Informace o hře

The highly anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed game Act of War: Direct Action picks up where the techno-thriller left off. On the eve of the U.S. Presidential elections, simultaneous terrorist attacks hit both candidates. Clues point to corrupt elements within the U.S. military, but also to the shadowy organization known as the Consortium.
You take on the role of U.S. Army Brigadier General Jason Richter, a career soldier and former commander of the 1st Special Forces (Delta Force) who has been given control of an elite new anti-terrorist unit: Task Force TALON. From massive enemy assaults to delicate hostage extractions, from classified spy missions to search-and-destroy onslaughts, Task Force TALON is deployed to engage the enemy in hotspots around the globe. Using near-future weaponry, Richter's men will be pushed to their mental and physical limits to contain a powerful unpredictable enemy bent on toppling the governments of the world.

Act of War is one of the finest Real-Time-Strategy games in gaming history. Its graphics are superb even by modern standards, and the realistic US Army faction makes Act of War what many gamers wished CnC:Generals had been. The game plays very similarly to Generals, but lacks any generals themselves to add flavor to the skirmishes. The units don't have anything witty or neccessarily interesting to say; they instead respond in ways that you'd expect their real-life counterparts to respond. If you're a fan of RTS but want to play in a world which looks and sounds authentic as opposed to the sci-fi or cartoon representation of other RTS games, then AoW is exactly what you're after.

Despite its age, it works on modern machines, including Windows 10 and even NVIDIA mobile series graphics cards, which are notorious for their legacy incompatibility. If you're like me and more interested in playing skirmishes than the campaign, then Act of War: Direct Action is uneccesary because Act of War: High Treason is a standalone expansion pack which includes the full game. The only thing that DA has which HT doesn't is the DA campaign.

AoW is an amazing game, quite possibly the best RTS yet. It's a steal at three bucks. Buy it, play it, love it.

This follows the orginal Act of War and is one of those RTS's that should be in your collection.
Excellent graphics considering it's over 10 years old and it easy to pick up and grasp without some of those complex options in some other RTS games.
If you like Dune and Command and Conquer it's a game your going to like.

So... these times are very poor for RTS strategies. Since Starcarft 2 there are not new clean RTS at all.

ACT of WAR: High Treason is exactly that good game when are you looking for RTS.Simple but greatly done. Deatiled but easy to master.Build, train, move, attack... on ground, air, sea... simply old school RTS.

PROS:
3 very different sides of conflict, each one with total unique units
fights of soldiers inside the buildings
still very good detailed graphic
a lot of units (even ships, jets, submarines + special mercenary units)
good sources balances + POW
a lot of maps
AI is a good partner / enemy even in LAN battles

CONS:
superweapons; they are annoying because it ruins strategy preparations
(but the good thing is that player have to pay for every use of superweapon)

Very fun game, played this on disk for years and always enjoyed it. Campaign was much more difficult compared to Direct Action and seems a little lacking in satisfaction with voice actors and live action cutscenes but the game makes up for it in new and improved units and mechanics. My one problem with this game is that multiplayer online does not work. I looked forward to playing with my friends online but was disappointed when I couldn't. Overall a very aesthetically pleasing game and a very fun time to strategize and wage war on. Well worth it as long as it is not bought for online gameplay.

Act of War: High Treason is a strategy game develped by Eugen Systems. High Treason is an expansion pack to Act of War: Direct Action. The game is set three years following the events of the first game. To avoid spoilers, the whole gist of the first game is that a mega-rich fringe organisation invades America and attempts to take over the world. This game expands on the enemy faction The Consortium from the first game. However, this game involves the U.S. Army and treason from some top ranking major generals. I will note that I will compare everything to the first game as it is a sequel and thus a benchmark.

