And don't forget co-op (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2008/02/29/interview-men-of-war/), this game will support it

RPS - Will co-op play be returning? And do you consider it more or less important than competitive multiplayer?

CK - I’m holding my protective hand above this feature - Men of War will have a co-op game mode, and the most interesting one of the series for sure. Whether I consider it as more important than competitive multiplayer is really a hard question… I think both game modes are very unique in their nature, and it strongly depends on the player himself. In my personal opinion co-op is superior to any competitive multiplayer if you play together with a couple of friends, since weak and strong players can help out each other and it’s fun for both no matter how good you are. It’s simply playing together as a team, almost a social variant of multiplayer gaming, while competitive multiplayer is definitely more challenging if played via Internet with lots of different opponents.

It's a sequel to this game - http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-7447269550931227969&hl=en

And this game was the sequel to Soldiers Heroes of World War II. This series is in a different league compared to CoH, which is just a RTS. Men of War is a tactical war game, no bases or health bars on vehicles, only tactical gameplay. Soldiers and Faces of War two of my favorites.
