  1. With High Treason, Act of War has become one of the most flexible multiplayer RTSs since "Rise of Nations." It's also still the best "Command & Conquer: Generals" clone since, well, "Command & Conquer: Generals."
  2. High Treason ratchets up the cool gameplay and techno-thriller storytelling that was introduced in Act of War.

    The naval combat and countryside levels make a change from the urban warfare that ran through the original, but it's the engaging, conspiracy-fuelled storyline that keeps this feeling fresh. [June 2006, p.96]

    A decent add-on, but lacks the drive that made the original game so good. The graphics are still great. [May 2006]

A very accurate modern RTS with detailed combat on land, sea and air, and a very good buy. Full Review »

    Cool Game and would recommend it to any hard core RTS fan looking for something new. The graphis are amazing. Anything from the explosins to Cool Game and would recommend it to any hard core RTS fan looking for something new. The graphis are amazing. Anything from the explosins to the water effects will stun you. The story is a little flaky but the gameplay is great. Full Review »
