  • Summary: [Xbox Live Arcade] War World is a fast-paced third-person shooter that combines a unique blend of heart-pumping action and tactical gameplay, introducing an entirely new genre to XLA. War World throws players directly into combat on the battlefield of a war-torn planet. Control one of 10 different Mechanoids, each with special abilities, and wreak havoc throughout the 100-level single-player campaign. Imagine a planet dedicated just to the art of war. This third-person shooter combines both single-player and multiplayer into one action-packed downloadable game. The game features four multiplayer game modes for up to eight players (Capture the Flag, Bomb Assault, Death Match, and Team Death Match) and a huge single-player campaign War World. [Ubisoft] Expand

  1. Overall War World is a reasonably fun, good looking XBLA title. The biggest problem is mech balance, which hopefully can be fixed in a later patch.
  2. You’ll certainly enjoy the explosive chaos of these Unreal Tournament–style battles; but with only four game modes and limited match options, even blowing your opponents to smithereens can get boring.
  3. 55
    War World is a game that almost everyone should pass on. If you are a fan of mech games, options like MechAssault or Chromehounds are a smarter choice than War World.
  4. War World is an uninspired mech combat game that isn't worth your time.
  5. If you're a fan of online multiplayer slaughter, then it's a safe bet that you've already got plenty of games that do the same thing as War World, and do it a lot better.
  6. Sadly, War World holds your attention about as long as a paperclip and a Post-It note. [Issue#39]
  7. Speedy shooter much in common with cack like "Outrigger." Get your mech fix elsewhere. [Christmas 2008, p.94]
