  1. If you can stand the graphics, the AI, and weapon physics, this game will be tolerable for you. For the rest of you, I strongly encourage you to look elsewhere.
  2. Between all the tedious downloads, sorry gameplay, and weak audio and visuals, KumaWar simply can't compete.

    Sounds promising, but from the shoddy graphics to the horrid enemy AI, this game fails to be any fun at all. [July 2004, p.68]

    No matter how interesting the real-life situation is, the game manages to make it more boring than missions in most budget shooters. [Sept 2004, p.76]

    If you find your trigger finger itching, you'd better buy yourself a WWII or sci-fi shooter to sate your appetite, because Kuma/War manages to get it very wrong. In every single sense. [Dec 2004, p.101]
  6. Aside from AI being strangely buggy and inconsistent, the enemy placement is simply sadistic. I played the first level on the easiest difficulty and have decided to name it "Quicksave or Die." That is currently my only praise for the game - it runs, and the developers have added a working quicksave feature.

    How come the developer's don't realize the utter disgustingness of this whole idea? Making money upon having REAL people killed in How come the developer's don't realize the utter disgustingness of this whole idea? Making money upon having REAL people killed in REAL life? The main idea is to have LESS war and shooting events in the world, and you already have this kid expecting MORE war content than Iraq!!! Get to your senses, what you're doing is BAD by essence!!!

    I felt this was a realistic look at modern war and am expecting much from it in the future. I hope to see more than Iraq.
