A fun albeit, dated, rts that gives you the most enjoyment from the skirmishes. They are rather large skirmishes, and I mena LARGE, I was honestly surprised to see the number of AI you could add, it was this feature, really that made the game so much fun for me, the large scale rts battles made this well worth the, less than a dollar, I spent on it. In terms of gameplay it is rather standard and sometimes tedious, though despite all its short comings, I'd say if it's on sale, pick it up if you want another rts, nothing too special but for less than a dollar you get your money's worth.

Why all the hate? Do not buy this game now if you don't collect games or if you haven't played the game before. I got WWIII:BG the date it appeared on steam out of nostalgia; I used to play it years ago.

If you're actually looking for a good new flashy RTS game look elsewhere (hell, even World in Conflict), don't hate on this game just because it's old. (that being said the map engine was awesome at the time. heavily changing terrain during gameplay, building structures, hidden units, etc.)

Ich rate von Kauf des Games ab. Die Screenshots stimmen nicht mit dem Spiel an sich Überein den die Bilder die man bei der shop seite sieht wurden mit HD Texturen verbessert und wenn man dan das Spiel spielt hat man nur noch 3D block graphic. Ich würde mich nicht so Beschweren hätten die gleich die Original bilder reingestellt.

For all the people that do not recommend this game: you should probably stop buying games that are older than you :)
Now about the game: It was and still is a great RTS and keep in mind this came out in 2001. It brings back so many good memories and bad (when my WWIII:BG CD got scratched and couldn't play the game anymore). I recommend this game to people that started gaming with 8-bit graphics games, not with COD and CS :)

Boy was I excited when I saw this title on Steam. WWIII:BG is the first real video game I've ever layed and I absolutely loved it. While the gameplay itself may not be up to 2013 RTS standards, the music, ambience, mission creativity, mechanics, and immersion are top notch for its time. Sure there are annoying pathing bugs and stupid AI, but it's definitely not gamebreaking. A nostalgic 10/10.

Do you like C&C? This is the same game, just a bit more annoying. I had fun, but the game was dull. Because I had fun, it gets a thumbs up. I only wish there was a "meh" option. Nothing special here,

Its quite an Old school game so it won't just Simply run on Win7 & Win8 you have to get the ww3_patch_v_1_2 to get it to even remotely start to work normally, but other than that the game is smooth. You just gotta fix the settings for resolution and such to get it to work. Overal its good just gotta have alot of patience to even to get it to play

This is one of the best RTS games I've ever played. It has a slower pace than Starcraft yet it's just as competitive. Most importantly for me I feel it's more forgiving that other RTS games and it has a very enjoyable learning curve.

I do not know why this game is getting alot of hate, It works prefect on my Win 7 64 bit Ultimate, And it is very fun. I played through the first tutorial just now and Had a lot of fun. It was easy controls and simple RTS game-play.

With all the "StarCraft" and "Age of Empires" wannabes clogging store shelves, it's rewarding to find a real-time strategy game that does its own thing and does it pretty well.It ain't particularly novel and it ain't particularly easy, but it is engrossing and refreshingly reliant on strategic thinking to see you through.Reality Pump have refined the genre to near perfection, and until we see some radical changes to the RTS formula you’ll be hard pressed to find a better title.A deep, hard strategy game that offers tons in the way of customization and length.

First let me sy that I got this for a steal on sale, so can't complain too much, but

Graphics are ok (cir 2005 style), blocky 3D but effective enough
Typical RTS Gameplay, not much reasource management, just drill for Oil -> Money, focus on combat and base bulding

However, overall, this is a pretty flawed game, based on what I played at least (US campaign, then got bored).

Its tough even on normal difficulty, odds are often stacked against you, and silly restrictions (in single player campaign) such as this 1 unit must survive, and no repair capability offered, even between levels!!!?

Enemy AI is pretty simple, but effective enough... units will stay where they are, didn't see a lit of patrolling, and then they swarm as soon as you attack. Own team AI is where most of the problems are... can only set 3 basic tactics per unit/group... chase 'em, stand still, or stay within area. Even on stay within, you units often roam into areas they shouldn't and get picked off easy. Wost part is the route finding... the game relies on building many units and swarming when you outnumber the enemy... often groups of 15-20 units per group. But the pathfinding is bad. often the first 3 or 4 units head in the right direction, and the ones behind bump intoi them and then head off in another direction for an alternate, often with disasterous effects.

Base building is pretty noddy too. no sign of upgrades for most buildings, just build one to access a certain list of units and then forget it. Having to manage power was a nice touch (each gen can power two nearby buildings) which gives some tactical options of blacking-out your enemy buildings... but most of the time you'll get mashed before you get near ur enemies gens.

All in all this seems a dissapointing basic RTS cir 2000... if you want a very cheap nostagic RTS shot then grab it on sale, if not avoid, there are much better ones out there.

It's during the Cold War... Oil are dangerously low... America finding ways to still have vehicles running. Russian generals eager to restore the Soviet Union. And Iraq doesn't care about oil... The great powers declared... World War 3...

I can't believe I wasted money on this. It brings back all the things you forgot old games had problems with - path finding, AI, connecting to another person on LAN and also launching the game in the first place. An old game and not worth it!
