    This game just has an unexplicable charm to it that makes me come back to it again and again.

    Trenches is an excellent RTS (real-time strategy) game with no direct goals to urge you onward. If that sounds fine to you, go ahead-give it a try.

    Instead of using the brutal realities of war for emotive gain it's a backdrop for cartoonish brutality, and I like that. However, creative strategy isn't rewarded and Trenches quickly becomes a war of attrition.

    An addictive trench-filled WWI strategy game that shares a few aspects with the war itself: too much death and limited technology.

    A clever strategy game that needs additional modes and factions to complement its accessibility with depth.

    In the end Trenches proves that war can be fun, and since mankind thinks that it deserves all the wars it gets. Logic, got to love it.
