The world enjoys an unprecedented era of peace as enhanced defense technology eliminates the threat of nuclear war. But can it last? 2020. Constant depletion of resources has international tensions at a breaking point. One spark will ignite what no one thought could happen...a third and final world war. Strategy for the next generation: Led by creative director Michael de Plater (Rome Total War), EndWar promises to redefine strategy gaming. Designed for next-gen consoles EndWar creates a theatre of war, immersing you in the drama of World War III in a way you never thought possible. Fight For Your Nation: Pick a side US, Europe, Russia - the fate of the world is in your hands. If you don't step in to save your homeland, who will? Command Your Army: Grow your army into the most powerful force on the planet. Your army is completely customizable, and experience breeds strength - your units grow more powerful with every campaign you fight. Light Up The City of Lights: Tom Clancy's World War III won't be won by capturing remote deserts or grasslands but by striking countries in the heart. Paris, Moscow, Washington D.C. will all erupt in flames as you battle your way through the fully destructive playground. A Whole New Kind of Massive: EndWar is an online multiplayer experience unlike anything you've ever encountered. 16 player matchups? Try hundreds. 30 minute battles? Try persistent matchups lasting for months at a time. This isn't a skirmish, it's World War III. Talk Your Way to Victory: Put the controller aside and start shouting commands. EndWar can be played almost entirely via voice command. [Ubisoft] Expand

    With its slick voice-command system, depth of strategy and frenetic action, EndWar is one game I'll still be playing after its evaluation. [Dec 2008, p.96]
  2. This decision by the developers, to focus on action over boredom, will help EndWar interest a more broad type of gamer.
  3. EndWar gives us a wonderfully fresh look at the future of the RTS genre.
  4. The voice control is almost perfect and absolutely trend-setting. But three gameplay-wise almost identical groups and similar missions are too little to captivate in the long term.
  5. Console players interested in seeing what all the fuss about RTS is about are probably best served here rather than with the other mediocre efforts to date.
  6. So, Endwar has a novelty feature that works really well and is fun to use. It’s just a shame that there are some small issues, because this really could be the next step in console warfare.

    But EndWar's biggest flaw? Insane micromanagement. [Dec 2008, p.68]

    It's like Smurfs go to war but without the Smurfs and a lot more death and arty and airstrikes and tanks and apc's.

    It is amazing how balanced this game is, it really emphasizes the need for a wide spread of units. The rock paper scissors formula isIt is amazing how balanced this game is, it really emphasizes the need for a wide spread of units. The rock paper scissors formula is ingeniously synchronized with every single unit. Tom Clancy's Endwar has an RTS multiplayer unmatched by any game on the Xbox-360. The micromanagement tools are superb and easy to handle. Microsoft should have given Halo Wars to these guys. Expand

    Based on the extremely limited demo (one battlefield, no special features like WMD or airstrikes), the game was still impressive and fun Based on the extremely limited demo (one battlefield, no special features like WMD or airstrikes), the game was still impressive and fun enough for me toI consider this the best console RTS title ever. With the persistent online campaigns, this game will attract a huge Ghost Recon-like loyal fanbase. Expand
