Summary: This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I recall firstly playing this game in 2004. It was summer and I had a lot of time and I can say I spent it well playing all missions of this diamond. Yeah it is hard and you have to think a lot in every mission or you WILL get owned by the AI. Most people cannot even get past the 1st Russian mission. AT guns kill them too fast.
Summary: My T-34, upon first time playing, on the first mission, lasted a grand total of 4 minutes before being blown to hell by German anti-tank grenades and possibly rocket launchers. So of course it goes without saying it gets my patented "Men of War" series seal of approval. This game was made long before Assault Squad began to really stretch the games engine, so of course it actually runs very well in comparison to the later games in the series.
Summary: Soldiers: Heroes of World II is a mixture between RPG, RTS and FPS. How is that possible? Well, it has inventory management, some progression (You might occasionally keep troops and items after having completed a mission), there's the ordering your units about from a bird's-eye view and then there's directly controlling one of your units by using the keyboard to move and the mouse to fire.The latter isn't absolutely necessary to do but it can make firefights a lot easier...
Summary: This is an excellent game that is very... very difficult and should be played with others in cooperative mode for higher rate of success. You will need to bring the best out in you and do thorough planning, learn how to use which guns, where and when. DON'T try to rush head on or you will be dominated and crushed, the AI in this game can and will counter attack you as well...
Summary: This game and the Men of War series is in my opinion the best RTS WWII games. The thing that lets this game stand out is it's difficulty. I couldn't even make through the first levels in the easy difficulty at first. Afterwards I started to understand the tactics and finished the game. I must say, It was worth it.
Excerpt: "'Soldiers: Heroes of World War 2' is a game played from a birds-eye-view position. However, unlike most games set out this way, the graphics offer a much greater level of detail. The tanks and infantry you get to control move around realisticly... they sometimes even drop their weapons accidentally in combat! The campaign side to this game offers a range of exciting missions which take you through a number of different terrains. Though the action ...
Pros: Good graphics and general idea sounds great .
Cons: In reality the game is slow paced and lacks a decent multiplayer option .
Excerpt: "Straight away you are given a good impresion of the game with the manual - clear, concise and readable - all actions are controlled by either the mouse or hotkeys - which are simple and straight-forward. You will need to know these when the preferable hits the fans in some levels. It gets manic... The tutorial is good and gives you basic gameplay skills - I would recommend doing the vehicle tutorial as this can be somewhat tricky to figure out ...
Pros: GAMEPLAY - simple but effective
Cons: can take time to master the strategies needed
Excerpt: "I have been playing combat and stratergy games for several years, and i have to say that this is the best one so far. To start the graphics are super and the detail of not just the vehicles and troops but the whole surroundings is great, there are plenty of campaigns to play, each with 6or7 parts to each one, plus there are a number of stand alone combat situations to play out. Each campaign has a story line, and and tasks have to be completed ...
Pros: keeps you playing for hours
Cons: keeps you playing for hours and hours and hours
Conclusion: This is like no other game before it, its got good graphics and some very challenging missions to contend with. You have to use your brain a bit to figure out how too win. Yes its a hard game to beat but its a really good tactical game in my opinion.
Summary: J'adore ce jeu, je suis un grand fan de la série et du mangas, pour sa date de sortie ce jeu et bien. Mais après si on se sens mieux avec les nouveau jeux avec de super graphisme... On va pas trop aimer, mais sinon MOI J'ADORE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
