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. "

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.

I think writing down a review should be optional. Just like how it used to be. I just want to give a couple of stars, clear my order history and get on with the rest of my day. But now we can't send a rating until we give a review on the product we ordered. I used to only write a review if there was something wrong. I f not, then I give five stars. I don't time to write a review for everything I order so I'll just copy and paste this on every order. MAKE THIS SECTION OPTIONAL. Thank you and have a great day!

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. I hope they make a new one. This does not work well with newer operating systems.

This game has so many issues with just getting it to work out of box. Do not waste your money. If it installs and I say if, because it is highly unlikely to work, it will have issues with activation. This game was either pirated heavily, or the manufacturer made the method of activation so difficult that legitimate copies and serial keys wouldn't work. I have tried 2 hard copies of this and also a purchase on Steam and it has produced the same futile results.

A Kid's Review on August 1, 2006
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.

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.
