Über dieses Spiel

Der langersehnte Nachfolger des hochgefeierten Spiels - Act of War: Direct Action macht dort weiter, wo der Techno-Thriller aufhörte. Am Abend der U.S. Präsidentschaftswahlen greifen gleichzeitig mehrere Terroristen beide Kandidaten an. Hinweise deuten auf eine Verwicklung korrupter Elemente des U.S. Militärs in die Anschläge, jedoch führt die Spur auch zu einer schattenhaften Organisation bekannt als das Konsortium.
Sie übernehmen die Rolle des U.S. Army Brigade Generals Jason Richter, Karrieresoldat und ehemaliger Kommandant der 1. Spezialeinheit (Delta Force), der die Verantwortung über eine neue Elite-Anti-Terroreinheit übernommen hat: Task Force TALON. Von massiven feindlichen Angriffen bis hin zu delikaten Geiselbefreiungen, von geheimen Spionageaktionen bis hin zu gezielten Spezialangriffen steht die 'Task Force TALON' bereit den Feind in Schach zu halten und um die ganze Welt zu verfolgen. Mit Zukunftstechnologie und neuen Waffen werden Richter und seine Männer bis zum äussersten der geistigen und körperlichen Grenzen getrieben, um den unberechenbaren Feinden Einhalt zu gebieten, die die Regierungen der Welt in Chaos und Anarchie stürzen wollen.

It is an OK game but don't play the campaign the naval portion is broken since firing the tomahawk missile from the destroyer breaks the audio and will eventually crash the game and also prevent you from, completeing the level. Also sections of the campaign seem almost impossible without using cheats even on easy. Otherwise its an OK game but definitely not an improvement over Direct Action or even nearly as good. Direct Action has a vastly better quality of the campaign. Seems like Eugen was phoning it in on this one.

I must concur with everybody claiming that it is like Command and Conquer : Generals/Generals Zero Hour. Minus the selection of several generals for each faction to change it up. In a way it feels like it plays the same. Unhampered by restrictions where you can place your structures and the interesting mechanics like ambushing and WMD balance. Runs fine on my Windows 10 x64. Price tag is fantastic. I cannot believe I didn't see this game until 2016.
And I'd imagine it runs just fine on any computer because of the graphics.
Just be sure to bring your third-party system like Hamachi/GameRanger/Etc if you want to play Multiplayer with friends since GameSpy is gone. I can see myself playing this in the future just for the feeling of Generals it gives me.

If you liked C&C Generals, but:
- It doesn't work on your PC anymore
- You cba to go and get the disk / can't find it / it's so old it's scratched to s***.
- You don't want to buy it electronically on Origin
- You don't want to install Origin
- You don't want to give Origin your monies
- You don't like EA / Origin
- EA / Origin

Then buy this instead. Very similar, a few years newer, and more realistic.

Great game. Its a standlone sequel to Direct Action, the Naval part does get challenging. Act of War is very similar to Command & Conquer Generals.

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.

+ 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.

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.

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.
