Faces of War: After reading a number of reviews prior to purchase I was some what sceptical about whether this game would be any good however the saying is correct “Never judge a book by its cover” or in this case “Never judge a game by someone elses review”.
*Graphics are very good, the graphics only become scratchy when completely scrolled in ( Zooming in to view action closely using scroller on mouse ). Of a particular note, the water looks amazing.
*Each of the maps is completely distructable, houses, ground, trees, bodies blow apart etc.
*Detail needs to be broken down as there is so much of it:
- All units/vehicles/crates in each map have an inventory which you may pick up by item meaning you can pick up MG42's etc off tanks.
- Vehicles consume fuel and ammo which needs to be re-stocked.
- All vehicles take on damage depending where they are hit, for example by aiming at tank tracks they break meaning the tank can't go anywhere but can still fire.
I could go on and on.
*Three lengthly and difficult campaigns.
*The game does tend to drain resources if playing for a long period. *The game does have a couple of bugs which are mainly resolved by the latest patch however some are still not fixed which result in the game crashing however they are very minimal.
*The AI is a little stupid at times but overall fairly good.
Summary: A definate must from me, every strategy enthusiast out there should have a try as it kept me going for many hours with not a second of boredom. It brings many new aspects which I wish other game producers would include in their games.
You won't be disappointed.
