Men of War Red Tide

  • Excerpt: Set during the turbulent era of World War II, Men of War: Red Tide is the next instalment of this RTS series that focuses on the Russians or the "Black Coats" who helped change the tide of war. Although I never played the original, I know for a fact that it was quite popular among the gaming community, especially for its multiplayer and in this current instalment, it accurately revolves around the Russian with all their weapons and uniforms to boot!

  • Conclusion: Men of War: Red Tide is seriously hardcore on many fronts. First, learning the controls takes time and patience and forces the player to refer to the game manual, instead of teaching the controls and other basics during gameplay. Second, the missions themselves are very difficult to perform. Many times you find yourself having completed one main objective, but facing the next one with far fewer soldiers due to the casualties that you have taken.

  • Excerpt: Not many games satisfy your desire for wanton destruction quite like Men of War. In fact, as you reflect on just how fulfilling you’ve found it systematically reducing some idyllic, beautifully crafted town into a heap of smouldering rubble, you actually feel slightly ashamed.
  • Pros: Great Graphics, Historical realism, Original WW2 Setting
  • Cons: No different to MOW, A few glitches, Occasional Lag

  • Excerpt: Auf in den Kampf, Genossen! Seit kurzem ist das Addon „Red Tide“ zum Echtzeitstrategiespiel „Men Of War“ in der lokalisierten deutschen Version auf dem Markt. Bereits die Vorgänger konnten hinsichtlich Realismus und Atmosphäre alle vergleichbaren Mitbewerber vom Schlachtfeld pusten. Grund genug, das Stand Alone Add-On unter die Lupe zu nehmen.

Men of War: Red Tide – RePlay English Review

ComputerGames.ro
18 April 2010
  • Excerpt: I admit that when I gave Men of War that high score, my opinion on the multiplayer differed somewhat from that of the community, since I considered that strategy was downplayed in favor of reaction time, map knowledge and team spirit. The genius of the game was found in the single-player, so when the stand-alone expansion Red Tide was announced, I was excited, to say the least.
  • Pros: Complex and difficult missions, New units
  • Cons: No skirmish mode, No multiplayer, Weird AI

Men of War: Red Tide – RePlay Review

ComputerGames.ro
16 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Mǎrturisesc cǎ atunci când am notat generos Men of War , opinia mea despre multiplayer nu a fost chiar aceeaşi cu cea a comunităţii, deoarece am considerat că strategia avea de pierdut în multiplayer in favoarea vitezei de reacţie, a cunoaşterii hǎrţilor şi a spiritului de echipǎ. Geniul jocului se regǎsea, dupǎ mine, în calitatea misiunilor single-player, aşa că atunci când a fost anunţat expansion-ul stand alone Red Tide, nu mi-am putut reprima un strop de emoţie.
  • Pros: Misiuni single-player complexe şi dificile, Unitǎţile noi
  • Cons: Nu existǎ skirmish, Nu existǎ multiplayer, AI-ul se comportă ciudat

  • Conclusion: Der Fall von Men of War: Red Tide ist eigentlich ziemlich klar. Es ist ein Spiel, dessen Konzept mit netten Ideen wie der Direktsteuerung und dem Micromanagement durchaus zu gefallen weiß, das aber letztendlich in der Umsetzung an zu vielen Stellen scheitert. Zu schwierig und unzugänglich, zu viele KI-Aussetzer bei der Wegfindung und Deckungssuche sowie eine fummelige Steuerung, die dem Micromanagement das Genick bricht.
  • Pros: Neue Blickwinkel auf ein ausgelutschtes Setting, Abwechslungsreiche Missionen, Micromangement in der Theorie ganz gut..., Zahlreiche verschiedene Einheiten, Nette Physik-Engine, Taktisch anspruchsvoll
  • Cons: Technisch durchwachsen, Kein Tutorial, ... die Umsetzung ist allerdings dürftig, Unnötige KI-Aussetzer, Teilweise fummelige Steuerung, Generell viel zu schwer
