Excerpt: The Men of War series has been a boon for fans of tactical combat, with missions that value strategy over brute force. In fact, brute force rarely ever works, so you need to think ahead if you want your squads to survive.
Excerpt: , to review. It's very difficult for me (in other words, I'm terrible), but I've also been having a lot of fun. I was impressed with the game when I first previewed it over a year ago at 1C Company's Another Night in Moscow event, so I was pretty excited to finally get some time to play it.
Excerpt: Prior to playing Men at War: Vietnam we had an idea in our mind’s eye of what we would have liked it to be. We had visions of a game with Company of Heroes ‘ style mixed with Dawn of War’s real time tactical gameplay.
Conclusion: So, in terms of boiling down this review to a verdict on whether Men of War is good or not, I think I’ll go with the trusty “Yes, but” conclusion. It is good, but the Vietnam setting doesn’t fit the template as well as World War II, and I would strongly advice newcomers to play the original Men of...
Brutally tough and unforgiving, Men of War: Vietnam is a serious test of your patience and your real-time strategy skills.

Summary: How much you enjoy Men of War: Vietnam depends on your patience for constant saving and reloading. Just like in the earlier releases in this 1C Company series of real-time squad combat games, the difficulty has been cranked through the roof.
Pros: Intricate missions with multiple objectives on huge maps, Lengthy solo campaign, Cooperative play adds replay value
Cons: Brutal difficulty demands tiptoeing forward and saving often, Missions are absurdly tilted in favor of the opposition, A few AI issues, Lacks a much-needed tutorial, Connection problems hamper co-op play
Summary: The difficulty is brutal, the graphics look like they're from 2006 and the AI from the original Command & Conquer were more advanced than they felt here. Men of War has done a lot of things right but the Vietnam edition feels like a poorly constructed attempt of an expansion pack.

Right from the off the uninitiated will be tearing clumps of man-fur straight from their skull as this game sets out to kick you in...

Conclusion: La saga di Men of War si sposta nel Sud est asiatico. Luci e ombre, e non solo quelle provocate dai raggi di sole che riescono a fatica a oltrepassare il lussureggiante tetto di fogliame della foresta pluviale vietnamita, caratterizzano questo nuovo capitolo della saga.
