Inside Hotwire 3D

  • Conclusion: The audio component is somewhat plain. Most of the environmental noises you'll hear are quite monotonous. The weapon effects are relatively faint and the delivery of voice-overs is very limited. The music isn’t particularly interesting and you’ll feel like you’re out of place. Overall, Theatre of War is a mixed blessing for fans of PC RTS. On one hand, you get an immersive WWII battles with incredible historic display of “allies vs. axis” type of scenarios.

  • Excerpt: The competition for a realistic yet playable RTS 3D World War II tactical game has another entry: the long-awaited Theatre of War from Battlefront and 1C. This game has been years in development and has been the object of almost continuous buzz on gaming forums. Conversation and hype create high expectations; the final product often has trouble living up to them. Such is the case with Theatre of War.

Theatre of War Review

GameSpot
14 May 2007
  • Excerpt: Word War II real-time strategy game exhaustion is so well established in gaming these days that the genre seems incapable of surprising anybody. Even the standouts, such as Company of Heroes, follow a template so well worn that it has grooves; thus, Theatre of War comes as a shock. 1C Company's take on the old Axis-versus-Allies thing replaces RTS conventions with realistic battlefields, line of sight, and weapon range.
  • Pros: Realistic battlefield sizes, vision, and weapon ranges, five huge campaigns modeled on actual World War II battles spread across Europe, tremendous detail with soldier and weapon stats, solid artificial intelligence governs both your attackers and your soldiers' responses under fire
  • Cons: Unnecessarily slow in spots, especially when battles are first developing, a bit of a system hog

  • Conclusion: For the time being, it's a bit hard to forecast how this game will do once it hits the shelves in 2004. Still, from what we've seen and heard so far, Wartime Command promises to give C&C: Generals a run for its money. Keep an eye out for more updates on this one in the coming months.

  • Summary: Depuis les premiers jeux dits de Stratégie en Temps Réel, le débat fait rage chez les passionnés de stratégie dès que l'on aborde la question du mélange de la stratégie et du temps réel. Et c'est bien compréhensible, car, par opposition au principe du tour par tour, en temps réel et en l'état des technologies en vigueur, il est impossible de gérer un grand nombre d'unités afin d'établir des approches coordonnées sans l'aide d'une Intelligence Artificielle pour vous...
