Endwar is a strategy RTS on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC that takes place in a near future world war 3. The story is set in a world of declining resources, where Russia is the worlds leading superpower, and Europe and America have split their alliance. Russia, now the world largest producer of oil and natural gas, uses its' new found wealth to build a huge army, while America starts a space project called the Freedom Star, a satellite that will ensure American safety. Meanwhile, Europe has built the Shield, a set of energy shield that protects the world from nuclear war. However, when the Freedom Star is blown up on liftoff, and Copenhagen is attacked, America and Europe start a war, before realising that it is Russia that is behind the attacks. With the world now locked in a savage war, you come in.
Endwar is a slightly repetitive game, and only offers a few units. Although it has a solid multiplayer, the campaign has no story apart from the intro, and often you will get bored of doing the same, repetitive tasks with the same units again and again. However, this is spiced up by Endwars' voice command system. This works flawlessly, and is a nice addition to an otherwise average game. The graphics are good, and the frame rate is always maintained at a good speed. The level of detail is stunning, and you can zoom all the way down and see the battle from the soldiers views. You can even see their faces and individual equipment. Also, the multiplayer has a unique feature called the Theater Of War. This is an ongoing WW3, where you pick your side, customize your army and fight on ever changing frontlines. The results of the battles faught during the day are added up at the end of the day, and then the war continues, with countries gaining or loosing territories. Over all a well balanced game, but one that lacks a motive and variety. Not a game to set your heart on, but a nice addition if you've got money to spare.
