Over dit spel

Live the thrilling career of an army commander and lead your army to victory in a massive online World War III! Take control of the U.S.-led Joint Strike Force, the European Enforcers Corps, or the Russian Spetsnaz Guards Brigade in a persistent ongoing World War. Create your army to match your tactical style and create a strategy that will defeat your enemies.

You Are In Control

In addition to traditional RTS controls (mouse selection, hotkeys), EndWar goes beyond other Real Time Strategy games by letting you use your own voice to control your units, offering you true control at the speed of thought.

Putting You in the Battle

Instead of using the traditional top-down view, EndWar employs a unique third-person camera that puts you in the heart of the battle, making the use of terrain and cover even more critical to achieving victory. Zoom in and out at will and watch the devastation unfold as hundreds of units engage the enemy on fully destructible battlefields.

Armed for the Future

True to the Tom Clancy legacy, EndWar offers a wide range of vehicles, weapons and equipment based on real-world military research, giving you unprecedented access to the cutting-edge technology of tomorrow’s wars, such as drones and space-based weapons of mass destruction.

  • Go to war online in a persistent multiplayer World War III with fully-customizable battalions and units
  • Refined HUD and controls and new waypoint system, combined with EndWar’s proven revolutionary voice command system
  • 30 stunningly realistic real-world battlefields set in Europe and the United States, including Washington D.C., Paris, and Moscow
  • Deeply customizable armies featuring unit ranks and hundreds of upgrades add up to endless replay value.
  • Includes all the downloadable content released on consoles – maps, additional upgrades and battalions.
  • Watch the destruction unfold in spectacular detail in massive battles featuring hundreds of units and destructible environments.

Shouting out commands - priceless!

Seriously, EndWar is one of my favourite strategy games thanks to the awesome voice command option. I played it first on my Xbox 360 with a headset and gamepad. Both platforms run it equally well.

The game has no story to speak of, and once you figure out the mechanics you have to switch to expert mode (which is the second of three difficulty settings), otherwise it will be too easy. Don't be fooled, however - one mistake can cost you grately.

The units have a staggering number of upgrades and abilities that you buy for credits. The more successful your operations are, the more money you earn. Depending on your style, you can prioritize your upgrades.

The voice command feature is the meat of the game. On Xbox 360 I used it almost exclusively. On PC I combine it with mouse/keyboard to be in a few places at the same time. As an avid RTS player, with a few thousand ladder games completed in Starcraft, Warcraft III, and Starcraft II, I still think that thanks to the voice system EndWar offers an unparalleld level of immersion. That said, the game does not require such a high skill level to master as the aforementioned titles.

Unreal Engine 3 makes it still look awesome in 2016. It runs great on a dual core laptop with an intel 2.1 Ghz, 4GB Ram and a GT540m at 1280x720 maxed out details.

Not sure if it keeps you busy for a long time, but the campaign shouldn't take you more than 10-15 hours if you do not repeat too often. Due to its randomness and three playable factions, you might wanna repeat it.

I haven't checked the multiplayer mode on PC but it was fun playing it on Xbox 360. Not sure if the PC community is still there, though.

I strongly recommend the title as it is something truly unique with its voice command feature

My review

Let me start off by saying that I normally don't do reviews at all. It's just something I usually ignore or forget. Although this game made me want to write a review because... Well it's awesome!
The game is amazing, it has effective and simplistic mechanics that make matches complex and tactical. Don't be deceived by how "easy" or "simple" it is at first, when you start to really get deep into it, it gets harder and harder and more challenging, providing loads of fun for hours if needed.
I'm not really a strategy type of player but this game was an exception and it was a huge surprise to me since it was better than what I initially thought. I haven't played fully much yet but so far, from the moment I got in until the moment I decided to stop and play later, it kept me fully entertained and immersed on what was happening.
The only thing that din't please me and I might consider it as a con it's the fact that I could only put the resolution at 1280x720.
So basicly, I totally recommend people to try this game. Both strategy and non-strategy type of players.

