As the commander of the Ghosts, your mission is to stop the Russian ultranationalist Yuri Treskayev from coming to power. From the hot deserts of Kazakhstan to the towns and villages of Ukraine and the frozen lands of Siberia, you must discover and disable the secret Soviet-era "Dead Hand" bases which Treskayev is using to build an army of drones to seize power. You will have access to full resources to build, train, and equip your team, using increasingly high -tech weapons and armor.

Taken together with additional features including full analog control in 3D game environments, motion and gyro sensors that transfer the movements of the handheld into the game, 3D camera functionality, an adjustable stylus and full backwards compatibility and you have not only a must-have system, but a revolution in handheld gaming.

The game is a strategy rpg which has you in control of a group of soldiers from a top down perspective as you peer down on the battlefield from above. Think Advance Wars and Fire Emblem. Nothing is revolutionary about the gameplay or mechanics, but the entire package is so tight that is tough to point out any great flaws.
The 3D effect is excellent. You can peer deep into the ravines on the maps and smoke will billow up from the ground. It has little effect on the gameplay, but it wholly immerses you into the gameworld which makes the title that much more engaging. Any dialogue or text pop-ups will float above the battlefield, adding to the sense that you are a general god commanding troops from atop the clouds.
But, the most important of this game is the length. I am about 4 hours into the game and only at about 4% completion. This game will easily suck in about 40+ hours of my time, something that no other 3DS launch game will allow. I have attempted some missions on the highest difficulty and had my hat handed to me; this is a good thing, challenging games means more time spent playing.
While many of the other launch games feel like tech demos and have a surprising lack of content and re playability, Shadow Wars will have you engaged for hours.
Shadow Wars is by far the most complete package of the 3DS launch lineup.
With the other games, they apparently weren't specifically made for 3D. The effect is there with the other games, but often the camera is whipping around so that keeping up with the 3D is straining. Also, there seem to be a lot of unskippable scene is the other title. In other games, I frequently saw ghosting effects as I tried to keep up with the 3D.
The 3D gorgeousness of Ghost Recom comes out with every scene. Camera moves are done properly, and the emphasis throughout is always on making the game fun. New types of gameplay are brought in gradually. The beginning plot seems quite plausible -- the team helicopter was shot down by bandits.
The ravines, ruins, houses, figures all look exquisite, and there is no strain at all. I haven't seen any ghosting effects at all. It looks quite good out of 3D, as well.
For the turn based missions, with each one, you can set them at easy, moderate, or hard.
This is a gorgeous turn-based strategy game, one of the best I've seen (and I go back to Langrisser). If you have a Playstation 3, I'll recommend Valkyria Chronicles and Dungeons & Dragons Tactics.Read more ›
You control a squad of up-to six team members and take turns moving across each mission map to accomplish your objectives. Think of it as a glorified game of chess; each unit has a specific role in your team and you use these roles to your advantage against the enemy. If you have never played a strategy RPG, this game makes for a great entry title for the genre. The game will definitely keep you busy for a long time, with 35 main missions and 20 skirmish missions across three difficulty levels. As you progress through each mission, they introduce new concepts that add to the amount to strategy involved in completing your objective, but it never becomes too cumbersome to keep track of all the things that go on. That's not to say that the game is not challenging. On the contrary, when played on the highest difficulty, the enemy team makes fairly smart choices that can put a big dent on any plans you may have had. After you successfully complete a mission, you gain stars that you can use to further develop your team members, adding to their repertoire of strengths, abilities, and equipment. Most other games in this genre have a HIGH amount of customization, but this game keeps things fairly simple and straightforward, instead relying on the nice variety of missions available.Read more ›
This is basically a must buy for any non-casual gamer over the age of 10. This game really goes quite a way in reminding you of the difference between a 2-3$ phone game and a real game. Buy it and thank me later.
