Based more on games like Ground Control or World in Conflict than Tom Clancy's previous games, "EndWar" is a real-time-tactics game taking place in World War III.

EndWar's depiction of WW3 is fought between the United States, Europe, and Russia after Russia sabotages European missile defense networks to cause them to attack a US spacecraft. The game takes place in the future, and all the units are meant to reflect this. Gone is the modern-day grittiness of most Tom Clancy games, as well as the fairly plausible storylines. What's mostly odd about the plot is that it's meant to take place in the same universe as Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon, meaning that the three main superpowers, despite having worked together for years, decide to go to war at the drop of a hat.

The goal in EndWar's standard mode is to capture command nodes, which are locations scattered around the map. Controlling half of them starts a five-minute countdown timer; controlling all of them leads to instant victory. The player commands up to 12 units, each a platoon of 4 squads or vehicles. There are 6 types of unit. Riflemen (meant to be elite special operatives, not standard army grunts) are good against other infantry and can capture nodes the fastest. Engineers are armed with missile launchers and various tools, but do poorly against other infantry and capture nodes more slowly. Transports can carry infantry and have good anti-air weapons, but are weak against tanks. Tanks do well against ground vehicles, but poorly against air vehicles. Helicopter gunships destroy tanks easily, but are vulnerable to transports and engineers. Finally, artillery is powerful at a distance, but highly vulnerable at close range.

End War is mainly a command point capture and hold game. It is much similar to Star Wars Force Commander of years ago. It plays smoothly and has no bugs that I've seen. The developers really did a good job porting this to PC. The game is really light on my cpu and video card given that it's graphics are rather good for an RTS. Part of this is the fact that any one side is limited to 12 units (4 vehicles or fire teams per unit). The voice acting is also noticeably good and varied.

I do not like how the camera angle is set to something similar to an over-the-shoulder 3rd person shooter game like Splinter Cell. I would like the game more if it had an option for a free roaming camera, rather than one locked to the units I own.

It isn't in line with the standard of other PC RTS games in terms of complexity and involvement. Micromanagement is not something this game does much while in combat. I don't like heavy micromanagement, but this game is too light on it. It can be a good introduction to more complex RTS games or can be a game for the more casual player who wants to get a little RTS-like action in, without the tedium. I gave it 2 stars on fun rating and 3 on overall rating because I like more complexity and especially because the camera issue is really annoying.

Do we start with the failed activation or the robo support? Then we move on to bad voice recognition and the inability to train that feature. Under cover its a typical Rts in the vein of c and c. The camera view is wild and unwieldly, and the constant pop ups which halt the game, are out of control. I had more fun with the new comand and conquer. their was a strategy there and you had much more control over many more units. The PC version of End War limits you to 5 "rock paper scissors type units, that have to try to capture a majority of check points. ie you have one helocopter unit to cover all the control points on the map. If your into all the between battle cinamatic storylines, you might enjoy the excess of them. Myself I prefer to watch a real movie on DVD, and do battle in a video game. I think the long ago game "real War" was more advanced and fun to play than this. In Conclusion, Ill keep playing, to get my moneys worth. Now I know I wont be tricked into their new soon to be released airfighter program. first time ever in my life Ive been so disapointed. Maybe when its in the $9.95 clearance bin, will I recomend you buy it.

It's an okay game I guess. Graphics are above average and the gameplay is interesting but like just about any other Tom Clancy game it has an air of childishness about it. What it actually is is a very dumbed down RTS game designed to function well on the consoles, which is the real reason there is a voice command system. Beware though, more than a tiny bit of ambient noise can make it malfunction. The good thing is that using the voice command is optional. Most likely on the PC you won't want/need to use it.

So anyway, you can actually finish this game in as little as 3 turns but you can drag it out longer than that and you can play or replay as a different country but what you'll find is that no matter what country you play or what strategy you use the game is always the same. There are some annoyances like the WMD option that you get if you are losing the game but the thing is that once you use it then the other side gets the option too and there's really not much you can do but resign yourself to losing a lot of units. About the only remedies to this is to always attack on two fronts, never jumble up your forces in a small area, and don't try to overwhelm the enemy with sheer numbers. Keep plenty on reserve.

It's cool to be able to upgrade your weapons and armor and the upgrades do work very well, they aren't just for show. You can even change the camo patterns. This feature is, in my opinion, about the best the game has to offer. Enemy AI will at times pull some good tricks out of it's hat but for the most part it's a simple, go through the motions and you're done type of game. Typical of Tom Clancy games in that even on the hardest settings they are never very hard to complete, mostly I think because they were made for kids.
