A RTS game with almost realism feel will force even the veteran strategist to rethink their move; because, here it doesn't take 20 shots with a tank to kill 1 soldier no, now it takes 1 shot to kill 5 men. This game was built before its time so the graphics are not the prettiest but still good enough to get a closes comparison to C&C Generals, and with the destructive environment you will almost think its Battlefield 4. All factions are balanced with there own pros an cons Vs. the other factions so there is no top advantage of taking 1 faction over the other, but on that note I do recommend taking the group you can handle better than the others, but try the others if you don't like them then learn what they can do.

Now the best part about this game is it's now available for Windows 7, Windows 8 and 8.1 and giving the time it was created this game should run fine enough on low end PCs.

7.5/10 $10.99 CAN was hoping for $5 but still worth it.

Act of war direct action is one of the brilliant strategy game ever made for me.Probably I must have played this more than 100 hours at non-steam version when it was first released.It's scenario was inspired from Dale Brown's stories (Who is well known military novel author like Tom Clancy).If you like Tom clancy style scenarios or series like 24,homeland etc you will probably like this game.

AoW:DA also looks similar C&C titles,building base,gathering petrol resources and producing units to crush enemy.Cutscenes is one of the best part of AoW.Which made with real actors.On missions a little video screen appears on the corner and begins to inform you about mission and shows news just like C&C.You can capture wounded enemy soldiers as a prisoner and sell it.

Game changing shape according to missions.Sometimes you control small tactical units to eliminate enemy forces or sometimes building bases and producing mass armies.

As far as I read around, some guys complain about that game doesn't work on windows 7 64 bit and more than 2 GB ram.I run windows 7 64 bit home premium and have 8 GB ram,I haven't experienced any problem with game.I just installed and hit the play button it launched.
Edit:A patch has been released for game to run on win7 and 8.1

+Good scenario
+excellent graphics (compare 2005's titles not todays)
+C&C style videos
+Music
+No unit limitations
+tactical units
+never bored (it depends on you of course :) )

-doesn't have widescreen support.(there is a mod on moddb which adds widecreen res. )

As a result 10/10. Now I can't wait for Act of Aggression.

A very well written and playable game which keeps you engaged and moving along even if you only intended to play one mission as you will find it too easy and tempting to not quit after just a mission of the campaign. Be warned, for Windows 7 and 8, excluding 8.1, it requires some research and going through a few hoops to get it running, but well worth the effort.

Great RTS, that was overshadowed by C&C generals. This game does not use hit points for its units, but uses real world scenerios. For example, a tank will withstand rifle fire all day. But one shot with a helfire missile and it is destroyed. Most RTS would have the missile do 10 out of 15 damage but instead the missile will do its job. That is the basics. The campaign is great and skirmeshes are endless. The only problem is it is a pain to get to work on new computers. Which is a shame because it uses all real world models on all the units, and it still looks pretty good.

I liked this game. It was fun to play and they had some interesting weapons. For example there was a tank that can send out an exploding drone. I like the resource system being a simple system of oil or money. I also liked the different aircraft. Some where tactical while some where strategic. The also did a good job of using stealth for reccon. I often don't play RTS games because I am a TBS fan and RTS games are sometimes to quick for me. At the easy setting the pace was nice and enjoyable and I didn't feel rushed.

It's like Command and Conquer Generals but done correctly. Really fun with a great sound track.

Game is well worth the $10 for any RTS fan. Played Campaign only.

CONS:
Music is very generic and bland.
Can't rotate building placement.
Story/cutscense are corny/cheesy, not bad just cheesy. (could almost follow it on mute)
No higher resolution or 16:9 support.
64-bit OS systems have to set their virtual memory (total including VRAM) to just under 3gb to run.

PROS:
Has a pretty nice array of weapons to use, and the campaign is nicely paced.
Graphics are pretty good especially for the time it was released.
Base building, air support, tactical insertions the game is done pretty well.
The game runs pretty well (despite having to virtually chop off most of my RAM)
The sound effects in the game (including voice over quality) were all pretty good.
Upgrades were fun to work towards and unlock.
Has some nice use of units not used in many RTS games.
Its a very well rounded Modern RTS.

I will be getting the sequel to it real soon.
Need a slightly more recent one with Co-op LAN/online

You're probably wondering why I'm recommending a game I spend so little time on right? Well, I played this game when it was in retails and it was one of the greatest RTS game I have ever played. Seriously, it is basically what I wanted from C&C generals, it was that bloody damn good.

It's a suprisingly good, high value game. Though admittedly, it can get rather dry at times.

Act of War: Direct Action is a very solid gaming package. Units seem to be well balanced, combat is fun and made pretty interesting by dense city sections, and the visuals should keep anybody more than satisfied. The story is pretty bad but this is an RTS not an rpg, the acting from the various cut scene actors were actually ♥♥♥♥. Third graders would’ve performed better. If it wasn't for the horrible acting and wonkiness of plot this would have been a gorgeously presented game. Effects are decent the whole way through, but the environments are really where Act of War has a leg up on all others. Sadly multiplayer is dead, so this game now becomes a buy only if cheap game.

Does NOT run on x64 properly, has issues with more than 2Gb RAM. Is a good game though if you're still running an old OS on a low-end PC.

Played the hell out of this on Windows XP pre-Steam, but doesn't work on Windows 7 which really sux because it's a really good game. Tried the workaround they have in the forums. Still doesn't work right.

Go ahead and buy this game if:
1) You love looking at a big black screen
2) You love watching your pc feeze
3) You love looking at your desktop and wondering "What he hell....

Well, it would be a wonderful game... If it would start. I really didn't expect to have to put my machine in single-core, 2gb of RAM mode just to get this thing running. Should really be in the description that you have to mess with your OS's memory settings to get this to work.