To begin, this game is great. The campaign so far has greater mission variety including stealth missions, which was a major hit, is more difficult, and is more engaging and intense compared to the first game. The story has had twists and turns including the U.S. Army, as noted above, and the reinvolvement of the Consortium. These twists make the game more exciting and fun for the player. And as said for the first game, the story becomes richer and more exciting as it progresses.

I will now summarise the rest in smaller points before pointing out the negatives of the game. The gameplay is fairly similar to the first. It has base-building and a typical birds eye view RTS game. So in other words, its a good combination. The negatives with gameplay is the healing and repairing units have cooldowns on when to heal/repair your units. This makes the game more difficult, which can be a nuisence during the course of a mission. This means that repairing and healing units are sort of useless as the enemy will keep attacking and you will have cooldowns to repair/heal your units before an attack.

The UI, like the last game, is clean, slick and simple. I like it as everything is easy to access and there is not a clutter of options on the main screen when playing the game. There is still no steam overlay, but there is borderless windows so you do not have to quit the game to do other things on the computer such as using the internet. The game has 1920x1080 resolution, a major stepup from the previous game.

Now onto the negatives that will explain my negative review of the game. There are enormous amounts of bugs and technical issues that plague this game. The game crashes very frequently, resulting in frustration and an unplayable experience due to me having to constantly restart the game. To add insult to injury, there are very long loading times of missions and save games, meaning you are literally stuck on the loading screen more than the actual mission. It is quite strange as I had played five hours without issue and then it hits the Caribbean missions and these issues arise, effectively halting my playthrough of the campaign. I am thinking if it is this specific section of campaign that negatively affects the game. Regardless, these issues mean I cannot continue the campaign, resulting in a waste of time. Also, there are several other bugs including sound issues, which one time the sound engine crashed, and mission completion freezes.

Overall, I was really liking this game and enjoying the campaign. However, the issues that plagued the game have significantly impacted the game. Therefore, I have to not recommend this game from my personal experience on it. I will attempt to continue the game in the future and hopefully it will be stable. Following that, I will update this review. However, at this point in time, I cannot. The game is strong in most aspects though, so its unfortunate there are glitches. 3/10.

EDIT x1: I will note also that whilst I personally do not recommend the game due to the techncial issues, it is up to you to purchase the game for $2.99. Keep in mind my negatives on the game as if they are the same for yourself you can refund the game. As I did mention, the game's story is great and intense, so if you do buy it, hopefully there are no technical issues.

If you played Act of War: Direct Action, prepare for moderate fun with some disappointment. Off the bat, this feels like a forced product of the first game, which I thought was great. There are very few new features/units/mechanics but there are some. The life-action cutscenes, which gave it the large-production feel in the first game, have been cut from this game and been replaced by poorly-rendered in-game graphics. All the mechanics, interface, and core structure of the game is the same as the first so there is no learning curve. If I bought this long ago when it first came out for more than $5-10, I would be sorely disappointed. However, as a fan of the first, I will play this for the sake of playing it. I would only recommend this to players who liked the first and aren't expecting anything new or grand.

Single player review: As a really big fan of RTS games I was very disappointed with this expansion. It's ridden with bugs and glitches, complete with syntax errors in unit descriptions, I've actually played betas very much more playable than this. While the original AoW Direct Action has some issues it is a fantastic game - this expansion looks as if it was not made by the same team. Due to either glitches or horrible mission scripting you often end up having to load save games every minute which isn't my idea of fun. Especially when, due to a bug, what is usually very long loading time sometimes grows up to 5 minutes per load (!) on a very high end machine. I'm 6 hours into this game, mostly reloading and restarting missions. I have just as low opinion on story execution, voice acting and missions design, while they made me chuckle a couple of times (due to absurdly low quality of it) they're completely devoid of any tactical challenge. I've seen unfinished Indie games better executed than this.

I recommend this to anyone who can play and enjoy Act of War: Direct Action. (Meaning it suffers from the same compatibility issues for anyone running an OS newer than Windows XP).

