Men of War screens

It looks good. Chances of it being any good? Fingers crossed as theres been very few games of this style of RTS out in ages.













Check out some gameplay details at the following link. You can actually aim at specific parts of vehicles.

It only looks like it. The game seems to be much deeper. As fun as CoH was it really had some faults that I think alot of people ignored. It was NOT the best RTS game made in years like alot of people say. I thought C&C3 was far superior.

Looks really pretty, but the UI scares me. Too much on screen. I want to play an RTS since I haven't played any in a long time. I want to try out World In Conflict.

C&C3 is a "traditional" RTS (aka utter crap). CoH, thankfully, is nothing like it.

Anyway, I believe the developer if this game kind of pioneered this sub-genre. This could be great or merely decent.

To make CoH great you need to be able to zoom the camera out further at will and also raise that annoying unit production amount. It felt too constrained to me.
