Wonderful game for its time

Summary: I love this game. I salivated so much when I was younger to getting this, but I didn't have the money until some time ago and decided to buy it. I had played on it on my old Compaq Presario with Windows Vista on it and it ran nicely, though the computer ran hot with it on. I loved the premise and the immensely detailed graphics of the game, along with the interface. Overall, I would argue it is one of the top 3 best RTS games I've ever played.
Summary: With an arsenal based in actual modern inventory and well told plausible story line, this game is by far my favorite RTS ever. In game revenue is based off of oil derrick production as you play out the campaign in response to an international terrorist event. There is no limit to the your base building capabilities as a lot of current RTS have adopted. So building your resources, your weapons, and army to totally annihilate your enemy is still encouraged.
Summary: The game is great and the story line is pretty good. You need to build up troops and bases as the terrorists keep attacking you. The only draw back is that you can get through the entire game fairly fast. It is too bad there is no expansion pack or follow up games.
Summary: act of war is like command and conquer meets tom Clancy lol using real life situations, resources, and even politics to make for a great action/strategy game it takes the concept of the command and conquer series and puts a real life twist on it i recommend this game for anyone who loves a good strategy game or just a fun game in general
Summary: If you like any kind of strategy type games i.e. command and conquer, starcraft, age of empire type, this game is for you. The campaigns are very well made and the time is set in the present or near future. I think the best part of the game is that the game maps are really well built. They literally took citys like san franciso, washington dc, etc. to create maps. You get to build units, kill the enemy, and blow up buildings in real cities (legally) =P.
One of the great RTS games that you never hear about

Summary: This is one of the best RTS games that I have played. I love the "what if" type of game that applies to current events, such as high gas prices and terrorist attacks. I think the actors were good in their rolls. The graphics of the are stunning. Launching an attack to retake the capital building and then the white white house, thats great. The different units are a good balance as well as the different types of forces you command.