Ignoring this fatal flaw the product is good. The campaign is meater and much more challenging than in the original game, though the plot lacks the cinematics of the first game and ends up leaving several loose ends untied. The new content, including naval units is also quite good and fun to play around with.

Unfortunately the game retains some problems - the skirmish mode AI is poor and runs out of resources, and naval units are unavailable outside of multiplayer due to the AI having never been programmed to use them. While there is an unoffical patch known as the "AI Special Force" mod which greatly improves the AI and adds support for naval skirmishes, there were glitches that resulted - such as extremely long loading times (upwards of 15 minutes) and an audio bug in naval battles which causes the game's sound to start looping repeatedly.

As a standalone product I can recommend this for the additional content and much improved campaign over the original, but as a Steam purchase I can't recommend this except to Windows XP users due to the incompatibility with modern OSs, and ridiculous amount of system tinkering required just to get this game playable on newer systems.

I think it is one of the best RTS games ever made and with few tweeks could be the best RTS game. First thing that I liked about the game was realistic graphics. Smoke, flames, units done beautifully camera is shaking from explotions. While it is a bit outdated still looks nice. I was also inpressed with building capturing - fighting on roof mechanics. This is one of those rare RTS games where soldiers can actually clime on the roof tops and snipers can take out soldiers standing close to windows as well as soldiers with assault rifless can actually try and take the building from the inside. Naval battle is another amazing thing about Act of War HT, where ships has multiple tipes of weaponary can carry units as well as aircraft. Unfortunately naval combat is not supported in skirmish games, only in campaing and actual multiplayer games. The main story of the game is interesting, probabaly the most interesting story of all RTS I've ever palyed, however the campaing is challenging. On down side this game has compatability issues. I don't believe internet games servers still works properly (if at all) and when playing LAN game my computer tends to freeze at the bebinning of the loading screen for enough time for other games to assume it's dead. If loads normally after some time, but I am kicked by then. I hope, that's will be fixed soon.

Sorry for my poor English. I hope I've been helpfull.

+ Good graphics.
+ Challenging AI.
+ No redundant units.
+ Does not require the original Direct Action to play.

- Campaign not as good as Direct Action.
- Online multiplayer requires 3rd-party software (Hamachi or GameRanger)
- AI does not support all game modes.

The Good
We'll start with the graphics: very good considering this game came out in 2006. The stock maps just as detailed as Direct Action, but with far more variety - Aside from the usual desert and urban maps, you can now play on more forest and jungle theatres.

Infantry play a prominent role right up until the late game. Act of War focuses less on tank rushing and requires the player to think a bit more. Well placed infantry, for example, can ambush a tank convoy from trees/tall grass and gain a x2 damage bonus. Likewise, artillery could be used to clear out forests and potential ambush zones. It's nice to play an RTS where infantry are more than just cannon fodder.

There are some very interesting game mechanics here too. While oil is your main source of income, it is still a finite resource and will run dry eventually. You can take and hold banks to acquire funds, or you can even take wounded enemies as hostages for ransom.

The expansion also adds naval warfare, which actually works rather well once you get the knack for it. Each faction has it's own unique variety of ships with different play styles.

Another interesting mechanic introduced to High Treason is the addition of mercenary units. These are expensive, but very effective specialist units that excel in what they do. For example, you can hire a specialist team of medics to provide a heal radius around wounded infantry - or call in the Rawhide artillery team and level an enemy base with rockets from afar.

The Bad
The AI does not work in naval warfare, which means you're up against humans whether you like it or not. Only a minor complaint, but sometimes it's nice to practice against the AI and hone your skills.

The campaign is brutally hard compared to Direct Action. Some veteran players might be okay with the tougher AI, but I personally struggled. Also the lack of live-action cut-scenes was also a disappointment.

The Ugly
Compatibility issues lie with Windows Vista, Win7 and Win8. There is a Win7 compatibility patch on ModDB which works perfectly - you can get it here

Final Thoughts
Despite the initial compatibility issues, this game has proven to be a very underrated RTS. It's what C&C Generals should have been.

