    Total Annihilation and Command & Conquer perfected many RTS game mechanics and Machines at War 3 closely retreads their footsteps. If you can overlook the borrowing of ideas from these past classics there is much to enjoy, and some new experiences to be found.

    It may not be for everyone, but Machines at War 3 is easily one of the smoothest playing RTS experiences that can be had on the iPhone.

    Touch screen controls force Machine at War 3 to sacrifice some depth, but it largely makes up for it with a robust selection of gameplay modes and units.

    If you’re hungry to play a real-time strategy game on your iPad, one not marred by free-to-play restrictions and the like, Machines at War 3 does an adequate job of translating that experience to a touchpad-based device and of providing a complex game for strategists to sink their teeth into. This complexity, however, comes with a lack of depth and a steep learning curve, both of which detract from what is otherwise a strong iOS RTS experience.

    There's a decent game here, but Machines at War 3 is far from original, and a little too rough around the edges to wholeheartedly recommend.

I've really enjoyed my time playing this game and shall continue to do so. This may be part to do with my passion of military based strategies, giving me eight out of ten easier more personal experience but you wouldn't play if you didn't like it from the get go, right? I must also point out the fact that MaW3 was, pretty much, solely built by one man, James Bryant. Full Review »
