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: 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.

워게임을 개발한 유겐의 대표적인 고전 RTS인 액트 오브 워입니다.

액트 오브 워 시리즈는 C&C 제너럴 제로아워와 흡사한 점이 많으면서도 차별화를 두어 꽤 좋은 평가를 받았고 실제로도 훌륭한 RTS 게임입니다만, 안타깝게도 캠폐인 자체의 시나리오는 '이 세상엔 미국뿐이고 미국 이외의 나라는 쩌리인데 여튼 미국 좀 짱인듯' 이란 인식이 전반적으로 깔려 있는 전형적인 할리우드식 기승미뽕 테크노 스릴러이기 때문에 이 부분에 있어서는 각별한 주의를 요합니다, 그러나 캠페인 자체는 아이러니하게도 꽤 재밌다는게 함정입니다, 그리고 진짜 함정은 유겐이 미국이 아닌 프랑스 회사라는 거지.


여하튼 미뽕 한 사발한 주제에 확장팩에서는 포병이 대폭 버프를 처먹으면서 포병을 조지려면 포병이 있어야 하고 그런 포병 위에 포병을 얹어 포병을 쓰지 않는 사람은 머저리로 만들어버리는 전술적 한계를 만들어내 '포병은 현대전의 신이다'라고 빨아제끼던 스탈린이라 쓰고 전설의 빨갱이라 읽는 녀석을 빼다박아버린 것을 보자면 대체 뭔 생각으로 밸런스를 잡은 건가 싶어 당체 이해할 수가 없었습니다만 정작 포병을 제대로 써먹질 못하고 빚 좋은 개살구로 만들어버린 AI의 안습한 꼬라지를 잠시 지켜보자면 아무래도 미뽕을 맞아버린 자가 지녀야할 최소한의 양심은 남겨두었던 모양입니다.


사실 이런 식의 시나리오가 나온 것을 이해하지 못하는 것은 또 아닙니다. 지들이라고 911테러 이후 테러와의 전쟁을 선포한 부시아들부시짱이 그렇게 싫어하던 나치♥♥♥놈들 마냥 전선을 두개로 늘려 쌈박질하다 세계의 경찰을 자처할 정도로 이 구역에서 제일 쏀 놈이었던 그 슈퍼 아메리카 미국을 이렇게까지 말아먹어버릴 줄 당시의 시나리오 작가가 상상이나 했겠습니까. 세상에 나치♥♥♥과 똑같은 짓거릴 하다니 차라리 빨갱이가 낫지그리고인간의욕심은끝이없고같은실수를반복한다


그런 유겐도 이젠 미국이 예전만 못하다는 걸 알긴 아는지 후속작으로 나올 예정인 액트 오브 어그레션에선 미군을 돈 없는 거지(...)로 만들어버렸으니 참으로 갈대같은 마음씨의 유겐이 틀림없습니다. 거기에 지들이 프랑스 회사라는 걸 새삼 깨달은 건지(정확히는 워게임 때부터 이겠지만) 이번엔 미뽕을 넘어 유럽뽕을 맞은 모양이지만 프랑스 회사인 주제에 미뽕 맞은 것보단 썩 정상적으로 보이니까 그러려니 하렵니다.

+ 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.
