Man of War 2

Man Of War II 2 Chains of Command PC CD ocean boat ship high seas combat game! 



Strategy First, Inc. 



Real-time naval combat comes to your computer screen in Man of War II: Chains of Command, the sequel to the original Man of War by Strategy First. The game recreates battles from the Age of Sail, a 50-year period of history that ended with the death of Horatio Nelson at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. There are 23 historically accurate pre-built scenarios included, all played in single-player mode.

The 23 historical scenarios span four wars during the period. From 1756-1763, four battles from The Seven Years' War, the struggle between Austria and Prussia, are recreated: Minorca, Cap Francois, Lagos and Pondicherry. The American War of Independence (Revolutionary War), fought from 1776-1783, features a half-dozen battles including Ushant, Dogger Bank, Chesapeake, Sadras, Les Saintes and Cuddalore.

The end of the 18th century saw the French Revolutionary War (1792-1799) of which eight battles are represented in Man of War II. Included is The Glorious First of June (1794), Gulf of Genoa, Belle Isle, Ile de Groix, Cape St. Vincent, Camperdown, Donegal and the 2nd Battle of Algeciras. The final five scenarios are from the Napoleonic Wars (1799-1814) and feature Finisterre, Trafalgar, Cape Ortegal, San Domingo and Lissa.

During gameplay, you'll select which historical ship to command for each scenario (from any ship on the map) and carry out orders and employ strategy and tactics commensurate with the rank of the character you choose. As a Captain, you'll say "Aye Sir" to Division Commander and Admiral wishes. Should you choose to play as Division Commander, the Fleet Flag Officer will be expecting his orders to be carried out and as Admiral, you'll be responsible for not only your own division but those that serve under you as well.

At each level of command, navigation, ship control, prioritization of crew activities and sail configuration fall under your purview. Should your ship sink, your crew surrender or you strike your colors, an option is available to watch the rest of the battle from a first-person viewpoint.

Customizable options within battle conditions include cannon fire rates, ship handling, damage, ship components and deployment of weapons, ship types, shot (ammunition) used and formations. Unique orders at all three levels of command are offered and character creation is available should you opt against using a historical figure. A functional custom scenario builder is provided which allows you to design or recreate any battle of the era you see fit.

Man of War II: Chains of Command is seen from both first- and third-person perspectives and can be played from both 2D and 3D viewpoints. Multi-player action is available on both LAN and the Internet for up to 32 players, each commanding a specific ship in simultaneous real-time action.

The order is given, now prepare for battle!

For Windows (32-bit Systems) [*Please review compatibility/platform sections in 'What You Get']


This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.


All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.


Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.


Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.


Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.


  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.

Additionally, international orders typically have to go through governmental customs, which can delay the arrival process.
