Actual Armies. Actual Weapons. Actual Political Issues.

World War III - Black Gold takes the player to the near future. The political crisis has been going on for months, leading to worldwide turmoil. A secret conference of the UN Central Geological Commission reveals that worldwide oil reserves have reached dangerously low levels: Oil reserves will run out within 8-10 years. This proves too short for even the most highly industrialized countries to switch their economies to alternative energy sources. Soon, mass protests erupt all over the world, effectively shutting down the global economy. The Great Powers have declared WW III...

I owned (and still do own) this game on CD. Looked for months to find a copy of it, and when I finally did, circa 2005 me was in gaming heaven. Today, this game doesn't hold up nearly as well but is still fun for it's low price. Works on Windows 8.1.

A game from a different era, it's quite enjoyable to remember how games were played!

I highly reccomend this for a player who knows the type of game they are buying, this isn't going to be anything like starcraft 2.

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.

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.)

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.

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,

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.