TL;DR
Pros
  • Simplistic mechanics but that can make the game very complex in it's own away (Trust me, when you have more than 9 units on the battlefield it can become a real mess);
  • Amazing gameplay that comes both from the mechanics (previously mentioned) and the A.I;
  • Addictive and immersive.
Cons
  • Couldn't put the resolution to native, had to use 1280x720 (but it's not that big of a deal, it's awesome anyway);
  • Unfortunatly from what I understood multiplayer is dead. You can still play with friends and such but online would be better. (Still great game believe me and worth the money I spent).

I got this on sale for $2.59 during a Tom Clancy Sale. Here is the thing with this game, it is difficult further along into the game. As long as you make good decisions, and apply real-world tactics to this game, you will succeed. Sending all your troops in to smash and bash the enemy will not work. It can be slow-paced at times, which means that it is not based off of your reaction time, but the best strategy. I would highly recommend this game to someone who has time, patience, and who likes strategy games.

This game is much xbox 360. Its much easyer to control and the graphics are much better on the xbox 360. Quick tip, if you have an xbox 360 or when this game comes out for xbox 1. Get it on either of those because if you threw a potato on a keyboard... the game would be better then this on PC... great job Tom

Despite having spent hundreds of hours playing this game on all platforms (I had a non-Steam CD copy and a PS3 copy), I have a love-hate relationship with this game.

What I Loved
• Simple (Yet Satisfying) Gameplay - The gameplay, while really simple (rock-paper-scissors), felt very satisfying, especially online. The moment a retaliatory WMD is alerted to you and you're wondering where the heck it's going to come crashing down. The moment you ambush some enemy combat engineers with your concealed Riflemen. So many cool and tense moments I've experienced in this game. Having a good result in a match requires having both sharp reflexes and an indepth understanding of how the game works past the understanding of the combat triangle spoon-fed to you in the tutorials.

• Theatre of War - You could choose a loyalty to one faction and you fight for its glory + the team/community spirit in the online ToW (now dead, unfortunately).

• Music - I still listen to it when I want to get the adrenaline up. Major thanks to the composers (Matt Ragan + Alistair Hirst).

• Factions - To this day, I still think that the European Federation Enforcers Corps is probably one of the coolest near-futuristic factions ever created.

• Voice Acting - The amount of variety in voice acting was great, and the general's dialogue (in the briefings) were really cool and all of them had a great sense of personality even if they were just an image that talked.

What I Hated
• Bugs - Anyone remember the transport-freeze glitch? There were lots of little things that bugged the original EndWar which still sometimes goes on in my single-player matches today randomly.

• Upgrade Stacking - Every upgrade you purchased stacks on top of the other, so if you have a fully upgraded battalion you won't have much trouble trampling over any other player who had less than half the amount of upgrades you have. That, when the original ToW was still happening, was just totally unfair in my opinion, and was what contributed to the multiplayer's downfall; most newcomers got disheartened facing overwhelming odds at the veterans and gave up. You could not dodge or negate the effect of sequential bombardments of secondary powers on your units if you were a new player, which gave a grossly unfair advantage to the veteran.

• Air Support - I do not mind having a type of off-map support which assists in destroying your enemy, but the way that it was implemented in the original game was just poor. Point-Click-AoEDamage, which you could hardly avoid (yes, I am aware of EMP stopping it, but you have to launch it almost the second the strike is sent, which makes it very hard to counter). Another game of the same type of genre, "World in Conflict", made by former "Massive Entertainment" (now "Ubisoft Massive", the ones developing another Tom Clancy game called "The Division"), did a much better job with off-map supports with their timed, skill/strategic/luck-based air support as it rewarded those who could exploit their enemy's weakness when they were off-guard, or try to get the player to predict how their enemy would play and exploit that predictability.

• Combat Tree - While combat was satisfying, it did feel way too simple. This was a major criticism of the game after it came out - everyone was requesting more depth to the game or to a potential sequel.




Anyway, besides all that, this is what is constantly on my mind whenever I think about this game...

