About the Game

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.

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.

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.

It's a good game which takes the basic idea from the books, however the game it's self is just a basic RTS game for startes i would say. I will still recommend the game for it's creativity and general idea and lay out.

It's pretty cool but the whole voice thing is really frustrating.

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.

[Rating: 75/100]
