As you all know, I love MOW: Assault Squad. Thrilled to read about a sequel that will once again feature single-player skirmish style maps!!!
What did you think of the others in the series? I have pretty much all of them, but barely touched. IIRC, one of them didn't run as smoothly on my desktop PC as I would've liked, for some reason. Had some fps drops in places.
I realize assault squad was more of a long-ish skirmish type map whereas the others had a string of preset missions lined up?
I liked the others, as well. However, the pre-set campaign missions were just too hard and without cheating, there was no way to advance until you succeeded in each mission. Eventually, I'd get stuck and just stop playing.
Assault squad is just like a giant sandbox with all these cool toys at your fingertips, and for me, it really never gets old. Now, you still have to "beat" maps to move onto the next one in the sequence, but the missions are not that hard because you actually have access to the resources you need to win and you're not pitted against overwhelming odds like you are in the campaign missions of the other titles. So, you typically are able to advance reasonably. Additionally, because each map is so big and you get so much gear to play with, the missions stay fresh anyway, so replaying them never gets old. Finally, there are 5 different nationalities to play with, and each one has their own unique army and maps.
