An intricately detailed RTS, Men of War: Assault Squad 2 is packed with features and refuses to tell you how to use them.

It's not that more Men Of War is unwelcome, or even that Assault Squad 2 isn't an essential addition to my collection of real-time tiny men games (it is), it's just that I'd like to see something else done with the template. World War II is a fine source material, but the fabulous battlefield simulation produced by this engine could do so much more.

Not without flaws then, but it's a game still capable of providing you with some epic cinematic showdowns, particularly in those new 8v8 multiplayer matches. If you like your war games expansive and unforgiving, and don't mind overcoming some lingering issues with awkward presentation and excessive micromanagement, Men of War: Assault Squad 2 provides an exciting and singular war gaming experience.

There's a lot to this game and I cannot recommend it to anyone new to the genre as tutorial does almost nothing to help you learn the game. For hardcore RTS fans out there, I suspect that this game will be right up your ally. It's a fun game and there is a lot of content to it, and it offers some features unusual to the genre, but if you played the original there may not be much for you here. The game supports Steam Workshop, though, and the developer, Digitalmindsoft has guaranteed that it will release free game updates including new features, so hopefully this resolves that critical problem over time.
