Order of War (PC)

 

Order of War is a World War II real-time strategy game distinguished by its accessibility and simplicity. It's easy to learn and easy to play, eschewing base building, unit-level micromanagement, and deep economics, but it's never boring and it offers...

Review: Order of War for PC

 

The World War II genre has been overdone like no other. There have been countless shooters and any number of strategy games. Well now Square Enix decided to publish their own WW2 game and feelings are mixed. Order of War is a Real-Time Tactical game...

War... war sometimes changes ever-so-slightly.

Easily accessible; Engaging single-player

Generic presentation; Limited multiplayer

Order Of War review

 

It's been a while since we've seen a WW2 real time strategy game, so Order Of War is a highly welcomed addition to the RTS base. While most RTS games are either focused on the ancient times (Age of Empires) or the future (Command & Conquer, Supreme...

Order Of War Review [PC]

 

Like fighting games, strategy games have enjoyed a resurgence in popularity over the last few years with titles like Company Of Heroes and Dawn Of War II pushing the genre in new and bold directions. Order of War is the latest to try and make it's mark...

Fast Paced ; Quick Battles ; Short Game

Terrible A.I ; Too Easy At Times ; No Sensitivity to brutality of conflict ; Bad Voice Acting

Order Of War misses the point of RTS games by a wide margin and ends up easy and boring as a result. The combat is fast paced and missions short, but there simply isn't enough here to recommend.

Order of War

 

World War II games are as numerous as the bad decisions made in a college dorm. Gamers are constantly exposed to various aspects of the war even though they didn't live through it. As such, it's easy to start to disregard any game that is set in...

While you won't find much innovation, Order of War is a well crafted RTS game. The lack of satisfying multiplayer is disappointing but the single player game is rewarding enough to keep you coming back for more.

The Good: Outstanding graphics. Clean, simple interface The Bad: Minimal strategy involved. The Ugly: Nothing in particular. I completely understand that it's becoming harder and harder for a game to distinguish itself in the RTS genre. Requiring less...

I think as a player who gravitates towards the more complex RTS games, that OoW is a little light for my tastes. It's almost arcade-like, perhaps appealing more strongly to FPS players looking for a change of pace than the average RTS player. The lack...

Order of War

 

Order of War is a game that takes place during later WW2 in the European theater that allows you to command the American, Russian and oddly enough the German forces . Square Enix is known throughout the gaming community for churning out formulaic...

Order of War is a solid RTS. It's not particularly innovating but it's simple to learn, difficult to master and really fun alone or with a couple of friends. The game does play a lot like a slower less intense Supreme Commander which isn't a bad thing...

Order of War

 

Comes with a side-order of snore

Huge scale battles ; Authentic historical approach ; Cool cinematic camera

Not an iota of personality ; Dull, predictable mission design ; Combat utterly devoid of strategy or tactics

You might hope the game redeems itself in Skirmish or multiplayer? Nope. While both modes are a relief after the constrictions of the campaigns, neither provides enough variety or surprises to be serious long-term propositions. Why a studio with such a...

Order of War Review

 

Tanks should never be this boring

Good looking, some challenging scenarios, tactically sound

Repetitive, skirmish too frantic, too familiar

Order of War shows flashes of genius. A couple of small issues aside, there is never much doubt about where you need to go or which of your troops are in trouble. There's no fog of war - a risky choice - so your mind is focused on what you need to do,...
