Act of War: Direct Action

The Gamers Temple

  • Excerpt: Date: 7/19/2005 More often than not, the purpose of the single player campaign in strategy games is to serve as a trainer for multiplayer play. When there is a story it is usually an afterthought, an excuse to somehow tie the disparate campaign missions together.

  • Summary: Act of War: Direct Action is one of the better real-time strategy games that I have played in a while. The game has a decent back story to accommodate the good and well-balanced gameplay which reminds me of the good old days when I first started playing the original Command & Conquer.

  • Excerpt: A mix of live action and honest to good real time strategy, Act of War could fall apart on so many levels however simply refuses to. For anyone who didn’t get what I meant there, it’s a good game.

  • Excerpt: It was inevitable. Command & Conquer Generals was such an inexplicably successful title for the PC that copycats were sure to follow, and as far as I can tell, Act of War is the first blatant Generals clone to show up on the market.

  • Summary: It's hard to believe that in 2005, someone somewhere had the audacity to make a real-time strategy game stuffed with live action cutscenes. It's even harder to believe that it works. Yet with Act of War: Direct Action, Atari and developer Eugen Systems have managed to turn convention on its head.
  • Pros: Excellent real-time strategy gameplay, Beautiful, gorgeous graphics, Effective live action cutscenes, Great production values, Intriguing plot
  • Cons: There can be a lot to micromanage at times, Some bad acting and accents at times, The story leaves too many unanswered questions