Potential Not Realised (Cut Content)
I searched through the game files (audio, subtitle, code etc) and found a lot of cut content that never made it into the game. This cut content includes the following:

- Wave Mode: The devs almost provided a gamemode for less-experienced players / people who did not like competitive matches against real people in the persistent online ToW. This mode had you fight against masses of regular army units, controlled by the AI, in which you had to defend your position. Winning a battle this way wouldn't have provided as many points as a player vs player outcome would have reached, but it would have contributed to the battleboard on a contested territory. It was also meant to be featured in the single-player campaign a few times as an extra gamemode. If you decided to play with an extra person, this could have been a pretty decent co-op mode that you could potentially play with friends to kill some time.

- Terrorist Raids: The terrorist faction which you encounter in the Prelude to War story were not made solely for the single-player story - they were meant to provide yet another Player vs AI option for the online ToW to fight against if they did not wish to fight against real opponents to rank up their battalions, just like the wave mode. These terrorist raids would, obviously, attempt to raid army/air bases. Again, you could join up with a friend which would lead to another type of co-operative Player vs AI experience.

- LAN ToW: The developers originally intended for players to be able to play their own ToW with or against friends if they did not wish to compete over the persistent online ToW. This is THE most annoying since the persistent online ToW is now dead - it could have kept a bit of that ToW spirit alive.

- Cut Story Content: The main purpose of EndWar's original narrative was meant to serve as a conclusion to Ubisoft's first Tom Clancy saga. It meant to join up all TC media up until that point (Rainbow Six, HAWX, Ghost Recon, Splinter Cell etc) into one game in an effort to end it all to make way for a reboot of the TC series to start fresh (which they're sort of doing now, what with Ghost Recon: Wildlands and Rainbow Six: Siege). Judging from the unused subtitles in the game's files, the overall background narrative of the entire game was meant to be set around a futuristic museum piece named "EndWar", which retold the course of events of World War III using painstakingly pieced-together recordings from the "Overlord Battle Interface", which commanders of all three contesting superpowers of the war used (the name of this interface is mentioned when the player has to go through the voice recognition tutorial at the start of the game). All of this information was meant to be told to the player by the narrator - the same narrator who spoke over the Prelude to War's introduction video. This narrator would provide more background commentary of the plot to the game and, depending on your actions, imply that the world in which the player is living in is under the control of one of these superpowers which has evolved into a New World Order (e.g. if the United States won the war, he was meant to say during the outro to the game "With the emergence of three superpowers... with only one world to share... this concludes the story of the war to end all wars... remember those who gave their lives to fight for our freedoms. Thank you, and god bless the United States of Mankind." On the otherhand, if the European Federation won the war, the last bit is replaced with "remember those who gave their lives to fight for unity. Discipline always, Citizens of the Federation". For the Russian Federation, it was "remember those who gave their lives to fight for state. Glory to the Motherlands! Return to your duties." Check the files yourself if you don't believe me, it makes the original story concept seem way better in my opinion).

And do you know what the most annoying thing about all this is? Literally all of the things I didn't like about this game were going to be fixed in their sequel - EndWar 2! They were going to update the story, the combat tree and finish the stuff that they didn't manage to fully implement for release which they had to cut. Such a shame. Hopefully Ubisoft come back to it one day, but I doubt it.

Bland, stale, boring, unenthusiastic gameplay. Wooden dialogue. Dull visuals. The premise and cutscenes are the only things going for it. Voice-command is a cool idea not implemented well here. Recommend World In Conflict instead.

I dont know why chimps appear to be coding Game controls these days, when TWENTY YEARS AGO, even before the excellent Half-Life, many games were also allowing FULL KEYBOARD CONTROL RE-MAPPING to allow the disabled and/or left-handed to use the Number-Keypad to play a game in the same way as right-handed people are given right-handed control options.

EVERY SINGLE GAME that gives the middle finger to those of us who use the Number-keypad to control games will get a negative review..

One of the most underrated RTS Games it is almost sad to see this game be neglected by the community. Voice controls were revolutionary for its time, works better than a Kinect (Originally played it on the 360). The story mode is pretty decent if you want to follow it, and if you want to really focus on it you can always buy the novel cheaper than this as an E-book (Sidenote: I always loved how Tom would just give Ubisoft an idea and they finished a game before he even wrote the damn novel. Ubisoft just loves putting his name on any military game they have).

