Nothing flexes our imagination like alternate history scenarios, and World in Conflict delivers one that has us on the edge of our seat. It’s the late 1980s, and the Cold War is far from over. The commies have already made a push to invade Western...

2007 so far has been pretty good to Real-Time Strategy (RTS) fans. Earlier in the year people got their hands on Supreme Commander, after that the legendary character Kane came back with Command & Conquer 3 soon following. So now those big hitters...

The 80s wasnt just about bad music, audacious hair and awesome action movies, the 80s also summed up a time in the world of uncertainty and turmoil between two major powers in Russia and the USA. Thankfully for us in the real world, this "Cold War"...

The Russians are coming! Cold War paranoia makes a mighty real-time strategy game. Frighteningly, its getting less difficult to imagine a world in which the Cold War never ended, the Berlin Wall never fell, and Russia embarked on a disastrous war...

The game itself though, is not a true real time strategy game. Perhaps its just the strategy purist in me, but when I think of this genre, I think of heavy hitters like Starcraft, Warcraft, Total Annihilation, and more currently Dawn of War, Company...

If the Cold War did not end the way we know it, what might have happened? PC real-time tactical game World in Conflict shows us a possible scenario. Instead of the Soviet Union crumbling and the Cold War coming to an end, "Ivan" (as they are referred...

Its an RTS so fast-paced, cinematic, and instantly gratifying that it could almost be mistaken for an action game Its great that the Cold War ended before turning into a global nuclear holocaust, but the real-time strategy gamer in me is thrilled...

I sometimes wonder what kind of computers we would use if no-one played games. It is often said that it is the games that drive the development of new and faster technology and I definitely think that is correct. Who has heard anyone talking about...

Sierra World in Conflict. It was heavily hyped. For months, we couldnt escape the advertisements. Tons of players flocked to the beta and the demo. On its release date, it dominated nearly every aspect of GameStops website. But did it live up to the...

OK, Ill come out and say it – I really dont like the base building aspect of strategy games. Im too much of a SimCity style player – I have to make sure stuff is lined up in just the right order, things like that. Because of this, I end up...

Sometimes greatness isnt about radical new ideas or genuine innovation, but about making more interesting choices about where exactly you steal your concepts from. Most genre games are content to borrow from the same fairly shallow gene pool,...

It is 1988 and the mighty Russian army has invaded the United States, attacking the sleepy city of Seattle and crawling eastward, crushing suburbia under its heavy Communist wheels. You play the role of an American soldier named Parker and...