VERDICT: Highly recommended.

In my honest opinion, this is the best base building, old school rts you can get on steam. I've played quite a bit of C&C including tiberium wars, which for a while was my favorite for their variety of units and awesome fighter jet dogfights. Act of War has a very large variety of maps, from vacant cities and towns to open fields and sandy plains. I still haven't played on every map yet. The factions are really awesome and diverse, for example, Task force talon has simple base building and units that are masters at adapting to any situation, units can be further upgraded for unleashing hell on who ever you place the attack order on, while the US army (or murica) have to rely on power sources for their buildings and their units mainly excell in only a few fields having different types of units to deal with what ever the threat may be, infantry, armored or air.

And they recently patched the game so it works for windows 8, this game is a MUST buy for any rts gamer 10/10

The sequal to Act of War Direct Action, I bought the DVD version back in 2006. so even Steam registered me only played less than an hour, I believe I can still write a fair review.

first of all, you do not need to have AoW: DA installed to play. however

Act of War: High Treason follows the TFT commander Jason Richter to discover and prevent a political scheme. Fight against the old enemy of Consortium and on few instances, the US military.

This sequal carries on the innovative system from AoW DA, where wounded infantry and downed pilot become part of the economy syetm in the game. It comes with new units and new campaign. the new units adds several tactical options for each factions. making it more interesting to play. However the missions are not as well designed as those in Direct Action: some comes with odd restriction and conditions, making it just too difficult to beat. New units includes Naval units, but only available in certian mission and some multiplayer maps.

AoW: HT adds Mercenary system, where carefully deployed Mercenaries can turn the tide of the battle. Be warned, it cost a lot to deploy mercenaries so use it wisely.

Gone are the good Live action cutscene, replaced with CG. I do not believe this was voiced by original actor either. the charactor in this is more playful and the charactors in Direct Action are more collected, focused and let's say, "no nonsense".

One improvement over Direct Action is: HT supports widescreen, 16:9 resolution. Keep in mind, this is after all a 2005/2006 game so don't expect to have top notch graphics from modern game engine. However it is still a fun game to play.

When it first launched on Steam, like Direct action, it suffered from memory addressing issue, but I believe it is now fixed. as I am able to play it with windows 8.1, i7 processor and 12GB of ram without any modification.

After a much needed update, this game finally works on modern operating systems. There are still some glitches (like I had to verify my files and lost my saves a few times, so be careful) but I managed to finish the game across both Windows 8.1 x64 and Windows 10 x64.

This is a challenging RTS, although I am admittedly not the best strategy player around. Decent graphics, pretty decent storyline, graphics hold up well too.

Grab this one on sale if you can, along with the first game.

Once you deal with the whole exceeds 2gbs of ram ordeal, its one of the best rts' i've played. It runs very smoothly and each faction is very unique yet very simple to use. There's cool mechanics like hiding in trees and proning to become hidden. It's like a prettier, more detailed version of command and conquer generals....but better. That's saying alot.

Act of war: High Treason.
Will probely never be better than the orginal Command and Conquer: generals and Zero hour those 2 are my all time favorite. But High Treason for sure is my number 3 because i remember when this came out back in the days, the awesome graphics, the massive fire fights it had, in general all what a RTS needs today.

But let me point out some Pros and cons for this great title.

Pros:
- Extremely good graphics compared to it's time and in generals RTS games. (still has better graphics than many modern trs games)
- The possibility to make huge firefights.
- Building your own bases and launch huge attacks on the enemy
- Naval warfare both in multiplayer, singleplayer (require the Special force mod which allows you to build ships while still having ground forces and buildnings, dont use the Naval invarders as that only allow you 2 play on few maps and with ships only, in the special forces you can control both ground and sea at the same time)
- and extremely balanced air power and super weapons.
- you can capture enemy soldiers it has never been funnier.
- nice phsysics and water simulation.