The combat system is pretty easy to get the hang of, and I recommened to RTS players who looking for a straight up battle rather than worrying about politics and gathering resources like other games. Although those mechanics are really great, sometimes you just want to have a one track mind when playing games sometimes!

Replayability is high, the combat system is great, the graphics are decent given the budget they had, and very sad to not see this series progress other than a flash game. Overall fantastic game for RTS fans

Great game. Definitely is worth far more than its new counter-part "Endwar Online".
Though voice commands work 85% of the time, it does not diminish the experience, and even though mutliplayer went offline a while ago, it is still worth picking.

Endwar is an AMAZING game. It's got good gameplay, combined with good strategy. Also it's got an awesome feature. In Endwar you can control your units by talking. It's got voice-commanding, which i find awesome to use when i'm playing campaign. For exampel, i can say: "Unit 3 attack hostile 7", and unit 1 would move to engage hostile 7.

It's good strategy is amazing. Once i were up against 5 russian tank squads, i had 1 european tank squad, a gunship squad and an artillery squad. They had to move over a bridge to get to uplink Lima, so it got really dense at that bridge. By using my artillery, and gunships effectively, i destroyed all 5 russian tank squads. In Endwar, strength doesn't always come in numbers.

Pros:
Amazing strategy usage.
Voice-commanding (I absolutely LOVE it! Makes me feel like a real commander xD)
Good balanced gameplay

Cons:
Multiplayer is dead, so if you're buying it in 2015 and up, you can only play singleplayer
The Theater of War online scenario ended in 2009, and no new ones have been hosted.
In skirmish, the 3 factions roughly have the same units, with minor differences.

My Rating:
4 Out Of 5 Stars

One of the most underrated RTS Games it is almost sad to see this game be neglected by the community. Voice controls were revolutionary for its time, works better than a Kinect (Originally played it on the 360). The story mode is pretty decent if you want to follow it, and if you want to really focus on it you can always buy the novel cheaper than this as an E-book (Sidenote: I always loved how Tom would just give Ubisoft an idea and they finished a game before he even wrote the damn novel. Ubisoft just loves putting his name on any military game they have).

The combat system is pretty easy to get the hang of, and I recommened to RTS players who looking for a straight up battle rather than worrying about politics and gathering resources like other games. Although those mechanics are really great, sometimes you just want to have a one track mind when playing games sometimes!

Replayability is high, the combat system is great, the graphics are decent given the budget they had, and very sad to not see this series progress other than a flash game. Overall fantastic game for RTS fans

One of my all time favorite strategy games. Unit detail is stunning and the ability to upgrade units as they gain ranks is great too.

Right.
So.
Where do I start?

Tom Clancy's EndWar is a real-time strategy/real-time tactics game, unfortunately neglected by its developers, released in 2008 and featuring a World War 3 where your decisions decide the course of the war. It involves three factions - the USA, the European Federation (A unified EU) and the Russian Federation (Which has again expanded into Eastern Europe. Including, to nobody's big surprise, Sevastopol). The interesting thing about EndWar is that it is not like other RTS or RTTs - you do not decide where each army strikes, or what to research, or even if you want to make nice with China so it invades Russia - you are a mere colonel in a special operations branch of your faction's army, and the only control you have over the world is where you deploy. Whether you win or lose the battle as a result of said deployment changes whether your faction grows or shrinks. Other world events, such as typhoons or the U.S.S. George Bush being sunk by your nation's WMD and airstrikes are communicated through the world map's news service.

The campaign is split into two parts - a Prelude to War, in which the game explains the backstory and the game mechanics, as well as how and why World War III erupted and to give you a feel for each faction, and the Third World War itself. The AI is competent depending on difficulty level (On normal, for example, it is fairly competent, while on the hardest difficulty it is very competent), and the graphics are good for a game released in 2008.

All-in-all, I would very much recommend this game to everyone. Unfortunately, the Theatre of War servers (WW3 multiplayer) have been shut down and as a result players are restricted to games with friends or offline games. There are groups that still play EndWar matches, however I am not sure exactly of their URLs - they are, however, active on the Community Hub.

