IGN: Men of War Review

Men of War is not for everyone. It's not even for every fan of real-time strategy. The high level of challenge and the more realistic handling of combat goes against many of the current conventions of the real-time strategy genre. Toss in some unreliable pathfinding and a surplus of micromanagement tasks, and even the hardcore crowd might balk at picking this one up. But there is a segment of the gaming public out there who is looking for exactly this kind of experience (well, maybe without the awful pathfinding) and for them, Men of War will be a revelation. It's like watching all your favorite war movies play out in front of your eyes. Is it tedious and hard as hell? You bet it is, but it offers a view of combat that's every bit as thrilling as the more accessible strategy games that dominate the sales charts.
