Men of War: Red Tide reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
Men of War: Red Tide (popularly known as "Black Jackets")-in my opinion, the apotheosis of the development of "storyline" of the game branch of the franchise "Men of War" (aka "Behind The Enemy") and one of the best games of the Great Patriotic war in general. The Game tells the story of the Black Sea THEATRE and gives an opportunity to participate in the defense of Odessa and Sevastopol, daring attacks in the rear of the enemy, heroic landings and, finally, victory over the enemy in the form of assault Novorossiysk, Nikolaev and Constanta. Advantages of the game: 1. Very well-researched plot-all missions in their own unique and correspond to the historically reliable state of affairs. The Atmosphere of the game at the height. 2. The Developers took into account the error of the original "Men of War", where the Italian Army was a clone of the Wehrmacht-here we have to fight the authentically displayed German, Romanian and Italian parts. 3. Multi-Variant of the passage of all missions related to the Desantim-you can try different tactics. 4. Built-in Game encyclopedia, which gives a good idea of the THEATRE, Marine Corps, armament, tactics and strategy of the parties. 5. Many historical characters, including those whose exploits are already seriously forgotten. 6. Separate Plus developers for displaying in the game Leonid Ilyich Brezhnev in the mission "the Failure of Operation" Neptune "-a tribute to the late leader of the Soviet Union and his participation in the war. 7. The Presence in the arsenal of enemies of a large number of trophy French and Czechoslovak weapons-this is not to meet in every game can. In several missions, the Germans and their allies meet and Soviet trophies. 8. Another separate plus-for the mission "Beat captain Mimbelli"-looking at hundreds of corpses of Soviet, Italian and German soldiers, albeit virtual, you begin to understand how terrible was the Great Patriotic War and what guided the Soviet Leadership when it stood firm in the preservation of peace. 9. Many missions are forced to sweat well and look for non-standard ways to win. However, the game has obvious disadvantages: 1. First of all-"Thank you, Softclub, for such a disgusting Tim-edition". In Steam is the very first version of the game, and both official patches are not installed on it. 2. Very high threshold of entry into the game-no training, the first mission immediately sets a high bar, so that without the experience of games in the previous part there is nothing to do. 3. Just a sea of bugs, some of which have not been fixed. Sometimes The Soviet cruiser can accidentally kick out of 130/180-mm guns on their own marines. Soldiers are confused in fences and narrow yards, getting out of control, and the flamethrower like to hang out under the hail of bullets with lethal outcome for the entire squad. 4. The Need for a strong micromenengiment for soldiers and, especially, equipment. 5. In several missions to win will have to actively use the system "SEYV-relay", and in the pair-troika just critically need to know the plot to have time to properly prepare the defense and provide ways to bypass. In a few more missions can be defeated only by capturing the enemy tank or (in the case of a timer)-the will of the case, backed by frequent saves.
