It’s the end of the world as we know it, but it’s not that great

Playing through Endwar was like an ego trip with the voice command system. Only problem was that it got old quick and once you take that away, there’s really not a lot to the strategy game. It feels really stripped down and simplified with its rock-paper-scissors scheme and doesn’t have a lot of personality after the prelude is over. Not quite the Clancy strategy game that I was expecting and definitely not a lot of mental meat to chew on aside from figuring out how to win each battle.

Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment are working on a version of World in Conflict to come out on consoles next year which is great as that’s still my benchmark for WW3 craziness, but Endwar isn’t entirely bad. It’s a decent enough RTS, just not anything special outside of the voice thing.

Anyway, if you’re interested in my review, here it is.

The Eiffel Tower transforms into the Ultimate Superweapon for the Allies! Actually, no it doesn't.

The Eiffel Tower arrives on the battlefield to crush its enemies and hear the lamentations of their women.
