Men of War: Vietnam Game Editor Released

By Andrew Smee on October 28th, 2011.

Be advised, we have found Buddha and are seeking enlightenment, over

Those men, they do like a good war. But what, if anything, is armed conflict good for? It’s good for modding tool updates, that’s what. 1C Company have just released an update to Men of War: Vietnam, focusing on balance issues and ever-popular mod support. A tough game on release, even the mighty brains of Jim and Tim had trouble with the difficulty of the base game, as Jim mentions in his review of the first level. It’s good to see that problem addressed. It’s better to see the comprehensive new mod tools, allowing creation of custom scenarios and entirely new maps. Mod tools, the order of the day.

The new patch will automatically update for Steam users, and is also available to download here.

The First Level Of Men Of War: Vietnam

By Jim Rossignol on September 8th, 2011.

No, sir. No.
I’d planned to have a review of Men Of War: Vietnam up for its release tomorrow, but I won’t be able to. The reason is it has taken the majority of my time for this review getting past the first level. I know, I know, games journalists are terrible at games, but I’ve long taken sad pride in being a bit more hardcore in my tastes and abilities than my peers, and I absolutely love the Men of War games. This time, however, I am slamming my tiny fists down on the table in indignation. I won’t admit defeat, of course, but there it is: this one is too hard, and I am cross. I’ve been chatting to Tim Stone (who is also playing the game for another publication) and he’s long past that first level, leaving me in his dust. Nevertheless he too admits that the difficulty of the full game is “mad”, which does not bode well for my overall consternation. And I envy the brain that could get through this baffling exercise in frustration. Let me explain a bit more about it, below.

Men Of War: Vietnam Is Close Now

By Jim Rossignol on August 22nd, 2011.

I AM PLAYING WITH MY TANK.
The project lead on Men Of War: Vietnam, Nikita Altman, has a fascinating taste in shirts, as you can see from the developer diary I’ve posted below. In this dubbed interview, he explains why his team were interested in the setting, and how historically accurate its portrayal of the conflict might be. There’s a bunch of game footage to illustrate all this. Even more interesting is that we have review code, which I will soon be playing. You can read my early impressions of the game here. Will it live up to the legend? I’ll soon find out. And then tell you, I suppose. Mm.

Hands On With Men Of War: Vietnam

By Jim Rossignol on July 28th, 2011.

The men are in Vietnam for their latest war.
This week I’ve been submerged in the murky jungle waters of forthcoming real-time tiny-men commander, Men Of War: Vietnam. 1c sent over four levels from the full game, and I’ve played through them. I’ve given a little overview of each of these level below, and have discovered that my description represents a sort of plan of the increasing degrees of excitement that I am experiencing. In fact, I’ve drawn a graph.

Men Of War: Sequels And Souvenirs

By Tim Stone on July 7th, 2011.

My aim? In the reach zone. My fingers? Poised over the old word-piano ready to impart the following vague but important snippet of Men of War news. In addition to toiling away on MoW: Vietnam, MoW: Condemned Heroes (a standalone title based on the activities of a Soviet Penal battalion), and more DLC for Assault Squad, 1C are currently planning Men of War II. It’s very early days yet, but last week in Prague, series producer Sergey Gerasev dropped some interesting hints as to possible directions. Read the rest of this entry »

Jungle Beats – Men Of War: Vietnam

By Jim Rossignol on October 19th, 2010.


Vietmen Of War? It’s a missed opportunity, certainly. But nevermind, because there are helicopters, F4s, flamethrowers, tanks, and TINY HEROES doing their heroism! With those big jungles and smoky skies Men Of War: Vietnam certainly looks the part, and it’s threatening to be one of those games that stops me from being a useful human being, especially since it has 4-player co-op. I’d love to see this game get properly opened up to modding, because the failure of that Stalker mod is a shame, plus it’d be awesome to see some other stuff brought in. The same engine used to make a sci-fi game could really be something. Anyway, to the trailer! Below!

Surf this, Charlie – Men of War: Vietnam

By Alec Meer on June 4th, 2010.

Turns out there’s not one, not two, not two, not two, but two new Men of War games due later this year. Jim forcibly craned your head towards MoW: Assault Squad last week, but now there’s Men of War: Vietnam too. Which I a) am quite excited about, as ‘Nam is not a territory RTS has often trod in and b) played for a little while a couple of weeks ago.
