Men of War Demo

A playable demo for Men of War is now available, offering a sample of the upcoming installment in Best Way's World War II strategy series that began with Soldiers: Heroes of World War II and continued with Faces of War. Here's word on the contents of the demo: "The entire opening stage of the Russian campaign, which sees a small unit from the Red Army taking on the might of the Germans. This initial mission helps players to get to grips with the controls before culminating in a tightly fought battle between a Russian tank and a convoy of German vehicles. There's also an opportunity to try out Men of War's 'direct control' feature during the demo. This enables you to manoeuvre units using the directional keys, rather than pointing and clicking. You can get behind the controls of a tank to smash through obstacles, crush soldiers under your tracks and fire armour-piercing shells at enemy placements." The demo debuted on IncGamers, and the 249 MB download is now mirrored on AtomicGamer, ComputerGames.ro, Gamer's Hell, Games On Net, and Strategy Informer.

I didn't like it much. I was expecting C&C and WiC type of games.

This game is really good. Its not perfect but wow, so much fun. Multiplayer could be better if it had dedicated servers instead of the peer to peer system. There's so much to do and see in this game.

LittleMe, hit the END button to take direct control. Then your mouse has the aiming cursor (the turret follows it) and the ARROW keys move the tank. It's a little back asswards compared to Western games but as long as it's configurable in the retail version it works.

These guys did a great job with that in their first games but it is kind of spotty in this one. I've noticed some glitches with both movement orders and other orders in the interface. Trying to change from one unit to another via mouse is a severe pain in the ass. Sometimes taking as many as three clicks. Unless I'm just doing something wrong the interface is kind of whacked.

Besides that it's makes me want to reinstall Soldiers.

AMAZING. This game is sooo good. Wow I can't wait for the full game.

The voice acting is bad but I can accept that. The tank will stop taking move orders sometimes but I think that is because my commander died. Sometimes the light armoured vehicle and the motorcycle will insist on facing the oppsite direction I want. Also I can't move the tank turret manually.

The game needs some patching but I'm already in love. IMO way better than CoH.

The ongoing MP beta is really fun as well. With this game, Dawn of War 2 and Empire: Total War, the 1st Quarter of 2009 looks to be quite strong for the strategy genre.

Sweeeeeeet. I've been playing the beta and it's pretty awesome. Almost a guaranteed buy for me.

If there were any women on the fence about WWII games, this game's title will surely pull 'em over.
