4 out of 5 eggsGreat Game

Pros: Visuals are crisp.
I love the ambient sound. Adds a good realism to the game.
It can feel as if you are in a war room giving tactical orders, pretty cool. Yunno? like the movie War Games.
This is a fantastic Multiplayer game! The human element in multiplayer adds so much strategy. No game is the same when playing in a full 6-person match.
It is pretty freakin cool when you see a ton of your nukes slowly decending on neighboring, undefended countries.

Cons: I rated it 4 eggs because not every game has it all. -also dont misunderstand, this is one of my favs.
Having said it is a great mulitplayer game, I have discovered this game is not at its best in single player. In the single player, there are certain actions the CPU takes that are predictable. At first, the cpu would annihilate me, but after the learning curve, it was fairly easy to win.

Other Thoughts: I recommend this game to you, the reader, and all of your friends. It is very cheap and has great value as a strategy game.
I usually play once-a-week with some buddies and no game is the same. We talk a whole ton afterwards about what happened in the game and about the strategy we tried to employ.
This game has a cool ambient feel to it and can be played many different ways (by changing game types). The different game types is a good way to flip your strategy upside-down, learn something new.

4 out of 5 eggsFun nuclear war game

Pros: Fun game
Great price
Mods are available free online

Cons: A bit too simple
Single player requires a connection to the internet

Other Thoughts: I have only played single player, but the game is fun and engaging. The strategy elements are limited--I wish there were more units or more extensive gameplay options to make it a bit more complicated. If you like Sid Meier Civ games in which there are multitudes of options and playstyles available to achieve victory, you might not like how simple this game is. On the other hand, if you like a game where you can sit down for 30 minutes and quickly enjoy a global war from start to finish with a very short learning curve, you'll probably like this. Overall, the price is worth the fun factor.
