  • Summary: Similar to classic titles such as Advance Wars and Battle Isle, the game takes turn-based strategy gaming away from the micro-management overkill that it has become and using simple, proven rock-paper-scissors principles, reopens the genre to a wider audience. With a modern 3D engineSimilar to classic titles such as Advance Wars and Battle Isle, the game takes turn-based strategy gaming away from the micro-management overkill that it has become and using simple, proven rock-paper-scissors principles, reopens the genre to a wider audience. With a modern 3D engine providing the graphics, a proven, easy to learn, but difficult to master set of rules surrounded by an engaging plot and challenging gameplay, the game will appeal to newcomers and hard-core gamers alike. Also available is unlimited access and infinite possibilities to mod the game through open data structure, open scripts and an easy-to-use editor. [Meridian4] Expand

  1. Simple gameplay, incredible game. A nice storyline embedded in a school, featuring futuristic units – if you're into tactics and strategy, don't miss this one. Though, you don't have to save the world in Future Wars.

    Future Wars takes a well-worn template and executes it with little more than mediocrity. [Nov 2010, p.83]
  3. Future Wars is simply a mediocre game. If you want a pick-up-and-play wargame, dust off Massive Assault or buy a Nintendo DS and play the real Advance Wars.

I know many better looking games that are much less fun than this one.
    I loved playing it - up to one of the later missions where I just can't beat the oponent :)

    A sci-fi turn based game - everything I love. A few complementary unit, bases and resources to conquer. Big problem is the nonexistent AI andA sci-fi turn based game - everything I love. A few complementary unit, bases and resources to conquer. Big problem is the nonexistent AI and the unbalanced campaign. One map is a show stopper, you can't beat it without cheats. Could have been a nice time waster, it's just a poorly developed game. Expand

    I love turn based games, I don't love this. The game mechanics are awful, it just feels bad, looks bad and feels like turn based teletubbiesI love turn based games, I don't love this. The game mechanics are awful, it just feels bad, looks bad and feels like turn based teletubbies warfare. Gonad soup. Expand
