Great Big War Game is a standout among war games on any platform and an enormous iPhone title by any right. Start digging into the massive campaign and you might be missing out on other iPhone games for a long, long while.
This game deserves minimum 9. I'm giving it 10 to counter with the negatives. This is a brilliant strategy game. With a 50 mission campaign and online multiplayer you will never get bored of it. Who the hell would give this game a bad score. Metacritic, sort out the user scores for iOS games.
This is easily among the top 5 games I've played on iOS. The AI could definitely use a bit of work, but it still holds a tremendous amount of entertainment value. My first game of this genre was probably The Perfect General on the PC, or Military Madness on the TurboGrafx. Yes, the cutscenes are stupid, but they're not why you play the game, and eventually they did grow on me. This is the sort of game, alongside Shadow Era, Carcassone and Ascension that really gives me hope for the future of the platform. Every day a new zombie game or some retro 8-bit game or some retro 8-bit zombie game arrives, and the pool is diluted. GBWG sits comfortably atop a pile of lesser quality games, giving you outrageous bang for your buck time after time after time.
And that's *before* you get to the multiplayer....
Improving upon the previous iteration in a variety of ways, fans will certainly take note of the greatly expanded single player campaign, the inclusion of fog of war, and the asynchronous cross-platform multiplayer mode with a plethora of maps to use.
This game plays beautifully and looks fantastic on my third generation iPad, and I can definitely recommend it to those of you who enjoy strategy games. You won't be disappointed with this purchase, guaranteed.
There's 50 single player missions with plenty of different scenarios to enjoy and master. The online multiplayer is worth coming back to as well, though compared to some iOS-only turn-based games it feels a bit unrefined. Still, this is an impressive package for strategy fans.
Looking solely at the gameplay, Great Big War Game delivers. On the other hand, there is more to a game than just the gameplay itself-appearances do matter. From that perspective, it's in need of a little help.
I love this game. It reminds me a lot Advance Wars but with up to date graphics.
Normally mobile games are something I just play because I can't play on my PC but this is as much fun as anything that costs 60 bucks.
This is perhaps the most sexist and misogynist game I have played in quite some time. The design and gameplay is great from a strategic point of view, but I can't imagine a woman playing this game and thinking it was ok.
