There are two possible perspectives to take on gameplay. If you’re a die hard mariner who has a taste for history and must have the greatest accuracy of ship movement, you will swab the decks with joy over Man of War II: Chains of Command
. You may play the role of a captain, commander, or even an admiral, giving voice commands to your crew in the midst of battle.
Dependent upon your rank in the game, there are two modes to select from. A scrolling map view, which you use to set up your attack formation and strategy, and what you may want to call a “double first-person perspective” (looking through the eyes of a character who is looking off the bow of a ship). The principal of MoW2 is simple; you click on icons on the HUD which in turn causes your character to yell out commands to his or her crew as you attempt to complete a pre-planned mission.
