Product Description

"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 the role of U.S. Army Brigadier­General Jason Richter - a career soldier and former commander of the 1 sl 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. "

3.0 out of 5 stars No witty title available July 12, 2006
By Socrets
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Every once and a while there's a game that sorta comes in outta of the blue and under the radar, the Act of War games are an example of such games. I played the downloadable version from direct2drive since I don't feel like paying both for the original and the expansion. The graphics are wonderful, even at medium settings. The closest game that compares would be C&C: Generals although the planes tend to go through the geography instead of above it but it still ooks good. The base building is just as labor intensive as the earlier C&C games. Resource gathering is interesting, basically it's the traditional resource gathering combined with "capturing" downed enemy soldiers. The story is typical of every military fiction out there, considering it was written by the same guy who did the original. It's the typical "bad guy steals weapon of mass destruction and plots against American people" plot, the type where Harrison Ford will likely play the lead. Naval Combat is FUN!! Amphibious landings, naval bombardments and torpedoes all add a new level of gameplay that is lacking in C&C: Generals. You spend more time trying to kill the other guy in this game than you do managing your base, well sort of anyway. You spend more time micr0managing battles than you do your base, so your focus better be solely on the game and not have another thing like the television competing for atttention. This game is not necessarily for turtlers. It's hard to fortify your base and tech progression goes quickly as does resource gathering. So if you like fast paced games or a big fan of C&C: Red Alert. Then get this game.

4.0 out of 5 stars fairly satisfied August 1, 2006
A Kid's Review
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The expansion for act of war is a pretty good game however even though it says it features naval units it only has them in the campaign. Aside from that it features some interesting new units. Task force talon no longer has to leave their base to fight with some of their units such as the spinner titan missle launcher. The u.s. has more powerful (but sort of overpowered) infantry that can take on some of the consortium's weakest tanks.Along with several new units and upgrades based on special abilities. The consortium are still about the same. The game now has better artillery than it originally had. If you were going to buy it for the naval units then don't. It is still a very good game and is worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good game good price, great value August 22, 2007
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have to say that I am very happy with this game. i like the genre and like the warcraft or C&C style of gameplay. I like this game for what it is and nothing more. It occupied many nights and is still very replayable. I have gone back to it time and time again for a good ground pounding skirmish. I have downloaded maps and cheats for it to expand its game play enough that I am thoughly satisfied that I have gotten my moneys worth out of it.

I would say that this is one of the better C&C style games in recent years, though certainly not the best, it is none the less still very good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Act of War: High Treason July 23, 2007
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Gosh, it took me a few weeks to get this one done. The second part of the Act of War series still had its great gameplay and beautiful wartime graphics but there is something definetly different than the first AoW. This one is WAY harder. There are times when you just begin to build your base and there are already enemy units swarming at your base (this is on standard, mind you). Yet even though that may hold you back from completing the game I still quite enjoyed this. This is a good game to get if you're into RTS style games

4.0 out of 5 stars Like it July 9, 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I am new to gaming. I enjoy command and conquer Generals, Zero Hour & Tiberium Wars. I also enjoy Earth 2160, Civilization, Myst, Ghost Recon & M/S Flight Simulator. The little I have played Act of War leaves me feeling I will like it also. I have had several head injuries and am not as quick as I used to be. I can use the mouse and some hot key commands and find I am fine with my selection os games. I cannot do games which require expert keyboarding skills. Hopes this helps.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much improved over Direct Action April 9, 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I really enjoyed Direct Action, except that I found it too short and too easy. High Treason is a welcome expansion pack that adds many more single-player scenarios. Some of the new units are fun too. The best improvement is that they added the ability to look around the battle field and issue orders while the game is paused, which really should have been in the first game too.

This is the best game of its type around. I was disappointed that multiplayer petered out after a few months. I would recommend it even for the single player. Read more
