Default Men of War: Red Tide

This is a a great RTS ww2 game from a Russian Developer (i believe) 1C Company that i bought off steam a few weeks back. ($24.95)

Similar to Company of Heroes or Order of War, you command Russian Marines in ww2. It has good presentation and good graphics, with a nice smooth zoom function and nice explosions. You can manage individual soldiers inventory, so you can load up a brave soul with molotovs and a sub machine gun for some close in tank destruction.

You men can also appropriate enemy equipment such as em-placed MGs, artillery and armor, and you can tow artillery pieces around the field (a must to succeed in one mission, though once i towed past the enemy, they destroyed the armored car and captured the gun, used it against me and i lost! ) and rain down fire on enemy tanks and positions.

I've liked these types of games since my Amiga days and this is one that i've found really enjoyable and with a different flavour than most. It is a difficult game that tests your tactical thinking and how you marshal your resources, so be warned.
