I really got totally absorbed in WarGames: Defcon 1. The variety of missions and scenarios were very well done and held my interest throughout. The graphics are fine and the sound effects and music top-notch. I really liked the idea of actually being able to drive around and control the vehicles instead of just issuing commands to place them in selected spots. The only real downside in the game is the poor player AI. The vehicles that aren't under your direct control tend to wander around aimlessly until you catch up with them and help out. Overall I would definitely recommend this title as either a solo game or a two-player contest. Its intense, fast action will keep you coming back for more.

På MGM Interactive hävdar man inte att War Games i första hand är det strategispel det ser ut som. Tonvikten ligger på action och det finns det gott om i spelet. Men det skulle inte ha varit fel med lite mer strategi, speciellt eftersom spelmotorn i sig skulle lämpa sig mycket bra för det. Problemet är att spelet lätt blir enformigt. Det spelar inte så stor roll vilket vapen man använder, det blir ändå samma ihärdiga skottlossning i alla lägen. För två spelare fungerar detta dock utmärkt, och det är rejält kul att sätta efter varandra med dånande kanoner och vinande lasrar. Men för den ensamme spelaren är War Games inte lika roligt som det kunde ha varit.

From what I was expecting out of this game, I was pleasantly surprised. The strategy elements of this game are very minor (at least for me) and they should not scare you off. Then again, my basic strategy was to move from objective to objective and blow the crap out of everything. I guess you could be a little more strategic if you want. Anyway, the gameplay is also fun up to a point and then it will start to slow down because you feel like you have already done everything before. The variety of vehicles really helps things out, and driving the MVIII Walker was very cool. I suggest a rental at least to check it out.

WarGames begint als een middelmatige tanksim maar krijgt naarmate je vordert wat meer diepgang, al zou ik van C&C niveau niet echt durven spreken. Met wat meer strategische functies en grafische verbeteringen kan 3D-oorlogvoeren nog wel eens uitgroeien tot een heel leuk gamegenre.

While WarGames: Defcon 1 may not have allowed me to relive one of my favorite films, it is still a solid game with a fairly good back story. Dabney Coleman may be nowhere to be found here, but once you get past this slight oversight (all games shou
