This game is a gem under mud.
At first glance I thought it's just low class game but I wrong about it. I have to admit that this game is fun. It's like Red Alert but require more strategies and tactics. Do not underestimate low price game.

I think that Warfare is the best creation of GFI. Unfortunately, not all the ideas were implemented, but for me it is still a pleasure to play.
Among the few drawbacks I would note the need for old version of PhysX and overextendness of some missions.

Underrated little gem of a RTS/ Tactics Game.

Like Military Real Time Tactical but sick of fighting WWII for the 50th time? Good modern warfare RTTs like World in Conflict/ Wargame only happen every few years so if you like those games check this out.

A good compromise between realism and fun. Unit promotion system and basic economy system to reward keeping units alive for multiple mission. Pre / Post mission unit management similar to a very simplified Theatre of War interface but without the frusturating soldier by soldier search through a platoon for a good gunner or driver.

Graphics on par with Command and Conquer Generals, which was good for the time. A lot more unit and ammo options for individual units but that is to be expected in a good Tatical Game. Unit salvage a good element that adds to the gameplay. Soundtrack good for the budget as well.

I have heard Nvidia graphics users have had problems but this game is old enough to run fine on the CPU graphics amd and intel have.

Real shame there is no demo for this game as most would be understandably reluctant to retail purchase a game from an unknown franchsise and developer that was under the radar from the day it was released. I might humbly suggest a certain bundle website.

Doesn't work with latest version of PhysX drivers. Need to downgrade in order to play. Too much effort.

One of the best RTS Strategy games set in modern times.
The game can be quite hard on the Normal difficulty, but only when you make mistakes. Rush in all your forces into an enemy encampment for example! Then you will find it hard to complete certain missions. Though taking it easy, planning your plan of attack.
Also like others have said you can spend hours on it and it is true so take your time and enjoy it.

This is a must have game for RTS fans and I do recommend it.

"Saudi Arabia, one of the world's leading oil suppliers and a key U.S. ally, has been taken over by a highly organized group of radical terrorists. The government is in a state of collapse and turmoil and you have been chosen to lead the United States' armed forces to restore control."

LOL the saudi banks fund or channel money to most of the terrorists, or at least the ones that the US and Russia don't .. so I find the premis a bit silly.

But lets give it a go ... 20 min later I have to tap out.


Pro:
It's not a bad military strategy game for a technical point of view
Low system specs needed
At least it's not yet another WW1/2 RTS game
For a russian game it doesn't suck ... seriously most of their games really really SUCK. So +1 GFI Russia!

Con:
Driver issues
Stupid storyline
The voice acting is ... I'm not even going there
It's RTS and I am a turn based fan. I dislike RT to say the least
There are other games in this genre that are just better at what they do.
$20? Ummmmmmmm, seriously? This is a $5 game unless you NEED another RTS.

Overall:
Not bad, just not good. If you can get this cheap buy it. Seriosuly if your into RTS you should be able to get $10+ worth of fun out of it. If your into strategy games wait till it's $5 or less (better yet free in a bundle).

So the tough part ... thumbs up or down.


Thumbs up ... if you can get it cheap. Part of this is a thumbs up for GFI, a russian game company that doesn't make complete ♥♥♥♥♥ should be supported.

This is game is fantastic! Besides the ♥♥♥♥♥♥ acting..."King of Saudia Arabia"? Great research team. Anwyay, This game is wonderful for 2009! The graphics are nearly up to par with the modern day Xbox One, your troops will follow orders, you can mount vehicles, storyline, formations, ect...I could listen almost 10,000 wonderful things about this game! Why would I? It's $20.00! Purchase it now! :D

The game won't run at all unless you manually download and overwrite your PhysX drivers with old Legacy ones; otherwise it instantly crashes (but at least it tells you the problem). If you are looking for an RTS game to play without a hassle I recommend to keep looking.

Warfare is a mediocre combat game that's hopelessly incorrect politically and otherwise. The plot opens with a series of terrorist attacks against Saudi oil wells (in reality, saudi oil ensures the wealth of S.A. and there are links between the oil tycoons and terrorist groups, so they're cutting themselves off from their money supply) which are funded by the Taliban. The Americans intervene, stationing troops in Saudi Arabia, while a popular revolt (including the Saudi Generals) tries to take over. The King (arrogant, ignorant, dodgy accent) and his advisors (simpering, flattering, also dodgy accent) flee while the American forces rush in to save the day.

One of the most difficult RTS games I have ever played. Still can't complete it. Goes in depth, good detail. Just really difficult.

Some decent ideas, but badly optimized and lacks basic gamemodes for this genre.
