Men of War II is the second instalment of the series of World War II RTS games, launched in 2007. It was developed by Best Way studio (whose portfolio includes genre-related Soldiers: Heroes of World War II and expansions to the first part of the series) and published by 1C Entertainment, the company responsible for the brand.

Plot

Men of War II is set during World War II. Game offers two story campaigns. In the first of them we take command over Allies and fight on the western front, while the second allows us to take command over the Red Army and challenge the Third Reich on the eastern front.

Mechanics

In Men of War II we observe an action from a top-down view. We give orders to infantry and vehicles as well as air forces. In total, 45 battalions and over 300 different machines are implemented in the game. Each unit has a unique specialisation and an individual set of strengths and weaknesses, which if skilfully used is the key to success.

Skirmishes in which we participate take place in diverse sceneries. Battlefields range from snowy Russian hills to European villages and ruined cities. In order to be successful, each battle must be treated individually, developing a separate tactic for its needs. We should take into account not only the number and capabilities of our subordinates, but also the terrain and buildings (as well as the bridges, rivers or even forests, which allow us to prepare ambushes). It is worth remembering that every building here can be razed to the ground. It is true that in this way we are able to deprive the enemy of cover, but our subordinates can also be buried under a pile of rubble at any time.

In comparison to the first part of the series, this game stands out due to a much more advanced AI. Moreover, the so-called Front Line was implemented in the game, which divides the battlefield into two parts. The course of the line is determined by the actions of infantry and is important because some operations can only be performed on your side. In addition, thanks to Direct Vision, the game allows us to take direct control over a selected unit and watch the action in TPP or FPP. As a soldier we can carry out firefights or even ride a tank on the battlefield, controlling it ourselves.

Game modes

Apart from two single player campaigns, Men of War II offers fast-paced skirmishes and an extended multiplayer mode, with a co-op module and competitive gameplay variants. Game also includes a variety of modding tools and a level editor.

Technical aspects

Men of War II features high quality graphics. Especially impressive are the spectacular explosions and realistic destruction of the environment. In addition, all units were designed with attention to detail. The audio layer presents an equally high level.v
