Whether it’s a campaign in Men Of Battles, a quick squirmish in Company Of Men In Conflict, or some multiplayer co-op at lunchtime in Total Men: War Of Men At War, I have to get my fix.

You’ve got the first three months of the 1914 Call To Arms main campaign, and a full “mini-campaign” set in 1918 Kaiserschlacht. There’s no multiplayer here, and you can’t save or purchase units, but you can at least play against the AI as either side. Fancy winning the war for the Germans – it’s all yours.

You can get the demo at GamersHell, or pick it up from Battlefront.com.

And because I love you, have a trailer:
