Designed from the ground up for consoles, it is a fusion of next-gen technology, superior design and first-class production values behind which is veteran strategy games designer Michael De Plater who's previous titles include the Total War series.

It seems to have got a lot of negative reviews from people who didn't realise that it is was a strategy game before they bought it.
Let's be clear this is not a first person shooter. You won't get to run or drive anywhere. You won't get to aim and shoot at anything.
Instead, of playing the role a single unit you play the role of the commander. You tell multiple units where to go and what to shoot at.
I enjoy strategy games. Being in control of my own army, and chosing the best strategy and tactics to defeat the army of my enemy.
Having read the other mixed reviews here I was wary of getting this game but I shouldn't have been. I love it. It adds whole new dimenstion to strategy game play. Instead of looking down from some imaginary point high up in the sky, you see the battlefiled from the perspective of the units in your army. Switching between units to see different areas of the city, airport or oil refinary you happen to be invading or defending at the time. As a result you see the battlefield in so much more detail. Features of the landscape, such as groups of trees or buildings stop being things you just drive over or around, and become strategic points of cover for your units. If you have a battalion of rifleman out in the open they'll be picked off easily by your enemy. Get them inside a building (where they will fire out of the windows) or in a group of trees and they suddenly become extremely hard for your enemy to beat. But you've got to get them to cover first and they're not very quick. You have to devise a strategy. They could go from building to building or you could cover them with some tanks or you could just ask them to make a run for it. But decide quickly.Read more ›
You play as one of 3 factions (the USA, Russia or the European Federation - a sort of, US of Europe) and each one has 7 types of units:
Engineers (Anit-Air / Tank soldiers)
Transports (Anti-Air / Troops and for quickly moving troops)
Artillery (Long range, massive damage)
Gunships (Anti-Tank / Riflemen)
Command Vehicle (Handles Air Strikes etc)
All of these untis you can upgrade with various attacks, special abilities or extra HP etc.
The voice commands are simple and use a "Who, What Where" principle (Unit 2, Attack, Hostile 5) and picks up on 9/10 things you say with 100% accuracy.
The campaign is a good premise (WWIII) and fits in with what you are doing but after completing it as the USA I felt a little disappointed with the ending movie, although you actually PLAY the story rather than watch.
Loading screens last about 10secs each before a battle and there is no wait between insterting the disc and getting to blow stuff up!
This game would get 9/10 purely because I felt let down after the campaign ended, but the replay value is huge.
To the complainers: Try a harder difficulty or try the awesome online mode. This game is huge + enjoyable but you have to give it a chance!
Hope I Helped.
Firstly you choose a faction which is ethier american joint strike force, europe or russia. I am europe although russia are dominating. America and europe are neck and neck 17/11/2008. At the start of everyday there is a seize fire and the stats of all the games played decide if your faction can advance or not and the areas of battle change depending on this.
When you play you earn credits which can be spent on upgrades which is really good there are so many options that can help you win your matches.
If you like stratagie games this I would say is a good game to get I however dont really play strategy games so its also equally good for
people not used to strategy games.
