4/10. Buyed by 0.50. It have's a nice concept but Campaing Mode is easy, boring and the story is ridiculous. I dont care too much for graphics, but if i've had to rate it, I would say that it's terrible. Free mode might be intersting to someone who enjoys the game, but doens't even have an Online mode, and "Play by Mail" is a failure as nobody plays the game. I would not recommend it to anyone and the game dont worth the price, if you have a 90% off, then you should give a try.

This game seemed to be interesting, but sadly failed on so many levels. Having been compared to Advance Wars, I was expecting a lot more out of the game than it gave me.

The plot was uninspiring, the characters at least as much. The art, animations and unit design also leads much to be desired. Complemented with bugs, and a lack of other Advance Wars features mean that even Hot Seat and Editing fail to make this enjoyable and engaging.

Much regret on my part for buying this game...

I got this game for 99 cents as a curiosity, but was very dissapointed. I'd say the biggest problem I have with the game is that it is customized for slower computers so I can't play it on my computer. Every turn feels like I'm draggng my feet through a hurricane that's pushing me backward slowing my pace to a crawl. As far as the gameplay goes, overall its not really too bad, but it is just a mediocre rts game that may have had a lot of potential if it had better game mechanics. My recomendation is not to buy this game, If its 99 cents and your curious and have some money to waste check it out, as its not atrocious just sub par and plauged by that awful issue that the game seems to move as slow as humanly possible.

this game isnt what i thought it would be. honestly, first thing i noticed was that it was BORING AS ♥♥♥♥!! the mechanics for the game is crap and it takes way, WAY, too long to do anything as well. No mulitiplayer like it says it has. (False advertisement). If i could get a refund for this game, I would definetly take it because this game is that bad.

I paid $0.50 for this game and I think that is all I would have paid. I do not recomend this game unless it is 50 cents. The game isn't as good as it seems just go and buy the newest age of empires and you should be happy. The game is the same type of game as civilation or age of empires.

This is by far one of the worst games I have ever played. It was fifty cents when I bought it and I still don't think it's worth it. Please do not waste any money on it. I play on a laptop that isn't meant for gaming and I can still play Civ 5 and a lot of other recently made video games, but this game is unplayable. The gameplay is terrible. The context is really stupid and it's trying to be a ripoff/remake of Advance Wars, but instead of wasting 50 cents - 5 dollars on this junk, just get a GBA or NDS emulator and get an Advance Wars rom. Don't disregard this because of my playtime it doesn't take that long to realize that this is a pile of ♥♥♥♥ put into a game.

Heyo, if you are considering buying this game, DON'T BUY IT. It's an absolute piece of trash. The game starts out with this long, boring "cinematic". And here, I'm using the term "cinematic" loosely, since this is hardly animated. Of course, that doesn't make it bad, other games have done this before. Anyways, the "cinematic" drags on for about 5 minutes, then they let you into the tutorial. The tutorial showed me just how bad of a game this is. I was barely following the dialouge, so that may have had a part in it, but I had no idea what to do. I'd expect a game to tell the player how to do this and that IN the tutorial. But since they haven't, the game was unplayable for me. Overall, this game would be -10/10.

The sole reason I bought this game was to inflate my steam games total number and basically inflate my e-balls (Internet balls) and honestly now the game just haunts my steam library like a desperate orphan trying to find his birth parents in a busy chinese town.

This game actually features multiplayer that is called "Play by email" ♥♥♥♥ ME I didnt know we were still living in 2005 if I wanted to play chess with someone I'd go to their ♥♥♥♥ing house and play it.

1/10 - This game is the epitome of a mouldy cheese baguette.

Maybe I should have played more this game. Maybe 40 minutes isn't enough to judge a game. But the fact is: "Future Wars" is a piece of ♥♥♥♥! The people who made this game should disown this game for the rest of their lives. The camera angle is a piece of ♥♥♥♥, the movements are a piece of ♥♥♥♥, the story seems to be a piece of ♥♥♥♥, the art seems that came from Nickelodeon. To summarize: everything is a crap in this game and everything is boring in this game.

On one hand I'm relieved to have paid just R$0,89 is this ♥♥♥♥, on the other hand it hurts to think that games like "Serena" or "You Have to Win this Game" are way better than "Future Wars" and are free.

Holy crap...

I love turn-based strategy, but this game is absolutely terrrible. The interface is abysmal (all clicking...only one hotkey). I thought for sure that this game would be good or at least passable, but omfg I was wrong. Honestly, I bought it for a buck, and I still wish I could return it, just so the devs don't get their cut for a game like this.

I read the reviews and thought I would give it a chance...don't make the same mistake I did.
