    If you never read the original novel now you have the best opportunity to learn the story in more interactive form. Be ready find some serious challenge though! [Feb 2012]

    The War of the Worlds offers an interesting take on the old sci-fi classic. Great voice work and wonderful music combines perfectly with the 50's look to create a beautiful presentation. The game's mechanics however are very inaccurate and as the game is pretty difficult and unforgiving, what could be a great experience is ultimately ruined by frustration.

    The War of the Worlds may not tell the most original story of the year, but it's a stylish action game full of exciting moments you won't soon forget. Sadly there are a few control issues and frustrating puzzles that hurt the overall pacing. However, even with these minor complaints, The War of the Worlds is a great adventure that is well worth your ten dollars!
