Looks great, lots of fun

User Rating: 9 | World in Conflict (Collector's Edition) PC
Most of the other reviews have said it all. The game looks fantastic, and it really is a lot of fun to play. Haven't hit multiplayer yet...plan to do so tonight. It is definitely different than your typical RTS...no bases, no resource gathering, etc. You handle a relatively small amount of units. Initially, I was a little disappointed about this, but as I played, I found that it was nice to be able to manage my units so easily.

As the Gamespot review says, it's more like an action game masquerading as a strategy game. That being said, there is still strategy here, and a good deal of it. You do have to know what unit works best against others. Nothing is good against everything, and I haven't seen a unit that downright sucks against everything. The story is decent...it will remind you of every Tom Clancy story ever written, but it doesn't pretend to be more than that. Overall, a very entertaining and worthwhile game.
