An exceptional console RTS that solves the problem of having to use a controller to quickly respond to on-screen action. Great graphics and a true sense of an epic global conflict make this one of the best RTS titles to arrive on any console. The online multiplayer mode is a real highlight allowing you to engage in battles that change the face of Europe and the US.
Wow, quite the experience. RTS games alone retain that certain quality of "I am commanding an army, feel my wrath," but with the addition of vocal support, I was blown away. The entertainment is top-tier, providing tens of hours of gameplay either defending, attacking, securing, or just plain destroying objectives in RTS open world map variants. As aforementioned with the addition of vocal support, you may simple utter the command "Unit 1 attack hostile 3," or "Unit 3 secure Alpha," to which the game understands with perfect clarity. Highly recommended to those who wish to expand their gaming horizons.
The online multiplayer is addictive and fun too, thanks to the context provided by the evolving world, and although the game is marred by weak singleplayer narrative and lacklustre AI, the lasting impression is still well within the positive.
Once you get over the fact that playing EndWar makes you look and sound like a bit of a twat, you start to have quite a lot of geek-fuelled fun ordering your army about the battlefield, but we can't help but feel that EndWar is more proof of concept technical showcase than fully fleshed out triple-A title.
The voice command system in EndWar is terrific, and hopefully, future games will take advantage of a similar control scheme. It just isn't enough by itself to raise the game beyond "mediocre RTS." It's definitely worth checking out to see voice command done right, but overall, it lacks the depth and substance to bring anyone over from superior PC alternatives.
A fairly average strategy game for x-box. 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.
Although you quickly realize that there isn't that much variety to the game-play it is incredibly satisfying barking orders to your troops.......when it understands you. It does get a little tedious when you have to repeat a command 5 or 6 times. Overall it is probably better as a rental since there is not enough replay value to keep you coming back.
This game is not very good. The voice controls are hard to work which really **** 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.
