I have played World in Conflict for about 6 years now and I strongly recommend it. It is one of the best games I have ever played. The graphics are still fantastic years later. The mechanics have a property of "emergent difficulty"--they are simple at first, allowing the player to be engaged, but over time the complexity of the game reveals itself and even now, 6 years later, I am learning new tactics and ways to play. After playing WiC, other strategy games are simply not as satisfying.

Common questions answered:

Why does the game crash after loading?

This issue arises on Windows 7. The developers never resolved it as support was mostly cut after Massive was acquired by Ubisoft, but the crash is easily fixable. Go to your "My Documents" folder in Windows and find the "World in Conflict" folder. Then, scroll to the "Game Options" text file. Be careful not to edit anything unintentionally. Scroll to the "MyDX10Flag" and change the number next to it to zero. The game should run without problems. Visit massgate.net and post in General Discussion if you still have issues, we will try to help.

Is the game still active online?

There are always 2 servers full with a variety of maps in their rotation. There are many experienced players around, especially on the forums, who can help you learn the game mechanics and ideal tactics. The activity level started falling in 2009 but has remained steady at about 2000-3000 players active since 2012. This is not a lot, but it is plenty to be able to enjoy all that WiC has to offer for new players. Visit the forums at massgate.net to talk to experienced players.

Is the campaign good?

The campaign has an intriguing story but it is not as tactically engaging as the multiplayer portion. I recommend playing the campaign to familiarize yourself with the game functions and then to dive into the multiplayer. Many players are agressive to new players, but these people are often bad, so you should simply ignore them and try your best.

Any tips for gameplay?

1. Don't move your units in a blob. Try to separate them.
2. As a beginner, don't use artillery units. If you do use them, use only one. Your team will appreciate it.
3. Don't be discouraged! As you play more, you will get a lot better and soon you'll be laughing at the noobs who play like you used to.
4. Use the chat and the "Q" button commands to communicate with the other players on your team.

I hope you will try out WiC. If you don't want to pay, you can easily pirate the game on ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥.se or your favorite torrent site, but you'll need a game key to play online. Message me or go online to massgate.net/forums.php if you have any questions.

Great for those who like to manage and control troop positions. I was dissappointed to see that multiplayer is pretty much dead though....I just came to it too late.

This game when it first came out in 2007 was one of the best strategies of all time yet it did not get one ounce of fame. This game has graphics that beat or even surpass the the total war franchise. The campaign's story line is reviting and amazing. The gameplay is amazing whether you like to call in reinforcements via paradrop or drop daisy cutter bombs on your enemy this is a fantastic game. Great game Massive Entertainment!

From the developer of Ground Control and Ground Control 2, I really shouldn't have to say anything more than that. Though now defunct, this real time strategy features one of the most unique multiplayer systems. Each player on a team plays a different role: Infantry, Armor, Air, or Support. This makes for a more cooperational multiplayer experience that you can't get in any other real time strategy, perfect for a LAN party. Much like the Ground Control series, this game has no base building and relies entirely on dropping units into supply zones and maximizing their utility.

The single player campagin is very scripted allowing for spectacular showcases of destruction. I play through it every few years. The graphical fidelity of this game crushed computers upon release and the graphics still hold up to this day. Sure to please any fan of the real time strategy genre, as a fairly hidden gem, this title would make a wonderful gift.
