Men of War is a strategy game that, like so many other similar games, takes place during the World War II. There are several campaigns available to play for different factions. Each campaign takes place of course during World War II. A difference between Men of War and other strategy game is the possibility to control your units using keyboard (more than mouse even). So instead of clicking at some random point on the map, the player can use directional key from his keyboard to move his units. It may be a bit tricky to learn how to use these controls, but after you manage to learn them, Men of War is going to open some new strategy options for you.
New players can be confused by the clumsy interface and abstract symbols that represents different commands. To make things even worse, the h
ints that are given during the first missions are not in concordance with player actions. Because of that, the learning process becomes even harder. All you can do as a new player is to memorize those tips hopping that you can use them later.
The control system has its bugs as well. Pointing and clicking may work quite well if you want to move some soldiers from one point to another. However, if you intend to do the same operation with a tank, things are totally different and way more complicated. A good thing is that you can arrange your units before sending them to a specific location. However, most of the fights will seem a bit robotic and won't offer the player the necessary entertainment. The only good thing here is that you can win a fight using different strategies. For example you can choose to flank your enemy from the right side and in the next try you can choose a more frontal attack. This feature gives some replay ability for this game but don't expect too much from it.
Graphically, the game is not something extraordinary. Even with every setting on high, a decent system can still provide around 60 fps. Due the graphical simplicity, Men of War allows a map to cover great tracts of land. Maybe the worst part from Men of War is the sound. The effects sound itself is not bad but the acting is extremely bad.
