Quick – what pops into your head when you hear ‘Order of War’? Probably that it is a war game, and perhaps that it is a World War II game based on similarity to other game names. But beyond that? With Medal of Honor you got the image...

The World War II genre has been overdone like no other. There have been countless shooters and any number of strategy games. Well now Square Enix decided to publish their own WW2 game and feelings are mixed. Order of War is a Real-Time Tactical game...

RobI expected something a lot better than what Order of War turned out to be, even though deep down I kept saying to myself,”Don't, DON'T expect it to be a masterpiece!” Well it's no masterpiece, it's not trying to reinvent...

World War II games are as numerous as the bad decisions made in a college dorm. Gamers are constantly exposed to various aspects of the war even though they didn’t live through it. As such, it’s easy to start to disregard any game that is...

The one aspect that raises its head a little above ‘ordinary’, venturing into ‘quite good actually’ territory is the Campaign mission design, which is both varied and well-balanced. For this reason, Order Of War is just about...

Where are you hiding it Order of War? Where’s that nugget of novelty, that pinch of personality that sets you apart from the rest of the Company of Blitzkrieg set?It’s certainly not in your two nine-mission campaigns. They’re as...

As far as resource management and build orders go, I'm a complete novice. So, as a casual RTS fan, I remember feeling apprehensive the first time I hopped into Wargaming.net's WWII RTS game Order of War. Thankfully, this Square Enix published...

In case you hadnt heard, a tiny skirmish broke out just over seven decades ago, and happened to include some of the worlds foremost authorities in war machinery. The conflict in question is, of course, the Second World War, an event surpassed in...

It is unfortunate that due to the over saturation of World War II games, I can't help but approach a new one with a slight cynicism, wondering whether this one will be something special or simply another paint by numbers interpretation which offers...

Great mechanics and a beautiful presentation make Order of War shine brightly among some incredible WWII strategy games. Anyone who enjoys the genre should give this one a...

From the opening cinematic, you’d be hard pushed to notice this as a title developed anywhere but Europe. Colourful arrows reminiscent of those in classic British comedy Dad’s Army are strewn on top of grainy footage of a wartime map,...

Der Versuch sein Repertoire auszubauen, gelingt „Square Enix“ in diesem Fall nur bedingt. Ist man ehrlich, so riskiert diese Spieleschmiede mit solchen Produkten den mehr als guten Namen, der mit „Final Fantasy“ und Co....

Kun ajattelen Square Enixiä, mieleeni tulee ensin liian moneen vyöhön pukeutuneita japanilaisteinejä ja suurta saippuaoopperaa, ei niinkään realistinen sotastrategia toisen maailmansodan ratkaisuhetkistä....

International Review By Gamers on 80

Ein solides Strategie-Spiel mit ein paar kleinen Erweiterungen. Spannend und fordernd zu gleich. Leider mit ein paar kleinen Tonproblemen und etwas dünnem Multiplayer Material. Ansonsten wäre durchaus noch eine höhere Wertung drin...

International Review By Zeitgeist Game Review on -

Order of War is an untraditional real time strategy that presents an extremely challenging and dreadfully boring game play experience, mixed with great visuals, hundreds of units on the screen, and troops that move slower than a snail. Frankly, I...

International Review By GameCaptain on 82

Order of War wirkt dafür, das einmal mehr der WW2 als Setting herhalten musste, doch recht erfrischend. Das Arcade-Spielprinzip macht Spaß und fordert gleichzeitig. Zwar bekommt man als Story nur wieder Aufgewärmtes vor die Nase gesetzt,...

International Review By Gamer.no on 70

Order of War er lett å lære og lett å like. Spillet hopper på en måte etter World in Conflict, der fokuset er like mye på hektisk action som strategiske avgjørelser. Enspillerkampanjen er delt, slik at du kan spille...
