strategy title since Company of Heroes, and now it's about to get a whole lot better. 
         Assault Squad is primarily a real-time tactics game, but veers more toward strategy than its predecessors due to the absence of any "fixed force" (i.e. no reinforcements) scenarios. It is driven by an intricate simulation that tracks ammunition and fuel, inventories for each and every unit, cover and line of sight, tank combat with penetration and deflection of shells, field of view, and much more beside.While Assault Squad is geared toward multiplayer, the new co-op Skirmish mode can be played offline without a partner.
          Like earlier games in the series, Assault Squad includes a "direct control" feature that allows the player to take control of any unit on the field. This allows fine control during firefights, such as priming grenades before throwing and aiming for specific parts on a tank.The multiplayer uses the Gamespy client and has a built in Elo rating system. Multiplayer matches can take place on dozens of maps and between the games five factions. New multiplayer maps are being released as DLC.