WARNING: SPOILERS
EndWar is a game for those who prefer strategy over running like a maniac with SMG's. You are a colonel, your rank is only below the generals, although you really have more combat power than they do. As a commander of the Joint Strike Force (USA), the Enforcer Corps (Europe), or the Spetsnaz (Ruskies), you get your very own battle advisor, in other words, a war secretary, a whole battalion of your nations finest, and access to WMD's (Weapon of Mass Destruction). One of those weapons being a big sattalite dropping kinetic rods with enough firepower to take out Time's Square. The combat is simple. click on a unit, and tell it: Attack enemy, Secure Uplink (Major Part Of Game), Send Nuke Here, or even evacuate to ensure its survival. However, the game was engineered for one purpose,,,,VOICE COMMANDS. Yes ladies and gentlmen, even though this was made in 2008 it still surpasses even Googles voice search. Using a simple way of speaking to units such as, "Unit 3, attack hostile 4." Why use a mouse when you can just say "SEND THE NUKE!" Before I get excited, i'm gonna stop myself and just finish with this. Watch a gameplay video, see if its your cup of tea, buy the tea, and DECLARE WAR!

A VERY underrated rts. Unlike other RTS games, you don't use your mouse (though you can), bur rather, you use your voice. The game's voice recognition is VERY responsive and you won't have an issue with it. The only downside of the game is that it's capped at 30fps just like the console version. As someone who can't stand anything under 60fps it bugged me to no end. But the quality of the game made me look past it.

Tom Clancy's End War is a war strategy game which takes place in a modern near future.



Pros :


+ Good and interesting campaing mode


+ Replayability value


+ diffrent modes


+ 9.99 $ " Worth the cheap price"


+ 6 - 7 hours campaing ( but there are 3 diffrent endings depending on the faction you choose)







Cons:


- Camera view problems


- Sometimes AI doesnt respond accurately


- Some maps look very similar


- Graphics are not that good " Becuase it's a 2009 game :) "




Verdict : 7 / 10 " Good"

A great turn for a strategic game, much more in-depth and planned out than your casual strategy game is. This one can be played with your own style without the frustration of tactics and is very open to your own decisions. It's also a nice touch you can customize your units and attacks entirely. Though the camera controls could use some work, I highly suggest this game for people who like a mix of action, war-based, light strategy, and free thinking type games.

EndWar is a decent real time strategy with a groundbreaking voice control feature. Unfortunately it doesn't always work as promised, so occasionally you have to shout your commands a couple of times more than planned. Eventually you'll just go back to the way you usually give commands; by using menus. It was a good idea but it was too early to implement it just yet. The technology wasn't entirely ready for this kind of gameplay back then.

And yet despite this flaw I had a good time with it, because it does give you the idea that you're the commander in charge and there's an actual war going on. Now, there's not a lot of tactics involved when we're talking about the battles here, because the idea is based on the real life rock paper scissors game. So if you use the right unit against the other you'll most likely win (depending on the amount of units, of course). It's simple, but it works and it doesn't make the game tediously boring, like many other strategy games. It's by no means perfect, but it's definitely fun. Just avoid the voice control feature.

One of the greatest strategy games that I have played. I had little complaints and enjoyed the game. I would give the game a 8/10. It would be higher but there is some flaws *cough* camara locked on unit *cough* and multiplayer is kinda dead... but aside from that it's still great.

Tom Clancys Endwar is a Great RTS and Strategy Game

It provides hours of fun and entertainment for a low cost as well. Something else i really liked is the story on this game was alot better than i remember. Now it is not a ground breaking story and is not really rememberable i just enjoyed the short cutscenes after every battle that detailed the battle around the globe.

Pros
Good graphics
Each unit is unique and is needed for the overall success
Voice command is a charm
Low price
Detailed Units
Each army has unique units


Cons
Matches can become predicatable so play on higher diffuculty
Not a lenghty story about 8 hours but not bad
Only 3 armies



If you want a fun RTS that is not too expensive get this.
