World In Conflict

Recommended Posts

Gigantic Screenshot


Basically, Cold War breaks out into a land war in europe in the late 80s. Soviets mount a surprise invasion of Seattle. Fast-paced, reinforcement-based RTS (no corny base-building here) with actual military equipment from the era. The game plays like a movie with, oddly enough, character development in cut scenes between missions. Narrated by Alec Baldwin. Not all that long, but very very good. Patriotic right down to the 80s rock and roll in several parts, but given the culture at the time, it fits.


Go play it now.

it's also coming out for the 360, don't know if it well translate well, but the game does look awesome

I've never been a huge RTS fan, but from what I've played, RTS games are dicy on consoles. The Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth 2 and Command and Conquer 3 were not bad for console RTS games, and Tom Clancy's Endwar is supposed to be excellent with it's voice activated commands, but then again, you get a game like Supreme Commander which scored very well for the PC version, but the translation to console was apparently a buggy mess. The biggest gripe of course, is the console controller and it not having the precision or speed of a mouse. World in Conflict is a game I would like to play at some point though.

It has largely rekindled by love for military jargon, though it is still somewhat dumbed-down...I'm pleased that they didn't explain every single term or acronym that the layman may not know. Hearing things like "CAS sorties", "danger close" and "blue-on-blue situation" undiluted by explanation fill my greyish heart with joy.
