    As a real-time strategy game, EndWar is an intimate and deeply nuanced experience.

    With its slick voice-command system, depth of strategy and frenetic action, EndWar is one game I'll still be playing after its evaluation. [Dec 2008, p.96]
  3. The best RTS on consoles by a long way. EndWar is considerably more than a gimmick. [Christmas 2008, p.78]
  4. Graphics rock: You are able to see every detail of a soldier and if you manage to see an airstrike or an EMP-bomb explosion, the ‘wow-effect’ won’t wear off after the first time.
  5. EndWar is a polished, innovative game that does a great job pairing its impressive voice command feature with a focused, fast-paced design.
  6. Put very simply, EndWar is a must buy for any console owner that has been waiting for a console war game done right.
  7. Endwar is a lesson to all, then. You can make a strategy game work on a console; you just have to speed it up, dumb it down, and somehow keep it smart.
  8. This decision by the developers, to focus on action over boredom, will help EndWar interest a more broad type of gamer.

The voice controls are hard to work which really sucks the fun out of this game. Also you don't really do anything, you just bark orders at people which usually the orders aren't even what you said like I said it's the bad voice controls. Full Review »

The controls don't get in the way and there is an upgrade system, however for the most part it is fairly linear. It also has very good graphics. Other than that there is not much else to raise it above average other than it's voice control system. The game is good to take out and play a few levels every once in a while. Full Review »
