    War, the Game is a title that all strategy lovers should try out at least once in order to see how smaller teams can innovate by taking the classic concepts of the genre and turning them into something new.

    A simple to play but hard to master strategy game at an absolute bargain price. A must-have for strategy fans.

    War, the Game has stripped away the deep complexity typical of the real-time strategy game and left the player with a simple-to-learn, hard-to-master global dominance game that allows the armchair general to concentrate far more on the actual strategic planning and implementation of battle than on the logistics that support them.

    War, the Game is as simple as the title suggests it is: a virtual imagination of RISK. Yet, anyone who looks beyond the simple presentation and rules can see a strategy game in its purest form. Tactics is everything, and if you lose you only have yourself to blame.

    My problem with War, the Game is that it's not really interesting enough.

    Its low price tag is not enough to overshadow the fact that War, the Game delivers minimum content. Although it is natural to raise objections to its strategical aspect, a small number of scenarios and no multiplayer game are the things that are fatally snapping its neck.

    Boils the RTS genre down to great simplicity, and does it very well. Thats not to say that any strategy is missing, you must think hard aboutBoils the RTS genre down to great simplicity, and does it very well. Thats not to say that any strategy is missing, you must think hard about tactics and maneuvers you wish to use and it can become very challenging. The current price tag warrants the content, however its releasing on Steam very soon (will probably be on there whilst you read this) and with its steam release comes Multiplayer and delicious new content (not sure if the price will go up at all), which will add hours and hours to an already great experience. Really had fun with it. The only gripe I have with is the flag graphics could be cleaned up a lot. Expand
