Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

The attractive graphics and realistic sound effects in this real-time strategy sequel don't make up for the unfriendly interface and horrible AI. Real War: Rogue States is a sequel in the Real War series, in which the United States is locked in conflict with a large terrorist army. The majority of units on both sides act similarly, though the terrorists give their comments in Arabic. We like the combat models and the special effects, but got frustrated with the command interface, which consists of a mess of tiny buttons with strange pictures. You just can t tell what they mean. Issuing orders is hard, because the units are very small. But the game s AI is the worst part. Although you can toggle among formations and set units' behavior, they react unpredictably. Too often, your units won t respond to your orders and will just stand still while an enemy is in range. We didn't have much fun with this demo and don t expect many strategy fans will.
