Men of War

07 May

Haven’t posted anything for a long time.

I am a big fan of the Men of War series of computer games (Also Soldiers and Faces of War which were earlier games from the same Russian developers).

The latest version is Men of War: Assault Squad 2 which is available on Steam.

Anyway having played the games alot, I decided to use the built in map and mission editor to create a scenario based on the Bocage fighting encountered by US troops as they pushed inland from the Normandy beaches. It’s going well and I have designed it so that a player will encounter the same problems that the Americans found in WWII. These include well thought out German defences that took advantage of the landscape and the fact that US tanks were hindered by the French style hedgerows that were more like stone and earth walls with trees and bushes growing on top.