Cons:
- With out mods the Ai can be a bit easy to handle.
- needs more huge maps like the map called: storm.
- Gamespy dont exist anymore, so no multiplayer (not Atari's fault ofcouse)
- Takes really long time to load a skirmish map (dont know if that is only me?)

But this game will be worth buying as you wont regret it, it is looking good, the sounds VFX is good really giving you this military feeling, and on G 2 play you can buy this game for 2 Euro so pick it up there if you want to spare money, but 9,99 Euro is also not bad for such a great classic.

***EDIT***
can see the developers changed the price of the game after they saw my review, so they changed it from 9.99 to 2.99 which is an really good price for an old great game, that has lost multiplayer function, but still is really great on singleplayer.
So thank you Devs, for reading my review, i have always been a huge fan of the act war serie.

Finally seems to be stable after all these years. A great RTS with a great air strike system.

A fix on the Steam Froums finally allows this game to work. It's basically an improved Command and Conquer Generals, with an intricate infantry building garrisoning system, including the ability to breach enemy held buildings WHY THE ♥♥♥♥ HAS NO ONE ELSE DONE THIS AGAIN? It also works on Airstrikes like World In Conflict, except you can have your planes shoot down other planes trying to strike.The game itself is pretty solid, you can't play with naval units with AI though, which sux. Pick it up during a steam sale, it's definitely worth the $5.

I recommend this to anyone who can play and enjoy Act of War: Direct Action. (Meaning it suffers from the same compatibility issues for anyone running an OS newer than Windows XP).

Ignoring this fatal flaw the product is good. The campaign is meater and much more challenging than in the original game, though the plot lacks the cinematics of the first game and ends up leaving several loose ends untied. The new content, including naval units is also quite good and fun to play around with.

Unfortunately the game retains some problems - the skirmish mode AI is poor and runs out of resources, and naval units are unavailable outside of multiplayer due to the AI having never been programmed to use them. While there is an unoffical patch known as the "AI Special Force" mod which greatly improves the AI and adds support for naval skirmishes, there were glitches that resulted - such as extremely long loading times (upwards of 15 minutes) and an audio bug in naval battles which causes the game's sound to start looping repeatedly.

As a standalone product I can recommend this for the additional content and much improved campaign over the original, but as a Steam purchase I can't recommend this except to Windows XP users due to the incompatibility with modern OSs, and ridiculous amount of system tinkering required just to get this game playable on newer systems.

Single player review: As a really big fan of RTS games I was very disappointed with this expansion. It's ridden with bugs and glitches, complete with syntax errors in unit descriptions, I've actually played betas very much more playable than this. While the original AoW Direct Action has some issues it is a fantastic game - this expansion looks as if it was not made by the same team. Due to either glitches or horrible mission scripting you often end up having to load save games every minute which isn't my idea of fun. Especially when, due to a bug, what is usually very long loading time sometimes grows up to 5 minutes per load (!) on a very high end machine. I'm 6 hours into this game, mostly reloading and restarting missions. I have just as low opinion on story execution, voice acting and missions design, while they made me chuckle a couple of times (due to absurdly low quality of it) they're completely devoid of any tactical challenge. I've seen unfinished Indie games better executed than this.

Act of War: High Treason is a fairly good expansion to the original Act of War: Direct Action. The game play feels different with the incorporation of a few espionage and techno-thriller missions. Since this is an expansion, expect the graphics to be the same if not better than Direct Action. The explosion animations/graphics are also very satisfying. The only gripe I have with this game is that some missions are obscenely hard. Like super meat boy level 200+ hard, it’s nothing a veteran RTS player can’t handle, but if you’re new to RTS you will probably cry from the difficulty. Also be warned this game takes up a lot of HDD space for a 4 year old game. It is about 8 gigabytes in size.
